On vacation with my daughter, we like Papadeaux in Austin so well that we returned for a second meal. The manager and wait staff are exceptional. They will tell you that they can customize a dish especially for you if that is your request. With the gas-lit lanterns and bow-tie clad waiters, you do feel like you are in the... More

I had a business meeting here and the service was excellent by the staff. I ordered the chicken Caesar and it was hands down the best salad I have eaten. Believe me there is a difference in a good salad and a basic salad and they served up the perfect meal. We met at 11:30 and we didn't have to... More

Even though this is part of the Papas' chain of restaurants, it has the consistency and quality of an individual eatery. It is large and somewhat noisy but, it IS the best. The wait staff is well trained and the service is excellent. The wife had flounder covered in a wine sauce that was to die for. After my dozen... More

We lived in Texas from 1990-1996 and this was always one of our favorite places to eat. Every time we return we go back to it and we are never disappointed. The service and food are both excellent!

Back for another conference. I wasn't really hungry, so I had a small cup of gumbo and some boudin. The boudin was great and was served with a horseradish sauce that had some zing. Had the prettiest waitress in the whole joint waiting on me too. Most of the stuff is a bit pricey but there are some good portions... More

I got a couple of oyster dishes and a salad, plus wine. The bar staff were friendly and very attentive. Their version of oysters rockefeller was way too cheesy for me.

We had an order of fried oysters and an order of fried shrimp. 7 oysters small to medium and 8 butterflied shrimp. Lots of fries. The bread was great. Take your banker with you when you go. We ate at same chain store in McAllen TX and same story: light on the seafood/heavy on the fries. I would not recommend... More
