I was shocked how good everything was! It is a very unassuming place, but the food is exceptional. My wife had the gumbo and I had the Gator and Catfish. The fresh raw oysters were some of the best I have ever had. The service was spot on everytime. They seemed to know what we wanted before we did. Great... More

The bayou is our special place for dinner when at the beach. The food & service is always great. The perfect place to relax and hear some good music in a casual atmosphere. The food is always fresh - the ruby red shrimp are the best! The oysters are also always great.

Been a year since we have been here but the food and service wad excellent as always. Best Red Royals around and plenty of them. Shrimp was great also. One in our party had the hamburger and they said that was good also. We never miss this place when we come to town. A little pricey but worth it.

If cajun style is what you're hunger requests then this is the spot for you. During the brief time I lived in PCB and each time I visit I've always been more than satisfied with Bayou's. The genial service makes me feel right at home and the oysters have yet to disagree with my taste buds. Never slow to pop'a'top,... More

My husband and I went for an early dinner since we had missed lunch. Very large raw oysters for cheap! Ahi tuna was cooked to perfection, and the beignets drizzled with warm honey and sprinkled with powdered sugar served with a cup of decaf coffee were all excellent. We will be back on our next trip. Our server was Nicole,... More

Went here because they showed up when I searched for royal reds. This place is fantastic. It's loud and casual, had live music and looked like any normal beach bar. We had the four cheese oysters as an appetizer, and they were outstanding. My mother in law and I had salads with our meal, and they were the weakest part... More

My husband and I enjoyed our evening and food very much. There was live music, unexpected, but surprisingly enjoyable. Chargrilled fire whiskey oysters, swamp cakes, shrimp and grits, beignets, Bloody Mary from bar, all were pleasing. We've been here several times, and will continue to come back.
