They Shuck You Eat

Great Oyster Bar where they shuck them in front of you like they should. Good beer selection to go with your oysters and the crawfish etouffee was just like it should be. You can't go wrong here.

For what I paid for a dinner for two, I would have expected a lot more. Drinks were very small and way overpriced. The waiter took our orders and we didn't see him again until the check. When the food arrived, there was no silverware and no one nearby to ask for some (fortunately nearby table to grab it off... More

This restaurant was pretty good considering it's on the main drag of Bourbon Street. Food was really good, and have good portions. Wait staff was great!! Only negatives were the other diners who were drunk and obnoxiously loud, and only 2 bathroom stalls....had to wait a few minutes to be able to wash my hands.

Fantastic dining experience on Bourbon Street. We had the Cajun oysters and hurricanes for starters and they were amazing. Blackened red fish with steamed veggies and jambalaya and blackened shrimp with jambalaya...simple yet amazing. Very reasonably priced and the wait staff was very attentive and helpful.

We stopped in late one night after exploring Bourbon Street all evening and thought we would have one more drink. I ordered a bloody mary and it may have been the best decision of my night. So delicious! The kitchen had just closed so we didn't try any food, but it looked delicious. The atmosphere was fun as well, a... More

First time visiting New Orleans and came across this place. The service and food were wonderful. Locals also get a 15% discount or if you have a Louisiana ID.

Maybe we had bad luck when we arrived at the time when the waiters shift was changing. We had difficulties to find our waiter and get the food and the bill. The food was not bad, but you certainly eat better in N Orleans than in the Le Bayou.

We were a group of twelve and were seated upstairs. Our waitress was great, the service was great and so was all our food. The prices are reasonable and we would come back here again to eat. It seems that some people have had a problem but for us it was all good.

We stumbled upon this place while looking for bourbon street( come to find out, we were there)! Service was quick, food was okay! I'm pretty sure my shrimp was frozen, I live on the gulf and have had gulf shrimp. Also, the crawfish also tasted off! I was impressed with the red beans and rice

What a delightful place. This was our second visit to NewOrleans and knew we had to eat at the La Bayou again. The whole front of the restaurant opens onto Bourbon St making it feel like your eating alfresco but yet safely inside and away from the traffic. The food was great and the service friendly. Our waiter Slate, was... More
