We visited The Bayou in August of this year. Our server was excellent! (There were 7 in our party, 4 kids!) She was patient, attentive and friendly. Then the food came, you must try the crab and corn chowder! Excellent!! We will visit again. Thanks!

Great food late night after ghost tour! Waitress was friendly and live entertainment! We were worried that we couldn't find a great place to eat so late at night. The gumbo was amazing!

We've seen this cafe before and knew it was a bar of sorts...but didn't know they had the menu that they do have. We did try it one evening for dinner and it was very good. More of a bar atmosphere inside and more on the dim lighting side of things, but the food was very good, much better than... More

I have never rated a business with a score of "terrible", but there is a first for everything. My wife and I visited this establishment, arriving at 6:30 pm. We were seated and asked for our drink order, but were delivered the wrong drinks. After about 10 minutes, we were asked for our food order. About 20 minutes later, food... More

Went here on a Friday night for a late dinner. We sat at the bar downstairs, so that we could listen to the live music. Was so pleased that they served local draft beer and that etoufee featured on the menu. It was quite good. The live music was a lot of fun. The guitarist had huge range and regularly... More

The food was great, better than some of the more well known places on the river. The service was top notch, everyone from the server, bartender, and even the doormen were friendly and courteous. The live music was great, played a great mix of good rock songs. Definitely going back on my next trip to Savannah.

Amazing time at this place. The food is SOOO good and we had fantastic service. Beverley and Sabrianna were our waitress and bartender and they treated us great. Good live music downstairs and a really nice upstairs area with a bar that our group rally enjoyed. We will definitely be back next time I'm in Savannah!

We had a large party in the room upstairs and everything was great. Bartender was awesome, server was great, food came out quickly and hot. Overall, great experience and a lot of fun. Fresh seafood and cold drinks! Hidden gem on the river.

Great service, great pub atmosphere, good selection of kids meals. We had shrimp po boys and reuben sandwiches but the rest of the menu was very appealing.
