Just finished the Half 'n Half Platter. Five big butterfly shrimp, two catfish fillets, three hush puppies, delicious dirty rice and french fries...And that was after the side salad with croutons and bleu cheese. Scrump-dilly-icious!

We were visiting for a wedding in Baton Rouge. Some friends suggested Parrain’s. The food was good as well as the service. Good down-home Cajun food !
