Barnacle Bill's dining room was destroyed by a fire on August 1, 2016. The bar down under was seriously damaged. The future is uncertain. Read the story on WCTV news, WTXL news, or Tallahassee Democrat news websites.

I was pleasantly surprised to find pretty darned good seafood this far inland. I had the lobster tail special with steam vegetables. My wife had the shrimp trio. Both meals were quite tasty. Our server was great and the prices were quite reasonable. The menu had a good selection to allow for frequent visits.

I love Bill's! It should be ranked in the top 20 or 30 for Tallahassee if not better. May not be fancy but you get a great meal at a good price. Most of the seafood tastes fresh and the oysters are local. In addition to seafood, I love their Large Margaritas (only $4) and wings (who'd think a seafood... More

Food and service was good. Mgt had no control over a large party of very loud and drunk people. Ruined our visit.

BOGO on oysters by the dozen each Monday. Great deal! We sat at the oyster bar and had dozen after dozen shucked fresh for us. Not fancy, just casual good food and service. We ordered them steamed and they were the biggest oysters! I'll be back.

I am sad AND angry. For over 25 years I have celebrated countless birthdays, anniversaries, Friday's, Parrot days and any-days, HERE! Cannot, will not return and now encourage friends and family to stop. Too far gone. I feel betrayed by an old BFF. Now, over the years I have had some misses, or servers that were in the wrong job.... More

The food was pretty good, but I would say I overpaid for what I got. The kitchen staff was nice enough to let me replace fish with some extra shrimp on my plate even though the first said no. $25 for a steamed plate with only one cluster of crab legs that only had 3 legs on it, very small... More

Visited Barnacle Bill's for a pail full of raw oysters - delicious and fun watching them get shucked (about 36 oysters). Enjoyed fried pickles, a sampling of wings and grouper sandwich. All were good, but the oysters the best. Had excellent service too. This time it was good - last time (several years ago), not so much so.

If you have a problem at Barnacle Bill's, just ask for Jeff. He's been in the business for ages and he's interested in your satisfaction. My husband and I live in Germany now. We return to Tallahassee every summer and the first place we go when we get to town is Barnacle Bill's. Don't expect a lot from the decor.... More
