My wife and I went there just before the Black Sabbath concert. Wife had a pasta dish (I know, weird for a steakhouse), and I had the tenderloin with blue cheese. We both enjoyed our meal, wine, service and atmosphere. Highly recommended.

Seven of us went on Monday, August 18 and it was a wonderful experience. The two servers we had, I believe they were Steve and Andrew, we attentive to our needs. There were two children with us and they were exceptionally attentive to them. I ordered crab cakes and Caesar salad, they were so good. Steve informed me that the... More

This was probably the worst service I've ever had. I was a little nervous ordering my steak medium rare (since this varies from place to place) but our waiter assured me that if it was too rare they could fix that. Our meals were delivered; and we were basically ignored from that point on. My filet was so tough that... More

I had dinner at this restaurant during my recent trip to Halifax. I sat outside on a nice evening and enjoyed watching the people and nice breeze from the harbor. I had the lobster poutine with a lobster tail on the side. Both were cooked properly and very tasty. I was happy with the food. My service was slow but... More

Four of us with a five year old which changes the dynamic somewhat. Kids menu was good. Two had PRIME RIB, one had SURF & TURF, and one had FILET: all were good without being over-filling. Service was good (with a five yr old you don't/can't wait too long) and drinks were good. Nice atmosphere, not loud, not cramped, comfortable... More

Noticed this restaurant as we were walking around Halifax and thought we would give it a try. Liked the look of the outdoor patio but soon realized it was quite loud when Harley's and Tuner cars were accelerating past the patio. After a drink we asked to move inside and were quickly accommodated. The steak and lobster were great. Service... More

Had the twin lobster tails. After eating whole lobster all over the Maritimes and working hard to get at the meat it was nice to have to do little to enjoy this meal...The tails were very large and well worth the price, which was very reasonable. The service was excellent also

We had just arrived in Halifax and were looking for something near where we were staying so the hotel staff recommended Baton Rouge. I had the prime rib sandwich and my Mum had the Baton Rouge burger both great. They also serve a lovely Malbec if you like a nice red with your dinner. The service was excellent and staff... More
