I just got off work, wanted to grab a beer before my flight for the Thanksgiving weekend. The first place I went to (Whisky Row cough cough) pointed out everything I was doing wrong I.e. you can't stand there, you're on the wrong side, etc.... instead of saying hello and asking what I needed. I decided to just leave, there were no welcoming friendly vibes. I went next door to "Da Bayou" instead and was greeted as soon as I was noticed as a new face. I asked if they had a peach beer and she said no but right away she, whom was very nice, listed fruit beers AND an awesome deal on Minnie pitchers (the pitcher is adorable) This raspberry beer is just what I was looking for before the holiday flight. Thank you for making me a returning customer after I walked in a bit perturbed with the previous experience.
Da'Bayou is exactly what Arizona needed. You might wonder in a area like Phoenix where there are a lot of cuisine options, what could be missing, but Da'Bayou answered that for us and delivered with out-of-this-world southern creole dishes. There is an extensive list of beers, drinks, and cocktails with an emphasis on supporting local businesses. I started out with the gator bites as an appetizer, and I knew from the moment I tasted them, I was in for a treat for the rest of my meal. They were hot, seasoned perfectly with a crispy coating, and were served with a delicious sauce that I hope they bottle up and sell separately. For the main courses, I had the jambalaya and my partner had the shrimp and grits. The portion sizes were huge and were well worth the cost. Each bite made our mouths water more. We were stuffed, but knew we had to try the beignets for dessert and I am so glad we did. They had a nice crisp on the outside and were fluffy on the inside. Aside from the food, the staff were so friendly, and you could tell how passionate they were and how the cared for their food and their customers. I will definitely be coming back again and I have already told so many of my friends about this place. Thank you for making our tummies full and happy!
This was the best Oyster Po'Boy I have ever had! Great food, met the owners, and had great company!
I have tried A lot of cajun food around this country, and these are BY FAR the best Gator Bites I have ever eaten. The batter and fry was perfect, and the sauce provided an amazing creamy balance! Absolutley AMAZING!
Ordering Jambalaya at a Creole restaurant is a no-brainer. The flavors were awesome and the texture perfect. The lunch portion was just the right size for a mid-day meal. Definitely will order it again once I work my way through the menu.
One of the best fried green tomatoes I've ever had!!
Sunday funday! All I have to say is WOAH!! This dish looks way better in real life than the picture and taste amazing!! You will not regret it 💜
I really enjoyed the gumbo. Great flavor and good spice.
WOW! I usually drink the Hurricane yet decided to try the Swampwater and I now have a new favorite drink!
Great place!! Had the fried green tomatoes and the swamp fries but with cheese sauce since I went with my vegetarian husband. Also had a hurricane and their sangria, both great ajd strong. I will be coming back again for some seafood soon!
Having spent a lot of time in Louisiana and growing up in the south, I really missed a meal like this! Da'Bayou delivers fine Creole food that tastes just like home.
Simply da best! This shrimp was pure perfection! We ordered appetizers, Main dishes and dessert and this place is incredible! We recommend the Mac and cheese with shrimp, shrimp for dinner and bigniet for dessert!
2nd time here in less than a week! Place is absolutely spot on each time. Vibes relaxed, food mouth watering, looks like I don't need to visit NOLA anymore.
We tried the Gata bites as a joke aaaand now I will be getting them every time. Turns out I've always loved gator and didn't know it. And the sauce is great too
Will definitely be back to try everything else on the menu! Don't forget to order the Beignets! Service was great and our server, Alex, was very attentive. Nice atmosphere.
My wife got this and absolutely loved it! The bread is sooooo soft! It's a huge portion! We took half home and gave it to my mom, she raved about it too! We had the shrimp tossed in the Mardi Gras sauce!
DELISH is an understatement! This was such a great sandwich! Flavorful as can be! We also ordered the hush puppies. Best I've had so far. You can tell the chef really enjoys cooking and puts love into the meals. 11/10 recommend! Will be back soon!
The shrimp po boy was just as good as what I get back home in Mississippi. The fried green tomatoes were hard to cut and not as good unfortunately. I will definitely be coming back to try the other southern staples that I miss.
