Always enjoy my visits to Bill's -- I come to the beach every year and we're at Bill's at least three times during our visit. The shrimp cocktail is outstanding! The Lobster with stuffing is amazing! I really love their fried clams. They're hard to find but Bill's makes the best! Bill's is always a high point of our visit.... More

I have been on a quest to find the best lobster roll this summer and I went back to Bills Seafood to find it! The lobster roll platter comes with fries and cole slaw but the lobster roll is plenty. There was an entire lobster claw in the roll along with other fresh delicious lobster. The bun was perfectly buttered... More

Fried whole belly clams are very bready. Steamers are good, but not a great value when you see the portion size. The Rhode Island Clam Chowder should be called potato soup as the frozen potato cubes make up over 50% of the soup. The fried calamari were heavy, oily, and very undercooked. Almost pastey. I know its a great place... More

This place is my #1 choice for dinner on a summer night. The back deck is a wonderful spot to gather with friends and/or family and eat some of the freshest seafood you can find in CT. I went tonight and we ordered the steamers and pork wings to start. The steamers are a regular favorite of mine and the... More

My wife insists on eating here for the Lobster Rolls which she just loves. I usually have something else and we both come away satisfied. This is a cash only restaurant but prices are good. They also have a handy ATM machine on premises in case. Also next to restaurant they have a very good ice cream parlor. The restauant... More

with their lobster BLT. It was crazy good! I mean, everything's better with bacon, but this was ridiculous. So delicious, I went back to have it again before I left town. And the other thingthat was unexpectedly fantastic...the pig's wings appetizer. A tear on chicken wings; only meatier & fall off the bone tender with a barbeque sauce that's neither... More

We had a delightful time at Bill's yesterday. The raw bar appetizer was small, but fresh. The rest of our meal was delicious. Bill's does a good job with the fried seafood. The fried clam strip platter was also fresh and fried to perfection. One of my husband's favorites is the hot lobster roll. He was pleased with the amount... More

The food here is great, especially if you're in the mood for good fried seafood. My husband and I split "seafood platter for two". Yum! My only gripe with that was there were only four or so fried shrimp, and they were the best part! It is a casuAl atmosphere right on the water. My one complaint with the place... More

Great Seafood. Going to Bills is a tradition. Over the years the food has been better at some times than others but has never been disappointing. They push a lot of food through there so its always fresh. Better than Lenny and Joes for sure. Cold Lobster roll is very good and reasonably priced (you can't expect it to be... More

Went to Bills seafood recently after a wedding it was great!!!! Food was so fresh and prepared with care. The seafood selections were abundant i recommend the Fried oysters delich. Drinks were also great we had a few too many of the frozen mudslides. Get there early it fills up fast.
