Wow! A plate full of crawfish and fries: delicious! Battered and seasoned just right. The large portion was big enough for two people. I also had the banana cheesecake: excellent! It was the perfect cheesecake texture with banana cake inside. I really enjoyed that. Lastly, I had the first kiss cocktail. It was well mixed and tasted great! Robert is... More

The weather was great and nice patio. Once the sun goes behind trader Joe's it's amazing! Started with the handcrafted cocktail with shrimp and crab. I could eat the chips daily..... We had the halibut special with a side of mushroom risotto. It was very very good. We have come here before but this time the meal and service were... More

We showed for dinner on Saturday. What a mistake! Service was mediocre... empty glasses and a wait to get out order taken or even drinks. When the food came out, it was tasteless and not worth the price. The Chilean Sea Bass was dried out and flavorless. The Filet Mignon with Chilean Crab had 5 dime size pieces of crab... More

The red fish is always good at the papa locations. They have several around town and up into Dallas. The bar works as a speed bar so be ready to have a drink. Salads are very good as well. The place is always clean and the service is good.

Friends recently took me to this restaurant to celebrate my birthday. It has been one of my favorite restaurants for many years. I had the Snapper Pontchartrain, which is a red snapper filet covered in an extremely rich sauce of crabmeat and shrimp in butter and brandy. It is so good it must be sinful, and so rich that you...

We decided to celebrate a birthday at Pappas, and we are so glad that we did! This was a dining experience... not just grab some food and head on! The atmosphere was great, the service was wonderful, and the food was delicious! We really enjoyed our meal, and will return soon!

You really have to wonder how a pretty well known place can get reviewed here and the name isn't even listed correctly! This place has been Little Pappas Seafood Kitchen since I first dined here in the 1990's! It's a smaller version of the usual Pappas Seafood Kitchen restaurants you see in other parts of Houston but just as good.... More

This was more than a 4.5 button rating on TA, but I was disappointed with the place in general. I felt like I was dining in a 60's tweener restaurant (between a diner and classier restaurant). The food was OK. My sea bass was undercooked a tad, but fair. There just wasn't a lot of extra flavors accompanying the dish,... More

I ordered a apple Martini it was almost all alcohol. I ask if I could get more apple added to even it out they wanted to charge me. I never had that happen befor. The bartender made it wrong and wanted to charge me to correct it. Don't know if that bothers you but it did me. You judge if... More
