I visit Pappadeaux about twice a year, but yesterday we had the best experience yet. We had the most professional, attentive, delightful waiter that we have ever had anywhere! The food is always good, fresh, hot, unique, probably the best cajun food in the Chicagoland area. Our server Keith took our dining experience to a whole new level. I'll be... More

Went for an early Valentines Day lunch. Sat at the bar and enjoyed some of the best oysters I have had in quite a while. Nice, big, sweet gulf coast oysters. Paired with fried catfish and dirty rice. Each was done quite well. Mike, the bar tender, was an excellent host. Look forward to our next trip.

Wow it's very busy here. Drinks are good, service is great, and staff is awesome. The food took longer then I thought to come but it's okay. This location is just as great as the location in San Antonio , TX. I would have given five stars but it took over an hour for the food to come.

Had dinner with about 20 work colleagues. we reserved the back room, which was a bit crowded for our group, but we (and the two servers) did the best we could to negotiate the space. The atmosphere is nice, and it looks like it would be great on the outdoor patio in the non-winter months. Our server (sorry, I don't... More

Pappadeaux has a big following and is almost always crowded. Service and staff know what they are doing. The atmosphere is upbeat and I like that. Only average rating for me food-wise. Alot of deep fried options and too greasy for my taste. My hubby loves the food though- the gator the chicken the shrimps. I think the crab mac... More

We dined at Pappadeaux, one of the best seafood restaurant in Chicago on a Friday evening. Even though we need to wait for 15-20 mins to get a table, it's worthy for wait. Excellent food, good quantity and nice ambiance even if the restaurant was crowded and amazing service (hats off to Philip who served us last time visit to... More

Almost every dish here that I've tried has been tasty. This is not a low calorie seafood place. Everything is rich in texture and flavor. Make a reservation or be prepared to wait on weekends! My kids love the alligator, but the crawfish are my favorite!

We met family there for dinner on a Sunday evening. Very crowded but we were seated immediately. Noise level was very high, but we managed to talk and have a good time. The food was excellent, I had the crab cake with asparagus, would not recommend the asparagus unless you ask them not to salt it! Mine was so salty... More

My friends and I dined at Pappadeaux on a trip to Chicago. Everything was so good and perfectly seasoned. The atmosphere was nice as well. If you love New Orleans style food, you must make a stop at Pappadeaux.

Thank Christa S
