I remember when Papadeaux was the go to place. No more. Lots of fried food; overwhelming volumes of chips and salads and dressings that just are not fresh. Why does everyone serve gloppy dressings; what's wrong with good olive oil and vinegar or even lemon.
Houston offers lots of fish restaurants so avoid Papadeaux and find a good place. The price at Papadeaux is as much as it is in a good fish restaurant.
Additionally, the restaurants are large so the noise level is over the top.

I was feeling tired after a long day of meetings and almost hit the hotel restaurant instead of venturing out for something better - I'm very glad I decided otherwise. I chose to sit outside and enjoy the perfect evening temp and my waiter was new and not very knowledgeable, but the food was excellent. Having never tried redfish I asked him if it was similar to trout, he said he didn't know but he thought maybe it was - umm NO! I ordered the redfish pontchartrain, and LOVED IT! The redifish was a whitefish, very similar in flavor to a mahi mahi but lighter in texture, and the butter wine sauce was so good I even enjoyed a piece of bread to soak up the leftover. The lump crab meat and shrimp that topped the fish were also delicious. I chose to skip an appetizer and saved room for dessert, but the brownie was less than impressive. I think I should have had the oysters instead.

If you haven't had the opportunity to visit a Papadeaux and enjoy Louisiana style food. I would highly recommend that you try Papadeaux. They are a small chain restaurant located mostly in the Southwest. However they are expanding into other regions. I have ate at several locations and they are very consistent always good. The gumbo is outstanding and the seafood fantastic.

Wait staff friendly and yet professional, prompt service. We had a private room, as it was a business dinner, and enjoyed good food, nice room temperature throughout the meal, and delicious appetizers, including alligator!
