Loved the seafood pasta, seafood and corn chowder. Chose the cold slaw over the salad, and I am glad I did. Had an added touch of peanuts, along with a creamy sauce. Service was great!

Heard about Parrians from a colleague as a must visit restaurant in Baton Rouge, and he was right. Excellent dinner. Oysters, vermilion fish. Very good selection of Cajun seafood, good prices. Service was perfect (thank you Ruthie). Will definitely be back.
