We stopped without a recommendation for lunch and were delightfully surprised with the quality of the food and the excellent service. We had good tender Cajun BBQ backed ribs with a mild sauce, mashed potatoes with gravy made from the drippings, cornbread with a honey gaze and an ample offering of some really delicious collard greens with a bacon based...

If you want a little New Orleans this is the place to come to. Tuesday night I believe is crawfish night by the bucket. Yummy in the tummy! Nice bar size for just wanting to hang out at the bar. Oh and hot sauce Galore, all around you. You can check out there website to see if they are having... More

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.

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
