So good we came back!

This restaurant was recommended by our condo owner and it did not disappoint. In fact, we enjoyed it so much we came back a second time. We had 2 different servers (Brandi and David ) whom were both friendly and gave great advice about what to order. The crab and corn chowder was absolutely... read more

Our bill was $100 for 2 of us and I'm left wondering what for. I ordered the grouper and shrimp, it was ok but I wouldn't order it again. The batter tasted like corn dog batter. My husband had one of the crab buckets..he said he liked it even though the oysters were way over cooked and dry. The decor... More

Just got back from Panama City and this was one of the restaurants we went to. We usually have decent luck at Bayou Bill's but this time the food was just ok. Wife and I both got the Grouper Parmesan and it was nothing special. Past experiences there the food was better. We did enjoy the stuffed mushrooms as appetizer... More

Our server was wonderful. I ordered the shrimp and crab plate and my date ordered the shrimp. The shrimp was rubbery (a result of cooking them for too long) and the crab had the consistency of Elmer's Glue, again from cooking them for waaaaaaay too long. Seriously, Blue Crabs only need to be cooked for 15 minutes and these seemed... More

Went to Bayou Bill's with my brother for dinner in PCB. We were seated immediately and shortly after our waitress arrived to take our drink order. When she returned with our drinks we placed our order. That was the last we saw of her until our dinner arrived 25 minutes later. I ordered fish and my brother had shrimp/crab. I... More

This is for tourists. there is a small pool area with live alligator. The food was average for a seafood restaurant but did offer a few select items not found at other restaurants. I had fried shrimp and they were good with a light batter. Husband had fried soft shell crab that were very good. He also had the seafood... More

Nice, friendly family resteraunt one of the better places we've been too in the area. Mostly fried entrees but prepared well. The crab cakes were very good. Large portions, we had many leftovers. We went on a Sunday evening and it was very small crowd. They also make a naive margarita. They have many large tables to accommodate larger groups.

We walked out of this restaurant after 10 minutes of waiting for our server to even acknowledge us. Wouldn't be so mad if she had at least said I'll be with you in a minute and to top it off at least 5 other servers had circled us seeing us just sitting there. I'm a server and I can give... More
