While traveling through Lafayette, and having it recommended by a local, we decided to stop at the Blue Dog for lunch. I ordered stuffed shrimp which is my favorite. What a shock! The three shrimp were as thick as a hotdog and only half as long. It had very little stuffing, and I could barely see the shrimp. This meal... More

Blue Dog Cafe was highly recommended.. However it did not come across that way to me. The greeter was extremely rude because I came in 5 minutes before they started seating. She did not even want me to go to the bar, where there where already many people. Finally I was seated next to where the band was setting up... More

We were moving from Texas to Florida and just happened to stay in lafayette for the night. Stumbled upon this place by accident. The parking lot was full so we figured what the heck? Food was excellent. Great menu. Big portions. Great quality. Great service. What more could you ask for?

I broke up a 12-day gastro-vacation to New Orleans a road trip up to Baton Rouge and Lafayette. The tour books and even several culinary tour guides back in Nawlins recommended the Blue Dog Café. I was not disappointed. I tried the grilled shrimp remoulade appetizer, which came with six very tasty large shrimp with sauce on a small salad... More

When on a business trip I invariably visit the Blue Dog. Love the paintings that cover the walls and luv the food even more. Well worth a trip

Went in for dinner, the ribeye was cooked perfect. Service was outstanding. The rolls and garlic butter excellent. Being from Texas I'm used to hospitality, they set an example to be followed by all!! 5 gold Stars.

Tonight we went to Blue Dog Café. It’s always good but tonight was an exception to good. It was nowhere near good….. IT WAS AMAZING!!! This was the best meal I’ve ever had at the Blue Dog Café, and I’ve had many. This was the best meal I can remember. Maybe this was the best meal I’ve ever had in... More

A California gal and a Massachusetts gal walk into a restaurant to find some phenomenal Cajun food. They didn't find it here. Nothing really made us stand up and cheer, although the corn and crab chowder was good. Service was a bit lacking as well. Doubt we will be back....
