James was a wonderful server and we enjoyed shrimp Remoulade and bowls of gumbo with our iced teas. Music was a little loud so we were happy to be seated more to a corner in the back. A table of young women near us was quite noisy but I'm sure they were just enjoying have a lunch play date.

Decided to try this on our way through Lafayette last night after reading reviews. Our food was just fair. The seafood won tons were great. The Louisiana seafood gumbo was served luke warm and had virtually no flavor or seafood in it, just a few little crab claw shells and two little shrimp! We will not be returning.

Go at least once. The food is ok. The real attraction is the many Rodrigue prints and originals adorning the walls. If it turns out that you like the food, then that is a bonus.

Blue Dog Cafe is a favorite with the locals. You will get wonderful service, the food is exceptionable and there are evenings with local bands. Prices are reasonable and the portion are large. You will get a great representation of our local cuisine,.
