We dined here as a party of six. We were greeted nicely and promptly seated. First up, we ordered drinks. They were all fantastic and it was nice to see a true bartender mixing drinks the way it's supposed to be done! For apps, we all shared calamari, spinach dip, and sweet potato fries. We highly recommend them all. Our... More

We were a group of eleven and had made a reservation. Ten minutes after we arrived the waiter told us we only had an hour because the table was booked at 7:00 pm. Never have I ever been told that I had to rush through a meal at a restaurant. Staff spent more time watching us to finish than giving... More

This was our first trip to this restaurant after being recommended to us by my boss. We were not disappointed. We made a reservation, but when we showed up, it appeared that a reservation would not have been necessary. This was at 5pm on a Saturday, so I can't speak to how busy it might be on a weeknight, or... More

I am a fan of Bâton Rouge! So many great locations! This was my second visit at the Halifax location. What a great experience. I ordered the Oscar Sirloin. The lobster tail was cooked to perfection as well as the steack. Even the grilled veggies were delicious, so tasty. My hubby ordered the ribs...and as in any Bâton Rouge they... More

We went here for supper on business and absolutely loved it. The atmosphere was great, the service was great, the food was awesome and I even loved the dishes that everything was served on. I ate Lobster Risotto and it may have been the best thing I ever tasted! I want to go back just to try something else!

Dinner at Baton Rogue was amazing the other night. The Filet was cooked perfectly, ribs were had by all. From start to finish, everything was perfect. The service was impeccable and Chad and the staff tended to all our needs throughout the evening. It was a perfect birthday dinner. We've been there numerous times, and have never had a service...

Thank you for your review. I am so pleased to read about your wonderful experience with us at Baton Rouge Halifax.

I never give reviews but this restaurant was not good. I ordered a sandwich prime steak and it was soggy and unetable. I didn't have the heart to complain and spoil the lunch experience of my date. The beans were extremely hot and not safe temperature for eating. The taste was ok, similar to canned food. I do not recommend.

The ribs were excellent. The fries and baked potato were okay but not outstanding. Our server was Mitch and he really helped make it a fun evening. Conveniently located close to the Marriott Hotel and waterfront.
