Pappadeaux has been a usual dining arena for my family and I for years. However, upon stopping in yesterday I was totally put off. The waitress, Mudian (?), refused to serve my daughter an alcoholic beverage--and understanding the policy on underaged drinking--I ordered a drink myself and my daughter a water. Later in our dining experience, my daughter had a sip of my drink and the manager, a short blonde that looked about sixteen, immediately took the drink off the table in front of my guests and told me she would not serve the table any more drinks because she saw her take a sip of my beverage.
This was completely inhospitable and a big turn off. Upon then we paid our tab and left.
Aside from this incident, the waitress seemed to have no knowledge of the menu or the ability to take our order without interrupting her conversation to another one of the waitstaff members.
I hope this isn't going to be a trend for Pappadeaux, it used to be a great restaurant.
Pros: I've liked everything I've ever eaten here
Cons: unattentive waitstaff, rude manager
