Finally a seafood restaurant that serves more than shrimp and fish. We started out with the Oysters/Shrimp Appetizer which was great and very fresh. We then had the Pappadeaux Platter which was huge and had so much to go in a to go box. Lastly, for dessert we had the chocolate brownie and a piece of cheesecake. I definitely recommend... More

We have eaten at a number of Pappadeaux locations and this one was another good experience. Spacious dining area with floor to ceiling glass walls to let you enjoy the outdoor view while not having to actually be outside. Our server did a good job and the food was great.

Very predictable - always good. One of my favorite wedge salads. Seafood skewers are awesome - just too much food! Margaritas are very good too. Service was a bit hit-or-miss but was ok.

I'll preface this review with I have a shellfish allergy. Pappadeux's has very limited options for those who have shellfish allergies. I've been several times and I've had the dirty rice, fries, chicken tenders, fried catfish, blackened catfish, baked catfish, garlic bread, red beans (very spicy), bread pudding, brownie (too rich), and catfish poboy (the bread is very hard).

Looking for a great patio? This is it. We enjoyed a patio table and the happy hour menu, which was delicious. The mini po-boy is plenty for a full meal.

I went after a business meeting with coworkers for the first time. The ambiance is perfect, relaxed and refined. The food was delicious. I got Raw oysters which were sweet and tender, blackened catfish with etoufee. It was sublime. Great place to go for business or a date night.

We both like and wanted seafood for our dinner and this was just a short drive from our hotel. Found a good parking spot in the front and near the entrance. It was early so the restaurant was not yet very crowded. Did fill up later so plan accordingly. Got seated quickly, our waiter Kris L took good care of... More

The only reasons I didn't give this location a 5 is that it is very loud (which can make TN hard to hear the person next to you) and a bit on the pricy side. That said, you do get what you pay for, which is very good service and food, which lead to a very good experience. I will... More

10 of us went to Pappadeaux's on Fat Tuesday for dinner - the restaurant's busiest day of the year. The restaurant was beautifully decorated for the holiday, and, of course, it was extremely crowded. But, despite the relatively slow service for drinks and food, our server, Amy, was fantastic. I absolutely loved my pecan Manhattan cocktail, and the bluepoint oysters.... More

Haven't been to a Pappadeaux in more than 10 years, and now I remember why. Don't get me wrong the food is good, and you get plenty of it. But the prices for standard seafood are on the higher end. This isn't a 5 star restaurant, where you expect the higher prices, nor is it a boutique place where you... More
