I am happy to suggest this restaurant for a family dinner or just with friends. Being from this area, I have gone several times. I always bring my Louisiana family here for local seafood and specials. I love their crab & corn bisque for starters. You couldn't ask for better service either. The prices are about the same as other... More

Bayou Bills is a little expensive but it is very good food. Don't miss trying the paradise shrimp. So good.

We went here for dinner. We were very pleased with our experience! The service was exceptional and the food was great. Very clean restaurant as well. We'll definitely be back! It's now one of our favorites in the area.

I had to stop on my way out and tell the staff how much I enjoyed my meal, I told them most places we eat I really like parts of my meal but here I enjoyed everything I had. I will be back.

My wife and I saw the good reviews so we decided to eat there. We walked in and 4 people were standing there. It took a while for the hostess to show up but she finally did and seated them. She came back and gave us a pager and said it would be a few minutes. There was a group... More

This is one of our favorite restaurants to visit in the area! The service is always excellent, and the food is delicious. During a week-long trip, we usually eat at Bayou Bill's twice - it's that good! We have always been treated wonderfully by the servers and staff, and no matter how busy the restaurant is, we have never been... More

The grilled oysters are to die for! Great place for families and large parties. Erik, our server, was great.

Would rate 3.5. Crab an corn chowder is tasty, hefty, filling and satisfying esp on a cold evening. Mahi good but, a bit dry and overcooked. Husband got the surf and turf special that was very tasty. Service was courteous but, a little sporadic as server had a couple of big tables. Sides okay, don't allow much substitution. Prices seem... More

We are here with the whole family...14 total. They actually have a couple of tables large enough for a party that size. It was neat sitting at a giant round table with room for everyone. The food was great. I went out on a limb and tried the shrimp with a half rack of baby back ribs. Ribs at a... More
