Had a wonderful dinner at Bill's. Found it on Trip Advisor upon our arrival and made a reservation. Within walking distance of the Hampton Inn where we were staying so we walked. Lovely decor, dimly lit - good for a romantic dinner, although just as welcoming for friends and families as well. We were seated on time and our waitress,... More

Not just for dinner. I had dinner here before, but some friends told me Sunday was special. There was a line and that told me it must be good. I had the Country Chicken Biscuits which were crispy fried breast, on biscuits, topped with sausage gravy, and served with a side of hash brown casserole

But also not thrilled. I had the (non-lump) crab cakes that were made with hollandaise sauce. Good but not great. My wife had the filet mignon and asked to have it "au jus." We were convinced the juice was French onion soup put in a small container. Wait staff was friendly and attentive. This was one of those cases where... More

First time we tried to eat there (without a reservation), we were told the wait would be at least 60 minutes. Without any space to await a table, we went to another restaurant. Second time had a reservation which was honored promptly. Service was generally good, but at times rushed. Seafood was good but not necessarily exceptional. We found another... More

Everything was pretty much perfect, from the food to the service. It's a small place so it probably gets packed during busy season. Best oyster stew in the entire world. Also they can help you out with gluten free and food allergies. Prices were good for a high end place

Excellent meal and service at Bill's Seafood Restaurant. Dined there last Thursday for dinner. My husband had Filet Mignon w/ Broiled Shrimp and I had a NY Strip Steak w/ Crab Imperial, Asparagus & Hollandaise Sauce. One of the best meals I have had in a long time. Atmosphere is quiet and lights are dimmed. Server was extremely friendly and... More

In nearly a week on the island, we visited Bill's Prime three times: once for a quiet supper for two; once for a business lunch; and once for a supper with friends. Each time was a different, delicious experience, and the people are extremely friendly. I especially appreciate that the gluten-free items are clearly marked on their menu. I would... More

My husband always orders their flounder and it is always great! I ordered the Chincoteague fried oysters. I would have preferred less breading, but they were still delicious.
