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.

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.

Been there many times and the service varies dramatically. Some of the wait staff have great knowledge on beer and are attentive, other not so much. Our favorite beer spot 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.

The selection is the best I have seen since I move to Utah the food and wait staff are excellent. Get there early if you are going on a friday or saturday night because most of salt lake will try to cram their way in.

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.

A very lively cajun themed beer bar/resto in downtown SLC very close to Epic Brewing. Staff was okay but maybe spread too thin to be effective. My main complaint here was that while equipped with AC they did not have it on. I donít know if they were saving $ or trying to be green but it made for a very unpleasant experience.
Donít be fooled by the extensive beer menu, many of the selections listed were not in stock. Still enough there for most beer geeks to find something to make them happy. Gripe #2, if I order a large format bottle, I donít want the whole thing poured into one giant glass. I want to share the darn thing with the people I am eating/drinking with.
Food was decent, recommend sticking with the cajun dishes. Burgers were ho-hum. So turn on the AC, hire two or three more servers, and keep the list updated or printed with things that are always kept in stock and print up a new arrivals/specials insert.

Great selection of beer. This place has an awesome menu of local, regional, seasonal and world beer. The food ranges from average to really good depending on what you get. Typical pub fare with some great souther hits. The place has a nice ambiance. Old brick building with a nice bar. I would recommend hitting this place up. Itís nice to see such a great beer menu in Salt Lake.

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.

Itís Utah, so the prices are just silly as they have to buy from the State DABC at th same cost as Joe Public (no wholesale alc in Utah!), then they markup even higher ustto survive. Not there fault really, itís jut Utah.
The beer selection is second to none and the staff seems to know right off which few they are out of stock. Rare beer s galore! The food is good, but pricey for a pub. It was much too hip of a place before Utah got rid of the membership/private club law, now it seems to have mellowed a little, dropping some of the yuppies.
The jazz combos in the corner are always a nice touch and not so loud they overwhelm. IItís a great place to go and try a beer youíve never heard of before, and often the only place (outside searching the liqour stores) youíre going to find the more obscure brews.
