I cannot say enough good things about this venue and the staff of Bayou Bluegrass! From the time of our initial visit until wedding day, Shanna could not have been more attentive or accommodating. Our wedding day showed a 70% chance of rain despite our dream of an outdoor wedding, Shanna stayed in constant contact with me to ensure that I felt relaxed and prepared despite needing to implement a "Plan B". The day ended up being sunny and hot, and she couldn't have been more of a trooper when I made a game-time decision to move everything back outside. And that is just one small example of how absolutely committed Bayou Bluegrass is to making your day as special as possible. Incredible service aside, the venue is also beautiful and the food is DELICIOUS. As a word to this wise, maybe rent industrial fans if getting married in the warmer months (there isn't any AC). But definitely don't let that keep you from wanting to get married here in the summer. Can't recommend enough!Sent on 06/15/2018

A dream come true
Everyone loved this place, and all the associated bits. The weather didn't cooperate so the ceremony was held upstairs. It's deceptively large! The food was amazing, and the service was beyond compare. The bartenders cracked me up and I had so many people tell me that they had similar opinions of them. Near the end of the night when things were starting to wrap up, I tried to help the clean up crew out and they sent me away and told me to enjoy my wedding. They wouldn't let me help! It was funny and I think I needed that reminder that it's for my husband and me. Shanna was a wonderful help, with planning, set up, and just keeping me posted on things.Sent on 04/21/2019
Also definitely get the green beans with garlic and shallots if you can. They're absolutely killer.

This place is amazing! My fiance and I fell in love immediately and I'm even more in love now that our wedding has past. Erin was super fantastic and did an amazing job to make sure everything went great for our day. We cannot thank her enough for everything! No regrets whatsoever.Sent on 12/10/2018
