The Bayou Restaurant Review

: A raucous bar scene, including lots of sports on TV, and live music most weekends make this a Main Street hot-spot for the twentysomething crowd. Upstairs, where the atmosphere is calmer, you can sample pub grub such as build-your-own burgers, wings and chili along with pizza, Bayou fries and Dungeness crab legs. An upstairs bar, the Blue Room, features plasma TVs and is an ideal place for noshing. Drink and beer specials abound.
