Forget this place if you want to feel welcome. Older bartender with limp and short hair on Wednesday night is rude and unwelcoming, Our wings took forever and were overpriced and not well done like I wanted, place is filthy including the men's room.

I ate here before and wrote a review here on Trip Advisor. The owner Joe reached out to me and mailed me a $25 gift certificate. I really wish I was writing a good review. Here is our experience.

If you like frozen burger patties and chicken breast (probably purchased in bulk at Costco), this is the place for you! I've had better meals at a hospital cafeteria!

As we were eating the waitress didn't... More

If you ignore The dirty bathrooms and the cantankerous staff, especially the bartender, then perhaps you would enjoy The moderately priced beer specials and lunch specials as well.

I always head to the Bayou when I am in Manayunk. Pitt takes care of the folks at the bar like they were family.
