Took my grandson for a lobster roll for lunch. I ordered the RI clam chowder (clear broth) while he ordered the New England clam chowder as appetizers. He ordered the hot lobster roll while I got the cold lobster. Both were loaded with lobster meat and very delicious.

Took a ride to the beach and stopped st Bill's for dinner Have been there many times and they never disappointed us. Every night has a different format of entertainment. Very comfortable place. Great seafood at reasonable prices Friendly staff. If weather is good, sit outdide.

Always excellent from staff to service to spectacular inventive entrees and appetizers... Loved it all. Russian oysters, Mahi sandwich, soy glazed oysters, even the fried chicken basket was fun and exactly what one needed at the time... A place to enjoy and savor all year round. Check this place out for fun, food, a fantastic experience and a bridge that... More

Living in... More

Happen to be in CT lately and stopped in to visit Bill's after many years, and it is as great as ever. Consistently good food, service and ambiance. Treat yourself to a local favorite.

I love Bills, it's casual, fun and incredibly consistent. Whenever I have company at my beach house, we have to go to Bill's for a meal and everyone always loves it. On busy weekends you might have to wait up to 40 minutes for a table outside - but it's worth it. We often eat at the bar if it's... More
