Barnacle Billy's is a must when you visit Ogunquit! The food is fantastic. The lobster is a no-brainer, but we've had other dishes on the menu and they were all delicious. If you have room for dessert, you must try the key lime pie! I highly recommend sitting outside on their deck - you get a beautiful view of the... More

I've been coming to Ogunquit for years just to eat at Barnacle Billy's and walk the Marginal Way. One of my favorite summer activities is spending an afternoon at BB's outdoor deck with friends enjoying steamers, lobster, and drinks. Lobster is one of my favorite foods and nobody does it better than Billy's. I don't know what they do that... More

Had lunch with friends here driving south towards home. It's very expensive and in a very crowded area, but the outdoor seating and deck looks absolutely beautiful. I would go back just to sit outside and have some of their delicious chowder.

Very relaxed atmosphere, grab a Rum Punch sit on the deck and relax with a wonderful view. When your hungry order a bowl of steamed clams or a burger and kick back! Staff treats everyone like family, a must experience in OGT. Don't forget to try the garlic bread it's awesome!

The rum punch is something I dream about during cold chicago winters. Never had food there I didn't like, Steamers are exceptional as is the crab roll. Why even go to Ogunquit if you're not going to go to Billy's?!?!

First place we go each year when we get to Maine and then we proceed to eat many lunches or dinners there. The lobsters are always fresh and the view of the cove is charming. Servers are mostly college students so we seldom see our favorites more than one season. Perkins Cove is EXTREMELY crowded both with people and cars... More

If you like lobster, you don't need to pass up Barnacle Billy's when you are here. Very reasonable prices and the finest lobster meals.

I always enjoy Perkins Cove and Barnacle Billy's (Dinning Room). They always have the best Maine Lobster and the butter is always so rich and sweet. Cost has varied from visit to visit- but always worth it. Just get there before November 1st! Befor They close for the winter.
