Cool Blue Dog art. Best tuna around. We used to come here when it was Che Pastor. Excellent food . Great service. Unique Cajun food. Smoked Duck quesadillas are to die for. Seafood platter way to much for one person. Make sure to get the Dirty Dog Rice.

The overall food was good but a bit pricy. I had the shrimp jambalaya and the spices in it were extremely well done. The atmosphere was great with all the blue dog paintings . The best is the sunday brunch, there is every kind of seafood omelet imaginable.

They prepare their dishes with unusual sides and herbs which complement and enhance the flavors in each bite. They also offer a variety menu with unique dishes and protein offerings. This is local to my office, but well worth the visit even if I had to drive a distance to eat here.

I'm a single female and a business owner. I travel a lot (104,000 miles on my 2013 Toyota and then there are the sky miles). I stood at the designated "please wait for hostess to be seated" for at least 5 minutes. No hostess appeared and not a single wait staff acknowledged my presence. So I went up the street... More
