Always excellent from staff to service to spectacular inventive entrees and appetizers... Loved it all. Russian oysters, Mahi sandwich, soy glazed oysters, even the fried chicken basket was fun and exactly what one needed at the time... A place to enjoy and savor all year round. Check this place out for fun, food, a fantastic experience and a bridge that... More

My family doesn't get together very often. It was a waste of an evening out going to Bill's. The tables were small. The room was very loud, the food was not good and the prices were higher than I would expect at basically a lobster shack. The lobster was flavorless and small. The Steamers were small and rubbery. Living in... More

Happen to be in CT lately and stopped in to visit Bill's after many years, and it is as great as ever. Consistently good food, service and ambiance. Treat yourself to a local favorite.

I love Bills, it's casual, fun and incredibly consistent. Whenever I have company at my beach house, we have to go to Bill's for a meal and everyone always loves it. On busy weekends you might have to wait up to 40 minutes for a table outside - but it's worth it. We often eat at the bar if it's... More

Hadn't been here in a few years as in the summer the place is always packed. We met two other couples here for lunch that were in state for our 50th college reunion (Go Quinnipiac class of 1962). My wife and I both had the hot lobster rolls and they were as good as EDD's (our standard of great hot... More

Stopped by for some fresh seafood on the last night of our New England journey. And we were not disappointed. The menu was large and varied. We stuck to seafood but the large slab of roast beef at the next table looked might good. But our oysters and lobster roll were excellent as were our unneeded desserts. As we were... More

This is a local seafood place that has a relaxed, beach like feel. We enjoyed a great fried seafood platter and a huge plate of fresh steamers on a recent visit. The fish could not have been fresher or more well prepared in typical New England style. Our waiter was friendly and attentive and the marina and water views from... More

This is a fun, popular place, but we found the food to be second rate and the service minimal. Don't get the Cobb salad; lobster roll mediocre.
