This is a nice bar & grill to catch a good sports game on the big screen or down a few suds with some pretty good food. The zydeco wings with the sweet heat is the best, the bacon wrap shrimp is a good go as well. Nice place to hang out on a evening with no where to go.... More

I took my Dad to Bayou because he wanted oysters. The staff and service was pretty good. We were seated within a few minutes for a busy Saturday. To start, my Dad ordered the red beans and rice, it was ok. I ordered the shrimp and crawfish bisque. The bisque was tasty but not thick enough. Both could have been... More

Came here with friends on a Wednesday evening and had been the only guests when arriving...makes one a bit uncomfortable about the choice of restaurant...but there was no reason to worry...they had Abita Amber (always a plus) and the food we had was great. Only thing i would criticize is the lack of atmosphere...if one wouldn't know otherwise u would... More

Friends and I got to Bayou at 12:10 on a Sunday afternoon. We were told the wait would be an hour. We waited. And waited some more. SIX tables quickly cleared in the front part of the restaurant. They were bussed and cleaned and sat empty for over OVER 20 MINUTES. The staff was frantically running around. No one was... More

We ate there before going to see the play "Mama Mia," I had red beans and rice and my wife had stuffed shrimp. Both were very good, the waiter was good also. They have a large varity of local and other craft beers. Will eat there again.

We weren't real hungry so we opted for the sampler of the soups. Wow they were all great! We had the crawfish Mac and cheese and it was good too!

My wife and I went to Bayou Bar & Grill for dinner on Friday. We were greeted quickly and seated promptly. Our waitress was very good. We started with oysters on the half shell as an appetizer. They were pretty good. I had a zydeco salad with honey mustard dressing. It was very good. I had andouille sausage and boiled... More

If you like spicy Louisiana style fixing, this is a great place to eat. Lunch or dinner are both excellent options. They serve other, milder foods as well, but they do spicy really good!

Just experienced some very poor customer service by the bartender today. My husband and I walked in and sat at the bar. The bartender, who is doing nothing as we walked in, looks us in our faces and doesn't speak or acknowledge us. He proceeds to throw menus in our direction, turns and walks away. We will not stay where... More
