Owner Todd Sherman says Barnacle Bill's will no longer serve peanuts, citing concerns over customers' peanut allergies and slip and fall claims filed by diners who say they lost their footing in the layer of shells underfoot.

But Sherman, the owner, said the restaurant has been sued three times in the last several years over customers who fell. The restaurant reached undisclosed settlements with the plaintiff in each case. He also receives frequent calls from people who claim they fell on the peanut shells the night before, prompting worries over more lawsuits.

""Every time they slip and fall they blame it on the peanuts," he said.

He also noted a sharp spike in the number of longtime customers who say they can't return because their children have peanut allergies.
