The restaurant is at a great location; right off of 610 and Richmond. The food is great! The crawfish is awesome, medium to large size. The fried catfish filets and boudin balls are our favorite. We usually get the seafood gumbo and the crawfish bisque as well. If you like oysters, the sautéed oysters are very good as well. The... More

We ate here on Inauguration Day and it was such a breath of fresh air compared to the Luling BBQ place we accidentally stumbled into next door. Ambience was comfortable and friendly. Service attentive. Food was an unexpected delight. Shrimp PoBoy is the best in Houston. Crawfish Pasta is scrumptious. Highly recommend Bayou City to feed the stomach and soul... More

We moved 3 years ago and came back for a visit. I'll be dreaming about this gumbo and salad till the next time we make it back. OMG this is the most delicious meal I've had in 3 years of traveling the world.

So my husband and I were originally going to the BBQ spot next door but he drifted into Bayou City instead. Modest decor but awesome staff and a very attentive General Manager. Quick service, food came out in minutes fresh and hot. We got blackened Flounder and blackened Snapper... speechless! Best seafood in Houston by far and I have lived... More

Delicious seafood at reasonable prices. We tried the crab cakes--we could actually taste crab, and fried shrimp. The bread pudding was also delicious.

Love their oysters. Crabcake was good, but not great. Key Lime Pie very good. Plus Natalie the barkeep is very nice and very hot at the same time. A Louisianan with a delicious accent.

Not being familiar with the menu, I asked my server for a recommendation and was not disappointed. I had a 'cup' of soup to start with which was larger than I expected (seemed like a bowl to me, maybe I got an upgrade). My main dish was also very good and they have a small but fairly good selection of... More

We were there last night for an early birthday. The food was incredible. My friends ordered the restaurant week special and I had the pasta Liberty. Within a few minutes the table was loaded with food and it just kept coming out. The portions here are huge and everything was delicious. Very recommended!
