Best restaurant on the Island. Right on Main Street and very upscale food, waiters and amazing service. Reservations are a must even in the off season and even during the week. They rock all week long. The Oysters Rockefeller were drop dead fabulous!

We have had many nice lunches here over the years. Returned today with great anticipation. The clam chowder (always one of our favorites) was mostly broth - few potatoes and not many clams. Sandwiches (chicken club and turkey club) proved to be uninspired. The turkey club was also of epic proportions. If it had been better, it would have made... More

The name here is also Bill's Prime, because good, high quality steaks are also served. This is a long- standing restaurant in Chincoteague, with a very good reputation for service and food. We enjoyed a Saturday evening meal, choosing seafood appetizers and the prime rib and filet. All were excellent and service was prompt.

We went to Breakfast at Bills while on the Island, the food was the greatest. And the service is above and beyond. The Breakfast menu is extensive but since I am a meat and potatoes (or grits) kind of guy at breakfast I stayed pretty simple, however the various choices coming out of the kitchen for other guest were pretty...

Stopped here after visiting Wallops Flight Center (launch postponed) with friends for lunch. Waitstaff was very friendly and great since it is not crowded as it is off season. Many options to choose from.....the grouper sandwich was huge, crab cake, chicken salad with pineapple and grill chicken sandwiches all were very good. Tried the coleslaw with Granny Smith Apple quite... More

My mom and I dropped dined at Bill's twice on our weekend visit to see the ponies. The food was superbly fresh and tasty. Best raw oysters I've ever eaten! I had the stuffed flounder which was "to die for." If was extremely filling. I would prefer not to have the shrimp on it next time as they were a... More

This establishment has been highly regarded in the past and I was anxious to go back and try it again. The quality of the food I'd rate as between good and very good, but the size of my main entree left much to be desired considering the price and the location of the restaurant. Service was very good but I... More

We stayed in this lovely town over Thanksgiving weekend and I am so glad that I found this place and made reservations for Thanksgiving. My husband ordered the traditional meal and I ordered off the regular menu; both of us were extremely pleased. Our four year old LOVED the applesauce too! We enjoyed the meal so much we came back...

This is our first visit to Bill's in eight years and it still astounds me on the quality of the food. The portion sizes are very generous and the great quality of the food. One order included the Grouper sandwich which was extremely large along with the homemade chips. The second order was the oyster po-boy and fries with a... More
