Good service. Nice and quick for a business lunch. Refills of drinks kept coming! Huge meals and all good but could maybe be smaller for a lunch as no one finished!

We were in Halifax for one night and staying next door to this restaurant so thought we would give it a try. We didn't have a reservation but were given a booth within 5 mins. Staff really friendly. Unfortunately they sat us in an area that is near some type of vent and cold air comes in (it was -20C... More

Dined at Baton Rouge in Halifax on New Years Eve and the food was an absolute joke. The 16 ounce order of back ribs looked like it came off a pig dieing from starvation. The protein make up was 12 ounces bone and 4 ounces meat (maybe). Also the order of prime rib was nothing too rave over either, Ordered... More

Four of us went out for supper. We all ordered appetizers and Prime Rib. The service and food were excellent. We all agreed that this was the most delicious and flavorful beef we have ever had.

Our family wanted a meal downtown but not all wanted the usual pub fare. This restaurant fit the bill. The meals ranged from burgers to steak and of course BBQ ribs. I highly recommend the ribs. Fall off the bone tender. The steaks were viewed as "ok" by those that had them. There is a good selection of sides to... More

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
