The food is great, the customer service is great, and the atmosphere caters to all ages. No one should feel out of their element.

Pappaduexs is my favorite chain seafood restaurant and this one is my favorite location. I have others close to me but the service and atmosphere are better here. Try the jumbo lump crab cakes with crawfish and champagne butter sauce! Fabulous!
