We have been many times to Bill's... every time, each and every time, every single time, all the time, the food is 'the best' of anything I have ever had. The service is awesome, the staff is friendly and knowledgeable about all the selections. The wine list is also exciting and unusual! I also love the ambience ( hate that... More

Began with a wonderful smoked salmon dip, paired with warm, soft house made chips. The entree consisted of scallops atop an asparagus spinach risotto. I believe there were also red peppers included. One of the really interesting flavors was the leaks placed below the scallops. They soaked up the risotto and the scallop flavor. We paired the meal with a... More

We went out for an evening with friends. We started with appetizers- crab cakes and goat cheese with chutney, then we had walnut bread, then salads with dressings made in house. Entrees included quail, rainbow trout and beef tenderloin. We were all so enjoyed our meals (and tastes of each others). Desserts were cream brûlée, brownie with caramel sauce and... More

Wait staff was super nice and efficient. Nice basic layout. Good looking menu that changes regularly. Salad was very good and bluefin app was very good. I ordered the deep fried oysters. They should be fresh and right out of the fryer with some crisp to them. They were soggy. Booo. And the string beans were shriveled and old/dry. My... More

Twice we've enjoyed this marvelous place. The service is unbelievably good - our salad forks were replaced after using them for hors d'oevres yay!! Bill's sense of how to cook seafood blows us away. Maine diver scallops - incredible. Halibut Marseilles - unbelievable. There is not enough good to say about this wonderful little place. And the fact that they... More

We have dined here on several occasions and always a fantastic experience. The food is uniquely prepared and delicious. If in Owensboro you must dine here at least one time. Be sure and call 24 hours in advance to reserve your table. It is that amazing.

Wonderful selection of fresh fish. I had the turbot from the North Atlantic breaded and pan fried delish. Nice wine and beer selection as well, a little pricy but the food quality was well worth the $.

My husband and I decided to try Bill's for lunch after coming to Owensboro to visit with our daughter. I had a wonderful bacon/egg salad sandwich with a side salad, while my husband had an Italian meat and cheese sandwich with fries. Both were very good and fresh. Service was good. We asked about reservations (it is a small restaurant)... More
