This out-of-the-way, quaint restaurant on Brentwood Bay gets a "Gold Medal" from me. Ambience and food are both first-class. What better way to spend a warm, summer's evening, than having dinner on verandah that is situated on stilts driven into the waters on the shoreline....More

Lunch was ok. Other than having something with some sort of seafood, there was only one thing available to try. Husband had a dish with alligator in it. He enjoyed it even thou there wasn't much in it.

We chose Blue's Bayou Cafe based on the Trip Advisor reviews and some friends' suggestions. While the place is truly funky with an exceptional view of the bay we found the food just alright. I started with the crab cakes which were certainly fresh but...More

My wife and I have been here for lunch before and enjoyed it. We returned last night for dinner and were quite disappointed. We had their crabcakes, jambalaya, and phyllo wrapped chicken. All of it was pretty forgettable. The crabcakes were tasteless as was the...More
