    Great food and great happy hour, but $19 for a Po Boy is sacrilege.

    The shrimp n grits was good but there were too few shrimps for my liking. Then again, there are always too few shrimps for my liking.

    The Bayou is a beautiful Washington version of New Orleans. Po boys are wonderful, ambiance feels authentic, dirty rice taste great. Get the hurricane and feel like you are on Bourbon St.

    Incredible fried green tomatoes. Blackened catfish that tasted just like my childhood. The Marie Laveau is a great cocktail, but ask for a bit more sour mix.
