Long standing reputation for great seafood. The building, inside and out, is fitting to the theme of Louisiana. Drawbacks? Parking, wait for a table, and lack of acoustics.

This place has so much good food to choose from, and the atmosphere is perfect for a Cajun seafood restaurant. There is always a wait on the weekends, so the earlier you go, the better!

We love Parrain's and eat there frequently. Great seafood. My favorite dish is their chargrilled fish where they leave the skin and scales on one side and cook it on an open fire!

Traveled in on business looking for local flavor and found it at its finest. Had several appetizers, The Whole Shebang, and a couple of Hurricanes pictured here. Amazing flavors and some of the best Cajun cuisine I've ever eaten. Yum!

This is the authentic Cajun/Creole style fixings... oysters bienville, boudin, fried alligator, boiled shrimp and crawfish... and those are just the appetizers. Add soups like seafood gumbo, crab and corn bisque, turtle soup and you are in Louisiana bayou country. Entrées read like... Andouille Encrusted Fresh Fish, Crawfish Etouffe, Catfish Perdou, BBQ Drum Fish, New Orleans BBQ Shrimp, and these,... More

Nice place with a home feel. Prices are pretty high though but the food is good. Service is very friendly but the place stays crowded.

Dropped in based on a recommendation from a friend and he was 100% on the mark. A very busy restaurant which is a good sign, seems I was the last to find this place. I grabbed a table in the bar area and the waitress was friendly and attentive. The menu had such great selections that I tried "The Whole... More
