I'm not a fan of Cajun cousin so no need to beat around the bush. Food was just ok! We ordered the: philly cheese steak, fried chicken salad, their house hot wings & fries and all were nothing special. Maybe if we'd tried the alligator...More

I had the bacon wrapped shirmp with zydeco sauce. They were decent. Mashed potatoes were cold and cole slaw was yucky, but otherwise an OK experience.

Recently dined at the Bayou for lunch. Raw oysters, gumbo, and fried oyster basket. We requested a "to go" order and we we told that they were too busy to deal with orders to go. Disappointing.

We were looking for a kicked back place to relax and have some good seafood. We found it here. It was right in the middle of the sweet 16 weekend and Memphis was full of college basketball fans, so it was crowded. Even so, our...More

Bayou is located in Overton Square, a great spot in Memphis for food. We sat outside in beautiful spring weather. True to its name it has a NOLA menu. We ordered fried pickle appetizers. Definitely the best part of our meal. Two of our group...More
