Waaay overpriced!. The portion size of entrees is ridiculous. $11.95 for a catfish platter with few pieces and about a tablespoon of sides. Definitely not worth the money. Same for the brisket "platter" for $13.95! Save your money! And out of french fries? A staple side for their entrees?!? Lame! Won't be going there again..
I'VE BEEN HERE MANY TIMES SINCE IT OPENED AND IT'S GONE FROM GOOD TO REVOLTING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
TONIGHT'S EXPERIENCE WAS THE WORST IN ALL MY YEARS OF DINING/EATING IN NEW ORLEANS. The service was bad from the minute we walked in . The rude "French" waitress is an insult to an entire country, quite an accomplishment given THEIR reputation. Mademoiselle, was lazy, slow, got everything wrong, condescending and those were her virtues. We waited one hour for sandwiches which arrived in the form of a scorched dry cold burger, greasy burned, soggy fries and a "pork" sandwich that would make ROADKILL look like haute cuisine in "Frenchies's" Paree. But that was fine compared to snarky, smarmy smug lack of service by the wait staff. QUELLE HORREUR!!!!! RUN AND NEVER LOOK BACK P.S. This is Tthe first time I ever bothered to review any establishment. Don't we all just expect at least something even from a cheap dive..Go to the cheap dive instead. We five all walked out with the food on the table and didn't pay. YOU'VE BEEN WARNED..
WORST BBQ I'VE EVER HAD. Guys...i NEVER take the time to review or rate a restaurant, but i thought it was my duty to let you know that the pulled pork sandwiches were un-edible...not just not the greatest i've had, but truly un-edible! The pork tasted like potted meat with a load of liquid smoke thrown in. If it actually came off of the pit, it hadn't been there for at least 2 days! TERRIBLE! My fiance and i each had 3 bites - just to be sure (we each had our own), and threw the rest in the garbage. Our bodies just rejected them. On top of that - we each got a side, but the french fries were not cooked all the way and dripping in grease. You know how fun it is when your whole order of fries is ruined because someone didn't take the extra minute to cook them long enough! Anyway, for 2 pork sandwiches - which were also very light on the pork and sauce...VERY...and 1 side a piece - it cost 20 plus the tip. DON'T WASTE YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY!!!!
Fun Space and Good Food. I am no a local and only come to the city once a year. I was introduced to the Bywater by a local and every year when I visit I eat at the Bywater. The outdoor space is great for an afternoon lunch with a cocktail it is also great on those warm sultry evenings. The back bar is fun and breakfast is cheap and a cut above the rest.
What you ordered and enjoyed last time may NOT be what you get when you order the SAME product this time.
It will be good, just NOT what you ordered. BEWARE if you have any food allergies and make sure your server is aware as you might ingest something you are allergic to.
Bywater BBQ is a Local Treasure!!!!!.
I recently had the pleasure of dinning at Bywater Restaurant/BBQ/Deli/Pizza. That's right they have it it all and its worth the trip, especially for the new back court yard that's beautiful. The Bywater Chicken sandwich was so good i had to go back and try the pizza and burgers on a later date and my only regret was that i waited as long as i did. This really is the best pizza in town, hands down. That being said the BBQ (all of it) was original, tender and tangy!!! The longer you wait,,,, the more you miss out,,,
go get some and be happy;-)
faqbulous. Ive have been dining here for 12 years, the food is phenominal .we go at least twice a week (sunday brunch my favorite) everyone there is so nice, ive got to know the owner Mike, he,s a very nice man, he creates most of the items on the menu, and i havent found one I don't like. you must try at least once and believe me you will be back. I also want to add that the prices are fair and the portions are big.
