Prices are fair, most of their food is fried, portions are generous. Casual place. Very busy a dinner time, good place to bring kids.

Food was average. Got the crab cakes and it just tasted like Thanksgiving stuffing deepfried. Not sure if it even contained crab. Only got 3 small (half the size of my palm) cakes for $15. Daughter got kids hamburger and fries which was HUGE. Sweet potato fries were excellent, very crispy. The restaurant itself is very old and run down.... More

The place is dirty and the only reason we stayed is because of the reviews on here and we were starved after traveling all day. We ordered deep fried shrimp not only because we liKe them but because with having them deep fried hopefully it would lessen the chance of illness from them. The shrimp that we were able to... More

We took a chance on this restaurant, even though it looked a little run down. What a pleasant surprise! Two of us had the grouper basket with sweet potato fries. The grouper was fresh and delicious as well as the fries. One of us had a BLT that was loaded with fabulous bacon. Our waitress, Michelle, was great! We'll surely... More

Excellent food but terrible service, it's on the shirt and it's the truth. We arrived during dinner rush and almost walked out as it took a while to get even an initial greeting. Glad we stayed as the food is excellent! Hope service would be better if not as busy?!

My family decided to try Barnacle Bill's tonight after reading mixed reviews on the internet. I'm so glad we did! We had a party of 11 and only waited about 5 minutes for a table. The service was wonderful, and the food was exceptional. Try their scampi. It was delicious.

We ate our last dinner meal at Barnacle Bills. Had the best fried shrimp ever in quite a while. Granddaughter had the catfish and corn on the cob. Key Lime Pie was to die for. Service was great and prices a little steep but they have stay in business with low traffic compared to Gulf Shores. Loved loved this island....first... More

Very overpriced. Food was good but I have had much better. Had to wait for a table. They got two of our orders wrong.

We read many reviews about Barnacles Bill's and was even told by our rental person that their service was terrible. Not so! We got there right at 6:00pm and were promptly greeted and seated. Our waitress was great! The Beer was cold and Margarita's were just right. The Broiled Seafood Platter was much smaller than expected and lacked seasoning. My... More
