Backyard Bayou includes a service charge on Dine-In orders to account for rising costs and inflation. The cost of food and other materials used in the restaurant has gone up significantly in the past few years, making it difficult for us to keep our prices low. Additionally, we need to pay our workers a fair livable wage, which has also increased in recent years. By including a service charge, we can help cover these rising costs and ensure that our employees are paid a fair wage. This helps keep us in business and gives our customers the best possible service!
