Best restaurant in Chincoteage? Very probably!

Unquestionably one of the best restaurants on Chincoteague Island, and arguably the best. Reliable for a solid dining experience, with great service and very good food. The food is definitely a few notches above eveywhere else. The prices are higher too, and while the food doesn't match the prices... read more

I ordered my eggs over easy and they were barely cooked. My scrapple was good. My husband's western omelet was dry with no flavor. Our waitress was not attentive. She seemed to be in the weeds however there was not many tables. Bus boys were just standing in the wait station while our dirty plates Sat and water glasses were... More

In an age where most hotels offer complimentary breakfast, do yourself a favor and go to Bill's for breakfast! I have been to Bill's for many meals over the years, but their breakfasts cannot be beat. I ordered the french toast and each slice was an inch thick and larger than my hand. It definitely hit the spot! Bill's is... More

Don't miss stopping at Bill's. We ate their twice during our vacation and a winner both times. Not to miss are the shrimp stuffed with imperial crabs, the crab cakes, or the broiled scallops - all fresh and fantastic. Homemade bread is fantastic, too. I'd advise recommendations for dinner or Sunday brunch. Parking is out back if you're not within... More

This was Pony Penning week so it was extremely busy. We had reservations and were seated promptly. The wait staff was attentive and efficient. I had a seafood pyramid for two as an entree (was really an appetizer). Consisted of on the half-shell oysters, clams, steamed shrimp and mussels. Although the oysters/clams were on the small side, they were fresh... More

We ate there 2 times, both times everything was top notch. Food was amazing and so wasn;t the service. We had reservations, which I highly recommend. Also, it seems as though they are set up pretty well to handle larger groups or families, always a plus.

We had to wait 30 minutes for a table but it was ready when we got back to the restaurant. Our waitress was well informed and helpful so we made good choices. The food was interesting and tasty. Even though it was Monday night it was incredibly busy but we were unaware the annual pony swim is due this week... More

Loved it, went with my two girls and was very impressed. This was by far the best restaurant I went to on the island.
