Always a good choice. Lots to see, and get the feel for Perkins Cove and the area. Inside or outside dining is available, and a cocktail, late afternoon on the deck is a joy The area offers lots of history and the fishermen bringing in their catch is fun for all ages to watch.

This is a very good restaurant, and it is located right in the middle of Perkin's Cove. There are a variety of foods offered, and we have not been disappointed when going to Barnacle Billy's!!

There is a restaurant and an outdoor take out bar. We enjoy the restaurant. We have seen the elder George and Barbara Bush there. The food is family and Maine normal. Lobster, steaks, chicken et al. It has a full bar. If it is a warm evening you can sit outside on their patio, however, be warned of the biting... More

Located on the water at Perkins Cove with outside patio. Valet parking wonderful asset and courteous..convenient to shop after as well great selection of seafood apps and lunch specials and variety of drinks. Again staff very accomodating. Only downside might be space..too many tables together and chairs could be more comfy.price little on hi side but good.

Fantastic setting and wonderful tasting lobster. I did expect the lobster rolls to be a bit larger for the money, but it did taste divine. I could have easily eaten two!

Great seasonal seafood joint with excellent local fresh lobster rolls. The outside patio is the place to eat, plenty of shade and great views of the port, boats and the drawbridge. One of the benefits of Bill's is the free valet parking, parking on Perkins Cove can be a bear at times. I've had the lobster roll 3 times now... More

We spent 2 nights in Perkins Cove arriving in the evening the first day. The motel clerk suggested Barnacle Billy's for dinner. It was a short walk across the bridge from our hotel, so no driving necessary.The interior is nautical and tastefully decorated. We could see the water from the windows although it was dark. I ordered the fried scallops.... More
