Fodor's Expert Review The Bayou

$ Downtown Salt Lake American

You'll find more than 200 microbrews, both bottled and on tap, at this lively, often crowded Louisiana-inflected bar and restaurant. The menu offers plenty of Cajun specialties such as crawfish étouffée and blackened catfish sandwiches, along with more regionally American grub like fried chicken and pizza. Live music, pool tables, and a casual, high-energy buzz make this a fun place to hang out for a while. Because it's considered a bar, no one under age 21 is admitted.
