Great Last Minute Find!

My husband and I shared the big seafood platter called the Whole Shebang and it was more than enough for two people. We just added an extra salad. My husband liked the gumbo and the hush puppies and stuffed shrimp were fabulous. Nice last minute find on the way home :-)

So, it's a bit of an exaggeration to say you mush come to this place regardless of where you are in Louisiana, but it's a valid sentiment. I was in the area on business and this is one of the places my co-worker said is a "must see". I am from the south and love Cajun food, so I didn't... More

The wait for a table was only 20 minutes on a Friday evening. Friendly waitress. Pleasantly surprised by the cole slaw (with nuts). My husband wasn't thrilled with his meal but mine was great and he helped me with mine. Andouille crusted fish was so right. I tried the dirty rice and it was good also, spicy. Would return to...

We stopped here on our way to Florida. Not too out of the way from i10 and decent parking.The food was great, especially the hush puppies. I had some crawfish étouffée that was delicious and a fresh salad to start. I would definitely recommend. The wait staff and hostess were both very friendly too!

I have eaten here several times over the years although I was never really impressed. Last night we were looking for seafood in a casual atmosphere, Sammy's had a 45-minute wait, and Parrain's had a very high rating on Trip Advisor, so we tried Parrain's. The nice thing was no wait in a cajun atmosphere, but that was it. The... More

A long trip from Daytona Beach, Fl. Excellent food, excellent service served at the heighth of the dinner hour without a flaw. We cannot believe the speed with which the servers work. My Catfish with étouffée was so good I ate everything except the wiggle in the tail. The fried shrimp was excellent. Who knew how good Boudin Balls were.... More

Travelling back from Las Vegas in was late in the day and we were getting hungry. My mind started thinking "gumbo" so we put restaurants into the GPS and out comes Parrain's Seafood Restaurant. It is located just off of the interstate so we just drove right up and parked in their lot. After being seated I noticed the staff... More
