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. In addition, we offer many new appetizers including house made Boudin Balls, Chipotle Shrimp, Tuna Tataki, Crawfish Wontons, Jumbo Lump Crab and Shrimp Spring Rolls with Ponzu Dipping Sauce, Applewood Smoked Bacon Wrapped Shrimp with Habanero Pomegranate Dipping Sauce, Fried Green Tomatoes with Creole Shrimp Velouté and Coconut Shrimp with Spicy Caribbean Dipping Sauce. Louisiana Lagniappe specializes in Fresh seafood and steaks. We serve fresh Louisiana crawfish dishes only when in season, never frozen or imported. 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. Kurobuta Pork Chops with Chipotle Glaze, Seafood Lasagna, Joyce Farms Chicken Florentine, American Red Snapper Fish Tacos with chili lime slaw, roasted corn and cilantro pesto, Smoked Gouda Grits and Grillades of Beef Tenderloin.

I’ll start by saying Louisiana Lagniappe has phenomenal food. There’s no doubt on that. If you’ve tried the Destin location, you’d know that as well. And while the food was great on our first trip to the BR location, the service unfortunately left us with a 2-3 star experience. When the customer has to get up from the table to try and flag down the waitress just to get a refill that was already promised and way overdue, that’s not good. When the waitress doesn’t even check to see how we liked the food until we had finished it, that’s also not good. When the waitress took 10-15 minutes between even checking on the table, that’s just not good. Now, in fairness, I got another employee to refill my drink to which he apologized. That made me wonder if it was indeed partially his responsibility to look after the tables in that room so it may not all be the waitress’ fault. The bottom line is the service wasn’t good and I can’t help but wonder if it was due to us being seated in a back corner cutout of a room. My advice and the advice I’ll be using if we ever give the BR location another chance, be careful where they seat you and REFUSE a table that is not very easily visible to waitstaff.

Loved this place. Service top notch. Atmosphere - great. Food - exquisite. We tried the fried eggplant appetizer, the spring rolls, the Brie soup, the crab cakes, baked oysters, everything was delicious. Then we got the duck and the lobsters which were really good too. The only thing I didn’t like was the bread pudding. Too sweet and dense for me but maybe that’s just me. I loved everything else.

Based on internet recommendations that this was the best seafood restaurant in Baton Rouge, we went there for dinner with high hopes. Skip to the appetizers. I ordered the fried alligator bites. My wife ordered the crab stuffed mushrooms. The mushrooms were okay, I make better, and the alligator bites were so salty I couldn't eat. When the server returned, I sent them back and got a cup of Gumbo instead. The gumbo was pretty good, but again I can make better. After our experience with the appetizers we decided to pass on dinner. There is much better food in Baton Rouge.

Albasha Greek & Lebanese Restaurant in Baton Rouge is one of the best places to eat especially if you like Greek and Lebanese food. Service is excellent and food is not that expensive. We have eaten here several times and have never been disappointed.

We made reservations to come here based on the recommendation of some friends.
The front hostesses were very friendly, one of whom led us to our table right away.
Francesca was our server... she was very nice and attentive.
We started out with the crab cakes that didn't disappoint as they were succulent and flavorful.
Our entrees consisted of the Red Snapper topped with crab meat and Hallelujah Crab... OMG! This is the best soft shell crab I've ever had.
For dessert we had the white raspberry cake which was very fluffy and the right amount of sweetness.
All in all, this visit to Juban's was a memorable one and one we hope to repeat as our travel bring us back to Baton Rouge.
A special thanks to Frasncesca for a job well done.
Kudos to the owners for an outstanding foodservice operation.
