Nice selection, mostly bottled beer, but a few taps. No flights per UT state law. Food is Louisiana inspired and big plates for very reasonable prices. Very nice beer list of a couple of hundred beers.

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.

Great selection in SLC for beer! While in the area, try the Epic brewery just down the street.

Recommended by a college friend, this bar met expectations. New Orleans styled food with seemingly every 4.0% Utah beer on draft. Hundreds of bottles as well. Food was good, service was OK, but slow. Overall a very pleasant experience.

Best beer selection in the state... Staff is knowledgeable about beer, and theyíre generally on the ball--even when the place gets pretty damned busy (happens a lot). Really good food. Nice place.

Saturday evening, place was busy, not packed. Great service from the bartenders-- some old guy got shot down for complaining about the 4% Hooegarden-- chuckled w/ the bartender. Ended up talking with and yelling at the Olympics with 5 guys around me that weíre very friendly and beer-knowledgable. I drank a large portion and the bill was only 20 something-- think
I got comped a beer or two. Iíd go back to SLC just for this bar.

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.

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.
