Seafood wontons, crab au graten, corn macque choux, dirty rice, Santillo Caesar salad (Caesar salad with fried shrimp and oysters AND a crab cake), bread pudding, good wine, good company, great service....all watched over by dozens of blue dogs. Pretty awesome. Nuff said.

Not what we expected for Cajun food. Service was good but the food was just ok. Would not go back there. The gumbo was incredibly salty. Ordered the crab plate which was alot of food but mostly overcooked. Not worth the $25 price tag.

My husband is not too keen on Sunday Brunch always assuming he'll eat too much & I am the opposite, not eating much, but I had heard of the reviews and we had to go. There isn't a huge display of food, but what's there is really special including some of the favorites on the regular menu and there's live music to go along with that. The mimosas are included with your meal, but I really thought it was just o.j. (sorry guys). The Blue Dog art work has to make you smile just to gaze around every wall in the house. The waiters were attentive and the servers have it going on, knowing how to feed a crowd that lines up at the door before Sunday opening. We will definitely be back, this is a keeper. ....and oh, about the eating, we both ate everything, without regrets, delich!

the "hostess" told me they ONLY take reservations a few days ahead of time... I guess they are so "busy" in August that they don't need additional business... oh well, there are plenty restaurants in Lafayette to take your business!
