I love Parrain's! It is the same owners as the Chimes who also have excellent fried shrimp. I like Parrain's because it is not quite as loud as the Chimes and the parking is easier. Both places have great food you can count on to be consistently good.

Parrain's is one of the best seafood restaurants in Baton Rouge. Nice variety of seafood with some nice specialty dishes. Surprisingly Parrain's has one of the best pork chops we have ever eaten. You can beat the crowds on the weekends by arriving early.

Being from Baton Rouge, we always bring out of town guests for the excellent appetizers. Our guests always rave about the chargrilled oysters. The thin fried catfish is always a hit.

The food is very good. Char-grilled oysters are the best. There is a large variety of dishes to choose from and to fit every taste. Food is good and so is the service.

I eat hear pretty regularly. The food is always excellent and fresh. Everything is good but they probably have the best fried shrimp in Baton Rouge. All of the fried food is excellent. If you have never had fried crab claws don't miss the chance. Daily lunch specials are always excellent and come with fresh bread and salad. The cole... More

I've never had a bad meal at Parrain's. The only reason I would not give them an Excellant rating is the acoustics are poor. Unless you eat very, very early in the evening, you are unable to converse with your dinner partners. It's a popular place, which is generally full of customers. It's worth a visit when you are in...

Passing through Baton Rouge we stopped at Parrain's for Happy Hour. The place filled up fast...very busy but good vibe. We sat at the bar and some wonderful raw and grilled oysters....very fresh. We later moved into the dining area for dinner. It has a casual feel..nothing fancy. It is very popular with the locals. I ordered a variety of... More

Parrain's is a large restaurant with the old building look. It is clean and the food is excellent but the service is laid back so do not be in a hurry. We were there after the lunch crowd and there were approx 20 cars in the parking lot. We were seated after the young girls had a discussion where to... More

The good food makes the wait worth going here. Chargrilled oysters are very good. The alligator is the best I have had, the fried shrimp and oysters are excellent, and the paneed and grilled fish dishes are very good. I have had most of the sides and have never been dissapointed.,
