My husband and I decided to have lunch at our favorite place before attending a performance of Fiddler On The Roof. We love the food and atmosphere here. We were seated promptly and our server, Aidan, was "the best"! The menu is extensive but we chose our favorite foods of catfish, crab fingers and seafood gumbo. I ordered a drink... More

Everything in this restaurant is 5 stars. I love the crab dip (appetizer) and the sweet white wine. Today I tried the Chicken Linguine Picayune and it was excellent. My only issue is... some items can be very salty; just chase it with LOTS of water. I also recommend the Swamp Thing as a drink; EXCELLENT (please drink responsibly). I'll... More

One friend does not care for seafood so he ordered the cajun chicken tenders with fries. He received a serving of 6 or 7 large tenders with a medium heavy batter... More

We came to Pappadeaux Seafood Kitchen specifically for a two 1 lb. lobster tail special that they were running for Pappadeaux's 30th birthday. We arrived just before a big dinner rush and were seated quickly. We were served immediately with warm bread and butter and we put our drink order in. One of us ordered a drink called a Cat-30...

A bad sign, no greeting. But we were promptly seated. The food was better than I remembered and expected. Good gracious thre seafood... More
