My first experience to Parrain's was in 2006 and I hadn't been back for dinner until January (had previously went there for Sunday brunch). The food was excellent as always. I had the andouille encrusted fish and also tasted the chargrilled oysters and stuffed mushrooms. Everything was great. Only complaint was we sat on the bar side of the restaurant... More

This was a wonderful place to eat. We liked it so much we ate here twice!! Everyone was very friendly and the food was great. My husband loved the crawfish and étouffée and I loved the coleslaw and hushpuppies! You definitely need to try Parrains if you are in Baton Rouge! Thanks AJ for suggesting it!

The Crawfish Pasta was excellent and tried the Tobasco pepper jelly vinagarette on salad for a slightly spicy & sweet taste adventure. Recommend it highly!

Parrain's was really busy when we arrived so were very happy to be seated immediately. Despite being busy, our waitress was incredibly friendly and took time to explain some of the dishes to us and make recommendations. There was a nice atmosphere and service was excellence. The food was a little salty for my taste but still nice.There is so... More

Went with a large group (40) pre-ordered and the service was excellent, even with a full restaurant on a Friday night. Three others at my table had fried seafood orders and all said they were good - I had the shrimp, crawfish and crab pasta which was also very good. Tried alligator for an appetizer which was surprisingly tasty. Very... More

I was in town with some coworkers for a class, and our hosts took a group of us here for dinner one night. I wasn't sure what to expect, but my fears were unfounded. The atmosphere here was great, and our server was very good. She was up to the task of a party of 10. The food was excellent.... More

1st time at Parrain's, and 3 of us ate like kings for a hundred bucks. Hands down, their fried platters are the best I've had in years.

Would highly recommend to others. Kind of pricey, but food was definitely worth it, especially for a special occasion. My husband and I split a sampler plate...don't remember what it was called unfortunately. blackened alligator app was fantastic!

This was my first visit to this restaurant and I enjoyed it. I ordered chargrilled oysters and the stuffed shrimp platter. I loved the oysters! But the dressing and stuffed shrimp could use some more seasoning. I will visit again to try something else! The waitress; Laura, was very nice and polite. Great job chick! Lol I enjoyed the environment... More

I do like the food here but it's often just too loud to relax. My main complaint is the awful parking situation here... Unless you drive a small vehicle, be prepared to take your life in your hands here!
