This is one of my favorite restaurants in Lafayette. Place can get really busy on weekends if you can make reservations. A little on the pricer side but well worth it. Never had anything here I didn't like. Service has always been great. If you looking for a great seafood restaurant this place should definitely be on your list.

Love going to the Blue Dog for lunch or dinner. It is always a treat. If someone is new in town, it is a great place to show the cuisine in this area. Always a hit. And all of the George Rodrigue paintings.

Average ambiance, good food. I wouldn't say I'll recommend the Blue dog, but I wouldn't we had a bad experience either... It was just average. Gumbo was really good and the staff was friendly.

I've been to Blue Dog many times and have always enjoyed my experience their. The staff is well trained, friendly, and welcoming. The food is always cooked and seasoned well, and the large paintings are always enjoyable to look at.

Being an excellent Lafayette restaurant is not a complement to be taken lightly. Lafayette is well known for the quality of its restaurants and the food its restaurants provide. For me, Blue Dog has repeatedly provided outstanding meals for business related lunches. Try the tuna and don't shy from any of its Cajun entrees.

The food was excellent. My husband has 1/2 fried crawfish and 1/2 crawfish étouffée. We loved it. I had chicken with crab sauce and it was delicious.
