Billy's has an awesome location but if your cheap at all you'll be disappointed. Your paying for the atmosphere not the food. Stick with the clams and lobsters and rum punch anything else and you'll be posting a bad review here.

Barnacle Billy's used to be good...but not anymore.
Food was not that good at all. Clam Chowder used to be the best there, but watered down incredibly!
Service was not that good, either.
Had to wait 20 minutes, and why? Don't know! When we finally got seated, there were many vacant tables in the restaurant.
Sorry, Billy, your restaurant needs some work!

I met my friend in Maine ( I live in NY) who had flown out from Alaska and we enjoyed a beautiful walk on the path along the Ogunquit beach and stopped to eat at the nicer restaurant for a beautiful lobster dinner with a great view of the harbor on a sunny fall day. The service was great and the fresh Lobster was Perfect ! I look forward to the next time I go to Maine.

Rum punch and lobster don't get any better than this! Great casual atmosphere, expert preparation, good service.

Lovely setting in Perkins Cove we chose the etc restaurant rather than the original which is a little bit more 'self service'. We ate lobster which was lovely and the service was good but the views of the harbour and Perkins Cove setting was the show stopper!
