Yearly Tradition.

Food was still really good & the service was still really bad!!! We love going there in spite of the bad service & extremely long waiting time to be seated. The food is worth it at least one time every year!

On our last trip to the beach, we went to this restaurant on the advise of some of the other guests at the condo. We found it to be quite good. On this trip, the evening we went, it was jammed and ended going somewhere else. The next day we went to Bayou on the Beach for lunch and were... More

Great food, great prices, great atmosphere. Wife and I sat at the bar and Randell (bartender/oyster shucker) took great care of us. We both had the blackened fish sandwich (only 8.95) it was by far the best i've had on the beach and priced much less than all the others. We also had fried green tomatoes for appetizer and portion... More

Went there twice for oysters 7-15 and 7-18. We had a family of 8. Was seated in less than 3 minutes. Drinks delivered in less than 10 and 5 dozens oysters 10 minutes after that. Cajun fried pickles are good also. Nice little place to eat.

We went for lunch. Had attempted to get in twice before but did not want to wait one hour. Food was highly recommend. Who Dat shrimp was delicious and not too spicy just a kick. The fish sandwich was grilled perfect. Bread bun was homemade. The oysters my husband had (grilled) were a little dry. He said they needed more... More

Recommended by a good friend, and they lived up to the billing! Appetizers were great. Definitely recommend Swamp Cakes and Who Dat Shrimp. Margaritas were outstanding. Shrimp Po Boy was good and wife enjoyed fried oyster basket.

This may not be the nicest, most clean restaurant I've ever been too - but I will absolutely be coming back!! I have eaten a lot of shrimp in my life, but NO ONE beats Bayou's!!!! Their secret seasoning is to DIE FOR!!!
