Caesar not served as advertised, and not garnished as advertised in menu. Good dinner special's and nice interior. Ordered the "classic" (8oz steak w/ veggies & sweet potato fries). Super delicious veggies n the side of sautéed mushrooms were soooo good! Garlic mashed potatoes were excellent but the baked potato looked awesome! Excellent drinks menu n super friendly staff.

Thank you for your review. I am so pleased to read about your wonderful experience with us at Baton Rouge Halifax. The Caesar (I am assuming it is the drink you are speaking of) is served two different ways. One is a Classic Caesar which is garnished with a lime wedge and extreme bean and the other is our BR...

I never give reviews but this restaurant was not good. I ordered a sandwich prime steak and it was soggy and unetable. I didn't have the heart to complain and spoil the lunch experience of my date. The beans were extremely hot and not safe temperature for eating. The taste was ok, similar to canned food. I do not recommend.

The ribs were excellent. The fries and baked potato were okay but not outstanding. Our server was Mitch and he really helped make it a fun evening. Conveniently located close to the Marriott Hotel and waterfront.

Thank you for your review. I have to agree with you in regards to our ribs. They are so delicious. I am sorry to read that you did not enjoy the fries or baked potato. On your next visit you should give the sweet potato fries or our garlic mashed a try. I am pleased Mitch was a big hit.... More

Located in a historic building close to major hotels this restaurant is large but one is made to feel at home. The service was prompt and friendly. We each had prime steak cooked to perfection-succulent and flavourful. The mixed vegetables were crisp and the fries light and tasty Arguably the best Canadian beers are served here - Granville Island and... More

It doesn't matter how many restaurants we dine at, the prime rib at Baton Rouge is the best. My husband and I live an hour away and still frequent this restaurant for that reason. Wait staff is always prompt and friendly, and the meal is always delicious.

Booked an on line reservation so we could have dinner before going to a play. Chose 6:45 which was available as was 7:30--7pm was all booked. When we arrived we were told they would not honour the reservation as several people without reservations had shown up. We'd have to wait until those without reservations were seated/--this would cause us to... More

Me and my mom came here the other night and had a wonderful dinner. We got spinach dip for a starter (HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!) and then we both had a burger and fries, and enjoyed every bite. The dinner was worth every penny. The service was also wonderful.

We came here a few times and always like it . Last month we were here with friends and we all had steaks . Really nice. My husband and I shared the calamari as we often do and they were also good. I like the old atmosphere of this place . Its great fro a steakhouse.

Had been meaning to try this restaurant ever since it opened in Halifax and finally made it there on Saturday night. Very busy when we arrived without a reservation but offered a table within ten minutes. Great atmosphere, staff and food. The wine was very expensive but good. Would eat here again .
