we went there for lunch and had $10 special for ribs and fries. Since we always get the ribs, we thought we had picked a great day to come for ribs. We were so disappointed. the ribs were hard, they didn't fall off the bone! The manager came over and apologized and said that he also checked the kitchen and said that he noticed the ribs hard as well.. He gave us $20 gift card and compensated our apps as well. This was our 2nd time going to this location, and had 2 bad experiences here. We will not be using the gift card as we will not be going to this location again......we usually go to the location in Vaughan or Richmond Hill and they never disappoint.

Well, what can I say! This restaurant was the worst of all Baton Rouge locations. My husband and I ordered the prime rib -- it didn't look like prime rib (seems like the cook grilled it too) and it sure didn't taste like it. My fries were cold. My husband got a container of "au jus", but I didn't. My son ordered the ribs -- so small and didn't "fall off the bone" at all. My daughter in law ordered the chicken tenders. She said it didn't taste like chicken -- it was passed around the table and we all agreed. My husband thought it might be fish....??? We sent it back and ordered the hamburger instead. On the bright side, the calamari was good. The bill came to $250 and we WILL NEVER GO BACK TO ANY BATON ROUGE again.

Service was good, attentive server. The side of vegetables with two of the entrees were extremely undercooked to the point of being raw and inedible. I do prefer al dente veggies but these were raw. I asked the server to inform the kitchen. No adjustments were offered on our bill.

Food was very good, ok end of ribs was a BIT overdone. But food was great. Service was wonderful.
But am completely mistyfied WHY people next to us thought it was ok for both of them to be on their phones, playing videos of some sort with their speaker volume up?
Other than that, great evening

We were celebrating our Wedding Anniversary and wanted a great meal before attending a show downtown and this lovely restaurant was on the way. It was a Tuesday evening, so the place was not busy. We were a few minutes early for our reservation, but found our table ready and the genial host welcomed us warmly.
Prime rib is a favourite of both my wife and I, and we were pleased with the perfect preparation and presentation. We ordered a side of mushrooms and were amazed at the quantity!
Everything was spot on and we enjoyed our dinner thoroughly. After dinner, the host gave us a brief tour of the multi-level building. There was obvious pride in delivering good service in a warm and richly toned establishment. It would be a go to place if we lived closer.

Food was not fantastic. Potato chowder was so thick, it was hard to drink.

The burger, while tasty was dry.

Had the Old Fashioned, but drink was too small and was way too sweet.

Service was ok. Didn't feel like the server had time for us. The manager was attentive though.

Overall experience 2.5/5.

Never order the Ahi Tuna. The worst I have ever had.
From sampling others meals I would say that if you are not in the mood for prime rib, steak or ribs then you definitely should go somewhere else.

This is our nth time and family's favourite to dine in. But in this particular Thursday June 29 my son's graduation our experienced was not great as compared before. We have to ask to every refill of our sweet iced tea, the top sirloin steak that we order was bland, the ribs was not as tasty as before. Salad and appetizer was okay over all dissatisfied with our dining experience on that night.

The food was not as good as what I expected. Chicken was too salty, the ribs were burned and the losters were too dry. My previous experience with the food there was great and I loved to spend my special occasions dinner at Baton Rouge. The service was good though. But I was really disappointed at the food and it was not worth it at all.

Not that great. The chefs don't know how to make steak. Can't tell the difference between a blue steak and a rare steak as well as a medium rare and a well done steak. Lobster was also over cooked to the point that it was hard to bite into. Learn to cook better. But service was great. Our waitress was really nice and attentive.

Our family experience was not a good one. Made a reservation for Fathers day 2017. Arrived and it was not busy at all. They sat us in a corner section and completely forgot about us. We waited 15 minutes before I got up to find a staff member to help us order. They waiter arrived and admitted nobody knew we were there. The food we ordered arrived in time (apps and main). The fries and chicken for my kids tasted like it was fried in old oil and smelled immediately upon arriving to our table. We asked to exchange it and were offered another option instead. The pasta for my kids was the other option and it arrived cold. And didn't look presentable at all. Just pasta plopped on a plate. No garnish or anything. The brownie and ice cream tasted like it was from a box and smelt stale. Compared to other dinner restaurants, tbis place was bad on this day. Thr manager did not look interested when we told him of our experience. They did comp 1 kids meal.

