On a layover at DFW, which i have done many times but had no clue that Pappadeaux's had a restaurant there. Located on the lower level in almost a secret location lies this amazing restaurant. I have eaten many times in the city of Dallas at several locations. This was, like the others a great meal. I did not have... More

I had a quick bite at Pappadeaux in Terminal A of DFW. It keeps the standard of want you expect at Pappadeaux at other locations. The service is quick and efficient, which is important for Business travelers. If you are a seafood lover like me, you wouldn't be dissapointed.

Definitely one of the best best choices for a GREAT meal..at the airport OR out and about in Dallas. I ran down to get a table and had time for an entree...but the oysters tempted me and the gumbo tempted me...ooooh the list is long my friend. What I did have time for was the Chilean Seabass with the jumbo... More

When you first come up to the restaurant, you might well ask where it is. There is only a sign and an escalator. Get on the escalator, and you descend into the depths of the airport and arrive in New Orleans, or at least a good version of the city’s cuisine. Unlike many airport restaurants, Pappadeaux Seafood Kitchen has some... More

Louisiana origin restaurant where you can specially enjoy fish, shrimp, crab and lobster dishes. Good quality of ingredients in each dish. Also, great quantity of food in each plate. There are also pasta and salads, which are good too. Big desserts! Medium range prices, about $18 per plate. If you´re planning to visit it, you must go with an empty... More

We had a layover between flights and were not disappointed with our choice of restaurants! Three of us had po boys - the plates were HUGE with more fries than 3 people should eat. The restaurant itself is very nice, Art Deco in decor, located one floor down in a nice quiet area. Allen, or waiter, was outstanding and we... More

I travel through DFW Airport quite frequently and have always enjoyed stopping at Pappadeaux Restaurant. Brianna was my server and although very friendly fell short a bit on the ordering. She took the order, did not write anything down, and had to come back to the table twice to clarify what I ordered. At least when the plate arrived it... More

Pricy but good. Tuesday night at 8 dinner at the bar. Me and four other people ordered meals where they ran out of 1-2 sides. Waitress told me they were out of the squash risotto and recommended the sautéed spinach. OK. She came back 5 minutes later to say they were out of the spinach. The Redfish was very good.

When passing through DFW, I always make a point to eat at Pappadeaux. The food and service are outstanding. Try the tuna burger!
