Ate here about a month or so ago......wife and I went down to check out the area and look at some houses for summer vacation.
Ordered coconut shrimp as an appetizer, and it was great. Then again, coconut + shrimp are among life's most perfect pairings, and I don't recall ever ordering coconut shrimp that I didn't like....so take that for what it's worth!
I ordered the cream of crab (and coming from someone from the eastern shore of Maryland who grew up crabbing and whose grandmother made the best crab dishes known to all mankind) and it was very very good. My wife, who likes crab, but doesn't go out of her way to order it like I do, couldn't keep her spoon out of my bowl. Again, very good.
For dinner, I ordered the flounder (when in Rome....) stuffed with crab imperial, scallops, and shrimp. I don't often order fish, but I knew if there was going to be a good place to order flounder, it should be Chincoteague.....and it did not disappoint. The flounder was HUGE and everything else was perfect. It was excellent.
For desert, based on the travel agent lady's recommendation, we ordered the chocolate cake....don't remember the exact name, but it was made in several layers, and it was probably the best chocolate anything I have ever eaten.
Anyway, Bill's is one of those places where if you are in Chincoteague and you want a memorable and fantastic meal, this place is an absolute must. We will be back every time we are ever in Chincoteague. Guaranteed.
And have others have mentioned, or errr...complained about, the lighting is low. However, I don't go to places for the lighting....or for the seating area while you wait for a table....I go for the quality of the meal.
And by the way, MAKE RESERVATIONS. Even in February/March....
PS - complaints about calories?? At a seafood restaurant? Seriously?? You don't go here to count calories, you go here for a fine quality meal. You want to count calories? Try a 6" veggie sub from subway. Sheesh.
