Sat right on the deck overlooking the water and the food was delicious. We have stopped at Bill's Seafood every time we visit Westbrook and will continue to come back.

If you love authentic New England fried seafood, go here! We went 2 times while at Waters Edge because it was so good. I hear the lobster rolls are awesome too!

I really enjoyed this place which I just recently tried for the first time. I love the picnic tables by the water however the noise of the trucks going through the bridge was a little bit of a nuisance. Make sure to grab a table away from the singing bridge. Their service was fairly good and food was very good.... More

I ate here just a couple of days ago with my family. After reading all of the reviews, I was really looking forward to trying a couple of their dishes. Alas, the food was one big, overpriced disappointment. I ordered the "pig's wings" to start because so many reviewers raved about them. All these things are, people, are BBQ ribs.... More

Eating at picnic tables in a lovely setting overlooking an inlet and the "singing bridge" makes for a fun summer dining experience. The food is always good---- we especially like the Asian salad with salmon, the coconut shrimp, and the lobster rolls. The fish dishes are always fresh and well- prepared. Casual is the name of the game here ----... More

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
