Flavorful Fare!

This is a great, inexpensive restaurant with typical LA dishes with a lot of flavor. I would not hesitate to go back again! Everything we ordered was tasty- so much more that we would LIKE to taste! It's a little hidden in the back, so look for the sign and turn in.

Fabulous meal! The gumbo was full of everything gumbo should be and the bacon wrapped bar-b-q shrimp was great. They gave me one char-grilled oyster and it was awesome. We sat at the bar and the staff couldn't have been nicer.

Impressive Decoration; Customer Friendly Staff; Food is outstanding. A person can easily eat the "Seafood Gumbo" every time" they visit this great restaurant. The dress code is "casual" wear, the better to put your elbows on the table and really get down with the good eats. !!!LOL

Parrain's is an excellent place for seafood and the wonderful Louisiana experience with friendly services and a great meal. I enjoy the blacken shrimp over pasta....mouth watering and just wonderful. The servings are excellent portions and even enough to share with others. I love going to Parrian's Seafood and it rates in the top 10 of Seafood Restaurants in South... More

Great food! A true taste of South Louisiana! Try crawfish, dirty rice and the wonderful specials that are offered on a daily basis.

I love coming to south Louisana for business and pleasure. I've eaten at all the best seafood joints, but this was my first to Parrains. I had the andouille sausage grilled fish over crawfish with a cup of seafood gumbo. Great meal and service was excellent.

Parrain's is a local favorite. Which means there's usually a crowd. They come to eat the really good seafood. Baton Rouge folks are picky about their seafood and have a lot of choices. Parrain's is the favorite seafood restaurant for lots of locals.

This is where we bring our out of town guests. Delicious entrees, great shrimp and corn soup, good draft beer. Go early--it is always crowded.
