Surprisingly busy. Too many tables crammed into the space, as a result it was difficult to get in or out of our table. Food was good but not extraordinary although it was promptly served. Staff was courteous and service was good. Lots of parking available.

The food at this location was great like all other locations it was a similar ambiance and best quality you can taste in the ribs and seafood. I got a nice speciality cocktail that really tasted as good as it sounded. My server was a bit focused on a another group most of the time was a bit of a nuisance when I wanted to order or make a request , the Steak was also not cooked how requested but overall it was a positive experience. Will definitely be returning if in the area.

My prime rib was not a great cut. It had a lot of veins making it very tough to cut the meat. Apparently another friend had the same problem but didn't say anything until he found out that I had the same problem. I complained and got a 2nd serving which was quite a bit better than the 1st one.

Ate here with my wife and 2 year old. The service was great all around, however the food lacked in many areas. I had a Caesar salad to start which was mediocre at best, some of the lettuce looked a bit old and had dark edges. I had the ribs & shrimp as an entree with fries which was fantastic as usual for Baton Rouge. My wife ordered the prime rib medium rare and she said it was like warm at best. It looked brown on the outside and a bit overcooked on the inside, she loves prime rib and did not enjoy it whatsoever.

All in all their ribs & fries have always been great, it's other menu items that have lacked over the times we've eaten at various Baton Rouge locations.

Food were great. Servers were cold, didn't get a single smile from them. We felt being rush. The server grab my husband's plate 3x and my plate 2x. I mean, they can politely ask, don't grab. It felt awkward on our part.

Twice this year we’ve had large group dinners here. Each time the service and the food has been great. We’re always amazed how everyone’s food arrives at the same time, hot. Separate bills are always accurate and never a problem

Really responsible service. I've ordered medium done steak that was server well done. They offered a new steak which was really great. Their vegetable and chicken soup of the day were amazing. I liked their food. I'm not a fan of seafood and their appetizers are mainly about seafood. Washrooms need a bit more care.

Had reservations for 6:15, was seated on time, spent 10 mins ordering drinks and reading the menu. Ordered at 6:25, food arrived at 6:32, not prepared to order and obviously pre cooked (taste accordingly). We wanted to spend some quality (date) time together and felt like “here’s your hat, get out”. Baton Rouge would rather turn tables quickly than make a memorable experience for their guests. Good, if the only thing you’re interested in is a VERY quick dinner.

I booked for a business dinner. Overall the food was good. Steak maybe slightly overcooked, but seasoned very well and tasted delicious! All nice fresh ingredients.
Our server did a good job. It can be difficult to handle a large table, but we were never lacking anything or waiting for anything.
We only had one small issue with the reservation. It was supposed to be for 14 people, but they only had us down for 12, and made some kind of nonsense excuse instead of just apologize. So we ended up being squeezed in. To make it worse the table next to us was seated for 14, but I only counted 11 people. Seems like somebody mixed it up.

Love coming to this Baton Rouge location versus some of the other ones in Toronto and the GTA area. It serves large portions and delicious food. I've gone to downtown locations and for the same price, I received half the portion of food and was disappointed. Baked potatoes are HUGE!

We were seated at a round table surrounded by 2 big groups. There were hardly any room for anyone to pass by or to move. The placed was so cramped that we could not even enjoy the dinner properly and there was also 2 hour seating limit - I think that's a joke. Salmon was burnt, filet mignons were bland. Don't think they can handle the capacity. Wasn't the first time there but it would be the last time.

We book this restaurant twice a year for a team dinner. The quality of food is very consistent (consistently good), and the variety is perfect for the size of group we have.
Each time we have eaten there, we have had the same waiter. He is pleasant and efficient.

Their prime rib and pasta are cooked to perfection. Unlike the other steakhouses, Baton Rouge also has kids menu so the little ones are not forced to eat New York sirloin. I think it's a good restaurant with balanced family friendliness and upscale atomphere.

Good food, reasonably priced, friendly and prompt service. If you want to impress your lady, if you want to show class and refinement in your tastes, this is the place. It's for gentlemen to take their ladies, and ladies to take their gentlemen. It's also great for groups of friends who want experience and enjoy a thoughtful and intimate dining experience together, away from your every day restaurant.

We love going to Baton Rouge. However, we have discussed over our last few visits that the steak seems unseasoned and requires salt. We are very surprised as we used to really love their steak. Not sure what has changed but flavor is everything and they are lacking. It is not only restricted to this location that we have felt this way. For the money, we will be considering elsewhere for future dinners.

The food was Ok but service was very bad. We proposed a table near the bar and we asked for another table, the hostess doesn't seem happy about that. They spill half of our bottle of wine on my kid and they propose us to chose a wine by the glass to replace it. That glass never came and we had to ask for it twice. They brought us a wine which was not the one we ordered initially.

Very bad customer experience from the beginning to the end.
