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

Best Crablegs I've ever had! Our server, Nina, was very nice and very fast. The Crablegs were hot and broke open perfectly. We will definitely return.

Clean, attractive building. Service was OK, had better and had worse. Food wasn't that great alttle tasteless. Not much food for the money. The grilled oysters were good. Won't be back. Not sure why it gets great reviews.

We were really hoping this would be good, but it was not at all. The main courses we had (Mahi and catfish) were fair. But the fries and slaw are inedible. I don't understand serving subpar sides. Also, the kids chicken fingers were the greasiest I have ever seen. I don't mind paying for good food, but this was really... More

We just stopped in for dinner and were extremely happy with our decision. First it was cool to have the gator pond out front! The dinner was superb! Nice big filets of Grouper and Mahi. Amazing steak, tender, juicy and chargrilled delicious. Our son said it was the first time his wife ever ate the whole steak at the restaurant!... More

Every trip to the beach for the past 15 years includes a dinner at Bayou Bills. We always ask to be seated at one of David's tables. He is outgoing, entertaining and professional. He's like a member of the family. The food and service is always great. They don't need the alligators to draw a crowd.
