What can anyone say other than you need to try it at least once and we can bet the farm that you'll be back. From the specials, to the standards and the yummy cocktails and sangrias, this New Orleans themed place is where all the cool people eat and drink, regularly...

This was my first trip to Bayou. We had a small gathering in the back room for a birthday dinner. The food was spectacular. The service was top notch as well. Definitely worth a visit!
