Asked around when we got into town where good places without for different types of food over and over this restaurant name came up so we went and tried it. The parking lot was packed so we figured the word had to be true. We ordered five different things and shared them all all of which were delicious large servings... More

I'm lucky to live in the neighborhood where Parrains is located. The food is always good. The bar is always comfortable. great outdoor area year around. My favorite is the grilled oysters with a cold vodka martini!

Tuesday night is 1/2 price Raw Oyster night. Settle in with a couple dozen of those babies and the Martini up, it was a good night. I'm pretty sure they served other seafood but I was pretty happy with what I had. Service was excellent both the bar and the table service. It does set back from the street so... More

Great creole food. Our waitress Kristen was very good with her explanations/description of the dishes. She didn't steer up wrong.

They will take large party reservations, but only 24hrs in advance. Though we did not know that, we found space in the bar for 12 diners. The hostesses and servers could not have been nicer! The food was excellent and the service spot-on. Parking is limited, but there is a nearby bank for evening parking. This really is a must-do!

When out of towners at LSU games ask for good seafood, I always send them to Parrain's. It is our "go to" seafood restaurant for special occasions. They offer the best quality and variety of seafood in BR -from charbroiled or raw oysters, to seafood plates, and great gumbos & soups. They also have great salads if you're looking for... More

Locals probably know of Parrain's ...nuf said. Atmosphere inside and out is typical old-time south Louisiana, as is the menu, not Cajun. We enjoy the bar area over the dining rooms. I am not an 'oyster eater' but their Grilled Oysters are the best I've tried anywhere. Easy access, right off I-10.
