Our family really enjoyed supper at Bayou Bill's. The food was excellent and the service was also great. My two kids also loved watching the live alligators swim around in the outside exhibits. They even had a small, one year old, alligator that everyone could pet and take pictures. A great experience all around. We will definitely go back for... More

The food was great (best in PCB in my opinion). The chargrilled oysters are as good as any you'll find in New Orleans. The servers were quite friendly, but really slow. It took forever to get our food on two separate occasions.

I went to this restaurant with my one year old, the woman who showed us to our table seemed annoyed that we were there. Our waitress was terrible although she wasn't unfriendly, I could tell she didn't care about our table because she felt like she couldn't flirt for a bigger tip. I asked for Apple juice for my baby... More

This place is the best seafood restaurant I've visited on the island. Great friendly service. The chargrilled oysters are delicious. The broiled scallops were amazing. I'll definitely go back there again. They've also got live gators there and a baby you can touch.

Great food and great atmosphere! This was our second visit and was there this past weekend. We were a group of ten and was seated quickly. Our server was awesome, she got all of our orders correct and kept our drinks full. Food was delicious and more than most of us could eat. Also had a nice kids menu.

Great place to eat! Food is always good and service is excellent, especially if your wait person is David. We try to get there when we are in the area. Try the Blackened Grouper - it's wonderful.

My husband & I ordered the steamed dinner for 2 with crab legs. The plate was piled high with crab legs! They were delicious. The service at the restaurant was the best we had all weekend. From being seated to leaving the restaurant, everyone was very welcoming and helpful. They have alligators outside, & you can even take your pic... More

I'm given this a 2 star only bc their alligator appetizer was good and the waiter was polite and friendly. Apparently we all got the wrong stuff that this place is known to be good for. I guess we needed to have gotten the crab legs( which I think is a whole lot of work for nothing)My sister and my... More
