Great service, we were taken care of from the moment we entered. Food was good and came up quickly. No complaints!

I ordered the lamb shank. What a disappointment. All fat with an unpleasant tomato sauce. I also upgraded and added grilled shrimp. I was shocked to only receive 3 cold shrimp for $17. Poor value.

We enjoyed our visit to Baton Rouge, food was delicious but very expensive. It was New Years Eve so wanted a special night out but not somewhere we would frequent.

We waited over 30 minutes to even be greeted by a server and only because I asked a waitress for help. Every other table around us was served and checked on numerous times. We were completely ignored. The excuse of lack of staff is unacceptable as, like I said, ever other table was promptly helped. An hour in and we finally get our food. Not allowed to substitute soup for rice. Not offered an alternative. We were never checked on and our drinks were forgotten. We were starving by the time our food came. We were there for almost two hours as we had to keep trying to find someone to get our cheque etc. A wonderful evening out with my husband turned out to be disappointing. Unfortunately we will not be going back. This is unfortunate as we have been regular patrons in the past.

Over all the experience was amazing. Our server was very knowledgeable with the menu. The suggested cocktail was fabulous. Ginny Hendricks is now my favourite. My only complains was the steak. It was very gristly and chewy. Other than that, fantastic. Onsite parking was a hiccup as well however there is a big lot next door.

Service was great - but the owner is rude and arrogant. Food was bland and we tried a number of dishes. The bbq sauce on the ribs tasted flat like it just came out of a bottle and absolutely was not worth the $40+. I feel bad for the lovely people that have to put up with the owner.

Went with my girlfriend on a Saturday night. Food and drinks were all excellent and there was a lot on the menu I’d love to go back to try. While the staff were friendly, the service was very slow, unfortunately. We waited 10-15 minutes after ordering our drinks to arrive and encountered similar lengthy delays in clearing the table, asking for follow up drink orders, and the bill.

All-in-all, will absolutely go back again for the food. Hopefully the service slow downs can be attributed to getting back into the swing of things post-lockdown.

I was excited to enjoy a nice dinner but it definitely fell short of my expectations. I ordered a Caesar salad, and stuffed mushrooms. My boyfriend order the devil burger. My salad came out without dressing on it, and the lettuce looked old. The stuffed mushrooms also didn’t have a sauce on them which they were supposed to. When I got the opportunity I asked my server for the dressing for my salad and sauce for the mushrooms which was brought out by someone else. By the time our server brought the dressing out to me, for me to mix my own salad…my boyfriend had finished his meal and I had finished my wine. It was a disappointing experience all around. I don’t recommend that anyone go here, unless you want someone to get your order wrong or have to mix up your food yourself.

Not bad, but not worth the money for me. Spinach dip was amazing. Steak was ok, potatoes were super salty and there was no other option to sub out Brussel sprouts as that was the only vegetable besides carrots on your plate which may as well be have come from refrigerator to plate. We also waited an hour for our food while the people seated next to us got their meal and we ordered before they even showed up. Don’t think we will head back anytime soon.

Baton Rouge Steakhouse in Barrie is a great place to enjoy an excellent steak and rib dinner. The food was excellent. There was a retirement party happening that was, understandably, noisy; but the staff were very kind to move us away from it as much as they could. Our server was very friendly and looked after us well.

The timing for the dinner was off. WE were not served at the same time. I watched my wife eat her appetizer and then she watched me eat mine. We waited for awhile before getting our main course. The chef delivered our main course because our dinner was late and they had issues in the kitchen . The slice of prime beef was cut unevenly from 1/4 inch on one side to 3/4 on the other side. It doesn't a a genius to figure out it was cooked unevenly. You could tell the plate had sat on the counter for awhile. They did change the beef. The manager gave us a 25 dollar gift certificate . For a 200 dollar dinner for two there is no excuse for this to happen. It ruined our 47th anniversary dinner. It is unfortunate we like the restaurant and will probably try it once more but will not recommend it at this time to others.

It was the first time since Covid began that we chose to celebrate my wife’s birthday at our favourite steakhouse.
All Covid protocols were there to make us feel safe & able to enjoy our dinner.
Groups of people were well spaced & the restaurant was not packed with diners.
Our server was so friendly & the food was delicious. The complimentary dessert was appreciated.
I would definitely recommend you try the steakhouse

The owner served my wife dairy cake after knowing she had allergies. Than he claimed her allergies weren’t serious because she didn’t have an allergic reaction. He than offered to give her medicine.. very unprofessional. Never seen such careless service.

The menu online differed from what was offered at the location. Food was nothing special and prices reflected higher quality food.
