The drink on the left was Krystin's Dark and stormy which she said needed more ginger and wasn't as flavorful as she'd hope. My drink was the Huckleberry Lemonade, a Huckleberry infused vodka, lemonade and club soda mix, which I didn't find to be very good either. From what we tried of the drinks, Bayou's bartender was off of his game that night because frankly the drinks weren't very good.
After all of those appetizers, I barely had room for dinner but I push through so I could give you all a great review (yea right lol). For dinner, I had the jambalaya. It was spicy and very flavorful. I quite enjoyed it. Krystin had the shrimp and grits which she allowed me to try and I have to say that it kicked my poor little jambalaya's butt in the taste department. After that one bite, I had to ask for subsequent bites just to "make sure" lol. Though Krystin's had the better entree, I still enjoyed my dinner.We finished off our meal with one of the best bread puddings I've ever had. It was topped with a delicious rum butter sauce and served with vanilla ice cream.
Bayou is a great restaurant, the waitstaff was very attentive and helpful. I would rate it a 9 out of 10. The deduction in points was due to the lack lusters drinks other than that I would definitely recommend checking this place out. I know I plan on going back for some po boys and for that delicious shrimp and grits.
