One of the best waiters that I have ever had. He was not shy, however he was not overbearing either. Kept us in good spirits all night.

We visited Bayou Bill's Crab House on a Friday night to celebrate my birthday. Our waiter was David, and he provided some of the best service I have ever received. We ordered drinks, and he brought me two from the very beginning, then when I emptied one, he brought me another full one so that I had two again. We... More

I am a huge Alaskan King Crab lover and was excited to try out Bayou Bill's as we are staying nearby and I read a lot of great reviews. The Alaskan King Crab was a little pricey, but it always is! I was shocked by how many legs I was given, so it was worth every cent. Another huge plus... More

The facility is a large impressive stand alone structure with lots of open space surrounding it.The interior is very spacious and the decor is tasteful and comfortable. The staff were pleasant and courteous and the selections we made (Grouper and Mahi Mahi) were excellent. This place is a far cry from what you might usually encounter for a fish restaurant... More

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.
