I had the Southern fried catfish with corn meal breading which was great and my wife had chicken fingers. Both portions were generous and delicious. And our waitress was fantastic.

We ate at Barnacle Bill's twice. The first time, one of us had the Big A** Salad with the grouper, and one had it with the grilled shrimp. It was delicious and filling. Both of us have food allergies and they were very accommodating. The wait staff was excellent. The Big A** salad is an excellent value. Another time during... More

We were hungry after the Estuarium and heading back the long say around. Stopped at Bill's and surprise good apps, food and service... Best fried shrimp of the trip and my daughters loved their burger and fish!

We ordered broiled seafood platters, and were not disappointed. Prices are on the high end, but the food was fresh and flavorful. We ordered margaritas and they were wonderful. The servers/staff are friendly and accommodated our requests.

Food was good but overpriced. Very casual atmosphere. Reviews submitted were right. Key lime pie was delish and worth it though!

Fresh seafood, great view from the bar area. Friendly fast service. Try the Creole Crab Cakes they won't disappoint. Reasonably priced.

This restaurant made it very hard to choose a rating! These folks proudly admit on the back of their tee shirts that service is not their number one priority. The locals we spoke with said this is most certainly "island time". So, that being said, if you want great food without great service, this is the place for you. Three... More

We read the mixed reviews about this restaurant so were pleasantly surprised. The grouper "Basket Case"(fish & chips) was excellent as was my husband's Blackened Grouper sandwich and sweet potato fries. We had an attentive, energetic waitress who regularly checked back to make sure everything was satisfactory. We'll definitely do lunch here again.

With a Van Morrison song playing in the background as we walked through the door of this place, we knew we'd found a good one! Wait staff was terrific, and we felt at home in this restaurant that also seems to be a favorite with the locals! The gumbo, crab legs and grouper lagniappe were all delicious! We were stuffed...
