I've been to free-standing Pappadeaux restaurants and LOVED their food, so I was excited to see one in the airport. However, the waiter told me almost nothing on the menu was gluten free, including soups, salads, and the dishes I normally get at this chain. I commented the regular restaurants must adjust their cooking methods to make the dishes gluten free, and the waiter said no, the issue must be that I'm not really sensetive to gluten. As I have Celiac disease and am VERY sensetive to gluten, that was insulting. I ended up leaving without getting anything.

Limited gf menu, but they seem to get how to keep things separate. It’s an airport, so expect high prices, but the SALAD was not worthy. They did give me more olives, capers, pepperoncini when asked.

Awesome atmosphere, fabulous good, wonderful (and knowledgeable!) waiter! As a celiac, I know my options are limited and safety is sometimes a risky bet but between the Find Me gluten free app, the info and reviews I found there, and the great restaurant staff; I had an enjoyable layover and a marvelous meal ☺

Gluten free menu. Mostly seafood. I ordered a hand tossed cocktail with shrimp and crab. It was delicious. I'm very sensitive and did not get sick. Will definitely be visiting on my future flights to Dallas.

When I asked detailed questions before getting seated, the hostess brought a manager out who was awesome. She went through all the details about the precautions they take and made me feel very secure that I would be safe there. Sure enough, I had no reactions after I ate there. They do have a limited GF menu (with a lot of salads), But our server said that they could modify some stuff outside of that menu, too. I stuck to a shrimp salad, though, and it was delicious.

This restaurant is mostly seafood, so the menu looks small and limited. It does have 5 to 6 options for salads, salmon, steak, lobster, and crab. I personally would not eat the crab meat due to imitation crab meat containing gluten.

Food is tasty, service is great. Having an option to eat at an airport is great.

Being a patron prior to my gluten allergy this restaurant was a favorite. However this visit I was very nervous about ordering even though I called ahead and spoke to management upon arriving. The GF menu was extremely limited, the taste of the naked Atlantic Salmon (cooked perfectly though!!) was beyond bland, disappointing and my meal was missing an item. Most importantly service was poor and lacking in ever area from arriving to departing, however I didn’t get sick! Covid-19 has had a negative effect on this chain, hopefully they can improve. My husband’s non GF food was a 10 for him!

They have a GF menu with many options. I let the hostess and server know about my celiac, and the manager approached to our table after we had ordered our mains. She asked whether my food could have contact with same surface where other stuff is cooked or not, etc. (I found it really considerate). Although the GF menu has a little disclaimer about cross contamination, I ordered a shrimp salad and didn't feel sick afterwards. My order took a hit longer than the rest, they apologized for it so OK.

They have a gluten free menu and prepare the food in a dedicated space. The manager took time to come over to review the order and ask if I would like my steak baked, since it would be grilled on the same surface as gluten-containing items. I really appreciated them taking the steps to confirm that everything was prepared safely.

Located in the southwest terminal, it has a nice atmosphere and specific gluten free menu, which unfortunately is so rare in airports. The manager came out after I had put my order in and just wanted to let me know that they were going to double check that all surfaces would be cleaned and that no cross contamination would happen. Such a good feeling, that management and the wait staff really cared and made it their priority!

I eat here several times a month. The shrimp cocktail, also crab and avocado cocktail and cobb salad are really good. I get the ribeye with baked potato and broccolini. If really sensitive they will do ribeye in a pan. It tastes better off the grill which they clean for me. Ask to speak to manager to be sure order is made gf.

Ate at Pappadeauxs and was so pleased. They have a separate gluten free menu and I told the waiter it was due to celiac. He acted like it was not a big deal, which initially surprised me. I ordered the half chicken breast with broccolini and mashed potatoes. It came with a wooden food tag that said 'prepared gluten free'. It was absolutely delicious. There was something one the menu for everyone: chicken, steak, fish, oysters, sides. They do not have a fryer. I will be back when I visit Dallas again!

Very limited selection from dedicated menu. Food was expensive but very good. I expected much more from a seafood place! Need to rethink some of their menu to make GF...just some easy changes, nothing complicated and they could easily add another half dozen or more items.

Fantastic! They have a very nice GF menu with a disclaimer about cross contamination, but many of the GF menu options are logically created to avoid it. I enjoyed the the Jumbo Shrimp and Lump Crab appetizer wirh my niece, then had the Caribbean Lobster Tail, that came with mashed potatoes and broccoli that had red pepper flakes. Excellent meal, and experienced no issues, and I'm a Celiac. The restaurant is quite large, there may be some wait, but it will be worth it.

While the food was okay I wouldn't return for several reasons. The service was horrible, the offerings of gluten free options were extremely limited, the cleanliness was questionable, and the ambiance and environment left a lot to be desired. It was so loud we had to shout to hear each other and the tables were so small we could barely fit our food and drinks. I would not recommend for a celiac due to the tight quarters of everything and lack of proper cleaning. My glass of wine was so filthy that I sent it back without touching it.

I had the redfish with shrimp and crab in a Leon butter sauce, sub the risotto for white rice. Staff was knowledgeable and happy to ask the kitchen for more info about modifying regular menu items, management makes it a point to come ask you whether or not your reaction is from ingestion only or cross contamination as well. Their gluten free menu actually also has quite a few options, not a skimpy few items.

Do yourself a favor and don't go here. First, their GF selection really isn't that great. Second, it's clear that the servers aren't well trained on the GF options. When I pointed out that my dish was wrong, our server insisted that a manager would come speak to me, which never happened. I was also told my dish would be re made but I was brought the same steak with different sides. Very disappointed.

Pappadeaux gets five stars just for the effort of the manager to start. We came to celebrate a birthday and they went the extra mile. The manager offered to make my catfish with cornmeal instead of flour. They even started a different work station and fryer for my gluten free needs. The management even allowed me to bring in my own gluten free bread to enjoy with my fondeaux!

Ordered seared tilapia off of the gluten free menu. Spoke with a manager, and everyone was well aware that I have Celiac Disease. The fish was delicious, until I realized it had a light breading. Yep, the gluten free seared fish is finished with a light coating of flour...wheat flour.

Best seafood ever! A bit pricey, but the food is worth the price. I got the Costa Rican Tilapia, and it was amazing. This is one of the best places for seafood ever. The only gluten free desert here is the Crème Brûlée, but it is delicious. Just don't forget to say that it you need it gluten free.

I would have to disagree with a few of the reviews here. I had a very pleasant experience at this restaurant. I also have a dairy allergy as well as gluten and the manager came out and talked with me several times to make sure they were doing everything they could to accommodate. They prepared what I ordered differently than on menu to ensure as little cross contamination as possible. My meal was fantastic. (Chicken) I was impressed with they way they took care of me. Have not had that happen before. Personally, I would recommend this place. It is expensive but if you let them know that you have an allergy, they will take it seriously, which is what I look for in restaurants. Yes, they do not have GF bread. But their menu has a pretty nice selection (for a GF menu).

They do have a gluten free menu and offer to alter any meal they can. I wish I had ordered of the menu. I had blackened Costa Rica mahi off the lunch menu. I had to sub white rice instead of grits. Fine. No lump crab with lemon butter sauce. I had less than half the food for $22. Very disappointing. The fish itself was wonderful. Staff tried hard but still a disappointing, very expensive lunch.
