“Good service good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

Service is good and so is the food. I always like coming here. Best Cajun food in the Memphis area. But for some reason the ghost river beer is always flat. My favorite beer but not when flat.

“Nice casual Bar and Grill”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

Limited and tight Parking.
Nice Cajun style menu,reasonably priced.Also decent Beer choices.Wine selection limited.
Charbroiled Oysters are excellent at almost 10$ for six,overpriced.
Speedy and attentive Service.We were a party of 14 with separate checks which did
not effect the service.Our Server was professional and efficient.
Good "Hangout Bar" with large TV screens,non Smoking definitely a plus.

“Memphis-style Cajun”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

Every thing was OK but disappointing if you have ever been to New Orleans, Not surprising, I guess. Very dark bar-like atmosphere, many sports-directed TVs, large beer selection. Service seemed slow.

“Great for Game Night ... or any night!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We recently were introduced to Bayou Bar & Grill for the BCS championship game/birthday party. Bayou isn't huge, but were very accommodating for our 25+ member party. Food is delish! Fun atmosphere. Reasonable prices. I had a client appointment yesterday and took them there for an afternoon appetizer. The bacon wrapped, crab stuffed shrimp is my favorite. It is also important to note that it is a part of the historic restoration of Overton Square..

“Our FAVORITE Sunday spot!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

The food is delish. The staff is excellent. Great place to watch sports. Best drinks in Memphis- you can't beat the Bloody Marys or the "Mac"-mosas. Suggestion is to get there early, especially on Sundays, because it fills up quickly!
