Don't waste your time or money...

Don't waste your time or money at this oyster bar. The food is horrible. This past weekend I went there and ordered a mullet dinner and 10 hot wings. When the food finally arrived the mullet was nearly cold. The fries were cold. Most of the wings looked like pigeon wings they were so small. I asked to see Jeff, the owner, and when he came to my table I showed him the mini wings I had been served. He said he had ran out of wings and had bought some from a local meat market which were smaller than usual. He also stated that the cook should not have cooked the mini wings. I told him I would like to be compensated for the poor wings. He said he would give me a certificate for free wings at a future visit. I waited at the table for several minutes and he never returned. I told the waitress what Jeff had said he would do. She said she would check and see what he was doing. I waited several more minutes and she also never returned. The table next to mine had ordered 20 wings and they showed me their wings which were just as small as the ones I had received. The waitress had left the bill on my table earlier so I left money for the sorry food,and a tip, and left. I will never go back to this overrated place again.

Their fish tacos rock!

I'd been to Barnacle Bill's here and there over the past couple of years, but last time I went there they had put some new stuff on the menu, so I tried their fish tacos. I got the fish grilled instead of fried. They were really big soft tacos, and they were awesome! The seasoning was great, and there was a lot of fish in each of the 3 tacos I got. It came with black beans and rice, which were really good too. I was surprised at how much food there was on the plate. The staff was friendly and served us our lunch and kept our drinks topped off. Impressive!

A friend and I went here recently (her suggestion) and split the snow crab legs along with a bunch of oysters. They were SO amazing. Plenty for us to share. The oysters were incredibly fresh. I was very impressed!

Try the grouper sandwich

Barnacle Bill's has really good fried shrimp, gumbo, oysters, everything I've had was fresh and tasty. On my latest lunch there I tried the grilled grouper sandwich. It was fantastic and seasoned just right. I had it with fries and slaw. The server was attentive and got our food out fairly quickly.

Great, fresh seafood

I've had a variety of stuff off the menu at Barnacle Bill's, but I've settled on the gumbo as my go-to meal here. It's chock full of seafood and is pretty amazing. When I want a sandwich, I get their blackened grouper sandwich, which is a huge piece of fish on a bun that's almost big enough to split. Service is good, and the people are always friendly. Thumbs up!

Great local place, awesome gumbo

I've been a few times over the past several months, and the food and service are great every time. The seafood is fresh and made to order, and the sides are hot and prepared well. I always get the gumbo and they have never skimped on the seafood in there. It's a good lunch place, and the prices aren't bad for fresh seafood. You get what you pay for. I'd recommend Barnacle Bill's to anyone, especially if they are wanting to take out-of-towners to a local place.

One of the best area restaurants

One of the best area restaurants, Barnacle Bill's has been a staple in Tallahassee for many years. I have yet to have a better seafood gumbo, and the oysters are as fresh as they get. The no-frills atmosphere and plentiful seating, both inside and out, makes for a good local place, and it's extremely family-friendly.

fresh food and lots of fun

my only complaint about this place is that i had to park across the street because it was so packed out when i showed up. i was visiting for a wedding from polk county florida and was very impressed with barnacle bills. i was with a party of 12 and the service wasn't even slack for the packed out building. my raw oyster appetizer tasted like it was right out of the water and my shrimp marinara (which was heavily portioned for the price) reminded me of mama's spaghetti! if you're looking for a large party to be accommodated, give this place a shot! our server lauren was awesome too!
