My wife and I stopped in to Bayou Cafe for dinner. We knew to expect a cafe nestled within a local dive bar, and that's exactly what we found. What we weren't expecting was the food to be as good as it was... which is an understatement. The alligator gumbo was delicious, as were the shrimp and grits. Both are recommended. We were served by Chelsey, a star employee who managed the bar, fended off a flirting admirer, and cared after our every need. Great value, no doubt. Good food, undoubtedly.

We did not eat there, but we had a few drinks and watched the bands. Service was very good, by the older members of the staff at least. One band good, one band awful...

Not sure how we found such amazing jumbalaya in the middle of Savannah, but so happy we did! We had the samplers to try a little of everything and it was all so delicious. Plus, the beer is cheap and they offer live music in the evenings, so perfect place to relax with a good meal.

Look up while walking and you will catch this place (otherwise you might miss it). There wasn't a wait like most places along the path. The food was surprisingly delicious, the service was friendly / helpful, and we had a great lunch. Highly recommend it!
