After waiting 40 minutes, we got a table for 6. We were celebrating a birthday and looking forward to good conversation. However, the place was packed, the music was loud, and so we just ate and listened to the singer--70s and 80s music. Smooth. We ordered seafood muffuletta, etoufee, catfish, crawfish sandwich and a burger. All were delicious and well... More

Food was good. Everyone in my family enjoyed the meal. My wife and I had grilled shrimp basket cooked perfect. Others had shrimp and grits and fried shrimp basket. Nothing fancy about dining room. Service was good also. A little wait on the food but for the amount of customers there it was understood. For the $$ it was money... More

Upon entering we were greeted by Hannah. She was our server and did an excellent job. She recommended the Boudin Balls which are Awesome! And then helped us pick some great lunch items. I had the ahi tuna sandwich. I thoroughly enjoyed it. And the Gouda grits are tasty. My girlfriend got the shrimp dinner and it comes with a... More

After waiting for 30-40 mins, we sat a long time before the food arrived. They were out of rare oysters and boiled crawfish. I had the fish special (snapper). Fish was way over cooked and tasted old (hence the special). Service was slow and full of excuses. The band was a highlight and fun to listen to... Better places to... More

We stopped in for lunch and enjoyed it. The menu had numerous items ranging from burgers to alligator so finding something for our party of 8 to eat was fairly easy. We had oysters, gator, jambalaya, gumbo, and couple kids meals. Everything was nice and fresh and came to table hot. Total bill was $95 so we consider that decent... More

Visited Bayou On The Beach for the first time, at the recommendation of family who live in PCB and go there all the time. It was really good, and I place I will definitely go back to. They were busy, but we got seated quickly and our server was great, friendly, outgoing and attentive. I had the special, soft shell... More

Great atmosphere, reasonable prices and nice menu selection. Will try again when in PCB. Waitress was obviously covering too many tables at once and our service could have been better but the food was good.

Excellent New Orleans taste. Muffaletta was as good as Central Grocery in New Orleans. Crawfish Etouffee and Seafood Gumbo excellent. Server Michelle was probably the best server we ever had anywhere. Personality was great. Oysters are best on beach. Recommended by locals.

This is my fave place to eat in PCB. Fantastic food, fun atmosphere. Great for couples , large groups, and families. Everything I've ever ordered has been excellent and I try to order something different every time we visit. Crab cake is a must! You won't be disappointed!
