I ordered the piggy platter for myself (I believe the official menu item is called The Shebang). The meal started with a choice of salad or coleslaw. Given that I'd ordered a fried seafood platter, I went with the coleslaw. I assumed it would come with the meal, but it came first like a salad would. Cole slaw is not... More

Really cool atmosphere. The place looks like it should be in Acadiana area more then Baton Rouge. We ate outside on the patio because weather was nice. A little noisy due to interstate basically on top of you, but I still enjoyed it. Parrains menu offered many choices so I can only base this review on 3 items. In order... More

Must try the grilled oysters! When I get home will definitely try oysters this way. The food was outstanding! The food was prepared perfectly in our party of 6. Not one miss. There were mix-ups as to what went on the plates for customers who were around us. Many plates went back to the kitchen to get the right food.... More

I've been to Parrain's many times and will be back again. With that said, I just can't rate it as excellent. There are some great things about it, but some misses as well. The bar area is big and accommodates a lot of folks when there is a wait. I've had many a good dirty martini there. The prices are... More

Dined with co-workers and had a tremendous dining experience. Great food and strong adult cocktails were definitely on order. The grilled oysters were amazing! Service was on point! The only negative is the parking...my advise is to be patient and wait for a space to open up. There is plenty of seats in the restaurant.

My elderly parents have loved this restaurant since they moved here 6 years ago. They always like to sit in the bar, so this review is about the bar section. I've brought them here about a dozen times. Our most recent visit will be the last. Service was awful. Took server forever to take our drink order, much less the... More

As a chauffeur I am asked by out of towners to recommend restaurants specializing in Louisiana cooking. To be able to do this my wife & myself sample various restaurants. I never suggest a restaurant that I have not tried myself. Parrains more that fits the bill.

Great seafood. Amazing lunch specials. Try the alligator balls. You won't be disappointed. Grilled oysters in the bar are too good to pass up. Casual dress but fine dining

We've tried several dishes. We particularly enjoy the "Half & Half," half shrimp & half catfish. Also, the coleslaw is really tasty!

The food here is wonderful. I took some relatives from Oklahoma here and they were crazy about it. It's a great place for a casual night out.
