Typical beach vacation seafood restaurant

Vacationing in Miamar Beach saw Bayou Bills as we were coming into town. Looking for a place to get sea food decided to try them. They are nothing special, a typical resort area restaurant with the standard fares, slightly over priced as vacation restaurant tend to be compared to what you would... read more

Kaylee was our waitress and she was a really great one. Our food was excellent and arrived at a short 15 minutes. I highly suggest Bayou Bills.

We love to go there for their charbroiled oysters. Serve alcohol. Good wait staff. Friendly greeting and overall good service and food. I would recommend this restaurant. It is a stand alone restaurant on north side of route 98 with adequate parking.

Great place to eat. Great seafood. Get there before 6pm or longer waits. Everything was delicous. Had the poor boy shrimp sandwich. Wife had steamed shrimp with seasoned vegetables. Kids had steamed crab claws and fried oysters.

My family visited Bayou Bill's and Erik W. provided the best service we have had at any restaurant. It did not feel like the restaurant was very busy, but there was a line outside and every table was full. It didn't feel as though it was busy because Erik didn't rush us at all, and also listened to comments that... More

We had dinner here for my wife's birthday. We ordered the grilled garlic and Parmesan Oysters for an appetizer. They were amazing! The rest of our meals were great too. The blackened Amber Jack was very good. Also, try the Crab and Corn Bisque.
