Just visited with my in laws yesterday evening and all was spectacular. We started off with blackened alligator, the crab dip and a cup of the crab and corn bisque (which is about the size of a bowl at any other restaurant you frequent). The alligator was blackened to perfection and served over a bed of rice which complimented the... More

Enjoy your wait time while touching a baby gator to watching the big ones in the tiny pool-poor little gators. Inside is nice. Cool fish tank, notice the fake jelly fish and lionfish? Food was very good. Most of the fish on the menu is Mahi. I had the grilled fish on salad and it was a large two piece... More

Loved how Bayou Bill's is great for large groups and families. The table we sat at was a 10 person round table with a lazy susan in the middle. Kids love Bayou Bills because you can hold a small alligator and take a picture with it ($6). Food was good, service was good, and get there early because it gets... More

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
