Good Food...but missing in other areas!
Pappadeaux is consistently good for food. Definitely a strong point. From appetizers to desert, I've never had a bad meal here. The seafood is your best bet. It can get really loud...especially on a Saturday evening. So be prepared.

However, the hostesses were disappointing. They advised us of a wait time of 45 minutes before our table will be ready. In the meantime, we head to the bar and order a couple of appetizers and drinks. About fifteen minutes later, its announced over the speaker that our table is ready. Great...we got a table earlier. I check in and advise her that our appetizers had arrived...and she advises us to go back to the bar and grab our appetizers & drinks and follow her to the table. I was absolutely floored! I am still amazed that she did not help (or get us assistance) from moving from the bar to the table. However, their we were....grabbing our own plates and drinks and weaving back & forth to our table.
Lastly, to cap off the evening. The valet lost our car. Unfortunately, when they parked the car, they did not mark it's location. 20 minutes...we got it back.
Pappadeaux is reliable and consistently good for seafood. Unfortunately, other service elements are lacking. Recommendation: MIXED BAG.
