Our visit was disappointing. We made reservations and were seated right away which was great because there was a 45 minute wait. We visited this restaurant before attending an event at the Roger's Centre. The staff seemed to be aware of the event however the restaurant was extremely understaffed (we had to go to the bar to pay because a waiter never returned to our table after dropping off the bill). The staff seemed frustrated, disorganized and not at all excited about their work.
We had the steak - the meat itself was ok (but certainly not what you would expect for the price) however the sides were what you would expect from an all-night buffet. The salad was dry (we had to wait for close to 10 minutes to get extra dressing) and had no flavour. The potatoes were almost inedible.
We have wanted to try Baton Rouge for a while but unfortunately will not be returning.

Not impressed. The restaurant looks old and tired. Service was fine but not exceptional. Ordered a main from the menu and was told 15 minutes later they had run out of the key ingredient for that main and had to order something else. Pretty boring menu with not much choice - example, you could get a 38 $ seafood main that included scallops, lobster etc but could not order a scallop main. I would not return and would not recommend.

We visited this Baton Rouge location on New Year's eve. Our table did not have cutlery or salt/pepper and we had to ask for these items. Our server was very nice; however, the service was very slow as he was 1 of 3 servers in our very busy area. The food also took a long time to arrive and was cold upon arrival. We will not be returning to Baton Rouge.

Service was lacking especially considering the place was 75% empty. Food was ok however my wife's steak was undercooked and had to be sent back to finish being cooked. Considering that I was done my meal when my wife finally got her cooked meal I think some goodwill gesture (free desert) should have been done like other decent restaurants of that price range do. I am in no hurry to go back.

My wife and I decided to enjoy our anniversary at Baton Rouge because of the food. We have eaten at various other locations and found them all to be a wonderful value. Staff is friendly and the back of the house expertly prepares each and every dish.

I have been to this location numerous times as a rendez-vous for business meals. Great food and great service. Always a pleasure to dine here.

Apart from them cancelling my booking and me arriving 4 mins after my reserved time, the service was good and food tasty as well. I think the size of the lunch steak is a little meager for $17 tho
