great meal overall, we split a seafood platter for two and had more than enough food for both of us. I had the crab & corn bisque and it was fantastic also. We did think it was a little pricey for what it was but the food was tasty!

The over-priced food was greasy and not good. Service was worse. $16 for a small serving of tiny crab claws as an appetizer and the fries with the entre were too greasy to eat. I was surprised to spot Soft Shell Crab on the menu and since it's a favorite of mine asked the waitress if it was frozen since... More

We chose Bayou Bills for dinner because I had checked out the menus in Panama City and it seemed to be the only placed that offered broiled seafood platters. Everyone else seems to want to fry everything, which they also offered fried platters. The service was great the atmosphere was also good. My only complaint was that I wished they... More

We chose Bayou Bills Crab House based on the reviews of this restaurant and others in Panama City Beach. It was great! Very nice large restaurant. I first noticed how clean and appropriately decorated it was. The service was very friendly and prompt. I had the fried shrimp and fish (Mahi Mahi) and it was super. The hushpuppies are the... More

This eatery is nice looking with lots of room and alligators outside for the kiddies to see but the meal I had which was mahi was not good quality at all and I could not finish it, the salad sucked too., the tea was undrinkable to boot. to me this is a tourist trap restaurant and way over priced. sorry...

we were very pleased with Bayou Bill's and can't wait to go back! Upon arriving we were immediately seated. Our waiter, David, was one of the best waiters we've ever had. He always always had drinks and he continued checking on us to make sure our experience was great! We didn't have to wait long for our dinner and it... More

Absolutely beautiful place to eat great seafood. Plenty of room for large groups. Went about 7pm on Saturday of Labor Day weekend and was immediately seated. An abundance of crab dishes, fried and broiled seafood. Fried shrimp were large, fresh, tasty and plentiful. Parmesan Mahi Mahi was great too. Not a good place for anyone that is not in the... More

Eating at this restaurant was an old family tradition for my husband's family. This was my first time to go. I loved that they had live alligators out front and for $5 you can take a picture with a baby alligator. The atmosphere inside was fun and there are lots of interesting things on the walls to look at. A... More

Are here with 2 small children and 4 adults, one who has a good allergy. As soon as we sat down, our waiter David greeted us warmly and made us feel so welcome. The service was great, and even though we had to send one thing back due to the good allergy, it was quickly fixed. We enjoyed the fried... More
