It is not located on the beach, but on a highway.The blackened fish sandwich is very good. The Cajun fries and Cole slaw are very tasty! We ate outdoors (under a lean to patio) and smokers were present ( I hate cigarette smoke) . Inside the restaurant it was too cold, the air was on high. Our waitress was a... More

Decent lunch spot, staff was friendly, good prices. This is technically not "on the beach" meaning you can't see the ocean. We ordered the fried green tomatoes, and my husband had the Jambalaya, both were good. I had the crab cake (which was over cooked) and baked potato and my husband had the Blackened Mahi sandwich with fries, which he... More

This is our go to place for a few drinks and great food once a week. We usually sit at the bar and Bill is the bartender along with his fun sidekick, she always remembers us even if we skip a few weeks. I love the Mardi Gras Fish or the ceasar salad with shrimp & my guy always gets... More

Great baked oysters, chicken and sausage gumbo over smoked Gouda grits and shrimp and grits. The crawfish étouffée was outstanding!

We had the oyster sampler. It was delicious. The shrimp and grits were very good. If you want a quiet romantic place, don't go here. Food is good, service is good. Locals go here. Highly recommend.

You can sit in or outdoors no matter you have the beautiful scenic view of the white sandy beaches. The fish tacos is an excellent choice, but be prepared to be full!!

7 People for lunch, 6 of us ordered "Who Dat Shrimp" it's that good. More than happy when were in PCB, we always go to the Bayou at least once, sometimes more.

Since it was our first time here, our server, Judy, was wonderful in suggesting menu items. The "Who Dat Shrimp" appetizer was delicious and could be eaten as an entree' (suggested would be a side of sweet potato fries or grits w/Gouda). We enjoyed the shrimp and grits as well as the grilled fish with sweet potato fries. Lots of... More

We had fast and friendly service. The drinks were good and it was relatively quiet as we were there earlier in the evening. I would guess it could get noisy if busier but for us it was just fine.

Attentive wait staff who take good care of you in the restaurant or at the bar. Good specials everyday, cold beer. Oysters shucked in front of you, usually a baker's dozen...ice cold and decent sized. Their shrimp and grits are the best I have had. We have visited several times and have always had a fantastic meal and service. The... More
