What these people can do with fresh fish is renowned. Fried dishes fade into battered oblivion. White linens elevate the experience any time of day. Sharp service.

A part of me didn't want to dine here as it's a chain but it did have really good reviews. We tried to go here on a Friday night around 8:30 and there was an hour and 20 min wait. We left and tried again around 6 on Saturday. It was a 30 min wait but we snagged seats at... More

Went there for an evening business meeting. The service was welcoming and knowledgeable. The big lobster tank in the front of the reception desk was great. Had a mix of entrees including shrimp, calamari, crab cakes, blackened catfish and even a steak. All the dishes were very good. Will definitely be back.

This place was a little loud, but the food was awesome!!! We had their oyster duo which was unbelievably good and the Alligator for appetizers, the gator was so tender. For dinner I had a few lbs of crawdads and my wife had a seafood pasta dish that was loaded with shrimp, sausage, lump crab, prawns , and crawfish. Service... More

The lobster bisque at Pappadeaux is superb and we have never been dissatisfied with any of the dishes. The only drawback is the location of the original Pappadeaux in San Antonio, near the airport and a major shopping center, surrounded with heavy traffic. However, as of April 21, a second location opened at the intersection of I-10 and 1604 in... More

We have had been in Pappadeaux, Atlanta, whereas food was delicious. Unlike it here, food was salty, and dirty rice was undercooked. My family of 4, we ordered a Jumbo lump crab cake which was ok, but, Jumbo Shrimp Brochette came with dirty rice, Grilled Tilapia and jumbo shrimp served over dirty rice, a Cajun Combo which is blackened catfish...

This was my first time eating at a Pappadeaux. I live on the west coast and sadly there are none on my side of the country. Great food and atmosphere! The server was so nice and patient! I will most definitely return the next time I'm in Texas. The only thing puzzling was the bathroom door. The paint was chipped... More

The food is really good, but in order to enjoy it you must wait in a huge line to put your name on a list to get called in the next 20-40 minutes. At this time they point you over to the bar where it's overflowing with people. Service is quick for you can spend 100 bucks with just a... More

This one of the several times I have eaten here and is still as good as ever. They have a huge menu and they have almost any seafood you want. Has a high following so during standard lunch/dinner is very crowded. We always go during the "off" hours.
