So/So Food - Awesome Art :) 3/14/2011

Family had dinner here last night on our road-trip from Austin to New Orleans. The restaurant is cute, honestly loved the little dog artwork everywhere. I wish I could say I loved the food as well, but I can't :/ more

Best in Town 5/20/2010

The food at Blue Dog Cafe is exceptional. You will not find a better meal at a reasonable price in Lafayette. They always have great live bands on the weekends, and the drink specials are great especially happy hour, which is like 2-7 or something. If you've never eaten there you're missing out big time. Pros: Great Service, Great Food, Great Atmosphere Cons: Packed on the Weekend Sometimes more

It's just OK 3/3/2009

We LOVE blue dog. In fact we have a few! (Yes, I'm bragging!) I've wanted to stop in Layfayette for years to have a meal at the Blue Dog cafe. Last week, I was finally able to. The food was OK. The service was OK. That's about all I can say for this place. I'm glad I stopped to see this landmark but probably won't be making the trip again any time soon..... Pros: Lot's of BLUE DOGS Cons: Chilly temp in restaurant, average food with slightly slow service more

One of My ""Top 3 Favorites"" in Lafayette 1/16/2009

I just wrote a review for iMonelli and now I am writing one for Blue Dog Cafe. The food here is superb. ALL of their soups are fabulous and atmosphere is so reminiscent of New Orleans. Their Sunday brunch has one of the best spreads I have ever seen on this side of the Mississippi River. I highly recommend this place. Go and see! Pros: You get a New Orleans dining experience without having to drive all the way to New Orleans. Cons: They should serve brunch on New Year's Day. more

The band and the food was superb 2/18/2006

My girlfriend to me to get some drinks with some friends and we decided on the Blue Dog Cafe. I was impressed with the artwork becasue it is everywhere in the restraunt. The Bartenders made some great drinks. The staff was very accomodating by ensuring that we were satisfied. The band which was a trio, played some great music. Acid Jazz on a Saturday night made it special. We ate the Won Ton, Treasures of the sea and the Gumbo was perfect! Pros: food, service, live band more

Get the Seafood Wontons 8/2/2005

I am addicted to the seafood wontons at Blue Dog. The raspberry sauce they are served with make this the best appetizer I've ever eaten. Everything I've eaten there has been wonderful. My favs: Stuffed Shrimp (it come with ""Dirty Dog Rice"" and boy is that stuff good), Catfish Blue Dog (Fried catfish w/etouffe on top), corn & crab bisque, cram meat florintine (it has sooo much cheese). I could go on and on. The menu is extensive and they serve everything like it's there specialty any time of day. The service is always good. If it's a pretty day ask for the patio, it's usually empty or close to empty and the service is just as good out there. The brunch the best I've ever had but make reservations. Management is alway hands on to make sure your dining experience is spectacular. Pros: Excellent Food, Reasonable Prices, Good Selection more

WOW, Excellent Local Cuisine 7/1/2005

It is because of citysearch I even bothered to try this place out. The locals had informed me it was a ""must"" and truly lived up to the hype. The food, ambiance, service all combined for what was a wonderful dinner. The grilled catfish and seafood bisque is to die for, and having little bites of some of the other entrees around me, it would seem almost everything is highly regarded. I encourage anyone passing through Lafeyette, LA to stop by for a bite. Pros: Food, Service, Prices more

A feast for the eyes and the palate 3/9/2005

Blue Dog is such a treat! When you enter the restaurant you get to admire the famous ""Blue Dog"" paintings by Lafayette artist George Rodrigue. Then comes the food which is incredible. The Seafood Wontons are just fabulous, the Sherwood Forest Brie Bisque is probably one of the best things I have EVER eaten at any restaurant and the Crabmeat Florentine and Crawfish Tasso Alfredo are flat out great! The service has always been friendly although the place loses a couple of points for ambience since it can get a bit loud and is not exactly a place for intimate conversation. However, don't let that deter you from going; the food is just too good to miss!! Pros: Seafood wontons, Brie Bisque, Everything else Cons: a bit loud, parking not great more
