Exceptional service

Great food tonight and exceptional service from our server David. We visit Panama City Beach every year and make sure to visit Bayou Bill's. I remember David's outstanding personality and attentive service from previous years. He made our dining experience exceptional. Lisa - Minnesota

A long time since we were here and sadly the quality has gone down. Oysters are still good but the fish quality is not. Being served partly defrosted tasteless "red fish" in a $26 entrée is bad enough but when I told the waitress her reply was "that's great hon". We will not be back.

Hands down the best seafood in Panama City Beach! The experience was amazing and the service was nothing short of that. David was our server and he definitely did not fail to impress. If you're looking for crab legs, don't even waste your time elsewhere! Drinks are very reasonably priced, and the portions are more than enough. Live gators make... More

We had been to Bayou Bills in previous visits to the area and it was usually quite good. We went back expecting a similar experience and we were disappointed. My husband had the grilled oysters and he said they were very delicious, but I had the grouper and I must say it was only average. For $26.00 I expected it... More

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 in on us. Ambience was nice... 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
