David was a great server. Three of us had the Jonah crab which we had never heard of. It was pretty good. We weren't expecting it to just be the claws and it isn't as good as snow crab legs but it was still enjoyable. The fourth person in our party had the Blackened Mahi Mahi and she said it... More

This is a good family restaurant. It's a homey place, with tables big enough to seat a large group. We ordered an appetizer, the fried alligator. Our very good waiter recommended we get it fried, as I've never had it before. It was in small pieces, on a bed of white rice, with hush puppies, served with ranch and cocktail... More

We had the fresh catch which was Redfish that day and it was very good. Sides are basic but well done. Atmosphere is peasant and family oriented. Portions are generous. We split an entree and it was plenty of food for us!

Went to Bayou Bill's Crab House last night with my daughter. David was our server and he was amazing. We didn't have to ask for anything. The crab legs were absolutely amazing!!

Its hard to find alligator on a menu that's not fried bite size pieces. Ordered the alligator appitizer. One was sauted in butter and the other blackened. Both were served over plain rice, although I thought it was supposed to be a rice pilaf. Both were very tasty. Wish they had it in entree size. They were served with two... More

We ate here our first night of our weekend getaway to Panama City Beach. David was our waiter, and he was perfect! Made recommendations, wasn't pushy, was energetic and accommodating, and let us eat without running over ever 3 minutes to check on us. A welcome change! Also, I lost my phone down the side of the booth and could... More
