“Shrimp and Catfish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We had shrimp and catfish cooked to perfection! I would advise that unless you have a great stomach the dirty rice may not be a good choice. It was really spicy and I enjoyed but I lived to regret it the next day! Service was very good. Parking may be a problem on busy nights but we managed.

“Best Oysters”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Fresh and salty. The artichoke soup is wonderful, the staff is friendly, the bloody marys are full of stuff. You may have to wait in line, thats because its that good. Louisianans are food snobs, and we critique everything we eat. We in Louisiana eat at Parrains.

“Reliable place for Louisiana seafood favorites”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

Love the fried seafood, service is good, comfortable ambiance, a great place especially for lunch. I ioften order the Caesar Salad with Fried Oysters, which I think is a perfect Louisiana version of the classic dish. The more complex dishes on the menu (beyond fried dishes) are fine but this place is really best for fried seafood.

“Hit me Black & Blue !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

The "Black & Bleu Tuna" is the BEST tuna dish EVER !! Blackened tuna, cooked to your liking (I like mine bruised on the grill), topped with big crumbles of Bleu Cheese and set on top of a mound of spaghetti bathed in a magnificent and RICH creamy Blue Cheese dressing. If you like tuna and if you like Blue Cheese, this is the dish for you ! It is to die for !
ALso, the appetizer, grilled Oysters Bienville is scrumptious !!!
I've dined there at least 20 times, and 20 times I've had the Tuna !!...and 20 times it was wonderful !!...and it's even better the next day (the portion is so big, I always have leftovers).
