None of the employees hostess, waiters....wearing face masks. It’s a pandemic! They could care less! About the safety of others! They are serving food and could care less about the safety and health of their customers. Very disappointed!

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

Chucky and Dale (the owners/head chefs) gave been out doing themself for years with La.Bayou Bistro. Everything from the fried seafood platters to the steaks are impeccable. The ranch dressing is homemade, as well. For an extra treat, order the bread pudding or lemon ice...box pie. They're sure to know your socks off!More

I’ve had their catered food several times and it’s always very good. It’s difficult to ensue consistency when you prepare this many meals in advance and they do a good job. Their chicken is very good and their bread pudding is a very solid effort.
