First time to eat here. Crab corn bisque was excellent, rich as it should be wonderful flavor. We shared the Delacriox, the mahi mahi fish was a little tough but the sauce had great favor, could have used a little more sauce. Cole slaw with peanuts, had a nice light dressing. Will definitely eat here again and try something else.

It starts with clever atmosphere and friendly, attentive servers. We are both light eaters, so we shared the Crab and Crawfish Au Gratin appetizer, moved on to Turtle Soup (like a spicy chili), then shared the Andouille Encrusted Fresh Fish. We are travelling across the USA, and this was truly one of the BEST eating experiences we will treasure. (We only wish we'd had room for dessert.)

Parrains has some of the best seafood gumbo you'll find in Baton Rouge. It's not fancy, but it is delicious. In fact, everything on the menu is most likely delicious. The atmosphere is relaxed and fun. A great place to meet friends for drinks and dinner.

Mike Anderson's is Boutin's is Parrain's--they all have the same selections of fried seafood and rich sauces and toppings. My mistake was to try to eat healthfully here--I ordered the "Grilled Fresh Fish" without the hollandaise sauce on the broccoli. Turns out the fish is not so much grilled, as pan-sauteed and covered in gobs of butter. The porch is a nice outdoor area, even with the proximity of the interstate offramp, but no patio will truly be nice until smoking is banned in outdoor dining areas. :)

I'm not an oyster fan but the grilled Oysters were great. We had a large party and we sat almost immediately. Great food, good selection of beers and wines. Great service.
