One of the worst dining experiences I’ve ever had! Upon arriving, I was excited that they had a gluten free menu -seemed promising. Although it was limited to mostly salads and steaks, which is fine. I told the waiter I had celiac and ordered the caesar salad with grilled chicken as an appetizer and a steak and baked potato for my entree. The manager came out shortly after to ask about my allergy which I appreciated. She informed me that their grill top is cross-contaminated with gluten and offered to bake my steak instead and give me the salad without chicken. Again, super appreciative of how knowledgeable she was. *This is when it got terrible* The waiter, knowing that I have celiac, put the giant loaf of bread in front of me when there were 6 other people at the table. Okay, not a big deal. Then the salad came out WITH the chicken I was just told I could not eat. The waiter goes back to get me a new salad. The second salad comes out with giant CROUTONS! I again, had to bring the waiter over and tell him. No apologies were given, just an eye roll and took it back. The manager brought out yet another salad and said “third times a charm” and laughed. I’m trying to be nice about it all but I get severely sick with any cross contamination and so it’s not really a joking matter to me.

The waiter was very rude, literally tossing things onto our table and did not seem to care about my allergy request at all. I did not feel comfortable eating here based on getting a SALAD wrong three times. This place was not worth it to me.

I’m in town for business and dead tired after a long day, so my coworker and I wanted to find somewhere close to eat. I figured worst case I could order a salad at Pappadeaux, but when I saw down the waiter asked if there were any allergies he should be aware of. He provided me with a pretty short list, but had a couple steaks, a few fish options, and salads. He also noted that because everything is scratch-made, there were a lot of substitutions possible, so the available GF options would be much more extensive. I ordered the naked trout blackened with brown butter. 1- it was huge! 2- it was delicious! To add to it, the place seems to run like a well-oiled machine, despite many large group tables (10+). They also gave us free dessert (crème brûlée) because we told them we had never been there before. 10/10 would recommend!

They have a separate GF menu, but it’s very limited. Salads, steaks, and three fish dishes without sauces. When I described my issue with gluten they had the manager talk to me to get a full understanding and how to accommodate. My steak was made in an oven dish rather than a shared grill to avoid cross contamination.

Steak and baked potato were both very good.

The waiter offered crème brûlée as a GF dessert but when it was delivered to the table, it had a wafer in the top as a garnish. When I asked about it the dessert was quickly whisked away and remade without the wafer.

They have a dedicated GF menu and ask for the allergy procedure. They will have the kitchen manager come out and explain how they will treat your order.: Felt very safe! I had the blackened red snapper with broccolinni and a side of Caesar salad.

We stopped in for dinner on Friday between flights. Our server was fairly knowledgeable about what was and wasn’t safe, but still sent over there for manager to chat with me. She checked with the kitchen manager that what I was thinking about ordering (shrimp cocktail, green beans, and white rice) would be safe, then returned with their suggestion of off-menu baked shrimp with the white rice and green beans instead. The food was fine, somewhat overcooked, but I didn’t have any reaction afterward and honestly was really grateful to get a solid meal instead of just snacks I’d packed, especially as our flight out of DFW was delayed by about 4 hours.

I don’t know what I got sick on but personally, I was very ill following the meal. It instantly hit me. The food was delicious- I highly recommend the salmon and potato but I would not go back again due to safety of food for those with celiac or the like.

Great experience. Probably one of the few places a celiac could eat in the airport. Even though I am not celiac, since I mentioned “no gluten” the manager came over and double-checked everything before the order went into the kitchen. Had a delicious chopped salad with salmon!

Restaurant has an immediate GF protocol once you ask for GF menu. Server stated manager would be right over and would follow order to completion to ensure remained safe, and did. Order the house salad with Greek vinaigrette, naked salmon with lemon butter sauce and broccolini. Would recommend to anyone even if not on GF diet. Daughter who is not on GF diet dined with me, server had no intention of bringing bread until we asked for it/gave the ok.

Limited choices, very expensive, but food is delicious! Definitely wave the gluten-free flag in the waitstaff’s face! I ordered my food off the gluten-free menu, but did not say “I am gluten-free”, so my salad came with croutons?! I figured the menu sitting in front of me would be clear enough, but apparently you have to be more specific.

I've dined here a few times and always had good experiences. The waiters have the manager go over your order to be sure everything ordered can be prepared gluten-free. Great, right? I think someone failed to go over the precautions with the people in the kitchen because half way through my salad I bit into a crouton! It seems as if someone in the kitchen said "Ooops - this isn't supposed to have wheat" and then picked the croutons off and missed one instead of just throwing it out and starting over. I was sick for a week and now I'm afraid to eat there again.

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!

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.

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.

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.
