We had an absolute fantastic breakfast here enjoyed with mimosas! Staff is incredibly friendly and efficient. Great menu with fresh seafood and centrally located. Will definitely be stopping by to try lunch and dinner!

We always eat a Bills when we visit the island. Good food and service. Never had a bad meal at this restaurant and the service has always been good. I had crab cakes and my wife had the liver and onions. My wifes liver was a little over cooked, but had a good taste. We were given a complementary desert.

A perfect place to visit for lunch on a cold, blustery day. The restaurant was very cozy and comfortable. Almost every table was taken. Our waitress was amazing..she appeared like magic every time we needed a refill. She was not stressed with the amount of tables around her. The fried grouper was over sized and lightly fried. The fish itself... More

Have been going here when vacationing/visiting Chincoteague for over 25 years. When the Malone's sold years ago was not that happy w/new upscale pretentions but over time now I feel they have settle into what they do and at least at dinner do it very well. Where in the past were mainly here for breakfast and lunch now almost only... More

We made reservations the day after Christmas after a family member telling us we MUST eat at Bill's and had a reservation for 8 pm. We arrived to a small crowd waiting all had reservations. We waited about a half hour to be seated, but once seated we were treated to excellent service and delicious food. Despite the waiting patrons... More

We were visiting Chicoteague for a few days of Christmas bird-watching and decided to give Bill's a try for dinner after hearing the place recommended by the desk staff at our hotel. Fortunately, they also recommended that we make reservations, since the place was crowded on Christmas night. Many people had to be turned away at the door due to... More

Me and my husband visited here for our birthdays and we had a really good time. The menu was pretty good and offered some different items. The prices weren't to bad for the portions you received. The waiter was very friendly and the place was clean and cozy. The food was delicious, we also ordered dessert which was very good.... More

We ordered the seafood platter....I don't know how one person could eat it all. We shared ours and had left overs! The server was friendly, courteous, and very helpful. Excellent meal all around. The crab dip was perfect!!

Had dinner the day after Christmas. Almost everything in town was closed down - most restaurants. Bill's was open! Went there for first time in many years - big change. Place was packed and we needed a reservation, naturally. Ambiance and food was excellent! We'd go back on next visit - it matches our 2 or 3 other restaurant faves... More