The service was great and so was the food. The wait times for food was rather long but the server and manager checked up on our table of 5 and engaged in conversation. The server packed my food away for me, suggested food items and wished my dad a happy fathers day. The ribs were great, the chicken was a little dry but good. The peanut butter brownie cheesecake was good, was more of a moose texture. Food was filling.

The prime rib and veggies were perfectly cooked. The garlic mashed potatoes were not good and we went specifically because my husband wanted garlic mashed potatoes. They tasted like they were from a box and neither of us could taste any the garlic.

The waiter started out doing well since we were the only ones in that side of the restaurant. He asked if I wanted water but never brought it and left us waiting too long at the end of the meal when he said he'd back soon so we went elsewhere for dessert.

Food tasted fine but COLD. Had to ask for peppercorn sauce and other sauce as they were forgotten. Items served not as described on menu, overpriced will not return. All the service staff were friendly too bad the food was not served hot. Not a romantic place very noisy. Lots of families with young kids if you like noise it would be fine. We wanted a romantic dinner away from our kids.

Unfortunately, this was a negative experience considering it was an occasion set up for my birthday with immediate family members. We were told after 30 minutes of our order that they had exhausted their inventory of sweet potato fries and we had to substitute.....and an order of steak and lobster was not desirable as the meat was harder than concrete.

This really made our dinner experience a wash out considering we had planned this for some time.

The service was okay, but the ambiance wasn't on par for a restaurant of that caliber. We asked if we could substitute an item due to food restrictions and we were told no due to 'corporate'. Not worth the money and not an experience we were expecting from Baton Rouge. It didn't live up to the hype.

I would highly recommend The Baton Rouge in The Old Scott House for a special event, party or just a lovely dinner. Thank you for such a fabulous party. It was warm and inviting as always, and Chris took such great care to make our dinner perfect. We had a wonderful 80th birthday party for my Mom - everything was handled impeccably. Chris's team kept in touch with me prior to the event, the private room and table was all set up when we arrived early to add some decorations, and service through the entire evening by Chris and Derrick and the rest of the serving team was attentive, respectful and top notch. We all chose our favourite meals from the extensive menu - all delicious and all served simultaneously! Quite a feat with a large group. Medium rare steak was juicy medium rare. Fall off the bones ribs were the special of the day, and the choice of half our group, with delicious garlic mashed potatoes, fresh local seasonal veggies, and loaded and stuffed baked potatoes, which elicited "mmmm" exclamations. Then a perfect finish - the melt in your mouth desserts; light as air white chocolate raspberry cheescake, creme brulee and scrumptious apple crumble. A special birthday platter appeared at the perfect time with Mom's chosen dessert, a lighted candle and Happy 80th Birthday decoratively written in glossy red icing on the platter. We relaxed and enjoyed family and present opening in conjunction with coffee and dessert. A wonderful time and many great memories!

We went for a birthday celebration with the family. I asked for a reservation for 7 including 2 high chairs. When we got there the table was set up for 15 people and the reasson we were told was they had no tables for 7. I guess if you ask for a table for 7 the next best thing is to give you a table for 15. Looking around there were 3 tables for 8 being served. I asked them to remove the extra chairs and table and this was done. We all ordered and the meals came in a normal amount of time. One meal which was a prime rib and was requested to be well done, came out rare and it was sent back. When it came back again it was still rare and had to be sent back again. In the mean time everyone else was eating and almost finished by the time the meal came back again, finally cooked properly. Instead of telling us that to get a well done prime rib it had to be grilled as opposed to au jus we were not told and thus it was finally brought out correctly after the third time and at that time we were told it had to be grilled. This information should have been forthcoming when the meal was ordered. The person whose meal was brought late rushed to eat since everyone else had finished. We also ordered a childs meal and the drink and dessert did not come until we had to ask for it. It ruined a wonderful day with family and I was very upset. I had a rehearsal dinner for my son and daughter in law 4 years ago at the same restaurant and there were no issues. I will not recommend this to anyone and feel that after spending over 200$ for a meal I was let down and extremely disappointed.
