Hungry For A Good Time? I opened my restaurant (some call it a dive, but whatever) back in 2011 for two reasons. I wanted the good people of Fairhope, Alabama to have a no frills place where they could kick back and enjoy an afternoon or evening of live music, lively conversation, and killer grub. Also, I needed a place to smoke and serenade my delicious bacon. Located on Highway 181-formerly Highway 27, hence my original name, Old 27 Grill-Bill-E's is where locals and vacationers alike come to throw their cares and their diets to the wind. I welcome you to do the same. - Bill E
