We took a chance on this place. The night before we went, our friends waited 2 hours and were never served food. Our experience was a bit better with decent food and nice portions.

If you like beer here's hoping you like only one type which is a New Orleans brew that wasn't so good in our opinion. They were not very busy but still took names and made you wait up to 30 minutes with open table very visible. Maybe to give the cooks time to catch up? If you are a fan... More

We visited Blue Orleans during a brief trip to Chattanooga. We absolutely loved our time here. The food was absolutely phenomenal!!!! Our waitress was friendly, helpful, and all around great. The restaurant is set up to give each table a fairly private area to enjoy. Great cocktails!

Blue Orleans is without a doubt the best Cajun food I've ever had! The food is absolutely spectacular, and that is no exaggeration. It's truly authentic in every aspect. The menu items, the flavor profiles, even the ambience is everything you could want! This is a must have for anyone in the Chattanooga area. It's a crime this place isn't... More

Blue Orleans was nothing short of amazing!!!! The food was outstanding. Highly recommend the spicy crawfish pasta. It definitely has a kick but oh so good. The sauce is a sweet heat. Do not miss out. The shrimp and grits was awesome! Recommend it too. There were 4 adults and 3 children in our group. Everyone was fully satisfied. Our... More

Was ok. Guess we ordered the wrong thing to get the creole taste. Trio platter fried fish shrimp and oysters ( greasy) Crab cakes mostly bell peppers and very thin. Tabasco grits were very dry. Grilled shrimp salad was ok but expected hot grilled shrimp and they were ice cold. Ambience was great, servers were delightful.

My husband and I were very impressed with the food, beverages, and the wonderful service in this restaurant. The shrimp tacos were incredible and the blueberry bread pudding was great. When we left, our waitress hugged me. This is a great restaurant with real NOLA food.

We came for a nice dessert while staying at the Choo Choo. My wife and two kids (boys age 6 and 3) and I all loved the beignets. Reminded us of Cafe du Monde in New Orleans but better!

You must try this restaurant. We tried the alligator tail bites as an appetizer...they were delicious! Then we moved on to the Shrimp and Grits with White sauce! Oh my!!
