I'm from Lousiana and know cajun food. This is not it. Overpriced, the owners wife is horribly rude, service is slow and food came out cold. Won't be back. Ever.

The food was excellent. The service was great. The gumbo was just like what I have had in New Orleans. The menu has so many choices it was hard to pick. I did have a cocktail which was ok so I would skip the cocktail and have something else to drink.

My wife and I had dinner at your place this past Wed. evening. 11-16 We just want to let you know it is one of the "best" dining experiences we've had in the 20 yrs of living in this area. We live up near Cleveland and don't get down to Chatt. often enough, especially the downtown area. But we wanted... More

We saw this restaurant today and decided to give it a try at dinner. Fried gator tail for an appetizer was perfectly seasoned and the sauce had just the right spice. The seafood trio is a large platter that you will probably need to take some with you. The New Orleans sampler was fantastic. If you like Cajun you will... More

My husband and I search out Cajun /Creole restaurants whenever we travel. This one is by far the most authentic that we have found outside of Louisiana. The couple that owns the Blue Orleans have done an excellent job. The food and atmosphere both made us feel like we were in the middle of the French Quarter. The staff was... More

We took a chance on this place. The night before we went, our friends waited 2 hours and were never served food. Our experience was a bit better with decent food and nice portions.

If you like beer here's hoping you like only one type which is a New Orleans brew that wasn't so good in our opinion. They were not very busy but still took names and made you wait up to 30 minutes with open table very visible. Maybe to give the cooks time to catch up? If you are a fan... More

We visited Blue Orleans during a brief trip to Chattanooga. We absolutely loved our time here. The food was absolutely phenomenal!!!! Our waitress was friendly, helpful, and all around great. The restaurant is set up to give each table a fairly private area to enjoy. Great cocktails!
