Great Beer Selection and Good Cajun Food

I visited Bayou for the great beer selection I was told of. I was also very happy with the food. I ate the Bayou Pizza and it had a great sauce with a kick. I had a problem with one of my beers and the bartender promptly replaced it without a question. Good service worth a visit whether your... read more

Service was amazing, food was amazing, atmosphere was amazing! Hubby and I shared the crayfish with catfish dish that was in a butter sauce, as well as the artichoke dip and seafood balls! All so good!

I have not been to Bayou in years. I went out with a group of friends to celebrate a job promotion of a friend. The same group I saw years ago was singing and they were just rocking the place. The food was amazing and the staff is on top of everything. Great place, great service, great food, great live... More

This place has a fantastic beer list. From local taps to world wide bottles. The deep fried Cajun Cornish hen is a must have. The rub really makes it and it is always moist. The house balsamic dressing is one of my favorites on the salad that comes with entrees. The blackened catfish is also excellent. This is my go... More

We really enjoyed our meal here. The food was great, however the waitress was not particularly friendly nor helpful so that is why I'm rating it a 4 vs a 5. I would definitely return next time I'm in Salt Lake.

Fun atmosphere with super selection of beers and eclectic mix of Cajun and pub food. Hummus, potato chips/blue cheese app were non traditionally prepared and a great surprise.

My wife and I enjoyed dinner at Bayou. We sat outside, enjoying the late afternoon. The meals were great (chicken Caesar Salad and Ettouffe), and the wait staff were excellent. The only downer was the parking...they have a small lot and not much on-street parking.
