All vegetarian special

More Than Just A Meal!

Our next special event dinner will be January 24th, 2019 with a gourmet vegetarian winter feast

- Sign up here for advance ticket information —>

The Blue Bayou serves a family-style multi-course southern infused meal.  With the staff in railroad attire, guests are entertained with multi-media vignettes of railroad history and folklore.  Although this uniquely refurbished 1924 railway car never leaves the Lumberyard, it is truly an immersive experience of music, lights and videography all staged to compliment the evening's destination/bill of fare.
