Brunch on the Bayou

This is a wonderful place to have Sunday brunch on the Bayou. The atmosphere cannot be beat. There is a 3 piece jazz band and it makes for a perfect Sunday Brunch. Food is excellent.

We have been traveling all over the US for the past 8 weeks, and this was the best meal on our trip. The service was excellent, too! We had an appetizer of fried green tomatoes and shrimp. Then we had shrimp in a tasso sauce with a fried grit. Yikes! Delicious!

The food is great with a nice atmosphere. I do like the walk to the bayou behind the building. Your meal will be a little high, but the experience is worth it at least once.

Great food great and atmosphere located on scenic Bayou Bonfouca. You won't be disappointed. Nice patio dining too and they have live music now. Grab a cocktail and take a stroll on the boardwalk while your food is prepared. Your lady will love it

I love the diverse menu here. Sitting on the deck is so pleasant. The wait staff are great. This is a fun Brunch place too. I haven't had a bad meal or negative dining experience here ever.

The atmosphere inside and outside is so beautiful and welcoming, this was a top-notch date spot. The food was great and the staff worked with my husband to surprise me at our table by coordinating a special gift delivery with our dessert course. It was truly enchanting.

If the weather permits, eat on the deck. We enjoyed the view and watching the boats. Boat access with a nice pier to tie up to. Looked like a great place for wedding dinners and groups. We had great food and the service was excellent.

Last year the food and atmosphere was picture perfect. This year everything was wrong. The outside table looked more like a picnic table than a fine dining restaurant. We started with gumbo soup and it wasn't as good as you could get in a can. Also, it wasn't even hot. For entrees, we both had drum fish prepared two different... More

Visited for lunch. This place is beautiful and the food is delicious, but what made the experience for us was the lovely waitress who gave us lots of tips for places to visit in the area. It's actually a lot fancier inside than you'd expect (but decent prices), so if you get a chance to visit for dinner vs lunch... More

The restaurant is located across from the boat launch at Heritage Park and offers a variety of different dishes. My wife likes the white tablecloth tables. The food is excellent.
