We have been going here for years, generally for their great burgers and sandwiches. They have now added some interesting entrées that get high marks. We were just there Friday, as usual the service was spot on. We stated with calamari. It came out perfectly not like so many places that over cook... read more

Interesting bar, lots of conversation among the customers and bar people. Lots of coming & going. The restaurant, in spite of being quite old, was very tepid. Good place to dringk, go elsewhere for food.

The "desk clerk" at the hotel said that there was no place to eat in Hamilton Township unless we go to the chain restaurant just outside the hotel but we happily found a number of places in Trip Advisor, including Bill's. The food was average to very good depending on what you're comparing it to. And, in fairness, it was... More

We enjoyed our dinner very much. We found it very tasty and looking forward to return for it was our first visit. Our waitress was excellent and was able to guide us with our choices.

My fiancee and I and lunch here and really enjoyed it! The service was fine and the food was delicious. We had fish 'n chips and Sheppard's pie (a shared special on the menu - choice of two) which we both enjoyed. The Cod was delicious!! The pie was large and I took it home for lunch the next day!...

We went to lunch on a Monday at Old Bill's. Lunch was very subpar. After spending 15 minutes looking at the menu - two of the four of us ordered the Cheese Steak Sandwich. Five minutes later we were told there were no cheese steaks and the chef didn't tell the wait staff. Ok - after reordering food - 2... More

Came here with an old work pal and he had the pepper jack sandwich and I had the tavern chicken sandwich. I had a Stella Artois beer and he had an cied tea. The lunch was served with pickle slices and home cut fries done well. The sandwich was OK. Small patio facing 5 points intersection and close to work... More

My wife and I have been saying for quite some time to go for dinner there. We decided tonight would be that night. The interior of the restaurant is very rustic, which I like. The waitress came to our table, took our order, and kept stopping back (maybe a bit too much) to see if we needed anything. I ordered... More

The food is OK, but the reason to go there is the atmosphere: old plank floors bowed and polished with age, low ceilings from the times when large rooms were hard to heat, a friendly staff ready to share stories of its history.
