About Us

Since opening our first Bayou on the Beach location on the curve of Thomas Drive in 1999, we have been thrilled to serve our loyal patrons with our authentic Cajun cuisine. Our recipes that our matriarch, Donna, brought to Panama City Beach from Lafayette, have created a menu for everyone to enjoy a taste of Louisiana. 

 

We take such pride in our fresh seasoned and hand battered seafood you will never leave here hungry! We offer a daily lunch special Tuesday through Friday for your quicker work lunches and of course our full menu is available throughout the day.

 

Everything from our Tartar Sauce, Gumbo, Etouffe, Red Beans & Rice, Boudin Balls, Olive Salad, Bread Pudding, and everything else in between is  

made from scratch daily.

We are excited to announce our newest addition, Steamers & Mercantile! Attached to the West side of the Cafe & Oyster Bar, our Steamers & Mercantile will be serving our Steamed Seafood Menu TO GO as well as a fun and regionally curated Mercantile Shop! You can order online, call, or come in and order to pick up your dinner or enough to feed a crowd! You can grab our famous Smoked Tuna Dip and Chips and house made cookies and desserts and even a Sno Ball to finish off your shopping!
