Wow. Wasn't expecting the service nor food quality for an Airport Terminal location (not that there's anything wrong with airport stores). Ambiance - first class and cozy - makes you feel like you walked off the street. Real silverware. Nice menus. Full service bar. Well dressed wait staff. Very attentive and conversational waitress. We ordered the lump crab meat three... More

I don't even know where to being to describe the cluster of my last visit here. Service is terrible, employees clearly don't care about much more than talking on their cell phones, the wait is about 3 times longer than it should be for food to arrive. Will never make the mistake of ever going back here again for any... More

Dropped in before flight and several things we asked for, they were out of... diet soda? Really? It was 1pm... Out of bread to go with soup? Really? Don't waste your time... not like the Pappadeaux Restaurants in the Houston area...

My wife and I had 3 hours to kill on a connecting flight and found this restaurant on Yelp. At first we were a little concerned about the overwhelmingly good reviews. They are all legitimate! We had the best service ever from a young man named Jonathan, who could not have been more friendly or professional! The atmosphere can be... More

Oh my. I am pretty sure I have said a thousand plus times that I hate airport food. Today I am going to rescind that statement, at least for now. Pappadeaux's in the Houston airport rocked it. Service, A1. Food, A1. Price, well... Check it out. Thanks Chris (our server), you ROCKED IT!!

Did not expect such great food and service at an airport. We had good food at other Pappadeaux locations (Phoenix), we found the same quality of both food and drinks (cocktails) here

I usually stop here for a meal when I have time at IAH. I've never been disappointed, although the prices have climbed steadily over the years, and have pretty much reached my ceiling. This time, I arrived for an early lunch, and not wanting a huge meal, opted for the fried oysters (US $ 20 plus tip). The freshly shucked... More

First, the waiter (Jonathan) was a guru. He knew every ingredient in every meal and gave spot on recommendations and eluded to how he would eat based on where our 30 hour-travel-stomachs were at. The vibe makes you feel like you've escaped an airport which is an accomplishment that holds a fine candle to the food. We ordered the Gumbo... More

It is nice to find a good restaurant at an airport that has food worth eating and drinks that make flying a little more comfortable. If you have the time between flights this is a good place to spend it.
