Good Service, nice atmosphere and great taste

The place has a small parking lot in front of it, could be a problem if it place is crowded. Girls at the reception quickly seat you. The menu contains a reasonable variety but not so many items are there. The taste and cleanliness of the dishes are excellent. I tried the Vermilion and enjoyed it... read more

This was actually my 2nd time going here. The food is Yum! The only issue I would say is the parking availability and stretched wait staff. Our poor waitress was all over the place. Weekends should have more staff on hand. Oh yeah you must try the bacon wrapped shrimp.

Visited here with the family. They had something for everyone. We enjoyed the Cajun dishes & my son had the craw dads. The crime brûlée was out of this world. Make this place your first stop in Baton Rouge.

Second time here with the fam! If you come on a popular eat out night be prepared to wait- im not sure if they take reservations. Got the black and bleu tuna and it was delicious! Servers are a little slow, but youre eating out so you might as well chill and enjoy it. They have a oyster special on... More

This was my 2nd visit to Parrain's each time I have been completely impressed and blown away by the service and the quality of the food. The staff here is very welcoming and make you feel right at home. I have had a cup of the seafood Gumbo for an appetizer during my first visit and it was out of... More

At our table we had an oyster PO-boy (best I've ever had and I've had a lot), Boudain balls and a burger. Also Calamari for an appetizer. Very good food and lived up to its TripAdvisor recommendations.

I live in Tennessee but visit Baton Rouge on business a couple of times each year, and when in Baron Rouge, I never miss the opportunity to have dinner at Parrain's. Over the years, I have had a variety of terrific meals in this very popular source of local pride, but I have to say, Parrain's Andouille Encrusted Fresh Fish... More

This is the second time I order the charbroiled oysters at Parrain's and am disappointed. The first time around, both my boyfriend and I got sick after eating the oysters. I went back to Parrain's a week ago with relatives visiting from overseas. I made the mistake to order the charbroiled oysters. They were milky and unedible. The manager argued... More

Being from the Houston area and being nearly full time travelers since retiring 5 years ago, we dine at a lot of seafood establishments around the world. I guess eating out nearly all the time is the limit of our "credentials" as seafood connoisseurs. For us, last evenings experience at Parrain's was as good as it gets. Sure we have... More
