“Outstanding experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2011

We went in for a Sunday afternoon lunch and discovered they did not open until 5 p.m. for dinner. Not knowing if that was what we wanted to do, we asked an outgoing, cheerful employee for a dinner menu and subsequently made reservations for later that evening.

Arriving for dinner, we were greeted as returning family, given a wonderful table with a beach view and treated to an outstanding dining experience. Tim, our waiter, was experienced, respectful (we are seniors...and did not hear a single 'You Guy's all evening) and promptly fulfilled our requests. What a treat!

When our Baby Back ribs were presented, they were huge!! Moist, perfectly cooked, accompanied by three BBQ sauces, our palates like food perhaps with a little more spice bite...but compared to the overall dining experience, that was trivial.

...back to the upbeat employee who went out of her way to help us that afternoon...we saw her again that evening and it turns out this bubbly, extremely helpful individual is Denise, the General Manager!

My congratulations to Denise and to the Staff she has trained and put together. Her efforts resulted in a totally pleasurable dining experience. Thank You!!

“Wonderful restaurant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2011

Just had the most fantastic evening at Bandon Bill's. My son had the Prime Rib which was exceptional. Not usually a prime rib fan but would definitely choose to have this if dining here again. I had Scampi with Linguine which was delicious. My other son had crab which he was able to choose from the live tank.
Beautiful view and the staff were friendly and attentive without being intrusive. I thought the food was very good value too. Was slightly put off by the fact that the restaurant was next to the Best Western Motel but went because of the reviews I had seen. So glad that we went and wish we live nearer!!

For the best golf in Bandon head for Bandon Crossing and for the best food don't miss Bandon Bill's and make sure you get Sarah as your waitress.

“Wonderful view, excellent food, service okay.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2011

We stayed at the best western inn right next to the restaurant and went to bandon bills grill for dinner.
We got a table at the window and the view was wonderful. There also were binoculars to enjoy the view even more. We didn't know there was even live music to enjoy. The service was slow but it was definitely worth it, because the food was so good that we almost fell off our chairs. Excellent pasta and delicious fish. Yummy! If you have the chance then go to this place.

“Great food, entertainment, and hospitality!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2011

Wait staff was very personable & helpful without overdoing it, and while the food was great, the best part was when they let our daughter hold one of the live lobsters! Best live entertainment we could've found on short notice!
