Louisiana Bayou Bistro in Brusly, Louisiana is staffed by two world-class chefs who offer a broad range of menu items. There is also a buffet available if you have trouble making up your mind. This is understandable considering the appetizer menu at Louisiana Bayou Bistro alone has options like pepper jelly shrimp, boudin balls, Louisiana crab cakes and fried eggplant Pontchartrain.
Then, for your main course, you'll need to pick between entrées at Louisiana Bayou Bistro like the shrimp alfredo, crawfish, blackened chicken and andouille alfredo, Creole honey glazed chicken breast, the BBQ ribs and the seafood stuffed tilapia to name only a few.
I made a reservation for July 4 at 11 AM. I arrived at 10:45 and waited until past 11, but no one arrived to open up the restaurant. If they weren't planning on opening for July 4, they should have 1) disallowed OpenTable reservations for that date 2) put up a sign outside saying that they're closed and/or have their voicemail recording state so. We could have avoided wasting half an hour if this place had been less inept.
I went there for Valentine's day. I ordered a cup of seafood gumbo, blackened redfish with mashed potatoes and salad. The gumbo and salad came out with the main meal which I wasn't pleased with. The fish was more like baked fish instead of blackened and my mashed potatoes were ice cold. I was disappointed for that because it wasn't crowded yet, but I will try it again just to see if the same thing happens. If that happens I won't go back. But the food tasted good and would have been fantastic if it was warm.
Food was hot and tasty as we opted for the buffet instead of ordering off the menu. There was a decent selection of meats and seafood so as to satisfy everyone's taste. Service was excellent for a party of 20 and nobody had to wait very long for drinks, etc.
Deserts were sorely lacking. Bread pudding and 3 pieces of cake were all that was offered. I must admit that the bread pudding was excellent but maybe a soft serve machine would help out.
Not our first time there and won't be our last as well.
Thought the restaurant was very laid back and friendly. Was a little disappointed in that i had been trying to get here for some time now. So I guess because of the hype and expectations I had were not reall met. But should have known that the commercial that really sold me was just great advertising! I will return never the less to experience some more of the menu.!
Good was amazing and staff was very attentive & friendly!
