We’d made reservations for a nice meal at Bill’s Prime Seafood and Steaks on Main Street. When we arrived just a few folks were seated, reflecting perhaps the early hour (6:00pm on a Sunday) or the off-season. It certainly wasn’t because of the food, which we would appreciate throughout our delightful dining experience. Our engaging waitress provided us with excellent... More

I go back wit this restaurant for 'over 25 years. I loved the 'old Bills'. Regulars use to come in a back door. Lot of the waitress's had been there for years. Breakfast and lunch were great, casual but always good. Rarely went for dinner. The restaurant changed hands several years ago the Malone's retired. I wrote a review 2-3... More

In a week of crab cakes from Myrtle Beach, Charleston, Savannah, and more we thought these were the lump crabbiest,buttery deliciousness we had been hoping for. Our entrees were scallops and a stuffed flounder- both really good. Very competent wait staff, professional and friendly. And it was a good value

Bill's is a gem on the island. A fine dining establishment that is very down to earth., The food and the service were excellent. The wine list was the best we saw not he island. The restaurant is small and reservations would surely be in order anytime, but especially in season. It was clearly occupied by both tourists and islanders.

Have tried them all on the island and Bill's is the best hands down. If you want a nice environment with great service and food you will talk about for days, this is the place. I had oysters for an appetizer, the tropical shrimp salad, and crab cakes. Everything was fresh and tasty.

Have eaten at this restaurant for over 40 years. Was impressed at the interior design. It was gorgeous, redone since I had been here a couple of years ago. But of greatest note was the food! If you enjoy fried oysters and have not eaten them at Bill's, find a way to get there. Tender, lightly breaded and tasty. There... More

We stopped and had dinner and drinks. When we arrived, the place was full, and we were asked if we had reservations. We did not, but only had to wait for 5 minutes on a table. Perfect time to look over the menu! We bought a bottle of wine, ordered appetizers and then enjoyed an excellent meal. The waitress was... More
