From the series “52 Places to Visit in 2019”

March 19, 2019 “Another place I loved was A.M. Booth’s Lumberyard, a deceptively gigantic space that includes multiple bars, outdoor patios, music stages and a restored train car from the 1920s that you can have dinner in.”

Dine With Us

Open for lunch, brunch and Dinner service, this unique dining space is sure to take you back in time. We require 4 or more guests to reserve a booth. Walk-ins are welcome but reservations are highly recommended. 

Host a Party to Remember

The Blue Bayou seats 36-40 guests and is a perfect place to dine with your friends or entertain important clients. You can reserve multiple booths for a celebration or reserve the entire car for a memorable intimate rehearsal dinner.
