Just got back from Bill's Seafood Restaurant, and wow, what a disappointment. I ordered the whole belly calm dinner, and was anticipating sinking my teeth into some sweet, tender, fried clams. What I got instead were tremendously overcooked clams that were actually hard and crunchy...yuck! I managed to eat about three clams because I was hungry, but left the rest.... More

We had a party of 11 and everyone enjoyed their meal. The service was friendly and helpful. It was a great day for sitting outside. The only down side was that we had to sit at two tables.

I've been going to Bill's for more years than I want to remember. The food is always good and that includes the hot dogs, lobster roll ( which is fresh, hot and substantial), fried clams and the prime rib. The atmosphere is classic seashore with outside seating on an inlet. The bar is excellent and friendly and they have entertainment... More

We come here a few times a summer. Come as you are...you don't have to worry about being dressed up here. SIt inside at a table, at the bar or outside at a bar or at tables. We have always liked what we had to eat! The drinks are great and well priced! There is always some form of entertainment.... More

Bill's has the best seafood the Connecticut shore has to offer. The prices aren't crazy, the atmosphere is laid back, and you get to enjoy being on the coast as you eat.

Returned to Bill's from 5 year absence. Still fresh, tasty food, great beer choices and friendly staff. An old haunt we miss a lot. Lobster roll and Old Bay seafood roll fabulous. Local hot spot near the water at the Singing Bridge.

A day trip to Connecticut from upstate NY ended with a fabulous meal at Bill's seafood. I have moved from NY to AZ and so miss the fresh seafood available close by. After walking on the beach and getting sand between my toes, this was the perfect ending to a wonderful day. Sitting outside and seeing the gulls fighting, listening... More
