We were only in Baton Rouge for a night and decided to try Parrain's out. We got there around 6:30 and were told we had a 40 minute wait. Place was overflowing with people but we were called to be seated after 25 minutes. Service and food were excellent considering how crazy the place was. I had the shrimp, crawfish... More

Saying farewell to a coworker, their choice. Had a hamburger as I thought prices were quite high. Burger was ok, but nothing special. Did share some appetizers, they were good but not out of this world. Remember th I s place years ago when Obriens Ice House, though food was not consistent but cheaper. Nice atmosphere.

We saw a sign advertising this restaurant on Perkins Road. We turned into the driveway and a parking lot. But then there were no signs to indicate where the entrance to the restaurant is located. We had to call them & ask!!! Hope they will improve their signage. Am uploading a picture of the front of the restaurant - it... More

A rustic decor and a busy lunch crowd even at 1:30pm on a Wednesday. We ordered the thin sliced fried catfish for one entree' and the 1/2 fried tails & 1/2 crawfish etoufee for the second one. Both dishes were excellent! The portions are large, so we had to pass on desert. Thinking about going back for dinner tomorrow night.

I had the stuffed shrimp platter, with coleslaw (or salad), hush puppies, dirty rice and fries. There's a good reason why Parrain's is busy.

I have been to Parrain's now twice and each time I have been very impressed with not just the food but with the staff as well. The food is awesome, and our waitress was excellent - she stayed on top of our table to ensure we didn't need anything but she was not intrusive. This is a place I will... More

I can't recommend the char-grilled oysters at Parrain's enough, you won't be disappointed. Always a favorite place for the family, we are never disappointed by the food, the great services or the local atmosphere.

We stopped here 7-7:30 pm on Fat Tuesday, so busy. We waited a few minutes for a table and then the nicest young woman was our waitress in the section to left of entry. She was terrific and very efficient and pleasant. The person you always want to be your waiter. She was waiting on several tables and yet noticed... More
