The food is always good and reasonably priced for what you get. Went with my parents who are a little milder and noise level made it a little difficult to hear. Not terrible, but just be aware.

Delish food, good service (even on a busy Friday). Only complaint is how close the tables are packed inside. It can be noisy and crowded, so remember this place for a fun night with a group—but consider somewhere else if you’re looking for more of an intimate-date-night vibe.

Charming outside and in, this is a great find in Baton Rouge! The food was diverse and very tasty. The appetizers were great and we sampled a number of different entrees and were very satisfied! The service was very good. Quick, thoughtful and attentive wait staff made us very comfortable as we all entered our food comas.
Can't wait for our next trip!

Always impressed with the service at this place. The food is great too, although I wasn’t a huge fan of what I ordered (Nashville hot chicken sliders with a side of potato salad). I enjoyed it, but at $15, I found it to be way overpriced. My wife’s chicken and waffles - which were outstanding (and I’m not crazy about chicken and waffles) - were $2 cheaper, and it appeared to be more food. Overall, very happy with the visit as always.

We enjoyed our meal here with friends. Craft cocktails were excellent, onion rings were divine. Pulled pork was a bit dry, but ribs, brisket, tacos, and pit beans were all great. Portions were very large, we should have shared an entree between two people. Service was a bit sketchy. Server was very pleasant and seemed knowledgeable, but was either over worked or a bit ditzy.

We didn't quite know what to expect from BRQ when we walked in. We were in the area from upstate New York dropping our son off for his first year at LSU and we knew we wanted some BBQ. Everything we had was exceptional. The brisket cut so easily and you could slide the bone right out of the baby back ribs. My wife had the blackened redfish, and she said it was among the best fish she's ever had. Cocktails are made well and our server was very attentive and helpful. When will you be opening a BRQ up here in Albany? Either way, we'll be back!

The food here is great. Though they have a limited brunch menu but this is mitigated by also offering the broader menu. The construction is superb such that even when full to capacity you can hear your companions and need not yell to be heard. The music provides nice background. Their happy hour is fab too!

A lot of staff around - except our waitress. We LOVE brunch at BRQ when we visit BTR, and this was our 5th visit. Things were just way off this time. We had a party if six, and two were looking forward to Southern Benedict (see online brunch menu!). It wasn’t offered (update online brunch menu for the keto-crowd!). One person’s order was never taken. One app came out with our food (lucky for the guy who never ordered). And while the Bloody Mary Bar may be cool, we just ordered Bloody Mary’s but got sent there ($14/piece vs $9!). Lastly, plates weren’t cleared and we just never saw her again until one of us went to the hostess stand and asked for the check. Really good food tho!!!
