we went with our extended family a few years ago and had a blast! I don't remember anyone having a bad meal, mom had the Jambalaya and it was tasty, I had the veg option- portobello mushroom and couscous it was delish, and DH had the NY strip steak and he like his quite a lot! I know no one was disappointed, and of all the fam's entrees I tasted, I did like my veg dish the best we are not dessert eaters so I won't be much help there, but if I were anything pirate themed would definitely sound good to me, lol. You are going to love it!

You must have the cajun inspired starter salad (comes with your entree) as it was fabulous. I had the jambalaya which was really good (med. heat) but way to big of a serving. Because we went for dinner, the rest of my table had the surf and turf, which I don't see on the lunch menu. However, if the lunch steak is anything like the one included in the surf and turf, I would recommend steak! I had a wee bite of DH's and it melted in my mouth...so good!
We didn't have any room for dessert. but I'll bet it is great!
Never had a bad meal there. The chefs work well with my food allergy. Sometimes the waiters are really rushed and it's hard to get refills and such, but, let's face it, you don't really go for the food or service. You go for the atmosphere. See if you can get a table by the water!
The menu says it was updated this month, so it looks pretty accurate. Prices are always higher than we expect - that's why I haven't been to BB in many many years. The atmosphere is TOTALLY worth it, if you don't think the prices will bring down the experience for you. And I've heard good things about the food, but if you think you're only going to order the Monte Cristo, and the prices do pinch you a bit, then consider Cafe Orleans, where you can get the sandwiches cheaper. CO also has an awesome French Onion Soup and I've heard really good things about their beignets....
We are definitely going for the ambiance! DD has been eyeing it up every time we go on Pirates and I have to admit I always wanted to go there as a child. Isn't that part of the appeal about bringing kids to DL, we get to re-live our childhood or live out childhood dreams in this case ;-) We are going right when it opens in the hope of a water side table. Now I'll just have to pick what to order...
UPDATE: About 3 hours before we were supposed to go to the Blue Bayou, DD starts saying she really wants to go to Goofy's kitchen for dinner instead. She was adamant and since she is 5, I felt like we can go to BB when she's older and can appreciate it more. So, alas I have no report about the lunch! I was actually relieved because I think for the value, not quality of course, that Goofy's is better for now. We had a fun dinner there. Anyway, I called and cancelled our PS so maybe that opened up a table for someone going at the last minute ;-)
I just checked out the menu. That's a little pricey for my taste. I hope you enjoy it. The view sounds lovely.
Dinner at Napa Rose is $45 for the most expensive meal plus drinks and tips. Steakhouse 55 is about $40 tops for a reasonable dinner with shared side dishes. Compare that to the Blue Bayou and I rather do Napa Rose where they spoil you rotten. I got a booth that overlooked the creek and DCA. They made me gluten free bread, brought Mom chocolates, and spoiled us.
To me the Blue Bayou used to be a bit expensive but was a special trip with atmosphere and good food. I can get an all you care to eat rib and chicken dinner with dessert and drink and a 30% tip for less than just the Blue Bayou chicken dinner.
Mom calls to check on me and reminded me to pay the gardener. I love her so much.
Disneyland was fun with flag retreat and pickles. I have a home here, thank you. GAC is NOT a "front of the line pass".
She is gone but keeping signature. Laundry is getting done. My purpose in life is to help poor people in FL. Farewell, will miss you.
