I've been going here since I was a kid. It's a family tradition for over 20 years to go with my dad and siblings and have dessert first. They've almost always had great customer service and great food.

You better go hungry! Even at lunch, the portions are large. The quality of food is a 10, and so is the service.

We usually eat at Pappadeaux Seafood at least once on any visit to Dallas or Houston for the past 20 years. We are always pleased with the consistency they have on quality and quantity of food. No it is not a fine dining establishment but it is one of a few restaurants outside of Louisiana that you can find that... More

We always stop here at least once per visit to Dallas. The service was great Preston went out of his way to take care of us.. First time we could not get crab fingers (out of season). They are superb. The beefsteak tomato salad was very tasty. And the Texas Striped Bass was delicious

They are seasonal but absolutely amazing! The three wheel motion drink will get you right where you need to be as far as beverages are concerned. The service can be hit or miss but I ignore that for good food! Visit if you can...I definitely wish they were in more cities!

Pleasantly surprised when we ended up here for dinner! We had a wonderful dinner out with friends for Valentine's weekend. Food was delicious, wait was short and our server was attentive. We will go back.

We ordered shrimp wrapped in bacon, seafood salad, grilled catfish with red beans and mixed seafood shish kabob - everyone enjoyed their food. Waiter did a great job - price was right for wonderful food! Pappadeaux's is always great - wish... More

I'm a seafood lover so I really enjoyed this restaurant. The prices are moderate and the food is good. Portions are large. You may experience a wait depending on what time of day you go but the restaurant has a large seating capacity. I went to the restaurant (different locations) twice in two days!

Thank Georgia T
