Stopped in after work for a good meal with coworker Excellent service and the duck was great. The Gumbo is well known for and doesn't disappoint
Kind of place to put on the "must do"

We really enjoyed finding Blue Dog on our trip through Louisiana. Great Cajun food and atmosphere, I had the half and half (half fried crawfish and half etouffee) Wish I had more of the etouffee, the fried was a little heavily battered. Overall a great find and loved looking at all of the art on the walls of the Blue Dog!

A fantastic choice! So glad we went. The outside makes it look a bit cheesy, but everything about it once you stepped through the doors was great. The service, the food, and the prices. Wouldn't change a thing. Our group had a variety of items and everything was fantastic. True authentic southern food -- fresh and flavorful. Don't skip it.

We had a great meal at the Blue Dog Cafe and enjoyed some good cajun music. The walls are filled with the artwork of George Rodrigue and are worth seeing. This restaurant is a great place to stop anytime while in Lafayette!

Sometimes you have great expectations of highly rated restaurants on TA but end up being disappointed. This was definitely the case at the Blue Dog.
It was a weekday night, no live music and the place was not busy. Never the less, we were rushed through our meal at a pace which I have never encountered before. One was enjoying the appetiser when the main course arrived after a few minutes. They were very keen to whisk your plate away even when we have not finished.
My wife quickly enjoyed the crabmeat au gratin but even at normal speed, I would not have enjoyed the crab dinner. Most of the items were deep fried in layers of batter and it comes with three starches. No friend of the digestive tract.
If you are in a hurry, order a small drink, leave the engine running and you might be o.k.
