Visiting Chincoteague Island in early February limits the options one has for dining to two full service establishments.

Based on recommendations from the hotel staff, I chose Bill's Seafood and was very pleased with the outcome. The food is good, the portions appropriate, and the service quick, without being overly hovering. With an extensive menu for both seafood lovers and... More

Chef's Special was Baked Founder surrounding a Crab Cake, with 2 choices in sides was very good - Recommended. Nice bottle of Italian Pinot Grigio at very... More

Bill's has an excellent menu, a great chef, wait staff and bartender all working with a pleasant atmosphere. Our appetizers and entrees were excellent as was my martini. I will be going back.

We dined here on Labor Day night. We were glad they were open late as we were late arriving to the island. We shared the seafood tower and ordered two different apps. All were ok, nothing special but not terrible either. We would probably come back here if we visit Chincoteague again, as there aren't a whole lot of dining... More

We arrived for a late Sunday night dinner. First and foremost the waitress was excellent. I thought the crab dip was good but had way too much cheddar cheese on top. It really took away from the dip. The oyster stew was very bland. All in all....considering the prices....I'd hoped for better.

Restaurant was very busy as many restaurants are closed during the offseason. We were seated about 5 minutes after our reservation, which was reasonable. The highlight of our meal was the seafood tower for two. Although not presented as described on a mountain of ice, the seafood seemed fresh. We enjoyed it thoroughly. The tropical salad was disappointing. Overly thick... More

We came to Chincoteague for the long MLK weekend. We didn't expect a great experience since it was off season, and it was one of a handful of open restaurants. We were surprised and impressed not just with our meals but with the quality of service. David was attentive and professional. It was also a very special little seven-year-old's birthday,... More

Thank goodness for Bill's! Delicious meal, excellent service and lovely wine list. Thankful it's open year round or we would have had no good options. We tried another seafood spot down the street and it was terrible. And certainly didn't offer the caliber of a white table cloth meal like we had at Bill's.

Good food with friendly service. We called to make a reservation. We went in October when it was not peak season...it is not a large restaurant so reservations are probably necessary in the summer. Dress can be casual. Would definitely go again.
