Love this locally owned restaurant. Great quality food and good value. We especially enjoy happy hour (4-6 pm, M-F) or a casual lunch or dinner. Baker's dozen of fresh raw oysters shucked right at the bar $8.99 a dozen. $1 Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer and $4 wine and margaritas. I have never had anything off the menu that wasn't delicious....

Really good Cajun! Char Broiled oysters were pretty good. Etouffee was flavorful! A little thick (and the rice was hard in some spots) but overall it was enjoyable with delicious fresh bread. Great atmosphere. Our server, Rick, got slammed with several tables all at the same time - but unlike so many servers we have all seen - he was... More

We had a wonderful experience at Bayou on the Beach. The oysters were fresh and delicious. The service was good and every staff member that we came in contact with was extremely friendly and helpful. We will definitely come back.

I was excited about having charbroiled oysters and they were FULL of shell. The hostess and waitress were very rude. It was not very busy but the noise inside was so loud we could not hear each other from across the booth. Skip it. Captain Ds would be a better option.

We picked this restaurant based on previous reviews. We Must have visited at a bad time of day or a bad day in general. Our waitress was not friendly at all. The food was just okay. My friend had the oysters and said they were good but, It was $15 for just a few oysters. I had crab cakes. For... More

Were reasonably happy on previous visits but this Tuesday was disappointing. Service was slow from placing drink orders to getting our checks. Most of the meals were ok but at least one was poor. Our friend ordered a sandwich from the menu but was told it was not available. The waitress offered an alternative and he accepted. It turned out... More

Oysters are really fresh & the menu is varied with a heavy dose of New Orleans style dishes. Had shrimp and grits and oysters aplenty.Live music,cold beer and everybody having fun...all this and you won't break the bank. Don't miss this place.