What can I say, the food brought me back to Nola instantly. Freshly prepared, amazing service. For being open under 2 months , they have it together. Will definitely be back again and again. Thank you chefs for the amazing food.
Wow...just wow.. these will be the best brussel sprouts you will ever try. I have been to the bayou several times and always order them and always will. They are sweet and savory. They do not have the strong brussel sprout taste. If you do not like brussel sprouts please give them a try you will love them!!
A portal to the French Quarter! The shrimp & grits was perfection - full of flavor, creamy, deliciously seasoned shrimp, and tomatoes! That dish alone was enough to get me to come back, but the gator bites were to die for - the crispy batter plus flakiness of the meat paired with the in-house dipping sauce...just *chefs kiss*! The beignets were doughy and delicious. Now, the drinks... I had the classics, a hurricane and a sazerac. They brought me right back to Bourbon street (in the best way). I will be here again and again - it really is a perfect piece of New Orleans right here at home!
Best meal I've had in years! Very authentic, perfect flavors. Excellent chef, reasonable prices
Omg such a good Happy Hour! Great food and yummy drinks!! This will be a staple from here on out
This is one of the best bennies I have ever had. I love crab cake benedict, but this may very well be my new favorite. You won't be disappointed!!
The gator bites were delicious. They were big and tender not like we have ever had them before. We also ordered the jambalaya and the shrimp was amazing. All the dishes we ordered did not disappoint at all. Even the beignets were on point. We will definitely be coming back. Highly recommend this place.
Abita Strawberry Lager
I had this paired with the fried chicken sandwich. Wonderfully light beer that paired surprisingly well. Even after all of the great food, the beer washed it all down without leaving a bloated feeling.
These beignets were amazing!
Best Hush Puppies Ever! A must order for every visit!
I loved the oysta's rawk. They were rich and flavorful. I definitely would recommend to anyone and will definitely order again.
We traveled from North Scottsdale to try this restaurant out on a Sunday. I was not expecting the amazing food that we ate at all. I was blown away at how rich, fresh and tasty everything was. New Orleans is probably my favorite place to travel to and with not being able to travel right now, this took me back to great memories of the food I have eaten there. Can't recommend this place enough and I can't wait to bring our friends to try it out. Congratulations on seriously some of the best food I have ever had! #NOLA
Best I have ever had
My daughter and I both had the Mac n' Cheese. We agreed it is the best we have ever tasted. The portions are very generous and the quality is evident! We will be back soon.
Soooo good! Perfect amount of crispy sweetness!
The BEST Beignets with 3 types of sauces (Chocolate, Raspberry, Creme Anglaise) the closest you will find to Cafe Du Mond in Orleans. We are coming back for more.
Good puppies and sauce! I'd recommend trying them!
I was impressed by the unique spicy flavor of this dish. I was given a large portion and could not eat it all so took it home. I am hooked and ate every last bite. I cannot stop gushing about this dish to everyone. I am planning to go back this weekend to eat it again. It tastes authentic and has amazing flavor. I am so glad that we have this restaurant in Gilbert. This is a must try dish and beautiful restaurant.
As a southerner I am always hesitant to believe restaurants out here can recreate our dishes as well, but Da' Bayou has done it better!! I was blown away by the seasoning, the presentation, and the incredible service. The fried green tomatoes, Mac and cheese, and the crawfish etoufee are my favorites so far, but I can't wait to try everything on the menu because I know it won't disappoint. Bartender Jess makes the best drinks and genuine connections with every customer who sits at the bar. While Leah is the sweetest and most attentive server. I am so glad this establishment had this makeover because now they are truly one of a kind in not only Gilbert but all of Phoenix. 10/10 recommend!
Amazing taste!! Breading is very light but extremely flavorful. Shrimp is always cooked perfectly. Enough to share with someone but so good you do want to!
This was the first time I've had a po'boy, and it was amazing! Loved every bite of it! Next time I plan on ordering the green fried tomatoes and hopefully some room for dessert! Great yummy place to go to
