Is Blue Bayou worth the money? Have always wanted to eat there. I am planning a trip in June and I wanted to eat there for my DD's 13th bday dinner. My girls would absolutely love watching the boats pass from POTC. It isjust so expensive and I am wondering if the food is worth the price. I know atmosphere is a lot of it.

For me, it's more about the atmosphere. Last time we were there, the service was really lacking (May 2010). The food is good, but I wouldn't call it excellent. Still, it is an experience and if it's something you've always wanted to do, then try it! Be sure you book ADR and state that you prefer a table by the water. They won't guarantee it, but your preference will be noted. Remind them when you check in as well. Personally, our family has given up a table to wait for the next available by the water. It's well worth it.
I like the atmosphere of the Blue Bayou. However, to me, the food is just so-so. Only the tables next to the railing can see the boats as they pass by. So, unless you get lucky, you may have a bit of a wait. For the money, I prefer Carthy Circle in California Adventure. There is more variety of food, and the open kitchen is pretty cool to watch.
