Excellent place for seafood. Very satisfied with our dinner experience... I've read some reviews about being pricey. It is but so is everywhere else. I had a broiled seafood platter $25. It was awesome! 6 adults with tip $220. Money well spent!

We were seated within ten minutes of arrival. Oysters good. Loved my dinner. Parmesan Mahi. Drinks always full. LOVED the hush puppies. $1.50 for a basket of them. The kids get buckets and shovels for the beach. Great atmosphere. Put this on you list to hit.

The food and service were great, but just a tad on the expensive side. Went early (5:30) and got right in with a party of 14.

My wife and I first discovered this place 3 year's ago while vacationing in nearby Rosemary Beach. David Ogan was our server, and to say he made our experience enjoyable would be an understatement. He is hands down the most positive and contagious person we have ever met. He was overjoyed to be at work, enthused to share with us... More

The crab bisque is outstanding! We've been two Bayou Bills two years and we're completely satisfied both times. Our server, David, was very helpful and knowledgeable about the menu. Our daughter enjoys seeing and holding the alligators. A great dining experience.

We didn't arrive until late at night so we had no wait. The waitress was great. The watermelon margarita was delicious! I ordered the fish and shrimp combo platter. The shrimp was decent. I didn't really care for the cornmeal type breading on the mahi mahi. My husband ordered the seafood variety platter which he really enjoyed. We both left... More

We had a large party and while we couldn't make a reservation we were seated within 20 minutes of our arrival. Fortunately there are alligators in the front so the kids were kept entertained by looking at them. There were seven of us, four adults and three boys and they have enough large tables that we were seated pretty quickly... More

A great place to eat away from the big crowds of PCB... Loved the atmosphere and very very energetic waiter David! He made the experience over the top!

Our first night in PCB, and my son really wanted some good crab legs. We had driven past Bayou Bill's earlier and there was a big crowd. In usual situations a large crowd is a good sign, but that's different in PCB. The culinary bar is pretty low there with the hordes of tourists hitting the catchy spots, willing to... More
