“Best Sunday brunch in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

At around $25 a head, its not cheap, but after you sip your complimentary mimosas and enjoy a bowl of the corn and crap bisque, then finish with bread pudding after you've sated yourself on prime rib, crab cakes and eggs benedict, you will agree its money well spent!

“As long as you like paintings of blue dogs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013 via mobile

Great food and live music. Place was packed on a Friday night. Had the half and half -- fried crawfish and crawfish etouffee -- excellent. Bread pudding was also excellent. We would have waited w/o reservations.

“good food and ambience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

Try the sugar cane vinaigrette dressing - it was unique and tasty. Overall a great experience - good food and fun atmosphere. The $1.50 draft beer was a plus as well!

“Yummie!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

Cajun food done right. We celebrated with having tickets to see Kevin Costner and Modern West. The food was delicious and just the right amount of spice!

“Good for Sunday Jazz Brunch”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

I would not compare this to the dining experience of Jazz brunch in NOLA but still fun. The music was great and the food was good as far as buffet goes. Lots of traditional Cajun and Louisiana- style cuisine but again I have had much better in NOLA. Why should you go? The ART! See many original Blue Dog paintings, listen to some great music, and stuff yourself silly. Mimosas were included in the price of the brunch but the bartender failed to tell us this and charged us as we waited for a table at the bar.
