Large menu with lots of seafood options. I had the scallops but wished it had come with rice or something. Fried shrimp was good. Crab legs was good. Service was ok.

For a number of years I have returned to Barnacle Bill's restaurant on Dauphin Island. Each time I am pleased with the food and service. Fresh fish, crab cakes, sizable shrimp. Sweet potato fries. Plenty of beer to wash it all down. Servers are quick to serve and thorough. Sometimes we sit in front of the window and watch the... More

We came to Bill's by boat. Their marina is very well outfitted, with clean, new restrooms, amenable fueling crewmembers and a live-bait shop at the end of the pier. We had our adorable "third child" with us, a well-behaved Boykin Spaniel. He's better-behaved than most people and is a teetotaler! Anyway, they did offer us to-go dishes and they were... More

We went to Barnacle Bill's for dinner, after eating sea food all week we decided to get burgers, so glad we did! They were delicious. We had potato skins for an appetizer, there was a generous serving that fed 3 adults! We will def go back! Waitresses were very friendly too, despite what their work shirts say! ;)

Mediocre place with mediocre food and service. Nothing fancy at all. If you are taking a family be prepared to drop a pretty penny. Beer selection is just basic Michelin ultra, bud light, corona. Sister got a couple strawberry daqs and loved them. It wasn't a bad place to eat by no means but wasn't the best either.

Horrific experience, awful people and service. I would not recommend this place to my worst enemy. Stay away. They turned business away and are ruining any type of positive (doubtful any positive) reputation they may have with the locals.

Food was mediocre, service was slow. Declined a lot in the last few years. Used to be much, much better.

The seafood here is amazing. I personally love their calamari. However be for warned you are paying for the food not the service. Though I must say the service has definitely improved a lot over the years! Way to go guys!

We've been vacationing on Dauphin Island for several years now, but it wasn't until last fall that we went to Barnacle Bills because a family member did during our summer visit and just raved about it. So, in spite of the reviews here, we gave it a try for the first time last fall, and have been back several times... More

We really enjoyed our dinner and the waitress was great! 6 of us and most had just come from a day of charter boat fishing. Food was served timely and no complaints from my group. Crawfish flatbread really good. Seafood pasta looked yummy and I had the special which was stuffed snapper. Delicious!
