I eat here about once a month. It is a bit pricey but pretty good. The bread is awesome. I always eat clam chowder and fried oysters. The soup is very good and always consistent. The oysters vary from damn good to I actually wish I had just gone to a Long John Silvers. If you are from out of... More

This place was great! We had Frog Legs & Alligator for appetizers and they tasted great. I had shrimp and dirty rice and it was great! Then for dessert we had banana pudding...you guessed it it was great as well. If we are back in Albuquerque we definitely will be back. ENJOY..🍤🍤🍤

The shrimp and grits was really good, with creamy grits and succulent giant shrimp in a very nice sauce. The swordfish, unfortunately, was tasteless and obviously frozen. For the price I expected better. The frozen Margaritas were very good.

Our meals were delightful (shrimp po' boy with seafood gumbo) and mixed seafood grill with dirty rice). Our server was attentive and helpful, but not intrusive. Lovely, relaxing lunch!

Just visited for the 2nd time in a year and it was just as awesome as the first time. We started with the fried alligator bites, which were awesome, and the oysters. My main course was the Fillet mignon Oscar, it was delicious. My wife had the crab legs, they are far superior to any restaurant around. Buddy of ours... More

We have been to Pappadeaux many times on our way for flights to and from New Mexico. Their seafood - oysters to all the rest - has always been fresh and carefully done. Their chefs know how to do seafood in a New Orleans style really well. Yes, it is busy and bustling, but that is what New Orleans should... More

Staff was friendly and courteous. Restaurant was clean and comfortable. Server was attentive and friendly. She never let my Dr. Pepper go empty. Food was average and overpriced for the size of serving.

Had dinner here on a Friday nite. The place is huge and so was the crowd. We had about a 20 min. wait. Waiter was efficient and friendly. I asked for 1 soft shelled crab and he said no problem. It was delicious. My husband had Gumbo and fried cat fish and it was excellent also. We were a long... More

Ambiance, location, service, wine list, FROG LEGS, grilled fish skewers, asparagus and spaghetti squash - perfect dinner for two. Large portions - keep that in mind. Highly recommended and, if in town, we will 100% coming back.
