Pappadeaux Seafood Kitchen Restaurant Review: Specializing in Cajun-accented seafood dishes, the menu re-creates some old standards---such as the po' boy sandwiches---while dishing up some of its own notions. The very rich oysters Pappadeaux, for instance, presents a half dozen lightly baked oysters with crab meat, spinach and hollandaise sauce---a take on Rockefeller style. Deep-fried crawfish tails with fries come in an appetizer size that’s plenty for a light-appetite dinner, or as a generous dinner portion. The real meal deal for two is the Pappadeaux Platter, a heaper of fried seafood with extra shrimp, catfish and crawfish. Cajun touches extend to boudin, crawfish bisque, frogs’ legs, fried 'gator tail, bread pudding and sweet potato-pecan pie, but you also can get a whole Maine lobster, grilled seafood, and soft-shell crabs. For calorie-watching, a charbroiled preparation is available for any of the fried dishes. This location also offers a seafood buffet every day at lunch, occasional all-you-can-eat live Maine lobster, and live piano music on Wed. at dinner and at brunch on Sun. Also located at 5635 Jimmy Carter Blvd., at I-85 (exit 99), Norcross, 770-849-0600; and 2830 Windy Hill Rd., at Powers Ferry Rd., Marietta, 770-984-8899.
