Located on River Street, the Bayou Cafe offers a small but varied menu for lunch/dinner in a small bar & grill atmosphere. The boiled and fried shrimp baskets we had were good. Came back at night after ghost tour for cold beer & live southern...More

Don't expect a quiet cafe. It is, unashamedly, a bar with billiards and a live band. The tables are crowded, and the ambiance is BAR. That being said, we really enjoyed our food, the service was personal and friendly. Best fried pickles I've ever eaten....More

The cajun style shrimps were good but tasted like hooters seasoning, the jambalaya was the worst we ever had. I can buy this can with jambalaya in every shop and heat it up at home, definitely not home made

Louisianna inspired food. Had the fried shrimp and ettouffee. Both were excellent. Prices were fair. Staff was very friendly. Had live music when I went.

A few steps off River Street, this is an eclectic bar/pub. Went in expecting to get a couple of drinks and some bar food. Wound up staying for about 3 hours listening to the talented live musician and enjoying some good drinks and decent bar...More

The food was OK but they're a bit steep on prices and they're very hard to find! The address posted on most sites is wrong. Doubt we'll be going back.

I think it would be fine for an earlier dinner. There are TONS of restaurants on the water, though. You can always pop in, look around, and decide to move on to another place fairly easily.
