I don't remember this restaurant being here before and so glad we know of it now! They're only open on the weekends and being super cautious, only do takeout or outdoor seating, which is nice. We got the assorted "bites", the crab cakes were the...best, but each were tasty in their own way. I got the jambalaya, which had some heat to it and was very good. Hubby was quite happy with his alligator roll, which they put in pork sausage for some fat, that was tasty too! The corn muffin is more savory than sweet but goes well with the food. Will go again!More

We were in Williams during the later stages of COVID restrictions so the seating area was closed. They were handling window and on line orders, and doing a great job!! I had a shrimp Etouffee that was excellent and my wife had the Shrimp PoBoy...which I could barely talk her out of a bite of!! Will definitely stop there again if in the area! I wished seating was available, but then again, if I was there, it was so good I would have ordered a second meal to have (and take home the leftovers!)More

Good food. Excellent gumbo and loved the cornbread. Cookies are fantastic! Fast service. Celiac friendly gluten free food which is awesome! Only complaint was price for amount of food given. With there was a bit more. But it was all good, haha!

Seriously. Bar none. My man just said so. The BBQ shrimp is his new favorite. The crawfish mac n cheese is over the top good. I call New Orleans home, and Trish and JD take me back there almost every weekend. The specials may change...but the flavors and service are never failing. Thank you both so much for sticking with Williams making our little town awesome. We are so grateful for BayouByYou. A great pick me up in such crazy times.More

Excellent food and superior service. We stopped in and were instantly welcomed. The food was very tasty and very reasonably priced. Lots of gluten and dairy free options. Her cookies are homemade and fantastic. Just go there.

As a vegetarian, eating and travelling can be difficult. Bayou By You made it incredibly easy - and tasty!! Of a three week road trip around the East Coast this was easily one the best meals I had - this fact was agreed by the...other 8 family members with me who are a combination of vegetarians and meat eaters. The couple who own this restaurant are wonderful - the food they make is delicious and they are both so welcoming. This is definitely a place to visit!!More

This place is wonderful! Skip the touristy food elsewhere in Williams and come here for high quality cajun cooking. Owned by a couple from New Orleans who cook everything themselves. Couldn't be better.

Bayou by you is a small restaurant, with total seating capacity of about 20 people. Louisiana decor is impeccable, complete with gator skin chairs, shrimp traps, and menu cards with fleur-de-lis. Fine jazz music, not too loud, and there is an outside speaker for people...strolling by. There is a bowl with water and a chewing bone for your dog. The owners are husband and wife who are hurricane Katrina refugees from New Orleans. Seafood and specialties are delivered from New Orleans by FedEx on dry ice. The food was excellent, but may be too spicy for the uninitiated. We had a party of 7 and tried about a half of the menu, including Shrimp creole, Tofu creole, Jambalaya, Gator Po'boy sandwich, Gumbo plus three bite-size appetizers. The only thing I didn't like was potato salad. The restaurant was not as busy as some other places down the same street (Sunday evening in mid-October), which is a pity, because food was great and not expensive. On a cool night this food will warm you up way better than any gas patio heater.More

Wasn't expecting to find Cajun food in Williams AZ of all places, but not disappointed. Sort of a hole in the wall restaurant run by a nice couple who take pride in their food and their Cajun recipes. Food was good. Have friends in the...Big Easy and rivaled meals we have eaten there. Order at the counter and when you food is ready you go get it. Don't be shy if you need something step up and ask. One negative, table was wobbly. Would consider going back if ever traveling in Williams again.More

I tried because of 5 stars reviews. It turned out to be dissatisfied. This is fast food. Small portion of food and very expensive for value. Taste is good, but it comes in small plastic cup. We ordered 2 dishes and paid $28. This location...is gateway to Grand Canyon and most clients are tourists. Also lady working at register was rude and unfriendly. We felt like we wasted money. We should have gone to fast food restaurants. Cheaper and better service.More
