Excellent food lousy service. The waitress took our order and that's it I had to ask another waitress for lemons and had to find my own napkins. After which she gave us our ticket which I took to the cashier myself. I still tipped her, believe me she didn't deserve a tip. To many other restaurants in St. Augustine to... More

Excellent food lousy service from the gal with short hair. I tipped her still, way way more than she deserved. Had to wait on myself & pay the cashier on my own.

It has been as many as 20 or 25 or 30 years since I've been here. Today's fried shrimp were perfectly delightful! Nice size! Definitely competitive with the other fried shrimp establishments around here. Cucumber salad had feta cheese in it. Nice touch! Service was quick and cheerful. I'm so glad I came back here and gave it a try... More

The shrimp is delicious and the only good thing there. Most of the food was O.K. and did not have much seasoning and tasted quite plain. The options in the menu sound appealing to taste but when I ordered my meal I tasted hardly any seasoning. Service wasn't bad and the restaurant was clean. The Cheese Grits side do not... More

Food had no flavor. We ordered the full steamed shrimp and onion rings for appetizers, which neither had flavor, plus they were served after the entrees. Our entrees were The teriyaki shrimp, hickory chicken, seafood combo with fried shrimp and fish and chicken tenders. All we're less than okay except for the tenders. Hickory park was less than appealing and... More

When we travel this way, we always make a stop here for dinner. It never disappoints. Always fresh and portions that usually means a to go box is needed. Cheryl was a wonderful waitress tonight.

We walked over from a Francis Field event on a Saturday afternoon. The staff was extremely pleasant and seated us immediately. The menu is extensive with mostly shellfish & fish. We had heard so much about the fried shrimp that I tried the trio. the lunch portion came with 6 plump shrimp with their own sauces for each preparation. Lunch... More

Decent restaurant and about average for Florida surf and turf. I don't get Florida in the respect to seafood. Second only to Alaska for shore line but I've had better seafood in Bozeman Montana. That is typical for Florida. Maybe because I am from the West coast and my wife is from Virginia, we expect more from a seafood place.... More

the wife and I are visiting St Augustine, Fla. Our first choice for a seafood dinner was packed with a 2 hr wait. So we tried Barnacle Bill's. We were very happy with our meals. I had a fish, scallop, shrimp combo. My wife had butterfly shrimp. Both meals were great. Very happy with our meals.
