OK

We were greeted and seated right away and our waitress was friendly. The restaurant has a very laid back atmosphere and is very old and run down. Menu variety good. The fried seafood was OK. The shrimp tasted the iodine. The green beans are the best I've ever had.

Went for dinner tonight. Service was awesome. Dinner wad cooked to perfection. I had steamed shrimp with salad and baked potato. My husband had grouper. I was disappointed because they no longer have oysters on the appetizer menu. We will definitely be back.

Crab claws were burnt. All of them were stuck together. Fish was deffinatly not fresh as advertised. And service was beyond awful. Save your money and time and visit jts or the island rain bow

My wife and I stopped here for dinner. Although we were served quickly and efficiently, we felt service lacked in friendliness or casualness. Food was very good - we had grilled shrimp and daily special of stuffed snapper. Key lime pie dessert was great as well. A little pricey - after tip, we paid $70 for the two of us... More

We went with a large group and they accommodated us extremely well! Their motto is "Great food, service sucks." While the service isn't AMAZING it by no means sucks. Our waitress was great and very nice! Great food too!

The food was disgusting and way overpriced. You definitely don't get near enough food for your money. The restaurant looks nasty and the chairs you sit in, well, they look like someone pulled the plastic lawn chairs out of their yard and threw them at a table for you to sit in.

We realize that seafood can be pricy and if it's good we don't mind! My husband ordered the grouper, I ordered the pick two with shrimp and deviled crabs. It came with 6 shrimp that were good. The deviled crabs didn't have any crab in them that I could find and they tasted like straight old bay seasoning. My husband's... More

I read the reviews both good & bad and I was prepared to like this place. Service was good, but food...well, I guess it was an attempt at Cajun, but everything was hit with a cayenne seasoning- so much so that I couldn't really taste my food. I had stuffed crab. I couldn't tell if there was even crab in... More

Best seafood in a very laid back atmosphere. Great service, quiet atmosphere, reasonable priced meal and if you like seafood then this is where you need to be. I would highly recommend Barnacle Bill's. It is also right on the island!!!

The seafood was fantastic. As always , this restaurant felt like we were eating dinner with friends. ALL restaurants on the Island feel this way. The owners are at the restaurant & they're determined to make their restaurants your favorite!
