We came for my birthday and had a delightful dinner! I had the louisiane... fresh pan fried fish topped with butter sauce and lump crab meat. Oh so yummy!!!
I don’t remember what my hubby got but he loved his too. It was such a great time. And we had a scratch off for the promotion they were doing around the holidays and got $20 off our meal!

I’ll start by saying Louisiana Lagniappe has phenomenal food. There’s no doubt on that. If you’ve tried the Destin location, you’d know that as well. And while the food was great on our first trip to the BR location, the service unfortunately left us with a 2-3 star experience. When the customer has to get up from the table to try and flag down the waitress just to get a refill that was already promised and way overdue, that’s not good. When the waitress doesn’t even check to see how we liked the food until we had finished it, that’s also not good. When the waitress took 10-15 minutes between even checking on the table, that’s just not good. Now, in fairness, I got another employee to refill my drink to which he apologized. That made me wonder if it was indeed partially his responsibility to look after the tables in that room so it may not all be the waitress’ fault. The bottom line is the service wasn’t good and I can’t help but wonder if it was due to us being seated in a back corner cutout of a room. My advice and the advice I’ll be using if we ever give the BR location another chance, be careful where they seat you and REFUSE a table that is not very easily visible to waitstaff.

I had a business dinner here and it was my first time eating at this restaurant. The food was very good and the waitress was attentive. We had the boudin balls and stuffed mushrooms for an appetizer. We were unsure about trying the boudin balls but trusted the waitresses recommendation and they were very good. Dinner was excellent and service was at a good pace. I highly recommend this restaurant.
