We had a party of 21! Although they do not take reservations, they were able to seat us together (3 separate tables within close proximity), as we had called ahead. One waitress, with a helper for serving, and there were no mess ups or delays with any of the orders. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was so enjoyable.... More

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
