Best Happy Hour Deals

It's Happy Hour time from 4-7pm every day at Bill Batemans. The best deal is on Mondays-- it's all the buffalo wings , either with the bones or boneless that you can eat for $9.99 and a $2.99 steak dinner that comes with a baked potato and a salad. And it is really good. They take $1.00 off... read more

This place used to be good. I stopped in for a quick dinner and was not pleased. I was seated immediately and the waitress arrived promptly. The food was the problem, I ordered the chicken Chesapeake with baked Potatoe and broccoli. The broccoli was the best part. The Potatoe was shriveled and over baked. The chicken was terribly salty and... More

I took a group of guys out to lunch for a Birthday celebration. They picked Bill Bateman's for the Wednesday $10 crab cake special. I have been to other Bill Bateman's but this is my first time at the Parkville location. My other experiences with Bill Bateman's has been an average, this was not any different. In regards to the...

We went here for a small birthday celebration. The service was so-so. We wanted to order one of the specialty drinks-of-the-day but our waitress wasn't sure what was in it. She did go and find out for us. It took awhile for our food to arrive. It was the usual bar food that you can find just about anywhere.

Good for Happy Hour, we usually go on Fridays just after work. There is usually a taco/nacho bar that they provide free as long as you are purchasing drinks.

Okay, This was my second and last visit to this place.... Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me. Had the over priced chicken wings. 3 oof the 20 wings were red raw next to the bone, almost bleeding still, 1 wing was broken and black at the center. The wait staff was overbearing, and annoying...

First, Bateman's has good wings and cold beer! That is what they are known to accomplish very well. When it comes to the other items on the menu, they can be inconsistant in execution. I Love the atmosphere at their Perry Hall location, but have had better food at this location. Last evening, I had the Crab Cake Special (Wednesday... More

One thing to make clear up front...Bateman's is basically a bar with a restaurant attached. The portions are large. The prices reasonable. The service is good. But the food is inconsistent, espcially in presentation. My spouse and I have been here many times as locals. Sometimes the food is delicious. Sometimes just below average. On occasion, two people have ordered... More

My son, decided he wanted to eat at Bill Bateman's before going off to college. The food, although edible really was not good. The crab cakes were over seasoned with a heavy hand on the filler, salt and of all things nutmeg. The accompanying slaw was watery and the fries were cold. My son and his best friend ordered wraps...

I was craving buffalo chicken but without the mess of wings- I found a Buffalo Chicken Grilled Cheese on the menu- hit the spot! Why pair it with the usual fries when you can try the more healthy Eggplant fries- also super delicious! Waitstaff was very friendly and helpful, answering my questions on these interesting dishes and their other offerings.... More
