this used to be a great restaurant but it is riding on past history. Get the Gumbo or the Jambalaya or the Jerk Chicken Salad. Get beer or a mixed drink because their house wine is really lousy.

We visited the Bayou on a whim and had a great time! Catfish and shrimp po boys were delish as were our drinks. They were definitely packing a punch without even knowing it!! The live band was a treat too- will def be back!

Great Cajun food with a lot of flavor. Drinks are big, cold and strong. Atmosphere is very cool and relaxed. The service is great. You won't have to wait for anything.

Located in Mount Vernon, the Bayou brings the flavors of New Orleans to Westchester. And let me tell you, there be some magic happening in that there kitchen. As soon as you walk in, you feel like you're experiencing a little piece of Mardi Gras. The bar is littered with bras and beads and if you look overhead, you'll see... More

So...I LOVE having a different ethnicity of food and there are BARELY ANY Cajun restaurants in the West Chester N. Bronx area. For that, I am thankful. I am also thankful for the ambiance in here, which is awesome. The bar is decked out (in a non-corny) in a New Orleans way. My fiance got wings and really likes them... More

We dined at Bayou Restaurant only because it was recommended by our cousin who loves this place. The coffee was smooth and I was pleased that cream was available. Complimentary corn bread was moist and flavorful and greatly appreciated because the server forgot our beignet order, DARN! We cancelled it because our entrées had arrived. We were disappointed with our... More

We stopped in for lunch, it was 45 mins until the appetizer got to the table. When I asked why it took so long, the answer I got was that the kitchen was backed up. We were one of four occupied tables in the entire restaurant, how could they possible be backed up? Our entrees took another 35 mins after... More

When in Westchester county, please stop here for a different experience not typical for northerners. I have dined here numerous times and everyone I have experienced it with never have any complaints. The mud bugs (crawfish) are always a hit. Make sure to also try the grenade drink , frog legs, and BBQ gator (alligator) ribs. The scene is that... More
