Sorry to say that, in my opinion, Bills has diminished in both the food selection and atmosphere. Seems the menu has gotten stale, very limited to begin with. I’m not a seafood lover, so, my choices are few. I had a beef dish last night...More

Wonderful food. You will usually need reservations. Lots of area businesses have company dinners here. Really good salmon with crab, scallops are phenomenal! The menu varies weekly. The lunches with my friends are the best great sandwiches and salads! Full bar too! Love this place...More

Best of the best. Noted chef preparations served in quiet atmosphere with personal attentive servers. Try it for a special occasion or as a special treat to yourself or a group. We look forward to a return.

The restaurant is well known as a special occasion kind of place. The prices are a little high, but the food is excellent and it’s small, so a good intimate setting for dinner.

The service is impeccable. The food is outstanding. The fish dishes we had last night, (wolf and walleye), were exceptional in their flavor. The wines are well chosen. This is simply the best restaurant in Owensboro. The chef and the staff are harmonious. Bravo.

Bill is a fabulous chef and the menu changes daily. I'd suggest you call (a few days ahead) and ask if there will be vegetarian options and to make your reservation. Enjoy!
