We went to Barnacle Bill's for lunch on a Sunday. We were first customers of the day and the server was nice. We both had sandwiches that were good. My shrimp club was a new one for me.

There is no better fried shrimp anywhere. You will come back again. Down home environment. Nice staff.

Had the steak hoagie but it was very greasy. Used a lot of napkins to wipe off. Salad my wife had was fine. Keep in mind there are no really good restaurants on Dophin Island. Grease seems to be a staple.

Waitress was quite good and knew menu items well. Wife had seafood and I had a steak. Meal was well prepared and worth the price that we paid.... More

Lunch was great and fish was fresh! Pricier than I thought it should be but the food didn't disappoint! Waitress was nice and knowledgeable. I ordered the shrimp club. Was plenty of food! Should have split it with 2 others!

Dauphin Island doesn't have too many places to eat out. We ordered the fried shrimp basket to go so we could watch the sunset. The shrimp were very large and tasty, however the fries were just soggy. In their defense, it may have been better eating in the restaurant. I would give it another try if I were on island.

Ate here twice during our stay and had the Fish Po Boy both times because the fish was so good. Roll was fresh and good too. We had drinks the second time in the bar and they brought our food to us in there. Drinks are good too!

Food was expensive and not good at all. Crab cakes tasted like stove top stuffing with minimal crab meat. Will never return to this place.

After several dinners of seafood, we decided to try something different at Barnacle Bills. We were told by a friend that they served a Big A-- Steak! And they do! It was a huge rib eye, cooked to perfection and served with shrimp. My sister had the Big A-- Rib Eye Salad and I had the Chicken Alfredo. The chicken... More
