Love the Cajun cuisine and the decor style in the restaurant. On hot days the patio is a great place to sit and enjoy the views.

Wonderful location, nice views of the harbor. Who would have thought that one could get Louisiana style food in Victoria! Nice choices of food. I wouldn't know if the food was really original not being an aficionado of this type of cuisine but I do know it was enjoyable. Well worth a stop. Not inexpensive but worth it.

Awesome food service was fantastic and the view is to die for .Reservations are recommended and if you go on a Saturday evening you see the fireworks from Butchard Gardens

Had a lovely late lunch. Food was great and nice location over the water. Open all afternoon in the summer regardless of the web site hours which are winter ones.

I had lunch here with my dad and daughter, we had wraps with salad and it all tasted good, i added some hot sauce to mine! Dad had the bread pudding for dessert so we all tried some, it was yummy.

Good place, good food but we were surprised that the poboy was beef. Also surprised that there were few fish dishes. Alligator sausage was very tasty and well done. The jambalaya would have been better had they used the alligator sausage or a similarly prepared item in it. Needed more chunks of fish, larger shrimp perhaps.... Nice drive to get... More

What a lovely place to dine overlooking Brentwood Bay. The food and service was exceptional and can recommend it. It was just a short walk down to the Resturant from where I was staying at Brentwood Bay Lighthouse B&B.

We were a party of 3, all ordered something different and we each enjoyed our meals very much. We also had the fried green tomatoes with shrimp and found that very tasty. I had the gumbo and was quite impressed. The Jambalaya was delicious. All 3 meals were very good, but I must say the Amaretto infused chocolate mousse was... More

At 12.30 pm we went for lunch at Blue's Bayou Cafe. We sat outside on their patio with a limited view onto a small marina. The weather was great. We placed our order and our drinks arrived right away. After over ONE hour wait, we still did not have our food. Their cheap plastic patio chairs started to feel very... More
