We returned to the Cajun Yard dog recently. We found the service and food much improved since our last visit about which I wrote a less than favorable review so i want to give an update. Based on our recent visit, we will resume dining at the Cajun Yard Dog and recommend it to others as seems to have returned... More

We have eaten here several times when we come to Charlotte. The fried chicken is extraordinary. The mac and cheese is a winner as is the jambalaya. Don't miss dessert. We recommend bread pudding

We have frequented Cajun Yard Dog for at least 15 years. If you are in a hurry plan ahead, this is a popular place. Tonight's visit: I ordered the Chicken Cordon Blue and my husband had the Chicken and Seafood Jambalaya. I asked if he wanted a taste of my Chicken Cordon Blue. He agreed it was divine. He loved...

This place is small & you might have to wait for a seat but you can always order to go. Food is good, has a New Orleans feel and all the regular New Orleans food you might want to find. Portions are large, pricing is reasonable.

I had the bbq shrimp and it was delicious. Grits were phenomenal and the fries were normal fries. We had calamari for an appetizer and it was great as well. I highly recommend the Dog!

Shrimp & grits, ones of my favorite Cajun dishes. Usually lacking true flavor in restaurants in North Carolina but here it was a delightful tasty meal with good sized shrimp. My side was ok but didn't earn bragging points in my book. I couldn't resist giving the Bananas Foster a try, so glad because it too was a pleasure. Staff... More

I've always wanted to try this place and we got our chance one Friday evening. The wait was not bad. You have to sign in with the number of guest and there is a nice little corner seat while you wait for a table. Our waitress was very pleasant and the food we ordered did not take long to arrive....

Visited for lunch. Service was great. Food was good. Great selection of local and Cajun selections. Try the dog sauce...it works great with everything. The place is fantastic. A real local gem. We will definitely come back when we are in town.

I've been to the Yard Dog for years and it never disappoints! Small dining area and bar and they don't take reservations. So when you come don't be in a hurry, just grab a Old Mecklenburg Copper beer on tap and relax! Gumbo, Oysters, Shrimp, Catfish, and Collard Greens. Whatever you want it will be great!
