Barnacle Bills Oyster Bar

Restaurant | "Barnacle Bill's Oyster Bar"

Quote:
This is a locally owned and operated, quintessentially North Florida oyster bar. Outside the deck are sports, music, and local people-watching, and the main dining room has a large aquarium, booths, and a traditional oyster bar in the center of the room. The back room has a large bar, large-screen TV, and the underneath is a young folks-type lounge. Up top, you will see the best diverse clientele mixing it up and having a great time. Everyone loves this oyster bar!
