Cajun Bayou Seafood Market

Cajun Bayou Seafood MarketA new Cajun restaurant recently opened on 155 in Flint.  Like Randy’s, it is a casual place with no air conditioning and it’s BYOB.

As far as ambiance, it is basically a huge wooden patio shaded by large trees.  You walk to the counter to order, then your food is delivered once ready.  I was having trouble decided what to get, so I asked the guy behind the counter what he’d consider the specialties to be.  He said everything on the menu is great which is nice but didn’t really help narrow it down.  I finally decided to go with a shrimp poboy, and my sis got the soft shell crab poboy.  We had no idea what we were getting ourselves into.  Our jaws dropped when the sandwiches were delivered…  These things were huge!  They tasted good, but I could only eat about a third of mine before throwing in the towel.

I’d say this place is a must for anyone who likes Cajun food. It is really cool and will be a great summer hang out.
