Possibly it was a bad night for the kitchen. If you pride yourself as being one of the best in Baton Rouge... you better check the food that is going out ! The crab and corn chowder was excellent. The charbroiled oysters were bad to the bone. Cole slaw had a new twist with peanuts in it. Loved it. Ceaser... More

Based on reviews, decided to give this place a try. Nice casual setting with friendly staff. I had the fish platter with dirty rice. The fish was fresh and delicious and I love their fries. The cole slaw was to die for. It was different and tasty. The portions are quite generous. If you leave still hungry, then you didn't... More

Do yourself a favor - make sure you go to Parrains if you are in Baton Rouge! We started with chargrilled oysters and they were to die for! The waiter recommended the BBQ drum - hands down, it was the best piece of fresh fish I have ever had!! It was cooked perfectly and was sooooo juicy! And make sure... More

First off I want reviewers to know that alcohol is served here and that if you are a beer lover there are plenty of draft, bottle, or can beers to choose from! Nothing better than some great Cajun seafood and a good cold beer to go with it! I had the 1/2 crawfish etoufee and 1/2 fried crawfish tails and... More

Never disappointed. A large amount of really good food for a reasonable price. I love their fried seafood selections, especially shrimp and catfish. Their coleslaw has peanuts in it, but if you don't like peanuts, their salad with house dressing is wonderful. You can split an entrée with salad and sides and maybe have room for a desert or cocktail.

I followed the waitress recommendation an ordered the char-grilled oysters - yeah!! They were cooked to perfection and went really well with the specialty LSU Sour drinks and hushpuppyies. I went in through the bar to the outside seating and had no trouble getting a table, but noticed when I left that the line was really long for the restaurant... More

This was the perfect restaurant to visit with family. My mom who was a recent heart surgery patient was able to eat and have her food grilled instead of fried. The waitress was great and she was so willing to work with my mom to make sure she was comfortable and her food was make proper with little to no... More

Wow. They have everything you'd want in a Louisiana seafood restaurant. Including big portions that I didn't even come close to finishing. The BBQ bacon wrapped shrimp were amazing. They have a lot of tables.

Stopped in for lunch on our way pack to Texas. Great service and exceptional food. You must try the coleslaw with peanuts along with the Crawfish Ettoufe...
