“This Place is Great”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

This food at the Blue Dog is wonderful. We had some of the best catfish ever. The corn and crayfish bisque was smooth and full of flavor. Do not pass up the homemade bread pudding. Really, do not pass that stuff up.

“Just excellent”
Reviewed May 4, 2013 via mobile

This was our second trip to the blue dog and the food was excellent. We had the grilled catfish and crawfish étouffée. I don't think We have ever had better fish. Staff and service were great.

“You gotta go here!!!”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

It was hard to get into this place as there are lines unless you have reservations. We did get in and it was really worth it. The soups are to die for, I had the shrimp bisque and went back for seconds. There is something for everyone at this buffet, unusual compare to your standard buffet in the variety they had to choose from.

“Great Brunch in Lafayette”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

Sunday brunch at the Blue Dog is a real winner. Excellent Cajun buffet. Every dish we tried was well seasoned and very tasty. Nothing real original, just good down-home Cajun fare. We skipped the omelet and roast beef line. You can get that stuff anywhere. A mimosa and coffee were included in the very reasonable price.

As noted in other reviews, service is excellent.

The only drawbacks were the lines for food which were occasionally quite long.
