Description: Louisiana Lagniappe Restaurant opened in Destin, Florida in 1984. After 14 years the owners sold the restaurant and returned to their home in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. On January 1st 2003 Louisiana Lagniappe opened in its present location at 9990 Perkins Road in Baton Rouge. In addition to the old-time favorites Seafood Gumbo and Corn and Crab Bisque we serve many different all house made gumbos, soups and bisques including, Roasted Red Pepper and Jumbo Lump Crab, Duck and Andouille Gumbo, Shrimp and Artichoke, Crab and Brie, Southwestern Seafood Bisque, Roasted Cauliflower and Garlic with Jumbo Lump Crab and Lobster Bisque to name a few. The Eggplant and Jumbo Lump Crab, Barbeque Shrimp, Marinated Blue Crab Claws and Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes are a few of the original appetizers from our Destin days that are still favorites to this day.

We serve many of our longtime favorite entrées Fish en Papillote, Softshell Crab Pontchartrain, Fish Louisianne and Oysters Lagniappe as well as many new specials that are unique to the Baton Rouge location.

Def an more $$$ sort of place, but the food was tasty and unique to Louisiana. Wines were good and service was fine. I had redfish topped with crab. Get there earlier in the evening and you can usually breeze in.

My husband and I love Louisiana Lagniappe-this is a very busy restaurant, however, they are well staffed and the food is awesome. I ordered a soft shell crab dish and it was one, if not the best, softshell crab dishes I have had. We both enjoyed the entire meal and the staff was friendly. We made dinner reservations, which I recommend, because they are very busy. We will definitely return next time in the area. Delish!

Why four stars? Sometimes the portions are small but always pricey. The wait times can be so very long. But the food it simply the best. I love the layout and the wait staff is nice.

We love everything on the menu here. Our daughter loves the steak, my husband loves the oysters, and I love the fish baked in the parchment paper.
