Good food, good atmosphere.

This is a good place to eat. Don't forget, if you don't mind sitting in the bar area it is first come first serve and you can order dinner from there. We did this and avoided a longer wait time. The best item ordered was the grilled oysters. Our server told us they would taste like bites of steak... read more

Great food, atmosphere,and service. Big Dave was our server. Friendly and attentive to making sure everything was ok. We had the fried catfish and shrimp. Served hot and plentiful. Best beach dining experience this trip.

My family had dinner at Bayou Bills and enjoyed the food and atmosphere. The seafood was above average (including the grilled fish, the fried fish, and the steamed seafood bucket), but the service was even better. The restaurant also has live alligators that the kids enjoyed seeing. I'd recommend this restaurant for a family seafood outing.

My family wanted seafood, crab legs specifically. Didn't have any luck last year and was determined this year. Bayou Bills has a crab feast for 2, well worth the money and the looks from people when it arrives is funny. Matt our waiter was really awesome. Great atmosphere and reasonably priced. Loved it and hope to go back next time!!!... More

Good for large groups! We had 8 people and it didn't take long to get a seat. They said 30 minute wait but was more like 20. You have to get the grilled oysters! They were incredible! Even the young teenagers in the group tried and liked them. Disappointed in the calamari as they looked like they were purchased prebreaded... More

Best crab legs that I have had in years. Try this place out and get the crabs! Great service and good family environment. They also have gators for the kiddos to pet!

We had a party of 11 at Bayou Bills last night for dinner and were pleasantly pleased!! We were told it was a 45 minute wait....and they got us in with a minute to spare. Clayton was our waiter and did an exceptional job. He knew (with a party of 11) that he was guaranteed a 18% gratuity but went... More

The food was ok. It cost $100 for 3 adults and 3 kids with limited beverages. The meal was average and could be purchased at any chain, but we had been driving for hours and were just happy to sit down and eat. We had fun looking at the alligators in the small pool outside. Kind of "tourist trap".
