We always stop here at least once per visit to Dallas. The service was great Preston went out of his way to take care of us.. First time we could not get crab fingers (out of season). They are superb. The beefsteak tomato salad was very tasty. And the Texas Striped Bass was delicious

They are seasonal but absolutely amazing! The three wheel motion drink will get you right where you need to be as far as beverages are concerned. The service can be hit or miss but I ignore that for good food! Visit if you can...I definitely wish they were in more cities!

Pleasantly surprised when we ended up here for dinner! We had a wonderful dinner out with friends for Valentine's weekend. Food was delicious, wait was short and our server was attentive. We will go back.

The 4 of us had an early lunch and started with boudin and crab/spinach dip - all tasted great! We ordered shrimp wrapped in bacon, seafood salad, grilled catfish with red beans and mixed seafood shish kabob - everyone enjoyed their food. Waiter did a great job - price was right for wonderful food! Pappadeaux's is always great - wish... More

I'm a seafood lover so I really enjoyed this restaurant. The prices are moderate and the food is good. Portions are large. You may experience a wait depending on what time of day you go but the restaurant has a large seating capacity. I went to the restaurant (different locations) twice in two days!

We had great tasting seafood here, but the service was not on par for Pappa's usual expectation. Confusion over a free appetizer for loyalty club members along with a long delay in getting our entrees negatively impacted our experience. Since we were not in a hurry and on vacation, it wasn't a big deal. Would think they would offer something... More

Love Pappadeaux's but this one misses the mark in several categories. My recommendation is to go to one on Lombardy where the atmosphere is quieter and frankly, the service better. This one is very loud, the location has low ceilings and it's very loud. For special occasions they do have a wine room but it was hard for us to... More

Grip first: we were sitting on top each other and I mean with other tables. It is like they try to shove as many tables into one spot. (I don't mind meeting new people but on my terms) Now on to the Food: It was fantastic as useally. No complaints there. You get what you pay for. You really need... More

My husband's bacon wrapped shrimp were fabo. We ordered the Greek salad to start, which was a great beginning to a lovely meal. My shrimp dish was served with grits and was a culinary treat. Large prawns, seasoned with a Cajun spice combo and served with a silky, flavorful base of Southern grits, drizzled with some spicy shrimpy reduction. Hubby's... More

We took my parents for a Christmas dinner. Our server went above and beyond expectations to make us feel welcome, and his suggestions were spot on. The food was amazing, and there was something for every taste and requirement. Love, love, love this place!
