I took a group of people from other parts of the US to Bayou Bistro for lunch. They were given the opportunity to order off of the menu or eat the Friday buffet. Most ate the buffet, and even shared some of the choices that...they made with other members of the tour. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the food, the service, and even purchased items from the deli area to take back home.More

Very good Buffett with lots of choices! Great fried catfish and all the trimmings. Lots of other shrimp dishes, including seafood gumbo, shrimp stew and okra and shrimp gumbo. The salad choices were fresh and very enjoyable. A variety of desserts completed the meal.

It doesn’t look like much on the outside but I was impressed. The chicken was hot and fresh and delicious. Green beans and rice dressing very good too!

This place is a average buffet. During lunch they often run out of food. Even though daily they switch the menu every day it’s the same old stuff. Now ordering from the menu something that not on the buffet that day is highly recommended.

My husband & I ate here this past Saturday while staying at Nottoway. I got the grilled chicken Lejeune & he got the fried catfish. Mine was absolutely delicious, very well seasoned chicken, full of flavor. I also enjoyed the red beans & rice. My...husband didn't care for his so I knocked off a star. He felt the catfish was bland. I loved my food though and would definitely go back. Service was good too. It's more of a family oriented restaurant than a romantic atmosphere.More
