Bayou Delight is a quaint restaurant set on Bayou Black. The food is fresh, with daily lunch specials as well as a full menu. The fried chicken is delicious! Prices are extremely reasonable. Dress is casual.

What a wonderful restaurant with Cajun flair. Food is delicious...seafood platter serves more than one person, possibly three. Cajun music is wonderful to hear.

The food is cooked to order with daily specials. Great for tourist, the working man, or a Sunday outing with the family.

In Louisiana on a trip and hoping for good seafood. . . Did NOT get it here. Catfish had no taste; burger was like the preformed patties sold at Sam's. Service was friendly but not very attentive. Onion rings were the only thing we liked.

Came early and had Boudan balls while waiting, then shared the big chicken dinner when we returned. It was all well prepared, chicken crunchy and not oily! Service was was a bit slow early, but a relaxed and comfortable place!

The food was ok. Fried food- not too many healthy options. Good place to go after a swamp tour or on a Sunday drive. Restaurant is clean and kid friendly. Service was great!

Saw lots of reviews raving about the fried chicken, so decided to go try it. It is good, but I don't think it is as good as has been written about it. The Acadiana Potato was really good, as was the roast beef poboy. Service was good and value was excellent.

We stopped in after the Bayou boat tour. The shrimp po boy was the best I have had in a long time. Traditional Sunday fried chicken dinner looked fabulous as well. Service was good and friendly. Would certainly go back if back in the area!

We were told to meet our tour guide for our swamp tour, behind this restaurant. When we went inside to get details we noticed 90% of the restaurant was eating fried chicken, so we vowed that upon our return we would try it. It was hands down, the absolute best fried chicken we ever tasted. We ordered margarittas, and although... More
