This is the first time we have eaten indoors at Baton Rouge since the pandemic started. Was fantastic being back. Food is even better than I remembered. I especially appreciate having one person serving us during our entire visit, as opposed to the way the place was run before, with multiple servers over the course of the visit. The wine is a little pricey, but that is what all places do...overcharge on wine. We will be back though.

The service was quick and the servers were attentive. The servings were ample and the salmon dish that I had was delicious and priced appropriately.

We ordered the Ribs and my Wife had a side of Fries while I had a side of Garlic Mashed Potatoes.

All the food was Luke warm at best.

The Ribs were badly overcooked and dry. Quite Chewy.

They ignored my table for the first 20 minutes while they served the people around me, when I got up to remind them that we haven't been served the girl at the desk apologized but it took another 10 minutes before anyone came. I doubt we will be going back.

I visited you a month ago and it was outstanding. Yesterday I visited with my family and friends and the waitress was was very slow in bringing us our drinks, dessert and bill. The Prime Rib dinner was over cooked, small piece for the price and looked gray in colour. Also there could have been more vegetables on everyone's plate. Will visit again later in time.

The group behind us we extremely loud rude and obnoxious. Management did very little but continue to over severe them alcohol which only fuelled there drunken terrible behaviour. Management needs to get a handle on their patrons as we were not the only ones disturbed many patrons were upset. Service was ok and food was good

We were disappointed. It was crowded, noisy, and the ribs were dry ... nothing like our past experiences at BR. Along with reduced options and increased prices, we will think before going back. It was a Saturday, so maybe it would be better on another night.

Server was absolutely lovely!! Loads of people, but solid vaccine check upon entering.

Waiter helped me decide as I wasn’t wanting red meat and his favourite dish ~ the seafood pasta, had a fabulous sauce however the shrimp and scallops were pretty firm as dish was served so hot that I had to let it cool down quite a bit before diving in… I imagine that it was either over heated or left too long to boil, but the flavour was great once the dish cooled down.

I have eaten at this Baton Rouge outlet for many years and always enjoyed every aspect of the venue. Yesterday was profoundly disappointing - we weren't seated where I requested, there were wines on the list which they didn't have, the food took much too long to arrive. My steak was dry and tough, my guest left half her meal on the plate. I hope this is temporary and due to Covid but I won't be back for a while.

Baton Rouge used to be a favourite of ours so as our first night out since the lock downs, we decided to go back. The place is as nice as we remembered and we ordered our usual prime rib grilled. Unfortunately, the steak didn't live up to our memories. There was very little that was prime about it. It was tough and chewy and was more top sirloin than prime rib. The vegetables and baked potato and even wild rice were all fantastic though. Too bad the star of the plate didn't shine. The service was efficient and friendly and we didn't feel too crowded inside.

The ribs and the dessert were good and the portions were generous.
I withheld higher scoring for the following two reasons:
The prime rib was very disappointing. It tasted like it has been mostly cooked on the frying pan rather than in the oven.
Secondly, I had requested a candle on the table since we were celebrating a birthday. The candle never arrived. Disappointing.

With COVID we didn't know what to expect, but were very happy with the precautions taken by the staff. We'd made an early reservation and the restaurant wasn't too busy. There were plexiglass dividers attached to the top of the booth seats separating each booth and made us feel much more protected. Our server was great! Friendly and professional. Don't remember her name but the Server number said 66 on the bill. As for the food - delicious as always. Missed not having the spicy chicken bites appetizer (not on the menu), but the spicy shrimp were very good. Ribs were excellent as well as the garlic mashed potato. For dessert the Tiramisu cannot be beat! Really looking forward to going back again.

Baton Rouge is like an overpriced Applebee's or Montana's. The food used to be really good but it's not anymore. I ordered the Ribs and Chicken and it looked like they lathered gobs of sauce to make it palatable. Maybe it's just this Baton Rouge... Fortunately, the service was good... but not a fine dining experience...

The choice of Baton Rouge was for the steak and we were not disappointed. The portions were plentiful and service was excellent.
Our waiter was very courteous, and was mindful of our granddaughters allergies. He was polite and personable.
The attention of the restaurant to the Covid-19 rules were adhered to. To be recommended.
