We recently took visitors from out of state to Blue Dog for supper. They were blown away by the food, and the restaurant as a whole. It turned out to be a great meal, and we will definitely be back!

Real Cajun experience. Food, music and unparalleled service await your visit. Really enjoy the patio dining and the ambiance it exudes. There's no more perfect time than all the time!

It was a great dinning experience. I always like the staff and the band that's playing on Sunday. They have a big selection of food for breakfast, lunch and dinner items all at the same time.

A great way to spend a Sunday morning. We got there early and waited in line until 1030 when they opened. We didn't have reservations but were seated immediately. As busy as it was at opening, the servers did a great job of keeping the drinks full and clearing the tables. The food was wonderful. The crab eggs benedict was... More

We went in Lafayette for a not-so-uplifting family event and a local told us about the Blue Dog Cafe. We didn't know what it was about but went, and as we walked in, we immediately recognized George Rodrigue's Blue Dog paintings. The entire atmosphere of the cafe lifted our spirits. It was freezing that night (rare for LA) and they... More

Dined here with family. 2 words come to mind. Absolutely fantastic. I ordered the chicken Teche which was great. My wife had the chicken salad which she enjoyed also. Great draft beer and awesome service made this restaurant wonderful.

The food was very good overall. The service was not that good. Wait staff was mostly college people and the young lady that waited on us seamed like she was brand new. The décor was very nice. Atmosphere was more like a college town.
