Best part for the kids was the alligators out front. To me this was to us just another normal fried and grilled fish place. The hushpuppies and grilled oysters stood out and service was good. Otherwise I thought the quality of the food was ok versus the high prices we paid to eat here.

Enjoyed two fantastic dinners with family. Fried shrimp dinner and blackened Mahi were great. The service was stupendous, the place is always clean and prices were fair, for what you get.

Have been to Bayou Bill's several times and each time was a positive experience. There is a wide ranging menu and a full service bar. All the wait staff has been pleasant and attentive. The food is quite good and they almost always have 3 specials. Their raw oysters are fresh and clean. The char-grilled oysters are outstanding. Have never... More

This place is awesome, great crew, beautiful location. Best seafood in Panama city Beach Florida. Quite a few alligators floating out front too.

Came here specifically for the Crab Feast for 2, and we felt overall it was worth it. The Feast is $81, feeds 2 or 3 people easily, about 4 pounds of various crab - king, snow, blue. The king and snow were excellent - cooked well, not skimpy or small pieces. Blue crab was only OK. We had 4 blue... More

I have eaten here many times in the past, but the last couple of times when I have been there with a big group, service and food quality have been lacking. Since the tip is automatic, the server was nonexistent. Food was brought out at different times so that all of us could not enjoy our meal together. And I'm... More

We went here in our last night of vacation because we had people who wanted both oysters and crab legs. It's a little pricey, but no more than the rest of the restaurants in the area. All of 30A is a little pricey. The food and service were both good. The crab feast for two is absolutely huge.

Went for an early dinner wanting local oysters and blue crab. Oysters were good but a bit pricy at $18 dozen (had oysters the following night for half the price). Blue crab was good, served with corn on cob and small red potatoes. Waiter was friendly and helpful. Felt sorry for poor gators in small pool outside.

This is a must when visiting PCB each year. The restaurant is a little out from the beach but is great. Everything is always great. Food is excellent and the drinks are too. You can have your pic made outside with a small live alligator. Great for the kiddos. I had the broiled seafood platter and it was out of... More
