Great Low-Key Restaurant

To me, it's always a sign of a good restaurant when a lot of workmen have their lunch there. I know that means it's good food at a good price. Bayou Delight was no exception.

We went on Annie Miller's Sons Swamp Tour - had lunch before - sincerely nice service, decent food - the Fried Chicken was sooo moist - service was a little slow, not sure if I would consider this a destination restaurant - but if you are out that way go for sure

Four of us ate lunch here yesterday. One had the hamburger steak with choice of 2 sides, one had the chicken tenders with skinny sweet potato fries, one had beignets and one had fried chicken with rice dressing and a grilled roll. Every one of us thoroughly enjoyed the meal. The fried chicken dinner can be ordered with white or... More

The dock site for the best swamp tour! With good Cajun and other foods. Not scenic but quality food and service.

This is where we go to have to get our fried chicken fix! A no frills place down the bayou. We get the 2 pc breast dinner. So much food you can't eat it all. Very inexpensive place to eat, $6 or $7 with tax. Service is always pleasant. Just a great all around family place!

I'm not sure why this local eatery isn't rated higher on Trip Advisor because Bayou Delight has it all -- scrumptious food that requires no reach for the salt or pepper shaker, local color, walls highlighting local history and characters, and the finest in service. They forewarn you that it takes 20-30 minutes for their cooked-upon-request fried chicken, but do... More

Nothing fancy here but the food was very good and the staff was terrific. Fried Chicken was outstanding! Red beans and rice with sausage was full of sausage and then more sausage on the side.

The menu has a large variety of choices, the food is prepared to perfection (I highly recommend the fried alligator), and the people are the friendliest and helpful you can find! It is definitely a "delight" on the "bayou"!

Ample choices on the menu of down home southern cooking. We ordered from all over the menu and weren't disappointed.
