Authentic and homey. If your just looking for a good burger and great service with good music, this is the place. Game room upstairs and pleasant folks downstairs. Great service two days in a row. Thanks Beverly!

The food was good. We ordered lemon pepper wings, the crab claws dipped in a special sauce, and gumbo. We were in town during Octoberfest, so that may have impacted the speed of service. There's a bar and it looks more pub-like inside. There were...More

Dashed into the Bayou Cafe for an early dinner, after cruising the Bacon Festival on River Streeet. The place has more of a "pub" atmosphere than a cafe. We ordered out meal and waited... and waited... and waited. Twenty-seven minutes later, our food arrived. My...More

We ate there for lunch. My wife got the crab cake dinner and I got the "choose 2" combo with crab cake and fried shrimp. While the service wasn't great, (the guy running the place had a million things to do), he was super friendly....More

Don't expect a quiet cafe. It is, unashamedly, a bar with billiards and a live band. The tables are crowded, and the ambiance is BAR. That being said, we really enjoyed our food, the service was personal and friendly. Best fried pickles I've ever eaten....More

I think it would be fine for an earlier dinner. There are TONS of restaurants on the water, though. You can always pop in, look around, and decide to move on to another place fairly easily.
