Pappadeaux Seafood Kitchen Westmont – Back in May my sister, mother and myself enjoyed a very nice lunch at the Westmont location, the decor was welcoming i especially liked the pathway leading into the restaurant. Our waiter was very attentive and everything he suggested was very tasty i was initially scared to try the fried alligator he suggested the sampler platter now i can't wait to go back and order that alligator to go everyone should try this restaurant and the prices were very reasonable oh yeah the gumbo is the best i have tasted

Horrible service -cooks were fistfighting – I have been to this restataurant a couple of years ago when it opened and was very excited because I loved the one in Dallas. But I went back there last week and our service was simply horrible. Waiter "Cory" was extremely rude and forgot everything. We had to get another waiter 5 times to get our stuff because Cory was nowhere to be found. Then on top of "not cooked enough food" we witnessed a fist fight between 2 cooks in the kitchen which our 2 children heard all the nasty swearwords that were exchanged. I will never go there again-simply awful

Decent Cajun seafood – Pappadeaux serves us pretty good Cajun flavored seafood. The service is very good but the restaurant semms to be overcrowded and noisy. The interior decor does not lend itself to a good dining experience. The food itself comes in large portions (as usual) and everything seemed fresh and seasoned. Overall it was a good dining experience.

Terrible service, mediocre food. – Based upon the good reviews that I read on this, and other sites, my husband and I took a friend who was visiting from the UK, to Pappadeaux's. Once we were seated, we waited for fifteen minutes before the waiter showed up. I ordered a cocktail before the meal--which arrived twenty minutes later with my sandy and lukewarm chowder. There was no bread brought to our table until we were almost done with our soup--which was ultimately no great loss, because it was over-soft, and chewy, as if it had been microwaved. I ordered the New Orleans fillet--a tilapia--which was a nice enough piece of fish, but covered in a gloppy sauce. Very overpriced. My husband ordered fried catfish which was fine and our friend ordered shrimp creole which had lots of shrimp but was nothing special. We ordered some mixed vegetables to go with our meal which we had to chase the waiter down to get. We had to chase them down for everything. We were very embarrassed to have taken our friend there and we will never go back.

Always returning – This place is fantastic, both my wife and I enjoy it each return we have made.

Try the Fondou appetizer...its great.

You must always experience the "Swamp-Thing" when you arrive.

If you plan on taking kids, do not take them on a Friday or Saturday night, overwhelming packed sometimes.

We visit early when the kids are with us.

This lively seafood shanty attracts families and Creole cravers with its fresh catch fixes. – In Short
Nautical decor and a N'awlins vibe prevail at this boisterous chain known for its family-friendly atmosphere. Fried alligator is a popular beginner when available. Oysters Pappadeaux with crabmeat, spinach and hollandaise sauce offers an alternative. Gumbo, po boys, shrimp etouffee and crawfish are among the entree essentials. Desserts include bread pudding with bourbon sauce, sweet potato pecan pie and praline cheesecake.

Good Experience – A friend recommended us this place and we had a very good experience! The food and the service are excellent! We had to wait some time (20 min on a weekday) so Ill recommend you arrive a little early.

Great Experience – I have been here several times, and have been so pleased. The food (I've had shrimp, scallops, tuna and desserts) is wonderful, and the service is great. Make reservations, and on a very crowded night you'll only have to wait a half-hour or less, but lots more time w/out reservations (and you can wait at the bar). The shrimp caesar salad was incredible -- grilled smoky shrimp on top, and the shrimp cocktail has big and meaty shrimp. Scallops had a delicate sauce, and chocolate desserts are the best. It was romantic on Valentine's day and the server gave me a rose (great ambience upstairs especially). Good place!

Pretty Great...Overall – Pappadeaux is a great place to eat if Cajun is your flavor. The wait staff is very knowledgeable and attentive. I have Broiled Salmon Orleans and it is always so tender it melts in my mouth. Their dirty rice is a little spicy, much to my pleasure. One thing is lacking: the shrimp. It is Red Lobster quality for a much higher price. Its not meaty enough and kind of limp. The breading is not crispy has no real flavor. Fortunately, this was the only thing on Pappadeaux's menu that disappointed me. The fried alligator appetizer is hot 'n spicy and to die for. The desert tray boasts rich and flavorful delectibles. You have to try their sweet potato pecan pie. These are two flavors that I never imagined combining, but they thrive in unison. It is served warm with a generous scoop of Hagen Dazs vanilla ice cream... HEAVENLY!!!
