Barnacle Bills is now closed and it is a new restaurant with a "new ownership" sign out front. It was the fishing rodeo week, so we did not get a chance to go in. Building looks the same.

The food was great and the service was even better. Seafood platter cooked perfectly and the server not only was prompt but very informative of the food and area attractions. A must stop for anyone visiting the island.

We arrived by boat, walked up to the restaurant and were greeted and seated promptly, our server was friendly and efficient. Food came out quickly and was very good. The grilled shrimp was excellent. The raw oysters were large and tasty.

Great food and we loved the Key Lime Pie ! We sampled a lot of Key Lime Pie this trip and this was the best. Seafood Platter is enough food for two. Great place
