The food is amazing. Seriously fantastic.
The drinks were also delicious. Our server was fantastic. My only criticism is the tight space. We had a table for two and we were surrounded on either side by other diners. I felt like we were at one long big table. Could hear everything they were saying and I felt like I was shouting. And since their food comes served on large pieces of wood or hot skillets, you really need larger tables. But I would still go back there because of how good the food is!
Friendly servers, great food and a nice atmosphere
The food was very good, but the menu really needs indicate which dishes are spicy and which are not. My companion ordered one of the specials, and there was no indication that it would be a spicy dish. After complaining, the chef sent out some coconut milk to add to the entree, but that was not a completely satisfactory solution.
Nice and cozy environment, great staff, amazing food!
As always.... Excellent food and great service!
Went for the crab-stravaganza and it was great. Enjoyed every minute.
Went for Sunday brunch and the chicken and waffles were fantastic.....The crabs on Thursday were not good at all. Do not recommend! Lousy tasting, hardly any meat and filled with cooking liquid....BLAH!
We had the 20 crabs for $50. Crabs we're fresh, sweet and juicy. They didnt have the usual Old Bay seasoning. It was just spicy enough and a good flavor for the crabs. Made us feel like we were at the shore. Very good experience for dinner in Bethlehem.
We had a great time at the crawfish boil. We had to wait for a bit even though we had a reservation but they made up for it with complimentary cornbread and beignets
Had an amazing meal. Servic e was great
Love the Bayou. The food is phenomenal and the people are welcoming and friendly. The entrees are limited, but delicious.
Simply the BEST fried chicken around! They have a nice happy hour with discounted drinks. The Jalapeno Margarita was really tasty!
This is our second time dining with the Bayou and they did not disappoint!!!
Great food! Super staff! It can get loud but totally worth it!!!
Phenomenal food, great atmosphere, highly recommend this place
I went with a friend on a weeknight for a casual meal. We sat at a hightop table by the bar. My friend and I shared the brussels sprouts and corn bread. Both were very tasty. I had the shrimp and fried green tomatoes small plates as my dinner and my friend had salmon. For dessert we had chocolate cake and beignets. All our food was good and interestingly different from most restaurants in the area. I would go again. The service was as expected, my only complaint would have been after I paid the bill and we chatted for a while our server never returned to check on us. I had to go to the bar to get more. water. Prices were about average for a decent restaurant. Noise level is a bit loud, even on a slower weeknight.Not for a romantic evening, but for a group of friends it is great. I would definitely return.
Since I was there last a Gumbo dish and Jambalaya was added. I did not get to try the
Jambalaya this time, but the Gumbo was terrific. I would have even liked it to be
a bit more spicy, but that's just me!! The food and beer selection is amazing and It
will keep me coming back.
I saw The Bayou Bethlehem as a recommendation on Open Table. Really loved this restaurant! The food was fantastic!! What a gem!
Delicious food and great ambiance. Friendly staff. Look forward to eating here again. Definitely would recommend to anyone that loves great southern cooking.
Great service, great food. Definitely going back. We went for my wife’s birthday. I had a special request to make sure they embarrassed her. They had the entire restaurant stop and sing to her.
Excellent small plate and appetizer selections. We shared collard greens, fried oysters and the mac n cheese. Plenty of time between those and the sandwiches we ordered. Brisket and pulled pork were smoked with great flavor. Fried chicken was crispy and moist.
oh, the bourbon drinks are pretty tasty, too.
Our waitress, Mary was so thoughtful and awesome! She provided many recommendations, all of which were great. The food was incredible, and cocktails even better. Overall a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend it.
Other than being a bit loud ( music) food and service were excellent. Would definitely go there again.
We love the Bayou! Amazing food and drinks! Perfect for a date night or special occasion.
The few things we have tried here have been excellent , including chicken sandwich and the famous fried chicken with mashed sweet potato . Voodoo juice cocktail was also good. I definitely recommend reservation after 5 pm.
The Bayou was very pleasant. The service was ok. We had a good table, however it took a bit long to get our drinks.
Our waitress Emily was great , we had lovely conversation with her, she was friendly and our order was taken with no problems .
We each got the sea bass for dinner, which was pretty good. Our drinks could’ve used much more alcohol in them, it was mostly mixer. The waitstaff seemed extremely busy but was still able to do their jobs proficiently and professionally. Overall this was a good experience and we will most likely be back.
Nothing bad to day. Fried chicken was excellent as was the corn bread. Will definitely be back to try other things.
Great Food,Great People,It was me and my wife first time going and we'll definitely visit again in the near future.
If you haven't been here, you need to put it on your list. Best food ever!!!
We enjoyed our first visit from a food perspective, but our server was downright rude. She was very short with us and not very attentive. We were there at 3:15PM on a Sunday. It was not busy. I have a lot of food allergy issues. She did work with me to figure out what I could order. She seemed more bothered by my friends that were ordering and asking for suggestions. She even walked away from taking our order mid ordering. We asked for water refills and only one our of four of us got a refill. The food was good enough to give the place another try.
The Bayou was very busy when we arrived so we had to wait about 15 minutes past our reservation time for a table. This would not generally be an issue but there was really nowhere to wait. Once we were seated, service was a little slow (it took about 45 minutes to receive our meals) but okay. The food was good so no complaints there. We had a decent night out but the experience did not "wow" either of us.
The food and drinks were amazing. I also loved how the owner comes to each table to make sure everything is good. The only bad part was that we felt we were be rushed out by our server. Other than that, amazing.
Always enjoy dinner and drinks at the Bayou. The Brussels sprouts and mac-and-cheese are delicious.
We absolutely love this restaurant. The food is consistently delicious. My husband always gets the fried chicken and I can't seem to deviate away from the catfish. Plus, we must have the mac and cheese and cornbread as well. Can't say enough good things about the food. Our service wasn't stellar this time as our waitress let our libations go unfilled, but this was just a blip on the radar. Highly recommend. One of our favorite places. Marliese
Food was great as always and I know we'll be back again.
My husband and I went there before a concert. We stood at the hostess stand till the hostess was done txting someone, literally with her phone up . Service was very good! The food just wasn't my thing which is fine but especially the ribs were Very tough! I ordered 4 sides/small plate items and a cesar salad and of course delicious cornbread my husband had jambalaya and the catfish and he loved everything! It was kida pricey in my option .
I was here about 2 years ago and I’ve been thinking about the beignets ever since!!! They are AMAZING! Love the buttermilk fried chicken and cocktails are delicious (my favorite is the Blue Bayou) Service is great, atmosphere is great. My mom loved her meal of butternut squash soup and the pear and arugula salad-that cheese was amazing! We all had a great time!
Stellar service , fabulous food , total terrific time!!!!
but It is noisy and does not lend itself to quiet romantic dining ...
Great atmosphere! Menu was delish! Captured the essence of Southern Favs! Shrimp & Grits ... if I could, I would have licked the bowl! Excellent!
