This place is great! I love the way this place looks like! I love their sandwiches and their selection of salad. I will recommend this place to everyone I know.

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!

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.

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!

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, 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.

What a disaster. We were travelling through Tallahassee and wanted a quick bite to eat for lunch. We saw Wendy's for something quick, but right next door saw this Barnacle Bill's and, being seafood lovers, decided to have lunch there. We stood in the doorway several minutes before a bartender called to us to sit anywhere and someone would be with us. We sat down and waited about 15 minutes and eventually, to be fair, our server to start with was courtious, polite, helpful and friendly, but it took them ages to collect our drinks. My coffee was first cold, then brewed so strong I couldn't drink it. We were concerned over the menu with lunch prices averaging $14.95 to $20. We were eventually told they only do the lunch menu Monday to Friday. This was a Saturday so I opted to order something from the kids menu, but our friendly server offered to give us the lunch menu as a special favor. Our 2 children got their food and so did my wife (though only half her order) after another half an hour. It was all breaded, tough and dark showing that their cooking oil was obviously old and well used. It was horrible. Another 15 minutes went by, my family had finished and I was still waiting for my food. Now 45 minutes gone (So much for a quick family lunch SERVED TOGETHER!) I walked out in disgust leaving my family sitting there heading for a quick burger at Wendy's next door. As the server was pleading, oh it's coming out now, I replied too late, I've had enough waiting! I later learned that the server got into a confrontation with my wife arguing the waiting times differences and insisting that she still had to pay for my food that went in the bin. Shame I didn't know until later or I would have refused to pay for the garbage they served my family a total of $40 for lunch including a meal they failed to serve me in a reasonable time and fashion.Needless to say, no tip was left! So much for a manager being there to see and hear what was going on and my wife having to deal with a now obnoxious and argumentive server. All in all, this place failed miserably with a timely service, nasty food, showing, gross mis-management and without any good customer relations.Goodbye forever Barnacle Bill's!

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!

Cons: limited parking

Quite expensive for the fair quality food. Fried oysters were over cooked, although the quantity was impressive if didn't make up for the quality. Shrimp platter was over-run with undecooked celery and onions, a lame attempt at a low-country boil. For a weds night it was quite busy, and it showed in the lack of service.

The first time I came here I was really impressed with the seafood that they served us. The food was good, the atmosphere relaxing and the services was great.

Two thumbs up from me.

Our first experience at Barnacle Bill's took place during a weekend when a relative was getting married. This is a place to let your hair down and relax while enjoying some great oysters or any other of the tasty menu choices. Bill's has some loyal followers but welcomes first timers with open arms !
