                      I give it 3 stars because the food IS good...but it isnt consistant. We have been here a few times, but the food is never the same...the last time we went it actually wasnt very good and my shrimp wasnt cleaned. We had a server who forgot about us, then when he did come around it took 20 minutes to get our drinks and AN HOUR to get our food. We were there forever, and no manager came up to find out what was going on, but he did pass by our table and asked the waiter if he was taking care of us. I just wanted to get out of there so I didnt bother complaining. Im sure we will go back, just because I like their lobster bisque, but be prepared for a 3 hour lunch or dinner experience.

                      We're new to the Austin area but have dined at Pappadeaux's in Dallas and always enjoyed it. Needless to say, we were pleased to find a local restaurant and more than that, with our most recent dining experience. We dined with 29 of our neighbors from our community Empty Nester's dinner group on Wednesday evening, 4/14/2010, at 6:30 pm. We were seated in a private room and our server's (Betsy and America) were very efficient, pleasant and accommodating. Everyone was very pleased with their meal choices and portions, and their cocktails. Would I dine there again? You can bet on it! Well done Pappadeaux's Seafood Kitchen and thanks for the fantastic dining experience.

                      Pappadeaux has been a usual dining arena for my family and I for years. However, upon stopping in yesterday I was totally put off. The waitress, Mudian (?), refused to serve my daughter an alcoholic beverage--and understanding the policy on underaged drinking--I ordered a drink myself and my daughter a water. Later in our dining experience, my daughter had a sip of my drink and the manager, a short blonde that looked about sixteen, immediately took the drink off the table in front of my guests and told me she would not serve the table any more drinks because she saw her take a sip of my beverage. \nThis was completely inhospitable and a big turn off. Upon then we paid our tab and left. \nAside from this incident, the waitress seemed to have no knowledge of the menu or the ability to take our order without interrupting her conversation to another one of the waitstaff members.\nI hope this isn't going to be a trend for Pappadeaux, it used to be a great restaurant.

                      This was my first trip to Pappa's. I had the half dozen oysters ( I got 7) and the Medium order of the fried Alligator.\n\nThe alligator was crispy, not greasy, and the breading had a kicky flavor. The creole sauce that came with it was spicy without overpowering the taste of the alligator. I've never had alligator before and was quite please with the order.\n\nThe oysters were just that raw oysters on a half shell. It came with the usual horseradish and a shrimp cocktail sauce. They were good even though I was eating them in a month that didn't end in ""R"".\n\nThe french bread was a nice bonus.\n\nThe restaurant is large and they had plenty of tables that can accommodate large parties. I went at about 5 on Saturday and got a seat right away.\n\nFor the medium order of alligator, oysters, bread, and water, my meal was $15.05. I did leave a little hungry and went to the Austin cookie lounge for desert.

                      always one of my favorites. usually get great service and love everything they serve. i had my wedding rehearsal dinner there. i wish they had a bigger party room.

                      We moved from Houston to Austin several years ago. Therefore, we have eaten at Pappadeaux numerous times. However, we've only eaten at this location twice. Both times it was crowded and we had to wait awhile to be seated. But what can you expect when there's only one location in the Austin area? During our last visit, we had the Crispy Fried Alligator appetizer and shared the Seafood Platter. The food was really good and portions are generous. I tried the Swamp Thing drink for the first time and really enjoyed it. The only complaint I have is that there should be more locations here.

                      i went to this location at lunch during the week and it was literally at a medium roar. Although the server was hustling around, his section seemed too large and we were often waiting for him to get back around to us. I ordered the fried oysters and they were over-fried, which is really unappealing in an oyster.\r\n\r\nOverall, for the price of the food it was frustratingly loud and i was disappointed. There are far better seafood restaurants in austin.

                      Out of all the seafood restaurants in Austin, this place is by far the best! Do yourself a favor and order the redfish! The service and the atmosphere can't be beat. Just make sure to come with an empty stomach because the portions are plentiful!

                      For the past 4 or 5 years I've treated my mom to Pappadeaux for her birthday and Mother's Day. We both love their great food especially the stuffed crabs. We usually split a Pappadeaux platter because the portion is the perfect size for 2. We eventually always fight over the stuffed shrimp though.\r\n\r\nAll in all, I've noticed a lot of people commenting on the fact that it's noisy, but it's no noisier than any Baby A's restaurant.

                      I love the way this restaurant looks, the cajun creole lousiana feel. I was expecting amazing food with the crowd it had but the fried shrimp was average and the gumbo was good but very salty...i swear i would feel myself starting to retain water...The restaurant is very loud and busy, not good for a quiet dinner. Very expensive for what we got and ive had better. I tried the bread pudding and was scared because its soo hard to get good creole bread pudding and I was pleasntly surprised. it was good. not as good as in New orleans, but good.

For seafood its your best option for it.

                      We were on an ""eat your way through Texas"" vacation and were enjoying BBQ almost everynight. Being from Oregon, we started to miss seafood, so we saw this in a AAA book of all places and decided to give it a try. It was really loud and busy as they were having some sort of special that night, but we went in anyway. We decided on the catfish and dirty rice dish and it was totally amazing! Portions are huge and the fish was delectable. Extremely good value for your money and a fun atmosphere! Service was top rate. You can't go wrong!

I am so glad we did go. The service was Excellant and the Food was to Die For. We will be visiting Pappadeax regularly. Thumbs Up.
