Overall good experience. Server was good. Friendly and attentive but felt like a pub and less of a higher end restaurant service. Entrees arrived way to early. We had just received appetizers. Free desert for birthday person was appreciated. Food tasting was dry good and temperature was okay due to early delivery of entrees. I'll return

We were out for a night to connect with friends . My husband and I ate at Baton Rouge in Ontario many years ago . We enjoyed it very much so my husband wanted to try it in Halifax. We were not disappointed.Food and service were wonderful.We rarely go out to eat because the food at most places is over priced and not enjoyable. But this is not the case at Baton Rouge. It is pricey but very enjoyable. My husband had the ribs and I the prime rib sandwich. The garlic mashed potatoes are to die for.The only thing I would suggest is that if the server asks if you would like to add things to your order , like mushrooms and onions or load up your mash potatoes , make sure you ask if it cost extra.We had a few added cost to our bill that we were not expecting.All in all a nice place to go out for dinner.

Had the ribs and loaded baked potato. Ribs were everything I wanted, tender, juicy and not too spicy. Presentation was very nice as well. Kitchen staff should be congratulated for supplying wonderful food. Job well done. Service was excellent as well. We will be back. Thank you!

Most restaurants bring a bun or bread while you wait for your meal, not here, even though prices are higher than some other casual restaurants. Four of us ordered steaks. Three were undercooked, not done at all as we had requested. One was sent back and it was returned overcooked with charred edges after everyone else was done eating. No offer of a discount, terrible meal, our 2nd bad experience there and the last. Ruined our anniversary dinner.

Excellent meal. Beef filet done perfectly. Back ribs delicious. Veges done perfectly.

Only problem occurred when we ordered Monte Cristos with our cookie dessert. The coffees were warm. Luke warm. Usually special coffees are hot and filled to the brim with coofee and then whipped cream towering above the glass. These coffees' whipped cream did not eeach the brim of the glass.

The server was at our table too quickly, too often. For example, we were escorted to our table and were just removing our coats, and our server was there asking us questions. It was a Friday evening, this was a supposed to be a relaxed dining experience but he was serving us how we would like to be served at lunch when time is an issue (if a working lunch).

The decor is outdated. Red vinyl padded booths are not fine dining.

Great food with huge portions at a good price! However, did not like the Valentine's Day set-up. We were placed at a table in the middle of a room and it was very open. We were also seated very close to the people on either side of us. Just needed a little more personal space, but other than that it was great. I'd definitely recommend!!

Although I have been to Baton Rouge Halifax before, had this been my first time I would not be back. Our server while ok, I found inattentive to refills and taking our order. When we asked for a second spoon, it was as though an argument was chosen as there were already two spoons on the table. We wanted to share a dessert and it came with one, as did the tea we ordered and we wanted another to eat with.
The atmosphere was quite distracting - there was a large party upstairs. We were placed to eat in the mezzanine, when there would have been ample space to place our table on the quiet side of the dinning room. The group was loud, and some of the language used was not appropriate for other diners to want to hear.

Myself, my Mom and my Husband had the ribs. The last view visits during dinner service, the ribs have not been hot, they have been barely warm.
We have gone several times for the Friday lunch ribs and they are always fantastic! It is beyond me why there is a problem with dinner service.
My Dad had Salmon and that was great.
I’d love to see them step up their game with the ribs.
The noise level was unusually loud, due to a table of disrespectful loud, cursing men behind us. They seemed to be under the impression the louder they were, and the more they used profanity the funnier they were. Not so!

Our first visit to Baton Rouge on Friday 26 January 2018 was highly enjoyable from the beginning to the end. We were warmly welcomed to our reserved table and Mitch, our waiter, was exceptional; he provided recommendations for the ribs and made sure we would become regular patrons. The food was very tasty and was served in a prompt fashion. The staff were all attentive. We were offered a dessert but could not eat it because the main course was so filling but it was a lovely gesture.

Well done!

Annual staff party
Food was average
Service was very low key
Even though we were a party of twelve
Did not even offer anything special or go out
If their way to make it a special experience
