So the first thing I learned when checking this place out is to not order the barbeque at Bywater BBQ. I read that on two blogs and heard it from a good friend and could tell by my nose when there was no smell of smoke outside or inside the place. I can also say, from personal experience, not to order the catfish special either. The fries that came with it were limp and virtually tasteless. The sauce and breading on the catfish were equally bland. The only good thing I had was the praline ice cream from New Orleans Ice Cream company.
