Food is very good--except the Gumbo. The seafood gumbo is watery instead of thick, bland instead of spicy. It is a seafood soup containing little seafood. It has no resemblance to gumbo. Has very little fish--two tiny shrimp fragments. Minimal celery. it seems doubtful if the chef started with a rue. Regardless, the scallops are superb. Grouper was excellent. Potatoes... More

We stopped by for a bite to eat after visiting the beaches. Food & service was good. Bathrooms were out of order but they were working on that. All 3 items we ordered was great! I would visit again!

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.
