Visited Greenspoint location. Food was excellent but service was awful. Hostess was rude and unfriendly. Waitress was slow and unattentive. Floor manager was ignorant. I understand the establishment is busy, but well below this chains and other restaurants standard. Still recommend Pappas, but NOT the Greenspoint location.
Well, I will never return to this establishment or any of its cousins. Food was bland, but what was worse was the sudden wave of nausea that hit me at about 3AM. I have not vomited that violently in years. Nor have I ever ridden such a wave of fecal explosion. What made this night truly awful is that I both of these events occurred simultaneously. Now, I'm not a doctor (I am an MBA), but it seems like these events will only happen when the establishment is serving rancid products or one of their food handlers has fecal matter on his hands.
So, unless you want to spend $30 on midnight diarrhea and vomit, you should probably stay away from this place.
Great Seafood – If you love fresh fish this is the place to go. They also make great toppings full of crab, craw fish and shrimp to go with them.
My Favorite Seafood ... all time – After only 30 years of patronage I finally feel qualified to give a restaurant a review ... and it is the best I can possibly give.
The food has been consistently outstanding (i asked that only one meal be re-done during that 30 years ... and they bent over backwards to make that one right). I have had consistently good service, but then I try hard to be a good customer (you know, like treating each wait person as a really valuable person ... not a table slave)
My secret meal? when I started frequenting the place in 1981, they were known for their "Red Fish Beignets" ... and they still fix them for me!! My favorites? ... crab cakes and just about everything else on the menu!

Best Seafood in Houston – I've been going to Little Pappa's for years and it is my favorite place to go for seafood in Houston. The staff are alway courteous and friendly, they have great specials and you don't get the "chain restaurant" feel that you do in most other Pappa's chain eateries.
A small, noteworthy link in a chain of restaurants known for quality fish and appetizers. – The Scene
As the name suggests, this Montrose eatery is a smaller (and less frantic) version of the popular Pappas Seafood House operations. Expect to dine with an eclectic crowd ranging from charcoal-suited River Oaks businessmen and their well-coiffed spouses to casual, hang-loose loungers from the bohemian quarter.
Fried or pan-broiled fish and a variety of shellfish-based sauces lead the menu. An order of just-right spinach crab cakes in creamy wine sauce, crowned with a zesty pico de gallo, is far too good--and too filling--to serve simply as an appetizer. Pair it with a cup of gumbo, chowder or bisque and you've got a first-rate meal. And don't overlook a Greek salad that's larger and more appealing than you might imagine. Desserts are only so-so and easily avoided. After wrestling an entire fried seafood platter to a draw, that may be a blessing.
Great Seafood!!! Terrible Service – Best Blacken Catfish and clam chowder I have every had. Almost the worst service that I had as well. Waiters are trying to take care of too many tables at once. Poor guy that waited on us was getting pulled in every direction. Water was never refilled, finally had to ask another waiter for more tea. Besides the service, the seafood is fresh and very tasteful
Excellent – Great seafood restaurant for business, pleasure or just family. Fresh fish always, great salads, and professional service. It's the feel of the fancy restaurant without the price. A definite recommendation for good seafood.
