The meal was good--dependable; the service was sub-par. The restaurant was out of one of the appetizers and a beer that we ordered. The selection is typically good (we have eaten here a number of times before), but the availability was not on this visit. We were dining early, too.

Met some old friends .. Just for drinks, but I understand the food is good also... Just across from Jo Jo's .. So you can go bar hoping without driving around...

Bill's is hit and miss. I always love the casual atmosphere, and sometime the food rocks, other times not. This trip was a mix. We had nachos as an appy. They were burned and the chili on them tasted odd. Not that it was bad, but not something I would ever order again. I had a chicken dish that was... More

It's just okay. It's been there forever. It's quaint but food is average. Quaint but tables on top of each other & bar is too close to diners sitting at tables.

We live in Hamilton and have tried Bill's Olde Tavern a few times. I SO want to love this place! But I just can't. The inside of the building has such charm, and the menu looks good, too! But the food is just mediocre at best. We've gone three times over the past 18 months, really trying to make it... More

Friendly service. Consistently good food. Broad menu. Neighborhood vibe. And reasonable prices. We visit as often as possible!

Dark and unattractive mostly fried bar food Place for young people to socialize, noisy drinking spot not an eating destination

The food did not stand up to the surroundings here. I've been here many times over the years and it seems like there is a different chef each time. My recent visit for lunch was disappointing. Service was good and the ambiance of the old tavern remains, but the food was not worth the prices. The fish from fish and... More

It's difficult to write this review, as Bill's has been a staple for us for years. We used to enjoy the variety of meals offered in this historic location. However, Bill's food for the past few visits seems to be slipping. The menu does rotate from time to time, which seems to offer a good variety depending on the time... More

The food is good, service is excellent and prices are cheap! It's part "old cozy house with a fireplace and probably a ghost or two" and part "nightclub/bar with fabulously cheap happy hours!" We love coming here...it's big enough to hold an after-show cast party (the Kelsey Theatre is just down the road) but can be intimate enough for a... More
