The Bayou Smokehouse

130 Main Street Banner Elk NC 28604

Let your taste buds experience a red-hot recipe of Cajun and Cowboy culture, served with southern hospitality at the Bayou Smokehouse and Grill.  Authentic Louisiana and Texas cuisine abounds on the extensive menu. For a taste of Texas try the Bayou’s Texas-style Smoked Beef Brisket BBQ, Chicken-fried Steak with Cream Gravy or Beef Brisket Fajitas. Visit Cajun Country when you savor the flavors of David’s “almost famous” Spicy Shrimp Gumbo, the Bayou’s Chicken and Sausage Jambalaya or any of the delicious Po’ Boys.  Take a tour of Louisiana in one meal when you order the Cajun Sampler which offers up Gumbo, Red Beans & Rice, Shrimp Creole and Crawfish Etouffee! And when you order Mama ‘Nita’s Louisiana Bread Pudding with Whiskey Sauce we’ll even provide you a copy of the recipe!

We also offer a delicious selection of Design-Your-Own Salads,  hand-cut Ribeye Steaks, tender Bayou Smokehouse Ribs,  Mountain Trout and crowd pleasing Burgers, Sandwiches, Wings, Nachos and more.

Children may select chicken tenders, shrimp, hot dog, hamburger, cheeseburger or beef BBQ sandwich from our Munchkin Menu.

On Saturdays and Sundays the Bayou offers a delicious Brunch Menu in addition to our regular menu, both days until 2 PM.

Our Bar ~ Like many a New Orleans restaurant worth its salt, the Bayou features a large bar offering cocktails, beer and wine.

Our extensive beer menu focuses on American Craft beers, including local and Louisiana favorites. With a selection of 10 draft beers and over 60 bottled beers it may be difficult to make a choice.

Wines are offered by the glass, or take advantage of “Wine Amnesty.” Select any bottle of wine from the adjoining Bayou General Store and enjoy it with your meal at store shelf price… no cork fee, no upcharge added.

And be sure not to miss “Aunt Lottie’s Make Your Own Bloody Mary Bar” every Sunday from open until close

Lagniappe ~ “A little something extra” free of charge is always available when you visit the Bayou.

During the winter cozy up to one of the two fireplaces in our dining room.

Watch your favorite team on any of our numerous televisions (including 2 on the deck!) Our system features three separate feeds so we are able to show three different events at the same time.

Play National Buzztime Trivia free anytime you visit the Bayou. Simply ask your server or bartender for a gamepad.

In the summer relax on our large deck, which has both a roofed and an open section or play “corn hole” (a bean bag toss game) out in the Courtyard. Child-and-canine-friendly four legged family members are welcome on the deck and in the Courtyard provided they are leashed.
