The food was excellent. I do not drink, but my friends enjoyed the Chimay, once they got over the $30 sticker shock.

10 pages of beers. Great gumbo. Sat at the bar and had great convos with the bartender and regulars. Definitely worthwhile when you're in SLC.

The Bayou is great for a late night meal. The ambiance is always fun. Parking is rough but the good is great. Wide selection of food. Try the gumbo or po' boys. Have yet to have a bad meal.
