Bayou is in the Beso and Blue family of restaurants. They’re all great. Bayou is creole cooking and a great place for brunch. So much food and cocktails for the price. Lovely jazz player as well.

Excellent beer choices. I have been here several times and always order something unique. This time I ordered a Paella which was excellent.

We have eaten here quite a few times. I have had a number of different dishes all excellent. A very nice cozy place. Sometimes can be tricky getting in without a reservation. So I would recommend calling ahead, it is worth it.

I love Bayou!! I always enjoy their cuisine. Very good service too! I highly recommend the seafood Jambalaya. I find their prices being reasonable. All my family loves Bayou; there's so many different choices for everyone. I will definitely go back to Bayou!!
