Eating at Dillon’s Bayou Restaurant at Lake Pleasant is all about the atmosphere!
We got there a little later than planned and ended up waiting for over an hour. We requested an outdoor table because they said the wait would be the same in or out. Ultimately I was grateful to be sitting outside because the music was a little too loud for young kids.
There was a live band playing the night we were there. The kids enjoyed some dancing while waiting. They played pretty good covers of classic country favorites. The games for the kids were either not working or only tokens. We waited and tried to get tokens from someone who worked there and no one helped. The kids were very bummed because winning a stuffie is a big deal to them. We met a group of kids (who had tokens) who ended up giving each of my kids a stuffie, which was so sweet.
Of note, this restaurant is near Lake Pleasant Cruises, which offers 90-minute kid-friendly narrative cruises, plus sunset cruises. Learn more about the lake cruises here.
