Quality is seasonal vine ripened tomatoes and crisp leaf lettuce still glistening with garden dew. It's smoked bacon and premium cheeses and an uncompromising commitment to providing you the best.

“Totally by Accident”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2013

We tried this place quite by accident, going with no idea what to expect. The menu was varied, the bar was stocked well, the service was great. We had scampi over pasta, quite delicious. Salad was good, too. We did not get to try their signature bread so we will save it for the next time. A very local place but no pretense. The staff was very welcoming. A very interesting building.

“Good Food in a Historic Building”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2013

Went to Bill's for the first time in over a year. I always enjoy the historic setting and the food has always been decent. Had the 2 for $22 special with my brother. Good value, but the food is only average at best. I had the Southern Platter which included pulled pork, crispy chicken breast, french fries and biscuits. The pork was fine, but the chicken was tasteless and don't get me started on the "biscuits" - they were just dinner rolls. Service was very good and they do have an OK selection of craft beers, mainly in bottles. If I was to go back again, I would stay clear of the special menu and just order something off the regular menu.

“Great Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2013

This is the second time we've had a wonderful lunch at the tavern after a morning visit to Sayen Gardens. Bill's is in a landmark building, visible mainly from the inside as outside looks pretty contemporary. Twice we've had the best mussel appetizer ever. Hamburgers and sandwiches are great. Can't speak for the rest of the menu, but it looks interesting. Lots of locally, crafted beers available, also. Since it's only a few miles from Sayen Gardens, it makes a great combo visit.
