Top 10 restaurants in Baton Rouge, United States

April 14, 2018 Deane Carmody

Settled by Europeans on Native American hunting grounds, the city of Baton Rouge has grown up under the influence of English, French, Spanish, and native cultures. The city is proud of its Cajun and Creole heritage, with clubs famous for playing the blues, and streets full of restaurants serving up everything from spicy Bayou foods to Caribbean home cooking. Located on a bluff overlooking the Mississippi delta, visitors can watch the sun set over the levees or ride on a riverboat casino.

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.

MANSURS On The BOULEVARD

Reviewed By foodie1440 - Boca Raton, Florida

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.

Parrain's Seafood Restaurant

Reviewed By fishinfool56 - Holden Beach, North Carolina

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.

Juban's Restaurant & Catering

Reviewed By Omar R

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.
