Last Saturday we had the fried oysters as an appetizer and they were perfect. My wife ordered the Snapper Ponchartrain and I ordered the Kentucky Lake Carp. The snapper was a bit too spicy for my wife so I swapped my carp for her snapper. We were both so surprised and impressed with the carp. Please keep serving local fish;... More

I have only been there one time but it was an inspiring meal. Entrees include a modestly (just right) sized salad, a starch and a vegetable as well as protein. My deep-fried oysters were the best I have had anywhere, even on the Gulf. They were very large, succulent, juicy and just outstanding. The breading was very good and they... More

Bill's is perfect for foodies who love an always-changing menu packed with seasonal ingredients. The appetizers, entrees, and desserts are freshly prepared on-site each day, resulting in cuisine that's innovative and delicious. The portions are appropriately sized and well-priced, considering the quality of the ingredients and thoughtful preparation. Bill's is my go-to choice for out-of-town business guests.

The food was excellent and the service equal. Atmosphere was nice. You could actually hear your table partner. NO loud hip hop music. Small and really nice.

Wonderful place to have a nice dinner as a couple or with friends. Not a great place for the kiddos so get a babysitter. Everything about my meal was great all they way from my House salad with home made dill sauce dressing and home made Walnut Bread. My wife ordered a fruit cup because she is not a salad... More

Small cozy spot with tons of ambience! Elizabeth was our server and was so professional, attentive, and friendly. Menu is varied. Favorites at our table were the filet and pork chop. These features were absolutely wonderful. Prices were average and well worth the money. Reservations are recommended. Our group drove 45 minutes to go to this restaurant and am looking... More

Atmosphere is intimate and just wonderful. I would suggest reservations and the dining area is small. The menu changes often but mine and my wife's dishes were wonderful as was the fresh walnut bread.
