    I enjoyed my birthday dinner! Service was good, only one tiny exception, I was told I received a free dessert, but I wasn't told it had to be one dessert in particular. After I ordered it and inquired why it was on my bill, she apologized.

    Nice location. Went for a light dinner and ordered 3 appetizers. Average at best. The lobster stuffed mushrooms barely contained any lobster. 4 mushrooms that were tiny. Maybe the mains are better but would not recommend the appetizers

    steaks were not cooked properly, waitress was slow to check back to the table therefore the rest of our group was almost done eating before I could tell her my steak was much too undercooked. Another steak was overcooked. Appetizers were small portions and underwhelming. Overall did not feel like we got any value for the price point.

    Quite disappointed in our experience here. We waited over 45 minutes before we even had our drinks. There was a lot of over promising and under delivering. Food was decent. Nothing to write home about. It seemed like we were forgotten about. A few mix ups with food and drinks. Not a place I would go out of my way to go to again.

    First experience for Baton Rouge was in ottawa it is phenomenal. I was hoping the same in Halifax but was disappointed. The 2 steak and rib where cold to start with and my wife ordered some kind of bowl with lobster in it , she was almost empty. The lobster tail that i ordered with the steak was extra small but was ok

    Our waiter kept apologizing for being too busy then wouldn’t return for long spells of time.. checked on us once after someone else ran the food to our table. We weren’t charged for my husbands desert because it took 15 minutes, but our food took over 30 minutes to make it to table. We understood it was busy, upstairs but downstairs was quiet. That being said, it was quiet in terms of tables being full. There were two gentleman cursing and carrying on at the bar for a long period of time. Still served, and allowed to carry on. We had to sit in awkward silence because talking to eachother meant we had to yell over the two men. Just not something we would have expected on a Sunday night at a fine dining establishment

    My wife and I arrived at the baton Rouge on Feb 17 for a 6:00pm dinner service. We both ordered the half rack ribs with a Caesar salad. When ordering the server asked if we were as the half rack wasn't very big. We should have taken her advice as the serving was not much larger than my cell phone and the Caesar salad came in a small round dish. The ribs were obviously reheated as the meal came in five or six minutes and you can't cook ribs that quick plus they were very dried up. From sitting down to finishing our meal took no more than fifteen minutes. If I want fast food I'll go to MacDonalds.

    We made a reservation for our anniversary and we were seated in the bar next to a heater. We would have preferred the dining room. It was very warm at times. Our server was more preoccupied with her other tables. We waited to order even though she walked by a few times. Ordered dessert and coffee and the coffee was almost gone by the time the dessert came. Food was great. The experience was not.

    When you put on a Dine Around menu, the purpose is to showcase your absolute BEST so that locals will be enticed back year round. While the ambiance was fine, the service was acceptable and the noise was a low murmur, the food - that all-important piece to bring customers in - was a sad disappointment. The steak, while cooked correctly, was so tough my spouse couldn't cut through it. Tasted ok, but really gristly. The vegetables were a greasy pile of discolored goo that looked like they'd been in a steam table all night, but we were there early with hardly anybody else in the restaurant! (A red flag I missed, I suppose). I got the rack of ribs. I don't know what they used to season them, but it had no flavor at all. They fell off the bone but the meat (the little there was) tasted off, not quite tainted, but closer than I would have served. And again, NO FLAVOR beyond the slight hint of char from the burnt parts. I will try other restaurants in the area, there are plenty. I see no reason to return to Baton Rouge Grillhouse.

    One steak was ordered medium well but came out more on the well done side. Grey. Also the table hote add on for 15$ was confusing. Not only for us but the waiter.. asked if we get the dessert and salad and drink. Was told yes but when we went to order dessert was told it was an add on...so we paid 15$ for salad and a pop. Dissatisfied and disappointed

    I asked for a birthday dessert and a song. I called right before my reservation to make sure it was possible and I was told it could. When we arrive our waiter made a comment saying “oh will make this birthday special” We unfortunately left without it and I was not impressed. I felt rushed out of there. Food was amazing but being forgotten about wasn’t. We also only seen our waiter when he gave us drinks and took out orders after that he didn’t even collect our checks. We tipped according to our service..

    Steaks were not good and were not cooked properly . One person in our party had to send their steak back twice - finally gave up . Ordered medium rare , both times the steak was blue rare . A server brought the wrong order to us . Put the food on the table and we had to tell her it was not our food. My steak was good on the outer edges but chewy and tough towards the middle . The service was poor . Very disappointing as we were there to celebrate a birthday . Haven't been there for a number of years and was disappointed!

    We felt extremely rushed. We’re happy when the food comes quick, but we had barely taken two sips of our drink. As soon as we were finished the bill came. Also incredibly loud. We were sat next to a huge dinner party.
