Authentic Cajun food and atmosphere! This is no tourist trap restaurant. Bayou delight is where the locals go for good food and good company. Live music and dance floor. Casual dress. Good people!

Grew up in the area so I was raised on good Cajun Food (thanks Mom!). Unfortunately, I do not now live in the state so my wish on visits to the area is to eat really good Cajun Food. Bayou Delight is very casual, so if you are looking for a fancy dress up restaurant, this ain't the place. If... More

This restaurant has been around for years and probably has never been remodeled. However, they have the best fresh fried chicken in town. Roast beef po-boys are delicious too. I have eaten here at night and at lunch time and have never been disappointed. Never have I heard anyone complain about anything. Food is cooked fresh when you order so... More

Bayou Delight is a quaint restaurant set on Bayou Black. The food is fresh, with daily lunch specials as well as a full menu. The fried chicken is delicious! Prices are extremely reasonable. Dress is casual.

What a wonderful restaurant with Cajun flair. Food is delicious...seafood platter serves more than one person, possibly three. Cajun music is wonderful to hear.

The food is cooked to order with daily specials. Great for tourist, the working man, or a Sunday outing with the family.

In Louisiana on a trip and hoping for good seafood. . . Did NOT get it here. Catfish had no taste; burger was like the preformed patties sold at Sam's. Service was friendly but not very attentive. Onion rings were the only thing we liked.

Came early and had Boudan balls while waiting, then shared the big chicken dinner when we returned. It was all well prepared, chicken crunchy and not oily! Service was was a bit slow early, but a relaxed and comfortable place!

The food was ok. Fried food- not too many healthy options. Good place to go after a swamp tour or on a Sunday drive. Restaurant is clean and kid friendly. Service was great!

Saw lots of reviews raving about the fried chicken, so decided to go try it. It is good, but I don't think it is as good as has been written about it. The Acadiana Potato was really good, as was the roast beef poboy. Service was good and value was excellent.
