Barnacle Billy's

50 & 70 Perkins Cove Rd.
Ogunquit, ME, 03907, United States
TEL: (207) 646-5575

In 1961, longtime fisherman and lobsterman Billy Tower started scouring nearby waters for seafood to serve at his casual, Perkins Cove restaurant, which operates from April through late October. Billy’s seasoned kitchen team serves up “lobstah” several ways: in the shell with butter on the side, as the key ingredient in Billy’s special stew, or stuffed into a grilled, butter-lathered bun. Crab rolls and clam chowder are also popular choices, and landlubbers can opt for plates of barbecued chicken or even a grilled hotdog. On nice days, people fill multiple patios to sip Billy’s signature rum punch and watch as the fishing boats pass through Perkins Cove, bound for the open waters of the Atlantic.

Insider Tip:

Barnacle Billy’s is just off Marginal Way, a mile-plus walking path path that wraps around rocky shores and offers oceanside lookouts.
