Excellent lunch

We enjoyed an excellent lobster lunch at Barnacle Billy's, etc., which is next to the faster food Barnacle Billy's. The view is over the water.

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

Our 3rd visit to Barnacle Billy's - just as wonderful as the first two. The food is yummy and the view is perfection. The wait staff is polite and friendly and the rum punch is a must!

I'd read about Barnacle Billy's in an East Coast magazine and I loved the charm of this place. It's been around a long time and we thought it was worth a try. There are two Barnacle Billy's locations next to eat other on Perkin's Cove. One location is more of your site down and have a fancy type dinner, the... More

Food here was good and reasonable. Eat outside to view the boats coming and going. Order at the counter and pick up when they call you. Seafood to hamburgers/hot dogs. Good variety for the whole family

Visited on sister's weekend for dinner, prior to going to the theater. There were 4 in our party. The atmosphere is relaxing and comfortable. The food was very good... loved the scallops! Service was top notch. Left a favorite hat behind though notices only the next day. Since we drove up from Amesbury, the manager kindly dropped in it in... More

We ended up at Barnacle Billy's following a walk on the Marginal Way. Billy's is actually two restaurants nestled in Perkins Cove. You have the ocean on one side and the harbor on the other. You order on the way in and then have a seat outside on the deck overlooking the harbor, or inside where there are two fireplaces... More

End of the season so nowhere else to stop for dinner in Perkins covers. Food was ok service was ok bar was ok. Nothing spectacular but nothing stood out as bad. A little pricey for it being just ok.
