    Have been there a couple of times with friends. We had the fried shrimp and it was good. Really nothing to brag about. Would go back maybe for lunch if we were in the area.

    My sister-in-law and I were visiting the area and someone suggested Barnacle Bills. We were a little thrown by the appearance but let me tell you... The wait staff was fantastic, and the food was fabulous! My sister-in-law had never had Gator tail and I have to say it was some of the best that I've had. They have a cauliflower dish that is to die for! (I used the left over sauce to dip my fries in!). I would definitely go back! I would LOVE the recipe for the cauliflower!

    This restaurant is right next door to our hotel and I loved the fact that we didn't have to drive anywhere and fight to find parking. The service was excellent and the fried shimp was terrific. The cauliflower was barely warm and hubby's fries were not hot but the chowder and shrimp were excellent.

    My husband and I stopped in for lunch and were very glad we did. I had the fish tacos they were great. He had the fried shrimp and he loved them. The waitress was friendly and attentive. We will be going back again.
