The food was good and the service was quick! I was able to find some gluten free items. My kids enjoyed their chicken fingers that came in a sand bucket with a shovel.

We had our annual meal at Bayou Bill's during Spring Break. The seafood is always great. We had crab cakes, crab bisque, fish sandwiches and oysters on the half shell. Staff is very friendly and it's a good family atmosphere. We will return next year.

Kyle was the most outstanding server. Completely changed the course of our meal based on his recommendations and he did not disappoint. Secret tip: try the grilled oysters and ask for bread for dipping. 5 stars to Kyle!!

This is a great place to go with the kids. The food is fantastic and the service is great. The kids have fun taking pictures with the pirate and alligator.

Very good crab. Ordered 2 lbs snow crab and share 1 dinner. Couldn't eat it all. Pie was outstanding.

Ate dinner here for the first time. We enjoyed some nice oysters on the half shell, actually got 13 instead of a dozen. The fried shrimp and oysters were tasty and my wife enjoyed some delicious blackened Red Fish. Had to share our waitress with the bar but she managed pretty well. Overall a good experience and I would eat... More

Erik was so friendly and accommodating with our questions concerning the different types of crab on the menu. He took extra measures to bring fresh sour cream for my baked potato and checked on our table several times. He was very professional and polite.

Thank Amy M
