“Luv the Dawg!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

Love this place, have been many times and it never disappoints. It's not the best place for little kids, but that is ok by me because sometimes you just don't want to be around little kids (and I know, I have my own!!). Not that it is kid un-friendly or anything, it's just that it is more of an adult scene and kids do not often like the cuisine. Boo Hoo! A-hem, anyway, yes the Yard Dog has awesome cajun food. The friend chicken is outstanding. The side dishes - all the veggies - are spot-on and wonderful. This is the real deal. Great home cooking with a bit of sass.

“Love This Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

We have dined here many times and the food is always really good. Service is also good. If you are looking for a dive bar with great food then this is your place. Everything is made to order so it may take some time to get your meal but you won't regret it. My wife loves the fried chicken and thinks it may be the best she has ever had. But remember that it is made to order so it takes a bit longer than other dishes. You would expect that with such great food that the prices would be expensive but they are very reasonable if not down right cheap for the quality you get. Don't miss this place.

“Always Special”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

Our go to place when we want a great meal at a good price, and service that makes you feel at home. It's a small place that cares about what you get served. And what you get served is always special. Never had a problem with anything on their menu. Don't miss what might be the best fried chicken in this town or any other place near by. And if their fresh catch is trout, you'd better try it, or you're missing out.

“Good Food, Good Service, Good Value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

The food is outstanding!! Its a small place and it can be hard to get into during peak times, but the wait is worth it. The chef is a genius!!! My only complaint would be the lack of beignets (they simply don't have room for the fryer in the kitchen according to the owner)
