If you’ve not eaten at Bill’s Seafood Restaurant then you are remiss. Great food, drinks, beer and entertainment. The servers and bartenders are happy; always smiling. Summertime outdoor seating too. The quintessential seafood house…go right now!

If you like to eat fried seafood on paper plates with plastic forks at the neighborhood bar this is the place for you. We were definitely not as welcome as the regulars.

We got take out and the lobster rolls were tough. The chowder was good. Service is always good and the staff is pleasant, but definitely not as good as the other times we have been there. Hopefully they were just having an off day!
