They have a fried seafood platter for 2. It is very noisy here. Not great for talking. Service is average. Food is very good.

My first time eating here. Forget your credit cards - they only take cash. Dont worry there is an ATM. The food was ok, but primarily served with disposable cups, plates, and plastic forks, spoons and knives. There was a two person band who were very very good. I will probably opt for restaurants in the future that are more... More

Stopped by Bill's on way home from hockey game on recommendation from friend. Atmosphere is very typical of any seafood restaurant with very tight seating. Food was very good and fresh. Had a couple of appetizers for my meal. The oysters were very fresh and the calamari was perfectly cooked. Give them a try if you are in the area.

I have been here many times, but mainly during the summer, when the deck is a great fun place. There is a Tiki bar, boats floating by and a fun crowd. Recently, I went on a Sunday evening in November. Not the same atmosphere, obviously this is New England. Didn't enjoy the plastic utensils for apps.Dinner came with real silverware.... More

Bills is exactly what I think of when I think a vacation or the perks of living at the beach. Its a beach bar in a local town where the drinks/food are good and it seems people know your name. The staff is great and the location is fantastic. Sitting on the deck watching the cars go by and enjoying... More

This place was a "go to" spot many years ago. They have the fried everything that a lot of people crave, and, if that's what you're looking for, this is the place. Otherwise, your choices are very limited. I ate here with my wife and friends this summer and felt that I damaged my digestive system with all the fries... More

Food is great. Service is great. My once a month go to. I love fried food. I try to limit my intake, but once a month I have a french fry fix. The fried seafood is very fresh.

We love coming here from the Hartford area every few months and like it much better than Lenny and Joe's. Service is fast, seafood excellent, portions decent. Prices creeping up like all restaurants.
