I had the pleasure of having the bottomless mimosas Saturday brunch and I loved it. They are really not kidding when they say bottomless. I never had to ask for a refill because as soon as my glass went below half a wonderful waitress was there to refill me. I was also concerned that if the mimosas... read more

I can only review the po boy I had for lunch. Loved the music, great atmosphere, nice hurricane cocktail, but the po boy was a panini. I have been to every state in America and love to experience the local fare. I love po boys because it's simple at its best, the roll is just the conveyance, and it's all... More

This place is nice and close to St. George, the ferry terminal for Staten Island. The setting is out of a 19th Century New Orleans Bordello. The food is reasonably good but not amazing. The waitress, who does everything, was just lovely. The cocktails were average at best but it was good value and a great experience. Certainly worth a... More

I met my husband on a blind date. We met at the Bayou. The food was delicious. The ambiance was great. We revisited this summer for our 10th anniversary of that first date, and it was still great. Delicious flavors...Awesome place.

We loved everything about this place. The atmosphere, the service, and the food was all perfect. We had the Sunday Brunch which was an incredible deal, only $20 for soup or salad, brunch entree, cocktail and dessert. There was live jazz music which really topped it all off. We are definitely coming back for dinner one nite soon.

The food is wonderful and the service is always great. The setting is warm and inviting and the music is an extra treat. We have been going to Bayou since it opened and I have never ordered a meal that I didn't enjoy.

Went with a group of girls for a birthday. Server was great, very attentive. Appetizers were yummy, the jambalaya rice balls were amazing. The white sangria was nice and string. The summer lamb entree was fresh and superb, will definitely be back

I have been a regular to Bayou for about the past two years. Love the food. Service is excellent. Once inside you would swear you're in New Orleans. The service is very good. I recommend the alligator bites (which was something I never thought I would eat and enjoy). Good drinks and leave room for the delicious desserts (Crème Brule’... More
