The food was excellent, by far one of the best steaks I have ever eaten, I ordered the 10oz Filet Mignon and it came to $44.85 (tax included). My steak perfectly cooked (Well Done & Chicago), was not even dry and really tender. The staff is Excellent, our server Cora-Lynn was really friendly and smart, loved that she actually took... More

May be the most consistent and delicious restaurant in Halifax. Warm greeting at the door, excellent service by several servers, great drinks and the best steak in Halifax. Well priced and more food than I could eat. Can't wait to come back!

Had my step-daughters 18th birthday dinner at Baton Rouge last night and it was delicious! The steak and garlic mashed potato were so good! My husband even remarked that the steak was better than a certain steak house chain that shall remain nameless lol. We were very impressed. Service by Mike was excellent and the birthday dessert was a nice... More

I ate supper here recently with a group. The food & drinks were good and our server, Jason, did an excellent job. The spinach dip and calamari were stand-out dishes. The ribs were good and very tender. They have a great selection of different sangrias. The atmosphere is casual - think booths and big sturdy tables, and if there was... More

In considering dinner options after a long and busy week, I really wanted a great steak. We had several options, but I had never tried Baton Rouge so I suggested it. My dinner guest had visited the BR in Montreal and equated the food with a Boston Pizza level. I almost decided to choose another restaurant because I am not... More

We stopped in for an early dinner and were able to order from the lunch or dinner menu. We had the cheese dip appetiser which was better than any queso and was served at the perfect temperature. Or steaks were cooked exactly as we ordered and everything was at the perfect temperature to eat. Our waiter Nathaniel was superb checking... More

This restaurant is definitely one to remember and re-visit. The food was great: I started with a cream of potato-soup, which tasted amazing but unfortunately was served cold. The butter was nice, the strawberry daiquiri even better, but the signature spareribs, served with coleslaw, rucula and mashed potatoes was just finger-lickin´ good. Think soft meat, falling from the bone, with... More

Thank you for the wonderful review. It is so nice to read about the great dining experience you had with us. I apologize to you for the cold potato soup. It is a lovely appetizer when served hot. I agree our ribs are absolutely fall off the bone delicious. I laughed when I read you took a taxi home instead... More

We dined here as a party of six. We were greeted nicely and promptly seated. First up, we ordered drinks. They were all fantastic and it was nice to see a true bartender mixing drinks the way it's supposed to be done! For apps, we all shared calamari, spinach dip, and sweet potato fries. We highly recommend them all. Our... More
