Both breakfast and lunch were excellent. The food was delicious, well portioned, and at a reasonable price. When we visit the island again, we will definitely eat at Bill's. The grouper was excellent.

This is a must visits when you're in or around Chincoteague. My husband had 'smothered fish' which was done to perfection. The sauce with rich and flavorful without being the least bit over powering. I had the local delicacy of steamed oysters which were also done to perfections. Bills offered local wine and beer which my husband and I had... More

It's important to make a reservation for this popular restaurant. We arrived at 7pm on a Thursday night in mid September. The place was full and we were asked to come back in an hour. The food was excellent. Unfortunately we got a bad waitress who we didn't see for most of the meal. Finally managed to get another staff... More

The food and atmosphere are just average, kind of like a family restaurant but the prices are way way out of line. I sympathize with people with families. I was personally told by several business people in the area that their prices are that way because Bill's Restaurant is one of the first places that you get to when you... More

We celebrated my sister's bday here; it was great! The bday girl had the shrimp fettuccine alfredo, which she said was some of the best she's ever had. Others had the delectable crab cakes :) and the stuffed shrimp :) . We had a baby in our party that had the pasta w/ marinara and frankly ate so much we... More

All in all a great tasting meal with excellent service. We decided to share our diner after having 2 appetizers, and the server split everything onto 2 plates, which was really nice, since doing it at the table can become sort of a mess. The only thing was that we felt a bit rushed. We went to the restaurant at... More

Dinner was delicious. My husband had broiled seafood & said the flounder was the best he has had for some time. I had fried scallops & they were yummy. They also were as good as my other favorite restaurant.

Mom and I went for dinner. Food was very good and restaurant was clean. The server could have been a little more friendly but wasn't rude. He just wasn't very engaging. Would go back.

It didn't seem to matter that we had a reservation because couples who showed up with out one were seated first. Our waitress was very nice and we enjoyed the bottle of wine we selected but that was the highlight of our meal. My husbands surf and turf was mediocre. His fillet was well done instead of medium and his... More
