"Wow. I just read my last review. I guess all I can say is what a difference a couple of years make. The Bayou is no longer another storefront on Restaurant Row – it’s a destination. It’s taken me months to post this but it’s only gotten better.
You only need to pass through the doors once and you’re no longer a customer – you’re a good friend. Rit and Nick, who as a team are the finest two publicans north of Key West, keep uncanny track of your secret desires and what best to introduce to your taste buds on any particular evening. And they do it with class, style and flair. If you are three back in the crowd, don’t worry, you won’t wait for a drink.
Just a sampling of what’s on right now: Harpoon IPA, Rogue Dead Guy, Rogue Mocha Porter, Amstel Light, Bass, Magic Hat #9, Victory Hop Devil, Dos Equis, Wachusett Blueberry Wheat, Anchor Steam, Smuttynose IPA, Blue Point Toasted Lager, Murphy’s Red, Brooklyn IPA, and Hennepin. Hennepin on tap? Oh my. Good thing I bring a driver. And as I can now say I am a "regular," I have not gotten a bad beer here in the years since.
The food here has a Mexican flair to it and is incredible in quality, portion size and price. You have to try the steak Fajitas – we keep coming back to those as much as we love all the other dishes.
On Friday afternoons they have great bands in what I’ll call the main bar from 5:00 – 7:00 PM. The place has been added onto over the years with the main restaurant sandwiched between two separate bars and spaces. The back bar is where the late-night action is with bands there as well. With the nice summer evenings we’ve been having, the outside patio has been packed.
I would not know the owner here if he drove over me, nor was I ever in his other place in Glenville. But it’s obvious he had a plan and stuck to it. The Bayou is a jewel not just for downtown Albany, but for the region as well. If this place had a Overall greater than "Awesome" I'd rate it as such.
