Went there last week. Salad and soup were very good. Oyster stew. plenty of choices for a typical and tasty Maryland treat. I will return to try other items.

We are regulars at THE BAYOU so much so that the owner recognizes our voice and knows what table we want to reserve when we call. We keep going back because the whole menu has delicious entrees at reasonable prices, the extras of salad, warm rolls, vegetable tray are bonuses which enhance the meal. Even alcohol is reasonably priced. Tonight... More

The Bayou is a local iconic gem! Don't judge it by its 50's outside appearance. Step inside and enjoy the food that Lou and his staff will prepare for you. From delicious crab cakes to fried oysters and fresh oysters in season to prime rib and his to die for homemade pies! The food is very good, served by a... More

We went to the Bayou with a dinner group. The room we were in was very nice and spacious. Our server and her assistant were excellent. The food style is American, steaks, pork chops, seafood, etc. All our fellow diners liked their meals very much. My wife and I split a sea scallop dish that was very tasty and large... More

If you want a REAL crab cake, large portions, and homemade pie you have found the perfect place! We took a detour off the main highway and had no regrets. What a delicious meal! There were huge chunks of crab in the crab cake and I savored every single bite. We were greeted and seated right away. The prices were... More

Like another reviewer, "don't judge". This place doesn't look like much and any time I've been in the area over the past several years, I've always blown it off. I decided to give it a try and was pleased. Service was fantastic and they don't hover over you but do keep an eye out. Seems to be popular with the... More

We've been going to the Bayou every 2 months or so with friends for the last couple of years. The food quality is always consistent and the portions are large. They start you off with a vegetable tray with homemade salad dressing. The fried shrimp are large and perfectly breaded. Crab cakes, scallops and steaks are also very good. The... More

Heading down Tobacco Road, got tired, stay at Motel 8, next to us was the Bayou. Had excellent broiled crabs cakes (don't missed), scallops wrapped in bacon, seafood bisque which was more like a chowder (I should have got a bowl instead of a cup). We left full and satisfied. Just what we were looking for and found in crab... More

The old adage about "not judging a book by it's cover ,"is very true. If you did you would blow by this unimposing " Dinner-like," setting. If you did, you would miss some world class seafood and professional service. On this day my associate and I had the lump meat crab cakes - Amazing! They have respectable choices of wine,... More

Since my review is anonymous, I can admit this; I use the Bayou to commit fraud. I order the 4 on the Go, bring it home, swap out the take out containers for my own and serve it to my guests. No one ever knows that it’s not homemade. I have also eaten in the restaurant. The food is always... More
