ALWAYS BUSY – This place is always packed. Even the bar it is hard to get a drink. Everytime we have reservations we still have to wait a while for a table. The servers seem to be nice and knowledgable about the menu but I highly suggest NOT going with a large group. For my aunts birthday we went as a fmily and there were about 10 of us, My uncle is a very generous tipper and tipped 500 dollars on the tab and the 2 girls did not even than him and they obviously saw the tip. It will be dissappointing if you go in a group because of the wait and not having drinks refilled.
Best Cajun/Seafood Restaurant in San Antonio – Me & my husband have been dining at Pappadeauxs' for 15 yrs and think it's the best! My personal favorite restaurant in the whole city! Every time we dine there, the food is consistently delicious and the atmosphere is divine! They also have live music on occassion which is also great! Beautiful outdoor patio with lush foliage and fountains. We've had fresh steamed lobster, oysters, mahi and so many other wonderful dishes and they've all been FABULOUS! Unlike some other smaller restaurants that don't care about good customer service, Pappadeauxs always has a manager available to tend to any complaint (if you even have one), and they are always gracious, kind & understanding. The waitstaff is also first class. Can't complain about any bad visits in this category. Would put this restaurant at #1 of my "Must Dine At" list!
If my tastebuds died tomorrow, they've lived a blessed life! – We just moved to San Antonio, and mostly I've been cooking at home. I really can't compare Pappadeaux to other area seafood restaurants, but I absolutely loved my experience here. Since we chose to grab a table on the patio, we were sat immediately. We had the Boudin appetizer, and I can honestly say that if my tastebuds died and fell off tomorrow, I have now lived a full culinary life and would count myself lucky. It really was THAT GOOD! We split the Greek salad, which is plenty for two, although the dressing was a bit too brassy for a Greek salad, in my opinion. The salad was prepared for us fresh at our table, which I felt was a really nice touch. Having spent more years than I care to mention working in restaurants, I get a little annoyed when I can tell that my salad has been made ahead of time and stacked up in the fridge. Also, though I can't have gluten, the bread looked, smelled and even sounded fresh, hot, and crusty. My husband had the sea bass, and he loved it. I had the Texas Redfish, and although it might be a lot more fattening than the traditional fish-dish (as it is prepared in butter) it was completely worth the extra running I had to do the next day! It was paired with the highest quality and most flavorful vegetables I have ever had at a restaurant, and everything was seasoned perfectly.
The only detraction on the menu was that there were very few "stand alone" fish entrees. Everything was topped with at least one variety of shellfish. While our waiter was VERY attentive to my allergy issues, and went the extra mile to make sure that I wouldn't become exposed to the shellfish (I just had them leave it off) it seemed like I was paying for something I wasn't getting. I would have preferred some menu options that didn't require any tinkering.
Other than that-- I can't wait to go back!
Delicious High-Quality Cajun Seafood – I've dined at this location numerous times and have never had any complaints. Their staff is extremely accomodating, the atmosphere is perfect, and the food is exceptional. Will be a customer for life :)
A worm on the Oysters!!! – I just went to this place with my family and we ordered 2 dozen oysters, the ones for $3.95 a dozen. My nephew noticed something moving on one of the oysters. To our surprise, the thing was actually moving!!!! It was a super nasty worm. We had one of the employees call the manger for us, he came back and said "someone said everything is ok" and we said again: "we want to talk to a manager". This "manager" lady came wearing an apron and told us in a very calm tone that the worm on the oyster was normal!!!! that it was a "natural occurence"!!! How's that for a delicious meal and excellent customer service?!!! How extremely discusting!!! So...if you want to run the chances of bumping into a nice moving worm on your oysters, or shall we say: "a natural occurence", (according to the manager) on your oysters... Go ahead and go to this place. Soooo discusting!!!!!
Great place for a family gathering – Great food ,nice music and cajun atmosphere!Take a date or the family!
Not just great seafood! – I went on a Saturday night of the rodeo so it was packed, but I was perfectly content waiting at the bar, the bartender was attentive & timely. Kahlamari was wayy too salty. I ordered the filet mignon oscar AMAZING. With crab meat on top, a delicious sauce and good sized portions. Wonderful food, and all in all great place to eat & socialize
Great Food & Drinks – We flew in from California and stayed at a hotel nearby. We saw the parking lot full and asked at the hotel if we needed to make a reservation. He said no, but that it was mostly a seafood place. We were seated immediately and our waiter was a gem. Didn't have to wait long for the food, recommended certain food in detail and the drinks were perfect. The filet mignon was a big portion and so tender. If the atmosphere is right, waiting an hour is no big deal whereever we go. I highly recommend it. Marcy
Good seafood - worth the wait – Good Food, Worth the Wait :)
Portions are huge – When I am craving seafood, this is my place. The portions are huge and delicious. I like their fried calamari...it is always tender and crispy. Their dirty rice is so good, it has a great kick to it and the seafood is fresh as San Antonio can get it. You can order your seafood any way you want it; fried, blackened, etc...I have yet to have a bad meal here. It can get very busy very fast, so if you come at peak times the wait can be up to 30 minutes or longer. The service is good but the noise level can be bothersome. Like I said the food and service is good, the place is fun and loud, the portions are huge, and the desserts are out of this world (bread pudding and key lime pie) but the prices are a little high. So it is alway a treat.
