This restaurant is worth the trip on the Skyway to Terminal A at the DFW Airport. Our server was 'in training' so she had a few struggles, but that is expected. We had calamari as our appetizer - excellent - it had a lemon flavour that was really unique and very good. Their steaks were awesome, the baked potatoes were... More

I was super surprised at the relaxing atmosphere and comfort at the sub-level Papadeaux restaurant in Terminal A, DFW. I've eaten at several if their locations and this one has them beat hands down. I quite enjoyed my dinner away from the hustle and bustle. My salmon burger was grilled to perfection as we're the shrimp and my drink was... More

Worth going out of your way. Full Menu. Food excellent! Though you take the escalator down to the lower level, the decor in the restaurant gives the impression you are at street level. Old world pub with fine wood work, brass accented Bar, gorgeous lighting.... Ambiance is wonderful. Waitstaff was gregarious and accommodating. Looking forward to our layovers in DFW....... More

We had a great meal at this airport restaurant. Our table was near the kitchen, so it was a bit noisy. Both the service and the food were very good. Everything was freshly prepared and served hot. We were much happier at this restaurant than the one we stopped at on our way out of Dallas.

We had a layover in Dallas and had lunch at Pappadeaux. I had the shrimp roll and my husband had the large prawns. The service was very attentive and the taste of my husband's dish was incredible. I would have probably enjoyed it more if I had more time to savor the food but it was definitely high quality. I... More

I have been to pappadeaux in Arizona and it is a wonderful experience. I had a 3 hour layover in Dallas and spied the Pappadeaux's here in the airport. What a treat!! A 'real' restaurant away from the craziness of the terminal. Food is excellent. I had the gumbo and a seafood platter. Definitely the place to go if you... More

I fly several times a year across the country and if I have to make a connection my go to airport is DFW. Pappadeaux has a great menu and the atmosphere is perfect. Located below departure Terminal A Gate 24 with wood paneling and comfortable leather seating it is nothing like being in an airport. Full bar, varied menu of... More

On a recent trip through DFX I had a long layover and I decided to eat at Pappadeux. I had eaten at Pappadeux in Houston and was hoping the experience would be just as good. To my surprise I had an outstanding experience. I had the Sea Bass and my favorite Left Hand Milk Stout. The Sea Bass was fantastic.... More
