It was a pleasure to have a business lunch recently at this restaurant. The interior and exterior was very nicely decorated for Christmas. The restaurant is virtually spotless when it comes to cleaning and the food was delicious. I had a black forest smoked ham sandwich with a dijon mustard sauce and my associate had this huge prime rib steak... More

The restaurant is always busy - frequented by locals as well as visitors. The atmosphere within is attractive - artwork, including blown glass, decorates the dining room. Holidays offer a particularly festive spirit - with a tree and other seasonal touches. Everything I've eaten there has been good - lots of seafood but other choices too. Breakfasts offer huge omelets... More

The prime rib was exceptional. It is a seared prime rib which is different than the prime rib I am used to. It was tough but I stayed low carb by ordering green beans as a side. It was tough because of the awesome choices that Bill's has. My wife had a herb crusted chicken breast and it was a... More

We've been here before for both lunch and dinner. The seafood is to die for! Absolutely the best place on the island for a meal. A little more expensive that other places..but well worth every penny. And they let you share a meal if you want. Friendly servers and quick to recognize you once you've been seated. At Christmastime the... More

Generous portions, reasonable price for entree, but I ordered dessert [to go] which was WAY overpriced: $8 for a piece of cake about the size of a doorstop.

We love eating at Bill's. Our last 4 day stay we ate there 3 times! The options are numerous - even for those who don't eat seafood! The portions are ample, you will not leave the table hungry, and we even had to use to go boxes, which we reheated for a fourth meal from Bills! Be sure to call... More

My wife and I have tried quite a few of the restaurants in Chincoteague over the years. This time, we asked our hotel for their recommendations, and they said "Bill's". We gave it a try, and we're glad we did. So much so that we went back a second night. On both occasions the broiled crab cakes were quite good,... More

Thank goodness I made reservations way ahead of time. Bill's was one of the few places open on Thanksgiving in Chincoteague. We only had to wait a few minutes for our table, but it was obvious that others had to wait longer. If you did not have a reservation, I don't think you could be seated until very late. It... More

Appetizers way better than the meals, Oyster aficionados don't bother. Super small not worth the $. Clean good wait staff, better than most places on the island.

This is a very well-run restaurant with an excellent menu. The quality of the food is consistently good. Seafood dishes were very well-prepared and the desserts were fabulous. Excellent friendly service. Have eaten here about half a dozen times and it is always great. Try the pecan pancakes for breakfast.
