True Cajun Ambiance – I am a true cajun!!! Born and raised in New Orleans and relocated after Katrina this is where I go to get my Cajun Food Fix! i highly recommend it! the atmosphere is amazing but I definately suggest making reservations
Excellent seafood – Big menu with great seafood....Excellent service with a reasonable price for Atl. seafood. Great portions of food with a great fresh salad for salad lovers
not too big fan of cajun – Pappadeaux is a Cajun seafood restaurant. Hearing about the place for so long I finally got to go. I had alligator for the first time and it was good and tender. Almost like chicken! The food here is a bit on the spicy side. I liked the place but I don't think it was a the place for me. I recommend it for anyone who enjoys Cajun seafood. Oh and the prices are decent for their portions/seafood.
Excellent Food, Stellar Service, Huge Parking lot – I went to Pappadeaux for a business lunch. While the restaurant was extremely busy, it was relatively easy to find parking in the large parking lot and we were seated promptly. The crawfish etouffee was incredible and our server was top notch. My colleagues also loved their dishes. Our server was very busy, but very attentive and friendly. I love this place! This is an incredible restaurant to take out of town guests. Everyone should experience the wonderful food and service at Pappdeaux.
I love the Fondue!!! – There is a wait if you go at night, but the fondue and pasta Mardi Gras is so worth it! They have huge servings and I always have to take some home (the pasta is so good the next day). The staff is friendly and I always have a great time whenever I am there.
We love Pappadeaux! – Our entire family loves Pappadeaux! We live in California and we don't have a Pappadeaux (please, please come to Southern California, Pappadeaux!), but fortunately, we have friends in Atlanta, Denver, and Chicago! We have eaten Pappadeaux in four different states so far! The crawfish bisque is delicious! Yes, it is a chain restaurant, but we always have wonderful meals there, no matter which one we are in! I have also eaten real Cajun food in Louisiana, and even though it was good, Pappadeaux is just as good, if not better. It does get busy, so plan on either a very early or very late dinner. Great bar atmosphere, too. I have just booked my next trip to Atlanta, and we're going straight to Pappadeaux as soon as we get off the plane!
I'd rather eat at Captain D's – I will never understand the appeal of this place. My husband and I went to Pappadeaux for lunch and the greeter, hostess and waitress all asked over the noise of the restaurant "Have you been here before?" When we answered "no," we were advised that the food is rather spicy. Okay. We love spicy. I ordered a blackened salmon special (covered with a cheese sauce, scallops and crawfish) and my husband ordered the fried catfish plate. We also ordered a shrimp cocktail appetizer. We both had iced tea. The shrimp cocktail was okay. The quality of the shrimp was excellent, but there was no spice or flavor. My salmon dish sounded so delicious that I was excited to try it. It was tastless and completely bland. My husband's catfish was gorgeous, but it also had no flavor and was WAY too greasy. Where is that spice????? Our bill totalled $60, $70 with tip. We could have eaten at Captain D's eight times for that amount and I would have enjoyed the food more. The fish is certainly less greasy and has more flavor. In my opinion, this is an overly hyped, suburbanite restaurant that appeals to people who have nothing better to do than wait in a line for an hour for mediocre and expensive food. After a couple of attempts to eat at Pappadeaux for dinner, we went at 2:00 p.m. on a Saturday and had no wait. Atlanta has so many privately owned restaurants that serve unusual and delicious food. Even Popeye's or Bojangles has much spicier food than Pappadeaux. I agree with another reviewer that the Atlanta Fish Market has much better food. The ambiance is more romantic, quiet and upscale and the food is a thousand times better. I do want to commend our waitress at Pappadeaux. She was very attentive and efficient. We'll never go back to Pappadeaux though. I think the key to Pappadeaux success is in the size of the food - BIG!
Good enough to wait for... – The food is excellent, but the wait more oft than not, is quite lengthy. I have gone in parties of 2 or3 as well as parties of 8+. In both cases, I was required to be patient awaiting availability. In the absence of reservations, you are at the mercy of chance. If you are already starved, you may not want to endure the wait.
The food is great, once you get to it.
I agree Fondue is excellent – As a true Creole for South Louisiana I would give the Fondue at Pappadeaux a 10. Fried Seafood is great to. The more traditional Creole dishes are less Louisiana but here in Atlanta this is the closest one would get to Creole/Cajun cooking.
Great Fondue – If you go on Friday or Saturday night expect to wait an average of an hour. And no, they don't take reservations. If you don't feel like waiting then go before 6pm. As for the food, try the fondue. It's the best I've had. The appetizers are actually better than the entrees. Either way you'll leave full.
