Closed. probably due to the court verdict. probable could not find insurance to cover the liability. Food, when it was open was OK...some good bands in the evening...but the used to kind of "want you to leave" so the could clear the floor for the bands, mostly latino.

Was there this past weekend & signs on the darkened door say "Thanks and goodbye". Sad to see it go. Since we apparently have to have 100 characters to complete a review, think back fondly on the Bayou's delicious past, and the staff's lighthearted attitude. They seemed to actually enjoy working there! And now it can be told that at... More

Food was terrific. I had the extreme pasta and my husband had the fried chicken. We both loved our meals and the service we received. Not sure if we got lucky or what but this was a fantastic meal.

We went there last year and it was wonderful and have waited all year to go back. We go it and the first think the hostess tells us is there is a new menu. They have taken all the good food off. On top of that - most items have crawfish - and the waitress says they are out of... More

We were referred to The Bayou after inquiring at a local shop where we might find ballroom dancing or karaoke on Saturday night. We stopped in at about six to check it out, and it had somewhat of a sports bar atmosphere with families eating and watching TV. A very friendly server informed us that, beginning at 10:30 pm, the...

The restaurant was less than half full so this was the first indication to me that there was no need for the terribly slow service. Our food took forever, our waitress (Payge) was non existent, and the items that we ordered did not taste anywhere close to or as good as the same items at other Cajun restaurants. The bread... More

This restaurant used to be a favorite stop for my wife and myself while on vacation, we were in Glenwood Springs on vacation last week and as usual we went to the Bayou restaurant for dinner and to say the least we were under-welmed. The menu has changed and not in a good way very limited cajun menu items. we... More

Amazing cajun restaurant--with a children's menu, no less. Walking distance from Hotel Colorado on the downtown strip.

Just changed menu.. Miss some of the old favs but have a lot of new great additions! Our group enjoyed the fried chicken, wild boar pasta, steak and spicy shrimp. Love the casual laid back atmosphere...can have dinner here after a hard day of playing in the Mtns and not feel bad about changing attire. The sangria, which i think... More
