Spectacular View in Perkins Cove!!!

There is some confusion here because the reviewers are reviewing 2 restaurants....there is Barnacle Billy's and then there is Barnacle Billy's Etc. Right next to each other, same owner but different. Barnacle Billy's has been in Perkins Cove forever (I went there in the early 70's) It is more... read more

Very friendly feel here, and it's the sit down restaurant not the order at the counter location, just around the corner. Great wait staff, pleasant outside seating overlooking the bay. Lobster roll is a must eat at lunchtime, not loaded with mayo, but just the right amount. Lobster was plentiful and tasty as it was fresh. The fish and chips... More

And a lobster roll! Casual dining on the roof deck or patio with a view of Perkins Cove was awesome. Great selection of easy and yummy dinner and ice cream options.

This restaurant has one of the best locations in Perkins Cove. If only the food was as good as the view ?

We went there based on a recommendation. The chowders were o.k. My husband really enjoyed his fish, but I was disappointed with my salad. Very small portions. I was expecting a larger salad.

I have been going to Maine for 33 years and I have never had a bad meal at Barnacle Billy's. They are all the same high quality meal. Their steamers are by far the cleanest and sweetest in Maine. Their fried seafood is sweet and tender. Their hamburger is excellent. I can't imagine a trip to Maine without Barnacle Billy's.... More

We came here for a late lunch looking for something that would tide us over until dinner. I had an enormous chicken caesar salad, which was delicious. My husband had chowder & a salad. The chowder was definitely thinner than expected but still tasty. The nice view and decent prices make up for any shortcomings.

We stopped in for a quick lunch on our day of arrival in Ogunquit. We were pleasantly surprised! We were seated on the outdoor pario no problem and enjoyed a beautiful view of the water. I ordered the shrimp roll and my boyfriend ordered the lobster roll. He said it was the best lobster roll he had ever had. And... More
