Bill's is a treasure. I went 3 times this week. For my taste, dinner is better than lunch, so I'm rating this for dinner. This time, I had Halibut Madras - just the right hint of curry, and topped with diver scallops. The fish and scallops were perfectly cooked - the fish firm but still succulent and the scallops with... More

The is my "go to" restaurant when I want to dine in a restaurant that has tablecloths on the tables in Owensboro. My wife and I usually go to Bill's 6-8 times a year and we have never been disappointed. Reservations are suggested because they have limited seating. I always have some type of a fish dinner because Bill is... More

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.
