We staid in the area of the BLUE DOG CAFE after the LSU / AM football game. Had seen it before but not stopped in. A friend turned us on to it and said we HAD TO STOP IN. SO after the game we did... full house 1 hour plus wait. We opted to make a reservation for the Sunday Brunch for 10:30 AM. We were standing in line with ~40 others waiting for the doors to open at 10:25! Must be good... 40 folks waiting to get in! Well it was. They had all kinds of great food. Not even sure what it all was. Carved Beef, omelets, fruit and salads YES they had all that. But other dishes, most of which the guy can not even remember what they were but ... FANTASTIC! Well worth the wait. Will go there again if I am near by!

We had a wonderful dinner with great live zydeco music last night! This was our first visit to the Blue Dog & we loved it! We tried the seafood wontons & the stuffed mushrooms which were both delicious! The stuffed flounder was great but I absolutely loved the treasures of the bayou bisque!

Of course we loved the art, too! We have seen Rodrigue's work before but this was the best setting! His vibrant colors add so much life to the ambiance!

We will definitely recommend the Blue Dog & hopefully visit again soon!

If you're in Lafayette, definitely make it a priority to eat here. Such a great atmosphere and the food was incredible. I had the Louisiana Purchase (pasta) and it was amazing!! Even the salad and rolls were awesome!

Took a tip and went there for dinner. Had the seafood wontons followed by the crawfish enchiladas. All i can say is..Wow. A great meal for a very reasonable price. Sat at the bar, had great conversation with people i have never met. I will most definitely return again when i am back in town.

We ate here with a large group of friends. They were great about taking care of all of us and getting our food out all together. I had the Whiskey Bay flounder which was excellent. Bread was hot, fresh and served with garlic butter.
