Some would feel they should never change, but a bit of sprucing up would be nice. Same old newspaper clippings hanging from the wall for 10 years, place looks tired. Wait staff all pleasant young ladies who do a nice job. We were in and out for breakfast in about 15 minutes which must be a record. Eggs cooked just... More

No place better than Bill's for breakfast/lunch on the north end. Be prepared to wait on a weekend as it's a "fave" for lots of Islanders. Pancakes for kids are terrific--very creative. Staff is efficient, friendly and clearly locals. Good folks. Note: it's "cash only".

We had pancakes, french toast, and particularly good scrambled eggs. Everything was really good but I don't quite understand the James Beard award.

First. Shout out to Krissy- best waitress ever. You can tell she never stops working and her goal is to make her tables happy. Very sensitive to food allergies. My daughter loved her dolphin pancake!

We were just there this past weekend. The place was packed and we had a twenty minute wait for a table of 6. Plenty of selection, good food at reasonable prices and the service was friendly and attentive. We all enjoyed our meals wry much!
