Outstanding Chargrilled Oysters and Blackened Red Fish

We come to Bayou Bill's Crab House every year on our way West and have never been disappointed with the food or service. This year, however, we have a mixed response.

Our family moved to this area in 1989 and have been loyal to BB through the changes in ownership, the fire, rebuilding, and current time. Everyone who visits us knows it was our favorite place to go. Our last visit several weeks ago, and last might be the operative word in this sentence was sad. Since WHEN is catfish seafood?... More

I recently took my daughter and family out for her birthday. Our servers name was Natasha. She was so happy and pleasant. I had the blackened redfish which was the best redfish I have ever had. It was cooked and seasoned perfectly. Everyone in our party thoroughly enjoyed their dinners. My granddaughter said that her chicken tenders were the best... More

I'm a local who dines out often. I've eaten here several times and am never disappointed. The grilled oysters are fantastic and the tuna Orleans was cooked perfectly. Highly recommend!

Our golf group (12) ate here for the third time this evening. The food and service were excellent. As usual, we called ahead and requested the large table with the "Lazy Susan" which is perfect for a group of 10-16. Our server (Mike) did an outstanding job and even worked with us to provide individual checks for which we made... More

Food was mediocre at best. Chargrilled oysters not cooked all the way and small shrimp on the fried shrimp platter. Wife got the grouper which was served in pieces and drowning in butter sauce. Very overpriced for what you get!

Sat in the bar on Friday night, the bartenders were fast and efficient which was a pleasant surprise considering how busy the bar was. We had a few delicious margaritas and grilled oysters to start. I highly recommend the grilled oysters they are out of this world. For dinner we had the crab feast, which was HUGE!! I would recommend... More

The char-grilled oysters were the best I've had! My daughter tried an oyster for the very 1st time and loved it! Everything was awesome. The Manager, Robert, was extremely nice and actually gave me 6 char-grilled oysters free to try. Highly recommend this place.
