Everything was good! The catfish platter was the best deal in the house. It was a good price and a nice portion of food. Everyone in my family tried something different, and everyone was completely satisfied. It's quite busy, so be prepared to wait. It could have been because we were there on a Friday evening. Good choice for sure!

Parrain's is perhaps the best seafood restaurant in Baton Rouge. I have been numerous times over the last several years and it is always really good. Service is also very good. The wait staff does not hover, but always shows up when you need them. I only rated the food 4/5 because the side salad that comes with the entres... More

Love it. Have been numerous times, and never disappointed. Wait time on weekends can be long, but worth it. Sit on large porch with a drink and enjoy till your table is ready.

Love this place! They have great food, staff and atmosphere. Service is fast and they will let you do substitutions, which I love. Great location although rush hour can be a very rough time to try to get to it unless you are already nearby.

Excellent shrimp and very generous portions. A little noisy, but to be expected with the crowd. Did not have to wait very long for a table. Waitress, although very busy was attentive. Would definitely re-visit when in the area again.

Stopped here for lunch with the family on a road trip. It's convenient to get too off the interstate. Parking can be a bit of a challenge, but worth it. The seafood was fresh and well prepared. The staff was great, service was above par, and the atmosphere is unique. We would definitely return.

I love dining at Parrain's, it is also a favorite among my other family members as well. The service is great and the seafood is "awesome" I have never had a bad meal at this restaurant.

While the service was a little slow (we asked for an extra minute and waited another 20 minutes to submit our order), the food was very good. I met some friends of mine I hadn't seen in a while here and the restaurant has a very busy family style atmosphere. The staff is fairly friendly, the service so-so, but the... More

I can't tell y'all how bad wanted to like this restaurant! I love the way it looked. It was crowded...I was just expecting GREAT food! My husband got a combo of fried crawfish tails - now these were good!! - and crawfish etouffee. The etouffee wasn't good. I ordered the Pontchartrain. The fish had no flavor, aside from the small...
