The Clam Chowder was the best I had ever had. And the staff were friendly and really took care of us. (Thanks Liz!).

“Consistently good seafood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013

During the last 7 or 8 years we've spent a week at Chincoteague, and meals at Bill's Seafood Restaurant are always a highlight. The fish and shellfish are always cooked very well, and some of the local dishes that combine the local oysters, smoked ham, etc. are particularly tasty. Our tradition is to eat a hearty breakfast at Bill's on the morning of our departure from the island, to remind us of another vacation at one of our favorite spots.

“Liked it”

The fish I had was nicely presentated on the plate and tasted well.
Service was great and friendly.
The lemon sorbet had a good taste and was not too sweet.

“Good food - but expensive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

It's a beautiful restaurant and a must try. But, we've been there so many times and the menu never changes, so it got kind of boring with us. It's also much more expensive than most of the places on the island. Good drinks - they don't skimp on the alcohol.

“Very Very Rude!!!!!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013

I have always enjoyed this restaurant and have recommended it many many times. HOWEVER, this past Saturday night changed my opinion. We had a reservation for 7PM. We arrived early (6:45 pm) and certainly had NO problem with the 6:30 pm and 6:45 pm reservations being seated before us, even when they arrived late. HOWEVER, several 7PM reservations arrived on time AND late and were seated before us. I actually watched two tables be seated in a very underhanded sneaky way because the maitre d knew the people!! Finally a couple arrived at 7:20pm for a 6:30p reservation and THEY were seated as we stood there in amazement!! We told the maitre d we were leaving and that we would not be dining there ever again!! We were treated very very poorly and I am very disappointed. The food is DEFINITELY not worth the rudeness from the staff!! When anyone else asks where the best restaurant in Chincoteague is, I will say AJs!!
