Our last visit wasn't that great with a new waitress. However, the manager remedied our issues. Every time we've gone in the past, we had a wonderful experience. Good food, and a lot to choose from. Expect to pay more, but that's the nature of beach restaurants. Large amount of seating for guests and the kitchen is fast. Love this... More

We went in with a group of 8, consisting of 4 adults and 4 children. We were greeted by David our waiter, who was friendly and fast. Our appetizers came out quickly and tasted wonderful. Their Roumalade sauce was great! The seafood gumbo is probably the best restaurant gumbo, I've ever had. We had the crab combo for two, which... More

We had dinner but didn't arrive until most of the crowd was gone. So we didn't experience any wait! There was something for everyone!

Bayou Bill's seems to be a favorite of tourists like us judging from the long line waiting to get in the night we visited (we came right at opening time and walked right in - but an hour later, the line of folks waiting was 50-60 long). Our family of four paid more $100 for our meal but was disappointed.... More

Had a great friendly fast server (Dave) - made our last meal at the beach fantastic! His suggestion of a 4 pound platter of crab legs made us all full and happy. Can't wait to go again :)

It was just okay. Mediocre. Won't go back. The potatoes weren't hot. Barely any fish on the poboy. I got the parmesan mahi. It was blah.

My husband and I went to dinner recently. He had the fried shrimp dinner. I had the grilled shrimp. Both of our meals were very tasty, and the hush puppies were the best I've had in a long, long time. The server was very nice and the restaurant was nice and clean looking even though they were very busy. We... More

Food was excellent. We arrived at 5 PM when they opened and had not wait. When we left about 6:30 PM folks queued up waiting.

My son and I decided to try Bayou Bills our first night in Panama City. Several friends had recommended it. We had a long day traveling to get to our vacation spot and it was the first time for both of us to be at Panama City Beach. Needless to say we were pretty late getting to the restaurant but...
