David was our server. He exceeded expectations & created a great night out with the kids. I would have liked to have seen more vegetables on the menu, but if you're looking for a classic beach restaurant - this is it.

Before coming to Florida for the first time, I thought I didn't like seafood. In the past, eating at places with seafood, I thought it smelled terrible and the fish tasted funny! When this place was recommended by someone, I instantly looked for a non-seafood meal to order. Unfortunately, there weren't very many options. Instead I figured I could branch... More

While there was a large number of people waiting to be seated they have a great system in place and we only waited about 30 minutes on a Saturday night. We were also waiting outside but a drink cart came around often, which was very nice. Service was great, food was average but pricey.

We always make our way to Bayou Bill's during our annual family 4th of July vacations. It is a great place for casual gatherings of large groups. Our kids love the crab claws and taking home the souvenir buckets. Even though the restaurant was quite crowded, David provided great service and kept our large group happy. We will be back... More

Blackened Mahi was over cooked with cold broccoli on the side. Blackened Grouper was seriously undercooked with a strange smoky flavor. Crab cakes and shrimp point-boy were both good. Been here a dozen times over the last 10 years, and this blackened fish was the worst ever...very disappointing! Perhaps the poor food preparation was related to us being served at... More

Was the best seafood we' ve eaten in PC and some of the best, freshest restaurant food we've had anywhere period. Great family atmosphere, no long wait time and the staff was incredible-especially our waiter, David. He was fast, polite and very funny. Couldn't recommend this place more, especially if you want to steer clear of the madhouses.
