Great BEER selection in Salt Lake City!

This place is a 21+. That is an important distinction in Utah-only adults with more relaxed alcohol laws. Makes a difference-no tables full of families with 3-5 kids all over the place. This place is one of the best in the city for the beer lover for sure. They have a separate menu just for the... read more

I'll begin by saying the food was excellent! But the drinks, aside from beer, were a different story.. A woman at our table ordered a lemon drop martini, which came out as simple syrup, lemon flavor, no vodka and only half full. We sent it back for a dirty gin martini, which ended up being all olive juice, no gin... More

We were skiing in Park City, Utah and had to drive into SLC to dropoff our equipment. We met a friend who lives in greater SLC and met at Bayou for dinner. It was great! We had gumbo, jambalaya and Hoppin John and seom beverages. Everything (including the service) was awesome and reminded us of eating in New Orleans!

We have been told about the Bayou for years by many friends but never had the chance to go by. Well what better way to have an enjoyable night on Fat Tuesday than having a great meal and drinks at Bayou. We LOVED it. My husband was a huge fan of the gumbo with shrimp, the fried seafood balls and... More

Went here for the first time with a party of five. Fun spot and looked like a great place. I love Cajun food and like spice. To bad for me. Food was bland and needed hot sauce to help Taste the jambalaya. The service was very slow even though it was not very busy. All in all a convenient place... More

So glad we could find a restaurant that is 21&up! The place is dimly lit, so that makes everyone feel more at ease with alcohol that is! There have so many drinks to choose from! I ordered the schofferhofer grapefruit, and it was DELICIOUS!!! For my meal, I ordered the crawfish ettoufee. YUMMY. The alligator cheesecake was a bit different... More

I'm vegan, but that intrigues me. I have eaten here a few times and have not been disappointed. Their fries are to die for and both the veggie sandwich and burger are really tasty. Always great service and a pretty cool atmosphere.

This is one of my stapes when traveling to Salt Lake City. I haven't had a bad thing on the menu. The gumbolaya is my favorite. And the beer list is very extensive. Some consider it overwhelming. That's alright. Just ask your server. They're usually pretty good with recommendations.

I love this pub! Great staff, great food, great service and sweet potato fries! Always a great time. I really like the breezeway that is open during the warmer months.
