Complete the form below to tell us about the problematic review for Bayou Cafe, which says:
"33 Taps and some pretty decent beers, until you put your lips to the glass that is. This is a Coors Light cell-phone bar, evidenced by all those around me. The rest of the stuff has been laying around growing old, and is barely drinkable. The Smithwick’s was stale, as well as the Harpoon Summer. I left the Red Hook Rye on the bar as it was so bad (I’ve had this fresh and it’s terrific). At $4.25 a pint for these, it’s unacceptable. The beer list is way in the back behind a video game, which shows their priorities. And sit at that end of the bar and you’ll leave smelling like a chicken wing from the grease and smoke wafting out of the kitchen.
This place survives only because it’s on “restaurant row.” It gets busy after the free Alive at Five concerts on Thursday’s and also for Friday Happy Hour, with again, mass quantities of Coors Light being poured. They have an annoyingly loud mélange of Jazz/Blues/Southern rock playing that makes polite conversation impossible. The bar maid’s pull the handle of the tap you point at, but other than that have no clue what the beer is. Order a silly mixed drink and they giggle on cue.
Skip this place and go across the street to the Big House (for now), around the corner to the Pump Station, or grab a cheap cab to the Lionheart. I do hear the food is decent at the Bayou, but that’s not whey we’re here.
