I had some business guests in town and took them to Parrains for dinner. The atmosphere and menu are perfect. The chargrilled oysters and grilled alligator a great appetizers, especially for out-of-towners. Food is heavy and rich, but hey, that's what Louisiana is about!

Stopped for a late lunch and was seated promptly. Service was fast and friendly. My wife and I both had the artichoke and mushroom soup, which was the special for that day. The soup was thick in a nice cream liquid. It was good but a little on the salty side. It was served with a small buttered hot bread... More

Celebrated a birthday dinner with my brother and selected Parrains in large part due to the other TA reviews and ratings. Our meals were fantastic and the service matched. We are planning another visit soon and hopefully will be able to have room for some dessert.

Visiting Baton Rouge for a wedding weekend, checked out for lunch. Charbroiled oysters were good & fresh. Gumbo was hearty and tasty. My favorite was the black drum Ponchartrain, fish was prepared well with plenty of crab. Also yummy white chocolate bread pudding!

I must preface the review by saying that I'm in the minority here. Most people I know like this place but it does seem to cater more to tourists. As stated here, the easy access on and off for I 10 makes it an easy stop for people driving through. And it definitely isn't fast food. Just too many fried... More

Everything we had here was absolutely delicious. We had the Eggplant Pontchartrain and charbroiled oysters as an appetizer and WOW!! All the entrees were just as wonderful, and the homemade vinaigrette was awesome. The atmosphere and staff were also top notch. We will definitely be back here in the future!

Like so many stories of going to Parrain's Seafood Restaurant in Baton Rouge we too were on a road trip from Houston. Since I abhor fast food I checked TripAdvisor to see if there were any restaurants near the interstate. Expecting to find the usual "four food groups" (BK, McD, KFC, TB) we were surprised to find the great reviews... More

Amazing food and beverage service is extremely important for that this is the place to be. I been here a few times and each time is the same. Great food and service and drinks from bar is a high five.

The place to be the night before an LSU home game. After a wait of about 45 minutes, we enjoyed Boudin Balls, crab stuffed mushrooms chargrilled oysters and much more. Everything was good. Service was a bit slow but they were very crowded. The seafood was very fresh and they even catered to our friend with a shell fish allergy.

Thank Toni H
