I likes the crab legs. Very family oriented restaurant. Also has alligators out front for entertainment. I will visit again.

Easy to find, with an acre of free parking. The building is huge, including the alligator pen. The interior is interesting too, especially for kids. Service is prompt and efficient. The menu was extensive for the seafood lover. We enjoyed the fried fish, but only after trying the grilled oysters. Everything was fresh and tasty. I recommend Bill's; we'll be... More

This was our first visit to Bayou Bill's. We really enjoyed the entire experience. The steamed crab was excellent, as well as the steamed clams, mussels, and oysters. But what made the evening was the service we received from Nina. She was the epitome of professional service combined with charming personality. Her timing was flawless as we never lacked for...

My entire family, at the table, that night, is in the restaurant business. And as seafood goes, its pretty good! The best dish on the table was the grilled oysters, by far. My daughter and I split the crab sampler, eighty dollars of pure heaven, until you tried the corn and potatoes, then not so much. Everyone at our table... More

Everything about this place was just OK. I would not recommend this to any friends of mine. The building was neat and my kiddos loved the alligators outside but the food was not good. We paid $12 for a shrimp appetizers that had 5 pieces of shrimp and not very tasty. The kids pizza was awful mine kids wouldn't eat... More

We go to this restaurant often where the food is great. However last night we were blown away by the service. Our server, Nina, was outstanding. He was attentive as well as extremely charming. If you go, ask for her. We will next time.

Located just off of the Back Beach Road at the West end of PC Beach. They have both fried and broiled seafood, a full bar, good service. Decent menu with many choices. Example: Fried shrimp w/ slaw and fries. Broiled shrimp w/ slaw and baked potato. Our family of 5 got a variety of dishes and all were good. Casual... More

The food, excellent. The waiter, friendly. There was no wait whatsoever and appeared to be full of locals, which is a great sign. It cost me $17 for a plate of four huge blue crabs, which I though was a decent price and they were great!. It came with new potatoes and corn on the cob. I will definitely make... More
