    I was disappointed to learn that my favorite dish, grilled salmon with asparagus is no longer available. I ordered Chicken Mamou with Tasso cream sauce on the side. It still came with a lot of sauce on it and additional side of cream sauce.

    BRQ RestaurantResponded 1 day agoWe loved that dish, too! Thanks for trying something different and for the review!

    Something big has changed at BRQ regarding the food. My family has been happily going here for years, but that may have to change despite the excellent service. The once bodacious chicken fried steak was as flat as a slice of lunch meat, dredged with cornmeal, and a teaspoon of gravy on top. My pastrami sandwich was completely inedible because the meat was hard as a rock. Our server offered to bring another sandwich or steak but I didn’t see the point because another chicken fried steak would likely be the same frozen patty disaster. Another person stopped by and introduced themselves as an operations manager, but I didn’t want to make a big deal of this in the middle of what was otherwise an enjoyable multi generational family lunch. The staff did what they could, but some cutbacks must’ve been made in the kitchen. I will pay more if they’ll go back to higher quality food. Chicken from chicken and waffles was good,waffles looked great but were dry. Whatever has caused these food corners to be cut is ruining a great restaurant.

    First time to eat here; my grandchildren took me to celebrate my birthday. Our server, Steven, (or Stephen (spl?) is excellent! He is personable, friendly, and helpful. I'm from Texas and the sliced brisket, I had, was excellent. I had to take one point off of 'food' because it seemed the sauces, the fried onion rings, the dressing for the onion rings all were vinegar based and that's just not my favorite. HOWEVER, The piece of birthday cake offered was a "big" surprise, WOW! Thank you!

    We thought it would be an interesting try and we had family ask us to try it out. We were not overly impressed by any aspect of the restaurant. I am a crab cake lover, I make them myself so any time they have crab cakes I try them. I would say if these were not pre-made frozen they should have been. With a $25 value I expect lump cakes, not bread patties with some meat inside. Moving on to the meals, I had a BBQ quesadilla and it was lacking cheese and flavor. Would have just the same with come tortillas and a bowl of BBQ chicken. I tried my wife's pull pork and if we overcooked with no bite left, just mush. A couple of high notes and why we may try one more time. The Mac & Cheese was good and the coleslaw as good as well.

    The food was excellent. However, our server seemed to be lost. If they had been busy it would have been easier to overlook. Our meal arrived before most of our drinks (ice tea & soft drinks), and another server was able to provide us the things we needed to enjoy our meal with friends who where 1st time visitors.

    Food was delicious. Menu had a good variety of offerings at a range of price points, so everyone will be pleased if they choose to eat hear. Service was great and noise level was quiet, but we dined here at 4pm so it wasn't busy. We were driving from Baton Rouge back to NOLA, so it is a bit of a drive away from NOLA, but we'll worth the drive. I am writing this review about 2 months after we ate there, but the food was that delicious, it is bringing back fond memories 😋

    We’d been here several years again for brunch and it was good then. Tonight we came for dinner and enjoyed ourselves again. The pickles and chips are delicious! The cocktails were delicious and our server was great to keep them coming per our request. Our food was pretty good…three of us had sliders of some kind (BBQ and fried chicken) and another had a BBQ platter. The sides were very good as well. Large portions of food that couldn’t be finished.

    Hostess and management were rude and couldn’t find the reservation. I had to show them the Open Table reservation and still questioned the reservation saying that they couldn’t find the reservation. Suddenly, 4 people were at the front hostess table rudely trying to handle the situation. Half of the party was already seated at the table.

    BRQ is an excellent spot for friends and family to gather for a break from the hectic lives we lead. The ambiance is superb, elegant without being stuffy. The service is too notch; thank you Benji (I hope I spelled that correctly). Be aware, however, while the BBQ Nachos are excellent, they are extremely filling!

    Cute place when we drove up and walked in. Bathroom were tired and crowded, definitely need updating and expanding or reconfiguring layout. Server was nice but slow to get answers regarding menu and replacement of ice, condiments and even silverware. Food was fair, was not flavorful or executed well. Chicken and waffles were dry and overcooked. A bit overpriced for the quality and taste.

    The server was excellent! But the runner spilled beer all over the floor while pouring the glass. And when the staff is dragging the chairs across the floor and moving tables it gets really really loud . They need to learn how do pick them up to keep the noise level down. Once again the food was great and the service was quick.The beer selection is really good too.the. The cornbread was dry and the Texas toast wasn’t even toasted or buttered. We really appreciate our waiter combining our orders into one to save about $20! We’ll be back as soon as we can. We love BRQ!
