Amazing food and wonderful, efficient service! We ate there in a large group and every person agreed that it was one of the best meals we've ever had.

This is the second time I have eaten at Baton Rouge and was disappointed both times. The menu is very limited and the portions are huge! I can never finish my meals there and do not like it well enough to take it to go. I find this chain to be overrated and will not go there again. On a... More

Although Baton Rouge is a chain restaurant, ours in Halifax feels particularly special perhaps because of its location in the historic Morse's Tea building. Our Server was excellent and managed to keep our wine glasses filled and our food coming at well-timed intervals, even though there were 5 of us and it was a bit of a boisterous reunion of... More

Went here for our anniversary. I never expected I'd leave saying I just had the best steak ever! But that's what happened! They had a 10oz Prime Rib special, with salad and desert for only $25 - how can you beat that price? So we both decided to go with the special. The salad was amazing - loved it. The... More

My husband and I had supper at the Halifax Baton Rouge. He ordered the prime rib and I ordered seafood linguine. My dinner was tasty but my husbands prime rib was tough and dry.

In Halifax for a conference and we went here with a group of 10. The atmosphere was nice and we were seated upstairs which allowed us a little privacy. The appetizers were excellent - these were the largest stuffed mushrooms I ever had and in order to still be able to eat my entree, I easily shared them with 2... More

Came here to celebrate our daughter's grad. The drinks were great as was the food. I had the steak and crab cakes and loved it. My wife had the ribs and shrimp which was also excellent. Service was courteous and fast.
