I was very disappointed in Blue Dogs Sunday Brunch. It use to be great. I took a friend who had not been to the brunch before and I was sorry I chose this place. The soup and gumbo are very good, but that’s about it....More

I will admit I didn't expect much and was pleasently surprised. The crab cakes were very good and the steak was much better than average. The service was also very good.

Everything from appetizer to desserts were excellent. The service was good and the staff was friendly. Blackened Shrimp and Catfish had our taste buds dancing. The crabmeat Au Gratin; was rich with flavor. We will be back and hopefully for the Sunday Brunch Buffet.

My lunch of crawfish enchiladas was absolutely wonderful. The atmosphere with all of the blue artwork kept you busy checking out the interior of the restaurant. It was fun in addition to yummy!
