The food was delicious, especially the crayfish enchiladas. I even bought extra to take home to Massachusetts in an ice chest! The atmosphere, surrounded by Rodrigues Blue Dog paintings, is really nice.

Try the soups! love the music and decor. Open for late night. Brunch starts at 10:30 and we heard that was fabulous. A little heavy on the fried food but we really enjoyed overall.

Great atmosphere, good food. I went in with high expectations. Maybe just caught them on a bad night because the food did not wow me.

This place is great! Delicious Cajun food, great drinks, and fully decorated in the famous Rodriguez Blue Dog theme, you definitely need to check this place out! Sunday Brunch is an absolute must!

While I have not overwhelmingly impressed by the weekday menu, the Sunday Brunch should not be missed. They have traditional brunch items, such as made to order omelets and fresh waffles, as well as Cajun favorites like crawfish enchiladas and crab cakes benedict. Everything is fresh and tastes wonderful. It can get crowded, so I would suggest making reservations days... More

We went on a Monday night, expecting great things, but were disappointed by the stodgy and unimaginatively deep-fried food. Service was prompt and friendly, but the fried crawfish tasted like the crab which tasted like the battered fries. Perhaps the oil in the deep-fryer needed changing? The bisque, however, was wonderful; but it wasn't enough to make me go there... More

Went to eat here while in town and great food! Loved the "Louisiana Purchase" and our group had a nice dinner.
