My parents and I were traveling through Louisiana on the way home to Florida and decided to stop for the night in Lafayette. I found this place on Trip Advisor and we were thoroughly impressed with the service, the food, and the wait time. The atmosphere is pretty cool too. We had seafood stuffed mushrooms, crawfish alfredo, crawfish ettoufe, and... More

We are familiar with the blue dog art following and this attracted us to this venue. Very good local food. A number of large groups were about creating for a noisy vibe - cafe style rather than intimate dining and live music as well.

This was our first stop. The corn and crab bisque was awesome. And I don't normally like seafood! I ate every drop. The restaurant's walls are covered with George Rodrigues blue dog paintings.

I was there with a group of 8. 3 of us were horribly sick all night and starting about 45 to an hour after we left the restaurant. Have never gone back and don't intend to .

We went to Blue Dog at the end of a long, hard business week. Restaurant is decorated for Mardi Gras and very festive. Waiter was very attentive and dinner started off great. All of us ordered. I ordered the Ribeye...Medium Rare. Discussed what that meant to ensure I was on the same page as the Blue Dog with cooking steaks.... More

Cracking little bar where we just hung out and drank beer. Lots of it. Bar staff were good fun, nice chilled attitude and a good selection of cold beers.

First time to visit Blue Dog, went for the Sunday Buffet Brunch (10:30-2:00) that includes bottomless mimosas, and live local music (11:00-2:00). Greeted and seated promptly, sat solo at the bar, pleasant atmosphere, very large place. One of the best brunch buffets ever; prime rib, made-to-order omelets, a wide variety of Cajun and creole options all prepared fresh in-house, tasty... More
