The meal was excellent, the service was attentive. I would rank it as Baton Rouge's top place to eat. What I did not like was it is always full with people waiting to be seated, anytime you go there.

Always some of the freshest seafood in town and consistently excellent. Great service! Their steais are not too bad either. It feels local and the Ortego's are great people and provide excellent service.
