While visiting this winter, Bill's was one of the only restaurants open off-season but we did not regret that! My fiancee and I had a lovely brunch (shrimp poboy and a burger) that we could not have stopped eating if you made us. The service was great, even though they had a large crowd, and the food was finger licking... More

My fiancee and I come to the island a few times a year. We've eaten at Bill's for breakfast, lunch and dinner over a period of three years. We're blown away by the food each time. I ordered thr fried seafood combo last time and couldn't finish it. You get salad, soup and the huge dinner. The flounder was crispy... More

Every year for the past 5 years the last meal on the island is at Bill's. 11 people each time and it is always an amazing event and a perfect end to a great vacation.

Bill's is always our first place to eat at on our trips to Chincoteague... it's become a tradition! Consistently delicious and fresh... and the waiters are so friendly and welcoming! Can't wait to come back... hopefully this spring or summer... Or both!

Bill's is one of those seafood restaurants that have all the traditional seaside dishes, but done a little better than most. The portions are large, so a good value. And the staff is very friendly. Also, in off seasons they are usually open while others shut down. Since it was winter, I took advantage of local oysters, with some on... More

Tasty food in filling portions but almost nothing for vegetarians. The menu is short on salads and vegetables in general, big on seafood and steaks, decent but not at all innovative.

Bill's is our newest cherished family tradition! We've been going to Bill's every holiday season for 3 years now as a part of our annual pilgrimage to Chincoteague between Christmas and New Years. It's what we look forward to most during our island getaway. Delicious food, service that can't be beat and a casual feel in an elegant atmosphere. Hurry... More

Great seafood, Never disappointed. Try the Oyster stew with country ham or the crab Imperial. The staff was very busy on NYE but still very friendly.
