Always try to eat at a Pappas when I am in Texas. Food is always superb, atmosphere is warm and service is top notch. Pappas doesn't skimp on portions. I always leave stuffed and happy I went.

My favorite seafood restaurant in Houston (and actually other cities like Cincinnati ). Food is always excellent, as is service. Red snapper is the must in Houston but anything you choose I’m positive will be delicious.

I had a four-hour layover at Houston Hobby and decided to start my short vacation early with a meal at Pappadeux. I don't often do major meals out like this, so I was delighted that this one was 5-star in every aspect. The restaurant was...More

Truly spectacular seafood options. Not a great restaurant for strict vegetarians, but great for those seeking to explore a variety of seafoods and delightfully plated dishes. The pecan pie was out of this world, by the way.
