Excellent Experience

My party of 4 (+baby) had an amazing experience. First, the place is a bit out of the way, but totally worth the drive from the strip. Best meal we've had during our time in PCB. Service was wonderful. Very attentive, even to our baby. Drinks were never empty and our waitress constantly checked... read more

We went to this place after reading that they served grilled oysters, our new discovery for this trip. We were not disappointed and also polished off a dozen raw. Really good (large, flavorful) oysters compared to a couple of places we've been. We also had a wonderful dinner there. Wife had the special New Orleans style Grouper and I had... More

This place is huge, obviously set up for big groups of family tourists. Looks like a Red Lobster inside. Despite being surrounded by excellent seafood, our fish dish was obviously a previously frozen filet. And it was served with rice pilaf, the most uninspired of sides. They don't appear to have outdoor seating and they are not beach front. Not... More

It has become a tradition for our family to eat at Bayou Bills on our trips to the Gulf. We have usually eaten at the Santa Rosa location until last year when we ate at the PCB location for the first time. We returned here again this past May. The grandsons enjoyed seeing the alligators at the entrance. We start... More

Checked out their menu on line and looked like they had plenty of seafood which is what we were after. Fun to look at their live gators and the big stuffed one inside made a couple of cool pictures. Great décor on inside - would have never known by the rather plain outside of the building. And then there was... More

Spending the week with a friend in P.C.B. and decided on dinner here. None of us had ever been before. Great experience from start to finish! Began with the president's margaritas (very good), and had the grilled oysters & crab dip for 2. Oysters were out of this world and crab dip was delicious. Was going to order the blue... More

Very good food, great atmosphere, and good service. Bills has a great variety of seafood. Servers are there for your needs and do all they can to make your meal a memorable one. Prices are very reasonable which makes Bayou Bills an excellent choice for a meal.
