Brewery
Bywater Brew Pub is a full-scale Brewery and a full-service Bar and Restaurant serving Cajun / Vietnamese / Gastropub food
Locally owned and operated, BBP features a Viet-Cajun menu, five beer brewing tanks and a full bar. Chef Anh Luu was born and raised in the Vietnamese Community of New Orleans and honed her skills for 10 years in her restaurant in Portland, Oregon before returning home to run BBP’s food program. Our Brewmaster, Sonny Day, joins us from Urban South Brewery and is excited to brew the best tasting beer in New Orleans here at Bywater Brew Pub. Our space will feature art from local artists, many of whose studios are located on the second floor. Located at 3000 Royal Street at the corner of Montegut in the Bywater Neighborhood of New Orleans Louisiana, we look forward to serving our neighbors in the Bywater and beyond.

Crawfish Etoufee Nachos are without a doubt the best nachos I have ever eaten in my life! The Asian / Louisiana fusion food is mouth watering.The beers are excellent with a Wilde variety of choices. It is a must for those who like good beer and tasty food.

Out of tofu which negated the whole vegan menu. Trivia was happening and the loudest trivia I’ve ever heard in my life and they wouldn’t let us move to an empty table farther from the speakers. Food was fine, I got the phorrito, meat was good and it came with a little side of very salty broth I kind of liked.

Highly recommend Bywater Brewpub. The extensive list of beers, wine, and cocktails were delicious and the Vietnamese inspired menu offered a pleasant surprise that distinguishes itself from other brewery fare. They accommodated all of my relatively large group's (9 people) requests by seating us outside and offering plenty of covid-safe distance from other patrons and the service remained impeccable throughout the night. We enjoyed spring rolls, Vietnamese inspired crawfish (HIGHLY recommend), pho burrito, crawfish etouffe nachos, salads, a burger as well as an assortment of house-brewed beers and expertly crafted cocktails. We ended up staying until closing and I can't wait to return.

Food was very creative and delicious. Somewhat busy the night we were there as it was also "Trivia Night".
One of our party also enjoyed a flight of beers.

We made reservations for our anniversary, which happened to fall during a New Orleans saints playoff game. The restaurant did save us a table and we were seated as soon as we arrived. The service was fantastic, and the menu offered plenty of happy hour specials which was nice. We ordered drinks, and I was happy with my spiked Vietnamese coffee. For food, we selected the banh mi burger and phorrito, which were both tasty and fantastic. Our server was very receptive throughout our visit, and we will certainly visit again to try more of their food and drink offerings in the future.

Couldn't wait for BBP to open, and Chef Anh Luu did not disappoint. We especially liked the shrimp with remoulade sauce (only on the happy hour menu) and our burgers (I can recommend the Tofu Burgers for you non-meat eaters). The list of local beers offered besides theirs (coming soon) was impressive, as well as the wine list, which is often overlooked at Brew Pubs, so was much very appreciated. Can't wait to return to try all the things on the menu. It was our first time eating indoors since the pandemic, but we felt safe. Very high ceilings, LARGE separation of tables, staff was very careful to keep distance and wear masks. In better weather they can open large garage doors in front to increase airflow even more. We are looking forward to returning.
