This was our first experience at this restaurant. We ate at Pappadeaux's for the Father's Day brunch. We had reservations (highly recommended) and only had to wait about 10 minutes for our table. The only negative was when the hostess attempted to give our table away to another couple while we were in the buffet line but that was quickly resolved by my daughter, who had been keeping a watchful eye, as well as our waiter who said he was ""looking out for us."" The buffet line passed rather quickly considering there were several inpatient people who felt they were an exception to having to wait in line and were breaking into the line at various spots, very annoying! One idiot woman was juggling three plates of food! The food was delicious, very flavorful. Granted, we have only had one other experience with Cajun Food, but the salmon, catfish and alligator (not part of the buffet), were especially tasty. The service from our waiter was outstanding. He did a magnificant job keeping our glasses full, considering how extremely packed with customers the restaurant was. He was most hospitable and gave us background information on the restaurant, the food and the chefs. All of his customers were very well tended to. He did suggest to us that we return for dinner when things were not so crazy because he felt we would truely enjoy the experience much more and he said the dinners are nothing shy of spectacular. Realizing some people are just never happy no matter what, I would hope the previous customers who have left negative feedback won't discourage others from eating at this restaurant, it is by far one of the better restaurants in the entire metro area for service and tasty food. The price for the buffet, $22.95 per person, was very reasonable when compared to other restaurants of the same calibur who charge upwards of $30 to $50 per person for their buffets. We were very pleased overall and will definitely return!
Pros: EXCELLENT service, very friendly staff, great parking, great ambience
Cons: hot food was served first, by the time you get through the buffet line the hot suff was no longer hot!
