We had dinner here on Saturday night. Great service and food was good. We split the sampler, there's several choices and we couldn't decide. It was a lot of food, happy we split the dish. Corn bread was delicious.

Came back for another visit at the Bayou and loved it, as always.

Our waiter was new, Chris, but knew the specials. He did a fantastic job.

I ordered the Blackened Catfish. I hadn't had that yet and it was also fantastic.

If you're in Banner Elk and looking for good food, good service, and good people, stop by the Bayou Smokehouse Grill.

We just moved to Banner Elk and ate here a few times while looking for and closing on our house. We went here for the wine selection and really enjoyed the food. They have a store at the front of the building with a large wine selection, very reasonably priced. The service is always prompt and the bathrooms are kept clean. Very nice place.

Very good southern food, hence "Bayou". Was there with people from New Orleans so they knew the difference between good / bad southern food. Our waitress was super nice and the service was great. She was very helpful and honest with assisting one of us who was a vegeterian. Overall, the food/ drinks were awesome!

I read about this restaurant on trip advisor. We decided to give it a try on our first night in town. the weather was great so we decided to sit outside. I ordered the chichen fried steak with fried green tomatoes. I was very pleased with my food choice. We wanted to go back and try something different, but we ran out of time. The servers were very friendly and made us feel really welcome.
