I also loved the drink I had,twice,the Naw'lins punch with a slice of watermelon on the side.Such a wonderful compliment to a great meal!
horrible. one of worse meals I've ever eaten. i got a wedge salad that had at least a cup of dressing on it. where is the lettace?? nasty bitter dressing.
then, i got zuchinii ribbons..........absolutely tasteless. i got a side of spaghetti squash........so much butter? on it...........i did eat the squash and the bread. and alot of ice tea.
I felt like purging.
my colleagues said same thing...........their fish was too salty to eat, etc, etc.
whoever the chef is there......on richmond/Kirby area..............go get a life. go find something fun to do because you aint payin attention. i have never had a complaint about the Pappadeux on Westheimer, west of Galleria. i will never go to this one again.........truly nasty lunch.
Incredible Service – I visited the Richmond location recently to have a surprise birthday brunch for my mother's 50th birthday. Gracie was our server and I could not have asked for better service. She came out and greeted us to tell us the table was ready. She, alone, waited on 9 of us. She was very accommodating and honored my requests. I paid for food and non-alcoholic beverages. I was very worried about how separate drink tabs would work, but she handled it perfectly. They allowed me to take my own cake in and held it in their kitchen. When it came time to sing happy birthday she set a chocolate plaque and candle on the cake as well as served it. Thank you Gracie. You made my mother's brunch a worry-free fun time!!! By the way everyone loved the buffet brunch. We all had seconds.
BEST SEA FOOD EVER!!!!! AND DRINKS!!!!!!! – WE WERE ON A TRIP AND WAS STAYING AT THE DRURY INN, IN HOUSTON. WE ASKED FOR A GOOD RESTAURANT FOR SEA FOOD. THE CLERK TOLD US ABOUT PAPPADEAUX. SO WE WENT A LITTLE BETWEEN 1 AND 2 IN THE AFTERNOON. OH MY GOSH!!!!!!!!!! ALL THE FOOD, YOU GET A VERY LARGE AMOUNT. ARE WAITER WAS NEW TO THE RESTAURANT BUT HE DID VERY !!!! WELL!!!! HE ALSO TOLD US ABOUT THE PORTION AMOUNTS, IT REALLY HELPED THERE WERE FOUR OF US. WE LEFT STUFFED. THE RASPBERRY MARGARITTA'S ARE TO DIE FOR. HAVEN'T FOUND ANY THING LIKE IT SINCE. THE PRICES WERE A LITTLE HIGH WHEN YOU READ THE MENU. THAT'S UNTIL YOU GET THE FOOD. GREAT FOOD GREAT PRICE. WOULD LOVE TO GO BACK AGAIN.
Good service, horrible management – Pappadeaux has okay food, but I don't recommend any of the sauces, as they are all extremely greasy. Management treats their employees worse than dirt and are extremely unprofessional. The kitchen is also ridiculously slow and makes mistakes even when the restaurant is not busy. The bar is even worse when it comes to consistency and speed. Nothing except the fish on the chalkboard menu is worth what they charge. The only good thing about this place is the servers - they are all very nice people. I worked there, and it was the only place I've ever quit due to personal reasons.
Excellent seafood dishes, especially their crab stuffed mushrooms – I was a little wary of going here given that it is a chain, potential for crowds, etc.. but we were pleasantly surprised and had a great meal here. The crab stuffed mushrooms were superb - bathed in a light garlic butter sauce and perfectly baked. Went great with our glasses of Sauvignon Blanc. I then had grilled salmon with sauteed shrimp on top accompanied by fresh steamed vegetables which was very tasty. Huge portions though so definitely plan for that when ordering.
We will definitely return!
My favorite restaurant in Houston – Pappadeaux has by far the best seafood in town! I don't even like oysters but I gladly eat them here. The food is always cooked to perfection. They are so consistant . The appetizers are so varied and all so good that it is very difficult to decide, but try them all you won't be dissapointed. Everything on the menu is worth trying for that matter but my favorite is the shrimp brochette! The quality and taste are simply unsurpassed. The restaurant on Richmond and Kirby has the most ambiance but I visit them all simply for the great food. If you like seafood this place will quickly become you favorite restaurant. I have a girlfriend that surprized her husband for his birthday by flying him to houston just so they could go to Pappadeaux for his bday dinner! Thats how good this place is!
Superb – I am from St. Louis and enjoy Pappas every visit to Houston...and Chicago. If it is not a chain, I wish at least one could be built in St. Louis where we love cajun cuisine...(i.e. Soulard area). Great Food. Especially love the fondue.
Great Seafood For A Houston Restaurant – I'm orginally a Marylander, so I'm not easily impressed by seafood dishes, although, Pappadeaux's did have some great seafood. The shrimp etoufee was amazing! Sunday brunch was also good. It's pretty amazing to find a restaurant that served quality buffet style food
Not even a chain – to Whommac, it is too bad that you don't know the history of the Pappas Restaurants. In no way shape or form is the Pappas company a chain. Pappas is a privately owned company and family ran, by the Pappas. To those who read the previous review about hiding the fish with heavy sauces, read the Chalkboard and enjoy the fresh fish with NO sauce. Pappas is awesome and I highly recommend it to all!!
