Visited this place twice; four years and a week ago. Last time for a small family celebration. Loved it both times! The food was exceptional and prices were very decent. You can also get a Prix-fix menu during some of the business day evenings for $20 that include a soup or salad, an entry and a desert. Warm and welcoming... More

What a great place for really delicious Cajun Food. Tuesday nights they usually also have live music. The food is amazing. My favorite are the Mad Clam, the sweet potato fritters, the chicken wings, Steak Louie, Nawlins Chicken, to name a few! Great drinks and atmosphere. Small and intimate, Highly recommend!!! Reservations suggested.

When we visited yesterday, my husband ordered the gator burger and I ordered the skirt steak panini. We also ordered the jambalaya rice balls and everything was perfectly cooked and tasted amazing. This is one of our favorite places to visit.

Feels like I was back on Bourbon street. With its soft lighting and New Orleans motif Bayou makes you feel like you are in the big easy. The list of magnificent appetizers is endless: wonderful flavors, nice size portions and reasonable prices make this a great place to come with family or friends for a fantastic night out. Seafood salad... More

Been coming here for the last few years. My last visit was this last Friday. Bayou NEVER disappoints. The food the drinks the staff are all top rate. Definitely try the Shrimp Remoulade and the Alligator bites. Red beans and rice as well as the chicken gumbo are good too. You could pick any entree and you won't be disappointed.... More

Came for a dinner after a great concert and got an equally delicious dinner. Lamb chops and Gator bites were good but the mini tacos and rice balls were my favorites. The jubalya and pork chops were to die for.. Great place
