The food is amazing, and the drinks are heavy on the liquor! What more could you ask for? I know! Ask for Aaron to be your server. He's was so sweet and attentive. Le Bayou is the best thing on Bourbon Street. I'm coming back!

This place has great food and good prices. It does not matter where you eat everyone charges an 18% gratuity, so don't be shocked. Try their fried cheesecake it is very tasty. Also their baked oysters are good.

The muffeleta sandwich is AWESOME! Shrimp & grits were good too. A little expensive for quantity of food. Server Aaron was wonderful!

We stumbled upon Le Bayou Restaurant. We were asking the waiter, Aaron, for directions to another restaurant and decided to ditch those plans. We were glad we did! The food was excellent and Aaron provided the best service! We would come back again just to see him!

Great gumbo, awesome fried shrimp, friendly wait staff, and reasonable prices considering it's on Burbon Street.

We had our first meal here in New Orleans. We each had a Po Boy. The waiter said we should have the sauce. He failed to mention it was $4.95 each. I had crawfish, it could have been anything that was just fried. Overpriced drinks, wouldn't return

After checking out several menus on the outside walls of several restaurants on Bourbon Street, we decided to try this place. The service was very good, it had open windows/doors to the street. The menu had all the New Orleans specialties. I would recommend this place. We enjoyed so much we went back for another meal here.

You can make the same food at your house so if you are not here for Oysters, don't waste your time and money. Also, it is right on Bourbon Street and the stench from the sewer is very strong if you still on any of the tables close to Bourbon. The service was excellent and the decor is good but... More
