    I agree.

    ""The DO offer the Monte Cristo at both lunch and dinner. You just have to know to ask for it.

    Unless things have changed in the last 5 weeks.""

    Sorry, bad information. The Monte Cristo is only available on the lunch menu, i.e., before 4:00.

    Re: How is the food at Blue Bayou?

    Well, I have mixed feelings about The Blue Bayou. I love the atmosphere, but more often than not, I'm not thrilled with the food. My only problem is that is is usually too salty. Now, before the flaming arrows come my way,let me just say this. The last time we ate there, I ordered the Salmon , and Boyfriend order the Pepper Rubbed roast. We both were so over salted, that we had stomach aches. Like almost instantly. We had to return the food, and get new orders. But, the thing is, it had happened to us 3 times in about a 2 month time. So, we no longer eat there. Now, if we could just order coffee, rolls and salad, that would be fine. So, my suggestion is to go once for the experience, but know that there are other restaurants that serve amazing food for the price. We loved the dinner package at the Wine Country Trattoria. The food was excellent!!

    The food is decent, and much better than the fast food options in the park. You're paying for the ambiance.
    I've never been able to get a "seaside" table. Should I request one upon making the reservation with Disney Dining? When I check in at the counter at my reservation time?

    Show up about 10 minutes early on your scheduled reservation time and request and waterside table. Depending on the amount of people there you'll wait about 20 minutes or more. The last time I went they seated me about 15 minutes after we requested a table by the water.

    It was worth the wait IMO, plus I was very hungry. Our waitress was sweet and I ended up over tipping her lol.

    Bob - EXCELLENT comparison.......... The Marine Room in La Jolla is far beyond ANYTHING Disney would offer - an excellent restaurant.... and FAR more upscale than ANYTHING offerred at the DLR

    THAT being said - BB is an "experience" to be w/in the POTC...... The food is good, not great, Club 33 is actually a value.......

    But if all you want is gumbo and Monte Cristos........ Cafe Orleans is the option. I had the frites and Gumbo crepe last week and it was delicious! Mind you, by Disney stanndards, we have an $8.00 Cheeseburger, etc.....

    To sit down and eat, BB is a value, just not as much as some would suggest, for the Monte Cristo or Gumbo, hit the Cafe Orleans instead........

    Re: How is the food at Blue Bayou?

    atmosphere is great! especially if you're out with your girlfriend. always request the table near the water. it's very peaceful and the skylights above are just perfect. The food is mediocre. I must be honest.
