Second visit here and am just as impressed as first visit. Love casual atmosphere and our waiter was excellent both times. Our meals were delicious. Plan on returning next time we are in Baton Rouge. Only downside is finding a place to park.

Stopped for lunch....the carpark isn't tiny but everyone was cruising for a space. Plenty of seats available inside though, no wait. The server said they were THE best seafood restaurant in Louisiana, he was not exaggerating. We had fried oysters, they were served in the shell with a beautiful sauce and sprinkle of cheese, bread served with it to not... More

Place was extremely busy when our party of 8 arrived without reservations. We did find a table in bar area and was served by David He did an excellent job and our wait time was minimal. Food was good but not as great as the price would indicate. I will probably not go back again

I go to Parrains whenever I'm in Baton Rouge. They have the best chargrilled oysters I have ever eaten! They are not over done and dry, but grilled perfectly and served in a delicious butter, garlic and Parmesan cheese broth. Their seafood is fresh and I've never been disappointed with anything I have ordered. Their parking is very limited and... More

Ate here on a business trip. I wanted some great Louisiana seafood. This place was recommended by a long time Barton Rouge resident. Excellent recommendation. First, you look at the parking lot to see if it full, this was FULL. The Restaurant was packed - You would think this is a bad thing but it's not. I was with two... More

This place is my favorite place in the county to go and eat. Since I travel by myself for work, the lively atmosphere in the bar area is perfect to end a day. The food is not only outstanding in flavor and quantity but the prices are in the teens to low $20's You won't be disappointed

Good service and good seafood. Good size serving. Not crazy over the peanuts in the coleslaw, though. Just my taste. Evidently, it must be a Baton Rouge thing as another restaurant served peanuts in their coleslaw.

Thank rebafan
