The Bayou cafe has some of the best southern food I have ever eaten. The etouffte was rich and thick and filled with shrimp. My husband had the crayfish first (perfectly cooked) then the jambalaya. He said he hadn't had jambalaya that good in years....More

I think it would be fine for an earlier dinner. There are TONS of restaurants on the water, though. You can always pop in, look around, and decide to move on to another place fairly easily.

Thank you for contacting The Bayou Cafe! Unfortunately we do not serve spaghetti. We do however have shrimp and fish dishes in a traditional butter & garlic sauce with Penne pasta.
