Great for large parties.

While they don't take reservations or call ahead seating, they have enough room to accommodate. Our party of 11 was seated and had food within 30 minutes. Food was very good - fried shrimp, grilled shrimp, shrimp Alfredo, grilled tuna, blackened tuna - no complaints! Friendly, efficient... read more

Arrived at 450 and a line was outside. Seafood was mediocre at best. Baked potato tasted overlooked as was corn, very bland. French fries tasted like they had been poured out of a freezer bag . Live alligators in pool outside. And a 6$ photo op with baby alligator. Save your money.

Great dining experience. Wait staff was very attentive. Be there early as the restaurant fills very quickly after opening. They have a small alligator farm viewable from the waiting to be seated area for the kids. Not fancy but the food was the best. I will definitely eat there again on my next trip to Panama City Beach,

This place has a very impressive menu and a great variety. A little pricey though. I got the parmesan grouper which was very good but they went a little heavy on the spices so beware. I would go back. They do tend to be busy so be prepared for a wait.

We were only in town for a few days so we wanted to be sure we ate good while we were there. Bayou Bill's did not let us down, by far the best food we ate while there. We shared the seafood platter for two and we had an order of snow crab legs. We cleaned our plates for sure.... More

We had a great time here. Wait time was less than than they quoted. Service was good, food was good. Would definitely go back and would recommend. We shared several appetizers. Crab dip was fishy and no one liked. Everyone enjoyed the gator and kids ate up the cheese curds. I heard no complaints from anyone about their meal.

Our family group of seven ate dinner on a Thursday night. We waited less than thirty minutes for a table. This is a great place for large parties. You don't feel crammed in, and there's plenty of room. We got the drink special, buy three get a fourth free. The daiquiris were good. Ordered the calamari and mushrooms as appetizers.... More

This just happened to be the closest restaurant to the hotel we were staying at, so we gave it a try. We were very happy with the welcoming décor, waitress was very friendly, and the food was good too. A little out of the way if you are staying near the center of Panama City Beach, but worth the trip.

Went there on a Sunday night late and was told a 15 minute wait. Within 5 minutes we were sitting down. Waitress was on point she recommended several items on the menu, which we tried and was amazing. Highly recommended, and the gators are an awesome site for the kids
