One of our favorite spots

Love to sit outside, nice laid back atmosphere. Food is always good. The only downfall is they are cash only. So make sure you hit the ATM before you go. There is one inside the front of the building.

On a recent trip to the CT shore with our almost 90 y/o parents, we were looking for a place to get fresh seafood for dinner on a Friday night, and happened upon Bill's. WOW! What a blast! An awesome Dixieland Jazz band was playing, the food was very good! My lobster was perfectly done, maybe a little small, but... More

My one and only visit. I stopped for lunch on Sunday when driving back from Newport going east to New York. I was one of the first, car #3, and easily got a deck table on the water. When I left, the parking lot was packed so it seems popular or it attracted a lot of tourists driving by like... More

This restaurant is a hidden gem! It's nothing fancy in looks but, the seafood is delicious! It's always fresh, and there is plenty of it on your plate. There is a nice deck, if you choose to eat outside. There is a fully stocked bar and plenty of space at the bar if you'd like to grab a quick lunch,... More

My wife and I needed a break from routine, so off for a seaside lunch. Bill's has indoor and outdoor dinning in a very relaxed atmosphere. My wife had the lunch special, a grilled salmon sandwich with curly fries. The salmon was cooked perfect with nice grilled marks for added favor. I had the "fish" sandwich. The fish was great,...

Every year, at least once, I drive more than 90 minutes to eat at Bill's. I had the broiled salmon today for the first time and it was the best salmon I've ever eaten. Really moist and flavorful. My friend had the grilled salmon burger and said it was great. The drawbacks of Bill's include tight parking, plastic cutlery and... More

Loved the bartenders (who make excellent cosmos by the way) and the beers on tap were terrific. Listened to a great band and very much enjoyed the "regulars" whoo came to sit next to us at the bar. This restaurant and bar made us want to come to Westbrook again!

I go to Bill's Seafood probably eight to ten times each year (mostly during the summer). The menu is pretty standard, but the best items on the menu are the seafood. You can sit inside or outside, and it is cash only. Outside is great when the weather is nice because you can sit near the river that flows into... More

Don't let the casual atmosphere fool you, this place has very good food! This is a regular stop for us when visiting the CT shore. I drove about 45 mins round trip today just to go here for take out seafood to bring back to eat at the beach - well worth it! You've gotta try their whole belly clams,... More

It is not a fancy place. But, it is a busy place all year round. In the winter, you need to eat inside. Which has a dining room, and a bar. Sometimes live music. In the summer, you can eat outside, on a large , but sometimes crowded patio deck. Which also has a bar. People sometimes pull their boats... More
