Great food!

If you want authentic Cajun food, this place is it! Their seafood gumbo is amazing! Well, all of their food is great. On Sundays, they offer an amazing variety of dishes for brunch.

6:45 on a Tuesday night. The host sees that I'm alone and immediately tells me there are no tables available - but I could get full menu service at the bar. I started to tell him that I was an alcoholic and that he was enabling me, but I'm not so I didn't. It is frustrating, as a business traveler... More

Met my brother and his family for dinner and drinks. You must try the best Smoked Duck Quesadillas in the entire world! They are actually the BEST in the Universe! Overall, great service and great food. Our new spot when we are in Lafayette.

I am a local and I can tell you that we are a tough crowd to please. Great food with innovative twists, Sunday brunch is an experience in itself.

My wife and I had lunch at the Blue Dog today, in part because a recent visitor received a bad experience there, and we wanted to see if things had gone bad, or if that visitor had a one-time-only experience. The place was packed, and at 11:50, we got the last table available. The service was excellent, even with the... More

Real casual and good Cajun food. Lots of Rodrigue works hanging. Low keyed. Sometimes music is loud but if you like that sit near. Buffet Sunday's are abundant!
