“Shorted almost 20 oysters!”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

We go there quite often, but tonight they were grossly understaffed to the point where our shucker shorted us about 20 oysters in our bucket (which was $30) And you couldn't order any additional food or drinks if you tried. Beyond disappointed that this happened!!!

“Great seafood at decent prices!”
Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

Great crab legs and they have a lot of specials on food and drink. Definitely a jeans type crowd. Low key and a fun place for seafood.

“snow crableg platter”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

ellen and i, ellen being my lady friend of 8 yrs going on a strong 9, paid our second visit to Bill's. the first time we went was in i'm gonna guest but i think it was the saturday bama lost to texas a&m. good game that's why i remembered it, becuz it was on the tv in front of the table we sitting at. but, being a noles fan i really didn't care either way. matter a fact i think is was weekend the noles whooped up on duke like 48-7. ellen got us great sits 30yd line like 5 rws off the field, great game and even better time being it was just me and her. usually theirs about 5-10 of us and we really don't get to sit and cheer for the noles together, she likes to raise alittle hell to during the game. she also likes to flirt with the football players this time it was dusty hopkins, before it was christian ponder. but, little did she know while she was flirting with the players i was doing my own flirting with the cheerleaders, which the noles have some pretty ones. anyway, back to my review, like i said this was our second trip to bill's and this time wasn't quit as good. allot of the legs had about half beat and the rest was empty, nothing, allot of empty space. but, they did make up for it by adding a few more clusters on the plate, some extra potatoes too. when we went the first time i'm guessing the snow crabs were alittle more in season. becuz these legs were big and full of plenty of crab meat, really good stuff. i think we even had the shrimp appetizer which was really good also. so, all in all i'd give bill's a two thumbs up just kinda keep in mind when the crablegs are best in season and u'll do fine. atmosphere is oyster bar with high top tables pretty cool typical oyster bar set up. gotta say one thing the corn on the cob was like soggy mush, i took a couple of bites and i was good. other than that bill's is a really good place for seafood be it crablegs and i noticed some pretty dadgum big oysters on some of the other tables. better than your miller ale house and other chain places. also, ellen told they play heavy metal music come night fall which i'm into but she's not. so, seafood and metal is ur thang hit up bill's u won't be disappointed. HELLYEAHHH!!!!! peace out, Hawk dagumit go noles!!!

“Really Enjoyed”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

Was never much of an oyster eater until I ate oysters here. Freshly shucked and served. The cocktail sauce could use a little more spice but they gave plenty to spice with (They have to please the masses, not me) .
Went a second time and had grilled fish and partner had a burger (yeah I know)...both great. Even the burger was fantastic and the fries were excellent. Cannot wait to go some more.
