Food and drink here twice in a week. Dockside meals in good weather can't be beat. The service was great! The water views are wonderful. Plenty to do nearby to walk off the seafood meal.

Barnacle Billy's is unique in that it is the only restaurant in Ogunquit, Maine that has a balcony overlooking the bay of Perkins Cove. In the summer, this place is so refreshing while eating your lobster (or other) in the open air and feeling the fresh air of the sea. The "come as you are" place to eat in OGT.... More

Search other options when eating in Perkin's Cove. Less than average meals and over priced for sea food ordered by our group of six adults. Ordered at counter and struggled to find a place to sit and eat. Not exceptional staff either... College kids who couldn't care less about assisting us. Look across the street for a better meal.

First, there are two Barnacle Billy's, basically side by side. One is where you order from the counter then they deliver your food and the menu is very limited. The other one is a full service restaurant with a much larger menu selection. This review is for the full service restaurant. The interior of the restaurant was nice and the... More

I stopped at Barnacle Billy's for lunch on my first visit to Maine. I had been anxiously awaiting to taste my first Maine Lobster Roll. Unfortunately I was less than impressed. For nearly $20 I received a hot dog sized bun with a smallish amount of cold chewy lobster meat and a side of fries. Although somewhat tasty, I left... More

There are two restaurants side by side. One is more a dining restaurant and the other is more a cafeteria style restaurant. Both are known for their delicious seafood. They also serve other fares. They both also have outdoor dining weather permitting.

Went there last Sun (Oct 30), and was dismayed to see that the pound side had closed for the season. Went next door to the full service restaurant, which is very nice. They had a nice lunch menu and served the same bar specialties as the pound (Rum Punch, oh yes!). Despite the rain, we were very happy to be... More

This is a great spot to eat lobster. The first time we were here we saw former President George Bush and his wife Barbara. That was exciting but the lobster was better. You place your order a the counter ordering by the pound. They call your number when your order is ready. The chowder and the garlic bread are also... More
