“Entrees are consistently very good.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013 via mobile

Had six different adult entrees tonight. All were very good. Sides ranged from very good to unacceptable (cold French fries). Service was only acceptable--not outstanding. For the price, the experience should have been better.

“a family tradition”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

Parrain's is literally in my old neighborhood where I grew up. So I always feel comfortable coming here to meet up with our in-town family members when we come in for the Christmas holidays! I've never had a bad dish from here and it's a congenial atmosphere. Depending on where you park, you can go to Zippy's next door (a formerly Meriwether's Exxon station) and get a gallon of Eggnog Daiquiris to take home, Yum! Most of the family gets together and eats there at least once during our visits. (But we have eaten there 3-5 times during visits!)

“All I can say is "Wow", Cajun at its best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2013

Found out about this place from hotel staff. I am so glad I listened. Sat at the bar, right in front of where they shuck and grill the oysters. Had chargrilled oysters as app that have a secret sauce on them, Incredible !!!!!! then the 1/2 crawfish etoufee 1/2 tails meal. Again, Incredible! Service friendly and quick. Not much more to say...One of the best meals I have had in ages. Go hungry, portions are plentiful.

The food is really good. The onion rings are ok. If you do not mind waiting....this is a good place to dine.

“Very good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

Had a shrimp po'boy. It was good. Maybe even great. I did not have anything to compare it to.

Service was fantastic.

Hope one day to be back in town to try one of the specialties.
