July 2012. Maybe my expectations were too high based on the hype here. Donít get me wrong, this place does have an impressive beer list. But the drafts are only the most commonly available Utah brews (plus Bud Light, Shock Top, and Guinness). And while the bottle list is pretty good, itís focused on just a few sources and is horribly overpriced. The Eoic beers from right down the street are marked up 100-500%. And while "Cajun" food might be an interesting twist, it doesnít quite gel with the beer menu, and I wasnít all that impressed. Mitbwas just OK. Iíd categorize this place as "good" but not as impressive as suggested. If pressed for SLC stops, do the breweries. Slackwater in Ogden is a more simpatico beer haven.

Located in a brick building with limited parking on the side. Foods going for a New Orleans theme but is fairly bland. I had the Etoufee and there was way too much rice. The reason to come here is the incredible beer list. You could go a year and not see a Cantillon on the list and they had 4 at prices that were pretty reasonable all things considering. They also had over 300 other bottle options many of which you canít find in the local liquor stores. The had 30 taps of mainly Utah beer. Of course the states draft laws constraint hem. The service was pretty good considering how bus the place gets. If you come to the SLC you have to come here.

Cool looking place, pool table at the back, long bar. Iím not a fan of these private club rules in Utah, but this place is worth paying what is essentially a five dollar cover. About 30 taps with a large selection of Utah microbrews. I didnít eat but other people seemed to be enjoying what they had. Friendly staff. The premiere beer spot in the city, by far.

They donít call themselves Beervana for no reason.
Plenty of taps, mostly Utah beers, but also a few others. A great beer menu of many different US and overseas beers. I didnít eat so I canít comment on that.

Could be a crowded place depending on the time of visit. Seating is first come first serve, which can suck. What doesnít suck is the awesome food and the large diverse beer selection. I had the Jambalaya with crawfish and it was d-lish. I also took in a few local brews on tap from Red Rock, Uinta and Roosters. douglas88 enjoyed a 2004 vintage Cantillon Iris. The place has the goods alright. During my 10pm to 12am visit they had very nice live music too. If I ever move to SLC Iíd need to be close enough to be a regular at this place.

Probably the best bar in SLC. They have a number of tap offerings (around 30), of course all of these are 4%, including some macros and then draughts from the local breweries (Squatters, Wasatch, Desert Edge, Hoppers, Red Rock, etc). Then a massive bottle list, which was exciting to me as a traveler as it featured about 20 Epic beers. Also a lot of Mikkeller, Boulevard, Deschutes, Full Sail, Jolly Pumpkin, and more. When you have 300+ bottles in stock, selection is clearly not the problem as there are plenty of local, domestic, and international options. Their food is Cajun-inspired, obviously. I just got a white pizza and it was ok, perhaps not one of their better offerings. Overall, had a great time here and the selection is hard to beat here in Utah.

Great spot within walking distance of Brewvies. Best bottle list in town -- especially when it comes to imports. Nice staff and mellow atmosphere. One of the best places in SLC.

A jazz band is often playing, and the place is always packed. Forget about all that: there are over 200 types of beers here, and many really great ones. No trip tp SLC would be complete without. Some beers often available include many locals, Rochefort, Cantillion, Chimay, Full Sail, Big Sky, Fullers, and many more. The selection comes and goes, but is always excellent. Also check the íoff-the menuí menu.

Great place. Beer selection is excellent for the area, and they were not out of any of my selections, as so many other "great" beer menu places have been. Food is a varied selection of fresh and tasty stuff; bartender is very knowledgeable. This is a good restaurant and pub that is trying to be a great beer destination , and is succeeding.

The best part of the Bayou is the Cajun food...itís darn close to the real thing. Add great beer to the mix and the place is a welcome destination for any thirsty and hungry beer lover. Iím very impressed how the Bayou can have such a good selection and deserves support from beer lovers.
