Yes it's small, but it's so worth it! It's great for kids and even better for adults! Some of the staff have been there since it opened! So, don't judge a book by it's cover or you will miss out on some yummy food!!!

I went here with a group of friends and this place is fun and relaxed. I had the crab cakes/mac n cheese and they were mouth watering. My friend had the shrimp/grits and she raved about them. So stop in and try it out.

You may have to wait at the Cajun Yard Dog if you go on a busy night, but everything on the menu is worth the wait. Don't come grumpy and please play nice if you are going to come. Our favorites include the fried green tomatoes, the

Quaint little restaurant that offers tasty homestyle cooking with a cajun twist. Meatloaf, fried chicken, cajun fish, cajun catfish bites, deviled eggs, homemade mac and cheese, and fried green tomatoes-- mmm mmm!!
It's a rather small restaurant, so get there early because it fills up quickly!! And come with an empty stomach because their food is FILLING! The only thing I'd have to tell people to NOT order is the side item of green beans-- they taste like they're straight out of a can. eww.
Not only is the food delicious, but the staff are amazing. The owner is usually behind the bar, and everyone tries to treat me like family every time I go in.
Overall this is a great place for families or for a happy hour with the friends (they have quite an extensivebeer list).

The first thing you notice when you step into this restaurant is all the decor. I love what they've done with this place. It's very informal and you can just seat yourself. The waiters are curteous and the service generally fast.

Love their shrimp creole. It's my favorite. The food is good, it's not the best cajun I've ever had, but it's close to me and good enough. It's great when they have the live band playing. Just a exciting aura about the place. I love it.

Always impressed with the food at Cajun Yard Dog. Lots of authentic choices. Sometimes there's a wait but it usually goes quickly and is well worth it!

Great for a quick bite in a laid back atmosphere. Food can be as spicy as you want to get it! Lots of fried foods, sides are amazing!! Often a wait on weekends but it goes quickly. We love the bread pudding for dessert.

A different kind of place. Was not sure what to expect with a name like it had but truly a great experience with many different selections and nothing that is ordinary.

As someone who has consumed a great many meals in New Orleans and surrounding areas, Cajun Yard Dog is the worst rendition of New Orleans/Louisiana cuisine I have every experienced. Jambalaya was the color of thousand island dressing, not spicy or flavorful. My wife's blackened catfish was water and overcooked, again not at all flavorful. Overpriced, no atmosphere, loud, small, and worst of all flavorless. Don't waste your money.

I've heard lots of good things about CYD, and finally got a chance to check it out myself! What a treat! The homemade chips were a WONDERFUL appetizer, I had the special Black and Blue Crab Pasta and my husband had Shrimp and Grits. All excellent! Don't miss the Bananas Foster for dessert. YUM! Appetizer, 2 dinners, dessert (and leftovers) for $45.

I love eating here. I usually get the oyster po' boy because their oysters are fried nicely, really plump, and juicy on the inside. They also have Red Oak on tap and that's just happiness in a glass. Real friendly service.

My wife and I tried this place and it was great. It has a very intimate environment and delicious food. It was the best fried chicken I have ever had. Our server was knowledgeable and very attentive all night. Best Cajun food I have found in Charlotte.

Very informal environment. In keeping with New Orleans dress sensibilities, expect a T-shirt and shorts kind of place. A lot of their menu options are "blackened". We had the blackened grouper, which was quite good. We also had the shrimp etoufee, which was pretty good too. The white rice seems to be of the bland "instant rice" taste and texture, which is actually authentic if you're looking for the down-home, gas station-and-restaurant feel. Of course, they offer Abita beer. Good, basic food. We'd eat there again.
