My husband and I both love the Bayou . I love the retro feel, the relish tray , the crackers and butter and the white table clothes on the tables. And the servers pack up any thing you would like to take home, reminds me of when I was a kid and all the restaurants offered these amenities. White table... More

Clearly they know where to source their crab. Soft-shelled and crab cakes were both perfect. If you want some fresh crab simply prepared, go here. I can't speak for the rest of the main courses but they looked pretty good. And it's popular with a family atmosphere and attentive service. Get crab with salad and fries, it's very worth it....

If I could give "0" stars to this review I would. The Bayou Restaurant, which appears to be a favorite among some of the locals, is not the place to eat or drink anything, assuming you have any functional taste-buds. Some caveats before I continue with the specifics: 1) The staff was generally welcoming and cordial, although our waitress was... More

This is owner operated. Really nice place and so pleased to eat in a non chain restaurant. Very friendly service, good quality bar.

As newer members of the HdG community we've eaten at all the trendy hip local joints (all of them). For some reason we avoided the Bayou House on hwy 40, partly because it looks like a throwback to 1970 - and thankfully, it IS. No apologies, this is a retro place in a lot of ways, but in all the...

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
