This is a very busy restaurant and that may hinder the kitchen staff from executing some entrees well. The Shrimp Etoufee was delicious--nicely seasoned with both the shrimp and rice cooked perfectly. The Grilled Redfish, however, was nothing short of a disaster--rubbery and extremely difficult to cut through with a knife and fork. Our server returned the dish to the... More

We are fortunate to live in the beautiful Central Oregon area, and this gem in Bend is a must! Plan ahead, as reservations are definitely needed.

We came with our son and his family to celebrate his birthday and their anniversary. We started with the BBQ shrimp which was the highlight of the dinner. Everyone enjoyed their entrees, blackened red fish, duck, pasta, ribs and pork, but none was especially memorable. Portions were generally large. Wine list had several good, affordable options. Nobody had room to... More

We were referred here by a Verizon rep...and He was right on! THe BBQ Shrimp appetizer was packed with flavor and you get 6 nice size shrimp. I ordered the Oregon chicken bake and was pleasantly surprised. Very flavorful chicken and nice and moist served over a bed of greens with tomatoes, olives, candided pecans and croutons. Very large serving.... More

We have traveled to Bend for the past several years and try to get back to Zydeco's each time. We made reservations and our table was ready when we arrived. The waitress was very helpful in helping us with our entre' and wine selections. I had the fish special of the night, my wife and one of our friends had... More

Had a wonderful dinner at Zydeco. We couldn't get a table, so we sat at the bar (there is also a community table with open seating). We sat in between two couples that live in Bend and both said it their favorite restaurant in Bend. That says alot. One must order the shrimp and grits appetizer. Don't think of runny... More

Can't say enough good things about this place. The food was great, the sauces they had accompany the food was great, the beer selection was great and the service was great. It was a real team effort here as multiple people waited on us besides our own server. Every time my water ran low, someone would fill it. Our server... More

Yes, it's crowded and noisy at Zydeco and you'll need to make a dinner reservation unless you like waiting in the bar for 30 or more minutes. But the New Orleans inspired cuisine at Zydeco is consistently delicious and frankly a good value for the prices. Don't miss the Barbeque Shrimp appetizer. This is not shrimp on the barbie: it...
