We were in Chincoteague for 3 days and 2 nights and managed to eat one of each meal at Bill's. The fresh flounder we had the first night was outstanding and the kids menu was better than we usually find at comparable restaurants. Our server David had a "system" that had us sitting at the table with water, crackers and... More

First off this isn't the first time I have eaten at Bill's but it is the first time I didn't order a dinner. We just wanted a couple of appetizers. I ordered a Passion Fruit Daiquiri, Oysters Rockefeller and Chicken City Chili Nachos. The drink was presented nicely but I thought a bit sour. The oysters were in my opinion... More

There are several good dinner choices on and around CI, but Bill's is the best. If you're coming to CI, and you've never been to Bill's, it's a must try. Several reviews are critical of the price, but I don't think it's much more expensive than other restaurants. Some items may be a few dollars higher ($1-$4)....but overall, I think... More

...but it was too pricey for me for what we got. The food was good, the server we had was very good, but paying $200.00 for 4 people for a meal (no dessert) was a bit too much for me.

The first place I go to when I arrive in Chincoteatue is Bill's Seafood. I usually order an entree which has always been pretty good. This time we ordered the "Chicken City Chili Nachos" and the Oysters Rockefeller. The nachos must have been from the bottom of the bag because they were mostly smaller broken pieces. They seemed to be... More

Pro, the restaurant was clean, service was good and the atmosphere was nice. I am a CIA graduate and grew up in the restaurant business. The only item that was very good was the clam chowder that came with the seafood platter, though it was cold. The coconut shrimp where over cooked and small shrimp. The seafood platter was over...

We had a most outstanding dinner at Bill's tonight! My wife had shrimp stuffed with crab imperial--one of the best things she has ever eaten! I had six delicious Chincoteague oysters, followed by shrimp and scallops brochette with angel hair pasta. Wonderful! Good bread to start and excellent service. Perfect meal!!

Thank Marlanman
