The place is dirty, mugs and dishes are chipped. Food is bearable, just too dirty. Bathroom is horrible. You know what they say, bathroom dirty don't eat there. Gross

I ordered the fish sandwich and it was so fresh and tender that it wouldn't stay in the bread! Wonderful fish and good service. I don't usually go to lunch while I am working but this made my day so much better. Great place and I will definitely stop there again!!

Stayed at the motel across the street and thought we would try this place for breakfast. Basic diner menu, but the food was very good and fresh. Would visit again if in the area.

Friends drove us over an hour to go to lunch at bills diner. I wouldn't make the drive again. It was a disappointment. I do like diners, but this one is worth going out of my way for. I had a barbecued pork sandwich; it was thinly sliced pork, rather dry, with some barbecue sauce spread over it. If I'm... More

We sat down at the breakfast bar, and there was a big swarm of flies. Regardless, we ordered breakfast for 3 adults and 2 kids. While we were waiting for our food, the waitresses were fighting with the cooks. After listening to the angry cooks screaming at the waitresses we got up and left. We waited an hour and 15... More

We always stop at this diner anytime we make a trip to norwich. They have an extensive menu and nightly specials.

The desserts are huge-Cakes,pies, canoli,baklava,... More

I understand that small towns shut down early. One night, we ended up taking a late nap. We were hungry when we woke up but realized that nothing was open except for Bill's Diner. We ended up being the only people there and we were treated like royalty. The food is excellent and I would recommend that anyone in the... More
