My visit coincided with the various Oyster specials. I chose the pan roast, which is delicious. Not cheap but, you get what you pay for.

We had the crab dip which was not was so great but we also had crab cakes and filet which were fantastic! We ended the meal with flour less chocolate cake which was excellent. We'd definitely go again.

Our party of ten had a great breakfast get together. The sausage was particularly scrumptious. It was so good that we also booked Bills for dinner, Superb menu from calves liver to the grouper special. Everyone was happy with the food - and the wine - and the service

We went here for lunch and we loved their Crab Bisque! It was so creamy and fresh! It was very busy most nights so get here early to get a seat!

Bill's seafood restaurant was highly recommended to us when we asked about local restaurants while visiting Chinoteague Island so we made a reservation early in the afternoon for 7PM. We had finished our touring early and thought we would see if we could get in early (it was around 6:15), but the place was packed and we were told that... More

The ambience was wonderful and the food was superb. I had calamari, and my wife had about the most delicious oysters she can recall having. The people we dined with enjoyed their crab cakes and accompanying plates. A pleasant, friendly atmosphere. Kudos to the chef!

We make it a point to dine at Bill's at least once during our yearly visit to Chincoteague. Don't let the exterior "cement box" fool you... fine dining waits inside! Nicely decorated interior. Wait staff is attentive without being overbearing. Prices are reasonable, considering the generous portions. The cream of crab soup is the best on the island.

We dined at Bill's upon the recommendation of a local resident. Pleasantly quiet ambience, good food, mid-range prices that seemed fair enough given the generous portions.

Tried this restaurant because of some reviews we read. We were seated at a booth by the door, so everytime the door opened we froze. Also the parties waiting to be seated were right on top of our table. The waitress was very nice and friendly, but seemed busy. Ordered some raw oysters and crab dip. We got raw oysters... More

While the prices were high the meal was very good with the sole exception of the sidedish vegetables being limited in types and not of the quality of the main meal.
