We found our favorite bar on Bourbon Street! Le Bayou is the best. I was really looking forward to my first Bloody Mary and boy!!! I certainly was not disappointed. JD behind the bar made it perfectly for me. Not too hot, but with plenty of flavor. Very friendly, moderately priced and all around great hangout. Will definite go back... More

Has a great location, the staff is very friendly and the prices are fair. I had the muffuletta, it was good but Serio's is better.

We stopped for a quick dinner and had raw oysters and the shrimp with pesto. Both were delicious and were just what we were looking for after a large lunch.

The oyster bar is the best in NOLA, and Rolan can shuck oysters almost as fast as I can eat them. He has a keen eye for watching the crowd too. We enjoyed three styles of oyster - cooked and raw. Loved it so much on Wednesday we had to go back on Friday.

Best bloody Mary's and hurricanes by the nicest bar tender in NOLA. And Steve is one hell of waiter! We have been here twice. Loved the shrimp and now trying a muffuletta!
