Got there about 2 on a Sunday in early April. Maybe a 15 minute wait. Ordered a pina colada, came in a plastic, very worn cup. Dinner was fish and chips. Fish was good, just wish the fries were as hot as the plate, but they were limp and just warm. Shrimp and chips for my husband which he liked,... More

I went to Pickle Bills for a co-workers birthday and i was amazed at all the things that were packed into this restaurant. It was a really unique decor. Beyond that, it is situated on water with a beautiful backdrop. Outdoor patio, picnic tables and lots of room to move about. It was a Thursday night, not very busy, but... More

Pickle Bill's is an excellent place to eat, all seasons. It is right on the Grand River and is really scenic in the Spring, Summer, and Fall. Even in the winter with the frozen river and snow on the ground it is still pretty. The interior of the resturaunt is "eclectic" and fun. The best part of the whole experience... More

If you like seafood, this is for you. Beef eaters too, but the seafood swims across the table way ahead of the cow. Offering several All You Can Eat items (Seafood and Beef) as well as a well balanced menu of items plus varied daily specials. Call Ahead for hours ans they do adjust seasonally. Coleslaw was a little disappointing... More

My husband ordered the all you eat prime rib and crab legs, $56.00. The prime rib was cooked perfectly, tender, juicy, and tasted great. I sneaked a piece.... More

Went with several family members. shared the lobster tail and the "all you can eat" Walleye.Found out the walleye was fried, but the first serving could be the baked, which is what I chose. The lobster tail was delicately flavored and tender. My first walleye, the baked was quite delicious. Subsequent fried walleyes were not so flavourful, too similar to... More
