Great food! Just like southern cooking. I cannot find good hush puppies anywhere but they have great ones here! The portions are big and service is good. Its a place one can definently miss but dont miss this little joint!

So...I LOVE having a different ethnicity of food and there are BARELY ANY Cajun restaurants in the West Chester N. Bronx area. For that, I am thankful. I am also thankful for the ambiance in here, which is awesome. The bar is decked out (in a non-corny) in a New Orleans way. My fiance got wings and really likes them... More

We dined at Bayou Restaurant only because it was recommended by our cousin who loves this place. The coffee was smooth and I was pleased that cream was available. Complimentary corn bread was moist and flavorful and greatly appreciated because the server forgot our beignet order, DARN! We cancelled it because our entrées had arrived. We were disappointed with our... More

We stopped in for lunch, it was 45 mins until the appetizer got to the table. When I asked why it took so long, the answer I got was that the kitchen was backed up. We were one of four occupied tables in the entire restaurant, how could they possible be backed up? Our entrees took another 35 mins after... More

When in Westchester county, please stop here for a different experience not typical for northerners. I have dined here numerous times and everyone I have experienced it with never have any complaints. The mud bugs (crawfish) are always a hit. Make sure to also try the grenade drink , frog legs, and BBQ gator (alligator) ribs. The scene is that... More

Bayou had delicious crawfish, seafood soup, gumbo and cornbread. I don't like the collard greens...too much sugar in them. T is in a great location in Fleetwood and the staff is wonderful! The clientele is just as fabulous as the staff. If your looking for a local hangout with good food, good people and a great vibe, this is definitely... More

I have heard ans read such good reviews about The Bayou. I liked the "New Orleans" decor. But sadky, my meal sucked. I had crab cakes, garden salad with basil vinegarrette and a "slab" of cornbread. The crab cakes were tasteless and had more stuffing than crab meat. The cornbread was dry and cold. The garden salad was ok-at least... More

I will first start by saying everything I have had here is delicious. The gumbo is pretty much the best gumbo I have ever had in my life and the 'mudbugs' (crawfish) are spicy and flavorful. The fried oyster po'boy is also one of my favorites. I usually come on weekends, but whenever I bring someone new I do 'voodoo... More

I've been going here for years and live nearby. It's a fun, loud place with great no so much lettuce but a lot of meat salads. I've tried some of the more cajun stuff and definitely like their salads the best with the hush puppies. Great drink selection.

Have been going to the Bayou for over 20 years and never had a bad meal until tonight. Always ordered the man & cheese which always tasted and looked homemade. Tonight it tasted and looked like doctored Kraft mac/cheese. Also made us a little nauseous (fake cheese? ). Boudin sliders mostly breadcrumbs. Waitress very good and was nicely apologetic, we...
