There were very few restaurants in this area of the airport. We "settled" on Pappadeaux. What a wonderful surprise! Our shrimp was wonderful and the gumbo was spectacular! We would definitely go back if we were passing through Houston. The service was amazingly fast. Excellent waitress as well! Thanks Sade!

Always look forward to visiting one of the restaurants in this chain. This time I had the crayfish bisque. Delicious and plenty of protein. Have had the etouffee numerous times but was in a hurry today. My only gripe is that this place is a bit pricey.

While waiting for our overseas flight, we found this restaurant in the airport, and, as it turned out, it was a good choice.....seated immediately, we had a very nice waitress approach our table with menus, and from there on, she was attentive and professional. My husband had the branzino and I had the lobster salad; both were really delicious, and... More

We popped in to the Pappadeaux Seafood kitchen I commend the staff for going out of their way to accommodating my wife's gluten intolerance by going to another restaurant to get corn tortilla chips to substitute for bread. Sarah the Chef on shift made the decision to accommodate my wife. The other food we ordered was very good as well.... More

I sat at the bar. Service was prompt and friendly. While I dined there was a seemless shift change, great job!

My habit for airport travel allows for one hour or more in the terminal before boarding. Enjoying a good meal before the flight is something to look forward to. First time flying out of Houston Hobby, we picked Pappadeaux and were happily satisfied. Considering it as a non-airport restaurant makes the pricing acceptable, if you are not in a rush... More

After a week of cruising and eating very good food, we went to the airport and had to wait for a few hours for our flight. I was so happy to find this restaurant at the airport. I asked if they had soft shelled crabs and the said yes. The service was great and the crabs were amazing as usual.... More

Food was great as usual ... every time my daughter travels thru TX we have to stop, we had a small delay in our plane decided to get a late lunch early diner. Our server took our order then we didn't see her again until it was time to pay. We had to stop other servers and take them away... More
