We recently dined here for lunch. I had the lunch special: shrimp and crabmeat quesadilla. And, special it was: lots of shrimp and crab, red onion, cheese, and peppers. I dipped it into a spicy tomato sauce. My wife had an equally delicious club sandwich. The skinny fries, while not hand cut, were cooked just right with a spicy seasoning.... More

Service was lackluster and the waiters were barely polite. I get that its a seafood restaurant, but the chicken was neither well-cooked nor flavorful. There are surely better options on the island.

Immediately seated upon arrival and warmly greeted and welcomed by Linda. Many past years spent as a waitress/bartender myself, I appreciate someone whose got what it takes to be a top notch server and Linda was that and more. Seafood allergies prevented me from eating what I truly desired. I chose the grilled chicken sandwich sans the bacon and the... More

Had the stuffed shrimp. Delicious food and great service! Walked right in and got a seat, although they prefer reservations.

There is an extensive menu and our meals were perfectly prepared and served promptly. The complimentary cheese and crackers were a nice surprise and the bread was excellent. The tropical shrimp salad was unusual and delicious! I would definitely return to Bill's Seafood!

We went there for dinner this evening. The food and service were excellent. It was busy,so a reservation is recommended. French onion soup was amazing. We'll definitely go back.

Got into Chincoteague and was looking for a place to eat. I went to tripadvisor and found Bill's Seafood Restaurant. I decided to go there and get something to eat. The place was going for the Causal High End look. This effort in my opinion was not achieved. That is no way reflects the rest of my experience or opinion.... More

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
