If you are looking for ribs in Halifax, this is the place. I ordered the 10 oz. serving which was plenty big enough. (They do have a 16 oz. serving if you are really hungry.) I started using a knife but it soon became apparent that I didn't need it. I added a side of garlic mashed potatoes. The serving... More

In spite of somewhat slow service, the food was why we came and did not disappoint. You cannot go wrong if you like a leisurely meal with great surroundings.

This review is based on the two times we dined at baton rouge. The first night four of us dined (November 19). Our food took forever to come, they apologized and gave each couple a $10.00 coupon for our next visit. We went back the next week (November 24) to try again and it was worse. Food was very very...

We had eaten at this chain in Toronto..... it was good.... however I have to say that our most recent experience here in Halifax shines in comparison. The Staff were very attentive.

We enjoyed our time at Baton Rouge. The waiter was excellent - friendly, helpful and great sense of humour. The meal was delicious. I was pleasantly surprised given this is a "chain" restaurant. We were a half hour early for our reservation but staff seated us right away, no problem. Good time and good meal. Recommend this restaurant for a... More

We ate here for our anniversary. Were not disappointed. The steak was amazing. Staff were very friendly. I have eaten here before with work and have always enjoyed it. It was my husbands first time and he was very impressed. A little pricy though. Our bill was over $100 and we didn't have appetizers or desert.

I have been to other locations and loved this restaurant. The Halifax location has a great location, but the service and food were average. With so many great restaurants, I'll look a little harder, before I pick this one again.
