One of my favorites for Cajun food

Great variety of seafood. We went for Sunday brunch it was delicious. We have visited Parrains several times and have not been disappointed.

This was our first visit to here but definitely won't be our last. Everything was so good, great service, reasonable prices. We had half dozen raw oysters, half dozen chargrilled oysters, my husband had The Whole Shebang, I ordered the Eggplant Pontchartrain, it's an appetizer but I had it as my meal. Everything was delicious!

Omg! Yall this place is great! I recommend the fried gator and the strawberry margarita (with sugar in place of salt). The service is always great and so is the food!

Parrains remains one of my favorite spots in Baton Rouge. They have an excellent Sunday brunch. They also have a number really good regular menu items. When the weather is favorable I enjoy watching games on their patio, as well as their $1 rolling rock pints.

Although we had to line up to get into here on a busy Sunday night, it was well worth it. The blackened fish was nicely grilled, crisp and fresh. The service is also good. Would definitely go back.

If you're wanting the very best seafood dining experience in Baton Rouge, you either must go to Parrain's Seafood or Louisiana Lagniappe. At Parrian's, you cannot go wrong with one of their specialty items, but the very first one listed--Andouille Encrusted Fresh Fish--is wonderful. The portions are big enough to share or take some home for left overs.

Fabulous service, fun people. I went for the vermillion along with the house salad. The food was fresh and super tasty. We needed to wait over an hour for a table however the food was well worth the wait

In town on business and saw this place received great reviews and Tripadvisor didn't let me down. Went here with some business colleagues and all ordered something different and we're all extremely happy with the meals. Was crazy busy even on a Wednesday night so you may likely have a little bit of a wait. Very cool vibe here!
