We had been told to make reservations. Good thing! We had a large group and all raved about how good the food was. Excellent service and dining atmosphere. Will definately go again next month when its just me and hubby for our anniversary. Tasty bloody marys. Two thumbs up!!

Every year we stop in at Bill's to eat. We were not able to check in at the hotel so we went in the middle of the afternoon. They were not busy so seating wasn't a problem. We were greeted and seated by a friendly girl at the front. The waitress we had was also very pleasant and prompt with... More

We were visiting the island for a bit of r&r and this restaurant was within walking distance of our hotel. We stopped in to read the menu and THANK GOD we made reservations because, when we came back less than an hour later the place was packed with no availability until after 8:30pm. The food is fresh and delicious -... More

Usually the first restaurant that I visit while I'm at Chincoteague is Bill's Seafood. It is rather ordinary from the outside but inside, the food is great! The staff is always friendly and the service is prompt. This is the first place that I had ever tried oysters and I've been coming back every year since. I ordered the broiled... More

If you are open until 9:00pm, why are you turning away people (I counted 60 people) with a restaurant that was more than 50% empty with the reason being, the tables are held for reservations? We waited 25 minutes which took us to 8:50pm with a closing time of 9:00pm. When they said they were holding tables for reservations, I... More

This is one of the places suggested to us by our hotel staff. Reservations are highly recommended. Do not miss this seafood! The crab cakes are outstanding and the crab stuffed fish was also very good. There was nothing that we had there that wasn't outstanding. If I lived closer, I would drive an hour to eat at this restaurant... More

It has been about 10 years since I ate at Bill's. It was great in the past and recommended by multiple locals. I don't know if they were having an off night (Thursday), but it was very disappointing. The signature crab dip appetizer had no taste and certainly no seasoning. The meat was bland and the cheese was rubbery. I... More
