Friends recently took me to this restaurant to celebrate my birthday. It has been one of my favorite restaurants for many years. I had the Snapper Pontchartrain, which is a red snapper filet covered in an extremely rich sauce of crabmeat and shrimp in butter and brandy. It is so good it must be sinful, and so rich that you...

We decided to celebrate a birthday at Pappas, and we are so glad that we did! This was a dining experience... not just grab some food and head on! The atmosphere was great, the service was wonderful, and the food was delicious! We really enjoyed our meal, and will return soon!

You really have to wonder how a pretty well known place can get reviewed here and the name isn't even listed correctly! This place has been Little Pappas Seafood Kitchen since I first dined here in the 1990's! It's a smaller version of the usual Pappas Seafood Kitchen restaurants you see in other parts of Houston but just as good.... More

This was more than a 4.5 button rating on TA, but I was disappointed with the place in general. I felt like I was dining in a 60's tweener restaurant (between a diner and classier restaurant). The food was OK. My sea bass was undercooked a tad, but fair. There just wasn't a lot of extra flavors accompanying the dish,... More

I ordered a apple Martini it was almost all alcohol. I ask if I could get more apple added to even it out they wanted to charge me. I never had that happen befor. The bartender made it wrong and wanted to charge me to correct it. Don't know if that bothers you but it did me. You judge if... More

I would eat here every week if I lived in the area. Great service, nice wine list, superb food; everything from a beautiful and delicious lobster Cobb salad to red snapper. But-those oysters. We couldn't get enough of them. Lively place for a group.

If you like seafood, Papa Seafood house is one of the best place to go. I enjoyed their fresh seafood. Best quality, large portions. You cannot finish your plate. Love it. Thanks

Wasn't all that impressed for all the great reviews. I had the blackened catfish and it was on the rubbery side, had to cut it with a knife😕Hubby had the fried crawfish tails and they were just okay at best.

Been several years since we were in Houston and there are a few restaurants that absolutely are a must go, no q's. Papa's Seafood is one of those. We went on a Sunday night and the wait was minimal, 15 min. We were with our old neighbors and knew the portions were huge so we went the old route of... More

I frequent this restaurant often....especially for the raw oysters. They are always fresh, briny, and delicious! Service is always spot-on and very friendly! My other favorite dish is the seafood cocktail (shrimp & crab combo). I have eaten many of their fish dishes as well...all very tasty, but I love their raw oyster the most!
