Growing up in Louisiana and having a mother who was the best cook ever, makes it hard to eat out when I visit there because I am usually disappointed. But, the Blue Dog was a pleasant surprise. Be prepared to wait because of its popularity with the locals, but you can have cocktails at the bar while you wait. There... More

Was last here two years ago and the service and food is still as good as ever. Only drawback is that you should be prepared for a long wait for a table as this restaurant is extremely popular. Good assortment of Creole and Cajun foods. Service is good but somewhat slow due to the number of customers. Still, it's still... More

My husband and I ate here several evenings ago. I had the Whiskey Bay Flounder. It was tasteless. The menu says it's stuffed with crab; well it's not, but there is some crab inside. The dish didn't taste like real fresh seafood. The cost was $18.95, a little steep for the quality. Also, it didn't even come with a salad.... More

Great food, great staff, great music. Well worth getting off the I-10 for lunch. We had the fried catfish and the crawfish enchiladas. Awesome! And a small cup of seafood gumbo to share as a starter.

Fantastic restaurant. The best grilled shrimp and pasta in wine sauce I have ever eaten. Fantastic shrimp and crab gumbo. Wine had very ample pour. Great service, fantastic atmosphere. A great experience. We highly recommend this restaurant.

Had lunch here with a colleague. He had a bowl of gumbo...which was large and tasty. I had the red beans and catfish special. The red beans were nicely cooked, rich flavor with sausage. The catfish was perfectly fried...not over done, with a lite coating. I liked this place so much I returned for dinner.

We are fans of George Rodigue who is known for the Blue Dog on each of his paintings. The walls of this cafe are filled with the Blue Dog art, even the rest rooms! The lunch menu was great, Cajun cooking at its best! Casual, great service, and moderately priced! For lunch get there early, 11:00 AM. We arrived at... More

I was there for a business dinner. Food and service was the best of the week working South Louisiana. We ate cajin food for lunch and dinner for 4 days.

The most amazing fresh seafood for a Sunday brunch. A true seafood omelet bar with seafood benedict. Plus the entire regular American breakfast selection. And while enjoying the food you can hear and see a Cajun band playing for your entertainment.
