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...

Ordered southern fried chicken dinner. The corn bread and coleslaw were great but the chicken was way overdone and tasted burnt. No seasoning. Would order something else next time. Waiting over 20 minutes since they said that the chicken was cooked fresh.

Been coming here for years - since it opened. Tonight we had our first bad experience. Took over half an hour to get our appetizers. When they arrived the waitress looked at us and said "they are finally here". Waited another half our and still didn't get our entrees so we canceled them and asked for the check. Check came...

I've been to The Bayou numerous times & can honestly say its a Great place for food & fun. This time we went for Mardi Gras Fat Tuesday C J Chenier was performing with his Red Hot Lousiana band & they were outstanding!!! One price for all the food & fun you could want. But anytime at all is a... More

We were highly disappointed with our experience here- wanted so much to like this place. Food is nothing to write home about. I liked the cornbread, but the voodoo wings were a huge disappointment- overcooked and not very flavorful. Had the mudbugs as an app and they were OK. So was the fried chicken and cornbread but the meal was... More

Interesting premise but not as delicious as Cajun food could be. Seems like something has gotten lost in the translation. Heavy on fried dishes, the food just didn't sparkle. A catfish po boy was okay, chicken was also okay. Drinks weren't anything unusally good . There's nothing really wrong about the Bayou, but there's nothing really outstanding either.
