“I enjoyed my delicious ’Oscar’ - tender crab was my first bite, scooped next with tasty steak and Cajun potatoes. The scrambled eggs and sautéed scallions and shallots created another level to the dish that was very balancing to the palette. I am ready to go back again now!”
“Enjoyed a fantastic Mother’s Day lunch. We started with the fried okra (big enough portion for 3/4), the hush puppies (crispy outside and creamy tender inside), and frog legs (I could have made a meal on those). Moved on to hearty portions of gumbo and jambalaya. Everything was spiced perfectly and delicious. Wish we had saved room for beignets, I am told they are authentic. Overall, great experience. Definitely will be back next time we are in town.”
“Went to bayou for my birthday last night! I ordered the steak and my boyfriend got the fried chicken po boy! We love bayou and under $50 for amazing dinner AND two drinks we will definitely be back soon.”
“A great experience of New Orleans Louisiana cuisine without going to the south. I highly recommend it!“
“As a regular at Bayou I love this place. Food is spicy and filling so we always leave feeling a bit indulged. The Bayou Mule is a must! Staff are attentive and accommodating and cater to the way we love to eat - crammed into a booth family style eating off each others plates. I always bring my grandchildren and they are routinely entertained with paper and crayons. Thank you for making this my favorite place to eat!”
