Excellent food and service

First time eating here and will not be my last. A little pricey but the quality of food was exceptional. Try the tropical shrimp salad in place of the house or ceasars with the honey mustard dressing. Overall a 10 out of 10

Absolutely the best meal we have had on the Eastern Shore! The Cream of Crab soup and the Onion soup were delicious. The crab imperial was outstanding. I expected one ramekin on my plate, but received two of the best imperial made with gorgeous white crab meat and broiled to perfection! The salads were so fresh and the the ceasar... More

In February there are limited options. But thank goodness Bills stays open. Our group was overall satisfied though the fish and chips was not fresh.

We drive 2 hours from Virginia Beach just to eat at Bills and get a room at the Waterside Inn to stay the night. The food is always great and we've never had a problem with service. I truly don't understand some of their negative reviews on here. It's worth the price in quality and taste. (I'm someone who uses... More

Bill's was one of the very few restaurants open in Chincoteague during February, It's a goodie, though, open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Check out the light fixture in the middle of the room. Our server informed us that it is a Chihuly, very impressive. It's impressive, all right.

My wife and I both had the stuffed grouper meal. While the deviled crab stuffing wasn't the lump crab you would get "in season", it was still tasty. We also had the calamari and bacon-wrapped scallop appetizers. Portions were small, but food was yummy. Service was excellent as always.

Celebrated Valentine's Day at Bill's. The meal was wonderful! Excellent filet mignon. Stuffed Grouper was fantastic. Mashed Redskin potatoes with ham hock and smoked cheddar were to die for!Our server was friendly and attentive.

we had lunch at Bills Seafood, and we were impressed! The staff and servers were very friendly and helpful. The oyster stew was great, and the grouper sandwich was unbelievable! The size of the portion was huge, and it was delicious! We wound up splitting one, and taking the other in a take home box for later. I would definitely... More

Best fried seafood platter around. The crabcakes are to die for. Service is great, can get pricey but for the quality of the food I don't mind. Breakfast is also great. If your near by make sure that you stop in to try the food.
