I have recently moved here from KC. I have been wrecking my brain on finding a place that has live music and a restaurant setting to celebrate my husband's birthday. I was told by a coworker about On the Bayou, they also mentioned that

I have read all the reviews from the patrons to the owners... All I have to say is that I will be celebrating my 35th Birthday day there on 8/22/08. Hopefully I will have a great time at The Happy Hour and the food will be excellent. I

My sister threw my 88-year old grandmother a birthday party there. I honestly don't know why she chose this location. The decor was nice, but a little dark. I was very, VERY difficult to find parking. The DJ was GARBAGE, the music kept

I've been to the Bayou 3 times. I was disappointed when i first went, as there weren't many people there. But the band was good. I've never experienced poor service the times I have been there. The food at this restaurant is really good.

Pros: good food, and ambience

IWe find it difficult to believe that any person would actually return to this restaurant after suffering through a first visit, so we are inclined to agree with the person who suggested that good reviews were written by those with some

Like other users on here, I too had a crappy experience at this unorganized, poorly managed establishment...and that's an understatement. My fiance and I paid $15 to get in the door, since supposedly it's only free on Friday nights before

If you want to go to a place that infers themselves as a "Supper Club" then "DO NOT !!!", I repeat "DO NOT !!!!" got this establishment. The waitress was inexperienced at best, and the management and owner(s) are completely ineffective.

My wife ate there, the service was excellent, the atmpsphere each time is great. The food however is so so nothing really to brag about. The prices are decent could be a tad bit lower unless the food was more tastey.

Having grown up in south LA, I've had the privledge of eating some great food from my family table. As I travel the US and the world, I learned early on that you never eat anything listed as "Cajun", except in S. LA. We came to Houston 4

Went for lunch with my family after church. Took 1 hour 45 minutes for what possibly was the worst restaurant I've ever been to. No bread for the long wait for your food. I drank room-temp tap water b/c they hire lazy kids as waiters.

This is a great place on the Grand Parkway if you are seeking a classy Cajun experience. We had the Jambalaya and the grilled shrimp dinner salad at lunch. What spices! What huge shrimp! And be sure and try the Butterfinger sticks
