We came on a very busy Sunday brunch day, so delays in service were to be expected... The food, though, was great! The Trio Benedict was awesome, and our friend enjoyed her omelet. The food definitely makes the dining experience worth it!

The service was excellent. The food was great too, but I just wish the steak was juicer however I know it very difficult to perfect a well done steak and keep the juiciness. Overall great place and will definitely return for the lemonade and atmosphere.

We had a nice Valentine’s Day brunch. The complimentary pickles and chips were always such a treat. The bartender made me a lovely non- alcoholic mock tail with blueberries and basil. The Korean barbecue ribs special was tasty, but the crispy brussel sprouts are the biggest hit with me! The wait staff is attentive, but not hovering. Great experience as always.

We visited BRQ for our Valentine’s Day date night. We shared the crab and Brie empanadas and frog legs, both delicious. I had the BBQ Salmon and he had the wedge salad with shrimp. Mine was very good, cooked perfectly. He wasn’t very impressed with the habanero ranch dressing he got, but we both enjoyed our meal. I did notice our server was not as attentive as other servers around us, but he got his job done. It was a great experience and I will definitely be back.

Biggest issue here is getting a table once you arrive. There is a breakdown between the hostess and determining where you will be seated. I have noticed this every time I have been there. The wait staff is great as is the food but getting seated promptly is always an issue. I don’t understand the delay when you have a reservation.

We visit Baton Rouge quite often (from California) and BRQ is a must visit every time. Food is prepared fresh and with just the right amount of spice. Meat is tender and the seafood is exactly what you would expect at a southern Louisiana restaurant. Sunday Brunch is a must!

Our table had crawfish nachos, 1/2 slab ribs with coleslaw side, pulled chicken with house salad and BBQ brisket burrito. Ribs came with small coleslaw automatically which we didn’t realize so we would have selected a different side had we read the menu a little closer. Both ribs and slaw were delicious. Chicken and salad delicious. Brisket in the BBQ burrito was very fatty. Would definitely order the crawfish nachos again. We were celebrating birthdays and the waiter brought us an enormous slice of carrot cake. It was amazing! We will be back!
