Service speed was perfect. Never look for someone they were there whenever we needed them. Nice personality. Friendly without being to friendly. Food came a a perfect speed. Not rushed or waiting. Quantity and quality were excellent.

I have been there twice now and both times very disappointed with the food. First time I ordered a steak and I am sure it was pan fried as it had a strange taste. This time I ordered a chicken dish which came with 2 pieces of chicken along with bacon and other toppings. The first piece of chicken I ate (didn't finish) had a mushy rubbery texture and if I had been at home I would have spit it out. I was almost gagging trying to get it down however the second piece had a nice texture The bacon was undercooked so didn't even attempt to eat it. Wanted to love it in order to have another dining place but won't be back.

Great menu, food was lovely, waitress was efficient and friendly and we could hear ourselves talk. Only down side was one steak out of three was a bit grisly, and that person managed just fine.

Went to Celebrate my fathers birthday. Waiter was very nice and the environment was great. The waiter gave my Dad and myself a free desert! (My birthday was a day after).

Great customer service! will for sure go back

Vraiment bien que notre service ait pu se faire en français lors de notre aniversaire de mariage
De plus le petit dessert gratuit était apprécié.

I used to go to Baton Rouge every month for many years and the food was good quality. Now that Cara has taken over Baton Rouge the food is consistently getting worse in their effort to cut operating costs. I think think is my last visit because there are many better alternatives.

We had never been before the renovations but it was an actual dream of mine to go one day haha. My boyfriend took me for our 6 year anniversary and I can very much say we had a fantastic time and meal. Our waitress was above and beyond courteous and making sure our needs were well met. Our food was prepared excellently and it’s still something I’m raving about 2 days later. I got a 12 oz New York Strip and my boyfriend got the 14oz Prime Rib with a lobster tail and the plate sizes were very good. We got a decent scoop of potatoes (compared to other steak houses) and a great variety of vegetables. The Prime Rib paired with Au Jus was wonderful. My strip with the peppercorn sauce was to die for, I kept putting the sauce on whatever I could. We spent about the same amount that we would at the Keg except got bigger meal portions for the same price. Only difference is that there was no free bread haha. Definitely someplace we will go again! I wish I had taken a picture to show off of the meals!

Was a good place to eat before they closed. Now that they have reopened with a new Manager, they seemed to have hired cooks that are just learning. Be careful what and how you order your food.

I found that the food wasnt worth the price. I ordered prime rib and it was full of fat. The mashed potatoes were chunky and hard to eat. My husbands food was not top notch either for the price.

My daughter did enjoy her burger and kids menu was a great value!

Overall we enjoyed celebrating a big anniversary and a birthday last Thursday night. All staff very friendly and attentive. They gave us time to enjoy our drinks before serving our dinners. We all ordered the full rib dinners well done. They came looking a little too well done but aside from the end ribs tasting burnt the others were tender and not dry. The only thing I would find fault with was that the waitress, who might have been fairly new, brought our complimentary anniversary/birthday dessert before clearing away our dinner dishes. Other then that the whole experience was enjoyed by all. Definitely will come again when in your area.

I felt their menu had a variety of choices to be made from ribs, chicken, steak, fish and pasta. It was very nice that they offered specials too. Our party of three ladies enjoyed our time as friends and we ended up receiving a complimentary dessert to share with the words “Happy Friendaversary”. Nice!

Went to dinner to celebrate Father’s Day. Pasta dish was delicious. Ribs dinner was just okay. Ribs were tasty, sauce was good. Side fries were fine but coleslaw was pretty bland.

I love Baton Rouge. I was very disappointed when they closed down the Whitby location. I was very excited when it reopened.
Great service. Very friendly waitress. We were seated right away. Food was very good. We love the Ribs and Chicken Tenders with dijonaisse sauce. Wine was good.
The only thing that I was a little disappointed on was I mentioned in the comments that we were celebrating our anniversary but there was no mention of it. I am not sure if this info is passed on to the restaurant when booking through Open Table

Ribs were small and burnt tasting. Not very saucy. Baked potato wasn't hot. Had trouble even melting the butter.

Food is generally good, but can be pricey. Dinner for 2 easily goes over $100 without wine. Ambience is good and the service is good as well.

First time back since it re-opened. It was just ok. Our meals were cold and we sent them back. Got new meals but no apology. Had to ask 3 different people for water and waited on drinks. The Keg offers a better experience

4 of the 6 meals we ordered were over cooked. Dry chicken that we could not bite into. I was shocked actually. We told the waitress and she offered to bring more. Why would I want more of the same crappy food. No thank you. No food comp. We paid over $200 on Mother's Day and then we picked up a pizza on the way home. Everyone left hungry because we couldn't eat our dinner because it was inedible. I'll never go to this location again. So, so disappointed.

Hadn’t been to Baton Rouge in awhile.
We were a party of 8 and everyone liked what they ordered.
Food was excellent and the service was awesome considering it was a very busy night.

Common complaint which Usually can’t be avoided is the noise level. Very high.

Sarah our waitress was wonderful. We were a party of 8 and she was awesome with a table full of 14-15 year olds.

Newly renovated and very nice inside.

I had asked for a large round table and it was ready and set up when we got there.

We had a great experience.
