Lunch was ok. Other than having something with some sort of seafood, there was only one thing available to try. Husband had a dish with alligator in it. He enjoyed it even thou there wasn't much in it.

We chose Blue's Bayou Cafe based on the Trip Advisor reviews and some friends' suggestions. While the place is truly funky with an exceptional view of the bay we found the food just alright. I started with the crab cakes which were certainly fresh but...More
