So consistent it hurts.

I guess they've changed the name to Bill's Prime - don't know when that happened. The interior has been remodeled since our last visit - nice! I've been going there for breakfast during island visits for over 20 years. We've only been for dinner a couple times preferring to cook ourselves or be... read more

This was a well run restaurant with outstanding food. My husband loved the fettuccine Alfredo and I loved my fried oysters. Both dinners were served with wonderful accompaniments; wonderful bread and a choice of either garden salad, César salad or a fresh small shrimp salad. The salad dressings were not bottles but homemade and wonderful. I recommend reservations as it... More

Bills always does a good job of basic seafood dishes. Crabcakes and oysters are good although the fried shrimp seem to he from a box. They seem to have held their prices this year.

We love to go to Bill's while in Chincoteague. They have wonderful food that is a bit on the pricey side, but worth it. Their desserts are marvelous. They are not stingy at all with filling your dinner plate or your dessert either. It is definitely enough dessert for two!! The wait staff is attentive and polite. The food is... More

Amazing dinner specials. There were 4 in our party and everyone's dinner was incredible, and our server was the best. Will definitely go back whenever we visit Chincoteague.

I love splurging on food at the beach - this place is the perfect fancier dinner spot. I had the Seafood Norfolk which seems to have been conceived just for me. So delicious I will never order anything else. My party of 5 had reservations, which was fortunate because the place filled up fast on a Sunday evening. They enjoyed... More

Broiled scallops were perfect. I tasted husband's calf liver, some of the best I have ever eaten. Great service and reasonable prices too!

We were there mid June, mid week and the place was packed. Fortunately we had reservations. Lots of local families there for birthdays, etc.Grouper was one of the specials, broiled in butter with Bill's unique mix of spices. Unbelievably good! With a clarified butter dipping sauce on the side. No, not exactly diet food, but for a special night out,... More

The food was very high priced, for the area. I felt way under dressed, almost everyone was dressed like they was going to a wedding, I was in jeans and tee shirt.
