On each visit we were greeted by friendly wait staff who provided prompt and efficient service. We really like the open air feel of the place, and although there is outdoor seating we have decided to hold off on al fresco dining until the weather warms up ... maybe in May. Come on, get real! We are Floridians and anything below 70 degrees F is sweater weather.
My bride and I have enjoyed live music at Bill's on several occasions. One thing that has struck us as quaint and charming is a small cluster of senior citizens are allowed to bring folding chairs indoors during inclement weather to enjoy the music with front row seats. It's nice to see 20-somethings and 80-somethings jamming together at a laid back beach bar. Beats the hell out of the Duval and Bourbon Street pukesters.
Crabby Bill's serves more than just bar food, though that is what we generally order. The hamburgers are tasty and prepared our way, and the Royal Red Shrimp prepared several ways have been superb. The Royal Red's are probably the best shrimp ever. C.B.'s extra crispy French fries are some of the best on the beach.

Crabby Bill's is definitely not haute cuisine, but it is a damn fine beach hangout with decent food, cold beer, and live music.
The Piglet Parade dines anonymously and we pay full price for all that we consume. We ain't no food ho's.
