We went so wife & daughter could have the monte cristo sandwich, I had the steak. The service was typical attentive Disney service. I think I had the best bowl of gumbo I have ever had. It was fun watching the pirates sail past and hearing them scream as they plummet down the waterfall into Davey Jones' Locker.

I really love sitting in the front row here, looking out over the realistic bayou and watching the boats go by at the start of Pirates of the Caribbean. I have been here five times, always by the water. Always very prompt service, very tasty food. If you think you can just "decide last minute" to make a reservation, you... More

I like this place a lot. It does not serve alcohol, but they do turn a blind eye if you bring a little something to pour into your mint julep...actually its so damned dark in there that they couldn't see you anyway. I love the set up of this place. It is "outdoors" but it is actually inside the Pirates... More

Food is decent but not that great. The service sucks and I mean it Sucks. IF you want to sit by the water front and gaze at the Pirates of the Caribbean riders drifting by then its cool and the ambiance if definitely cool, but its not worth the over priced menu. Skip it and drop by Cafe Orleans for... More

My husband and I went to Disneyland for my birthday and decided last minute we should try making dinner reservations at one of the 5 star restaurants before fireworks. I wanted to take a look at this restaurant I found online, so after getting off the pirates of the carribean ride went to the front of the restaurant where there... More

Although many folks find this place to be excellent on many levels, I have never been as impressed as I think I should be. Slow service is only the beginning. The food itself is standard at best. For the price it should be a lock down excellent culinary experience. In my experience, it simply is not worth the hassle of... More

Yes we had to wait 30 minutes even with a reservation, but still fun after all these years. Great service. Surprisingly good food. Kids loved the virgin drinks with the ice cubes. I went about 5 years ago and it was not very good so they are doing a much better job with cooking and menu.

The food was excellent - great gumbo, steaks, lamb, lobster.... The atmosphere was really nice and, as usual. Disney created a believable, upscale, back-yard setting with tables under strings of lantern lights. The park was no where to be seen or heard. The wait staff was very good - there when you needed them but not overbearing. If your little... More

For years as we rode "Pirates" we always floated past the Blue Bayou restaurant and dreamed of eating there. Finally this past year, I made reservations online a few weeks before going (highly recommended). Check out the menu and prices online so you won't be shocked. We knew before going that it was a "high end" restaurant. Whenever we travel,... More

Thirteen family members went to a very crowded Disneyland on a Tuesday this summer. We got tickets through the group dept. and made a reservation at the Blue Bayou through the Dining reservation dept. We have been going to BLUE BAYOU since our adult kids were little kids. We arrived early and were subject to the most inefficient runaround of... More
