Bayou Bay Seafood House
7117 Chapman Hwy. * 573-7936
Stop into this "quaint" Louisiana style restaurant for some Cajun food that will make you think you just stepped into the Bayou. Head Chef Andy Cantillo can whip up a Gumbo that will knock your socks off. In fact, he won the Gumbo cook off contest here in Knoxville and took first place in the people's choice awards in the Louisiana Festival of Bonfires. Everything is as good as the gumbo, including the char-grilled amberjack filet of white fish, the fresh oysters prepared any way you like 'em, the she crab soup, and much more. Smoking allowed/handicapped accessible.
