Could be better

Went there with a Groupon after hearing from my children who also went with a Groupon about 6 months earlier, that it was really good and food was plentiful. I went last week and my husband and I ordered the exact 2 dishes as my children and weren't impressed. I think it was half the size they... read more

Are in the mood for good cajun food? Then don't go here! I would have happily given The Bayou a higher review but I could not in good conscience do that after they served my friend a burnt waffle. We went one night with a groupon, with high hopes that we had found another cajun restaurant to add to our... More

Great food, great fun. Everything I have ordered, and it is a bunch of different things, has been excellent.

Food, service, mediocre at best. I went last night as I had a groupon for this place and figured I would try it out (I went here 5 years ago and it was very good) Let's start with the Drinks- Hurricane was $11 and it barely had any liquor. It actually made my stomach ache after drinking this. I tried... More

Had been here years ago and remembered liking it so tried it again with a Groupon. What a disappointment! Food was mediocre at best. Terrible value. Overpriced entrees and drinks. You can get at least double the portion size for less money at Big Daddy's in Massapequa with much better quality and tastier food. If I didn't have a Groupon... More

I decided to go to them with my child and enjoy their crawfish. I was utmost satisfied because it was delicious, inexpensive, and easy to order. I am sorry to say that the decor of the restaurant was that of Mardi Gras. But, that's to the personal flavor. The chef was on point and that is all that matters

Used a groupon which brought prices to a reasonable level with only Fair value. Entrees were $25-$30 served with a paper napkin and a plastic tablecloth and undrinkable water. Garlic mashed potato fried fritters were good but 5 for $7.50 was a poor value. The pulled pork pot pie was flavorful but pulled pork was nonexistent. It was burnt on... More

Not a very kid friendly place to eat, only 2 items to choose from. Other than that the food was very good. Service was even better. What we ordered was not very spicy, but beware it could get hot.

I have been to this restaurant many times over the past 20 years. At some point in time it was sold, and it has not been as good. It's still good, but it used to be excellent. The service is still good, the staff & servers are kind and helpful. The food is not as flavorful as it used to... More

We love going to the Bayou!! Have been going for over 20 years. Love the week night and weekend specials. The staff is great and friendly. You are never rushed. It has become our favorite place for birthdays, New Years eve and anniversary celebrations.
