We love Bill's. We've made two afternoon excursions from Beacon, NY down to Westbrook and love to come and take in the Westbrook-Saybrook shoreline which is alw...ays so peaceful. Twice we have made Bill's our destination and have come away feeling satisfied each time. Wonderful place with an excellent bar and food. We highly recommend their New England Clam Chowder. It's the best I've tasted outside of Boston-Cape Cod area and you don't have to drive the Extra 2 1/2 hours to get it. See More

It was a great place. The long line to wait for outdoor seating moved very quickly. Since they don't have AC it's better to sit outdoors. I wish they had more o...utdoor lighting I like to see what I am eating. The drinks were reasonably priced. The wait staff was very friendly. The food was good. My only complaint is the lobster bisque. In my opinion only it was watery and not enough lobster. I had the the stuffed lobster it was delicous and my wife had the clam strip platter which she enjoyed. I would go back there again but this time earlier
To try to sit next to the tiki bar. The only draw back is they don't take reservations and don't take credit cards.

We were there for lunch on July 3rd. We had ordered a cup of chowder, fried calamari, a lobster roll and fried whole belly clams. Service was good considering... being particularly busy. Our food came out hot and everything was delicious especially my lobster roll. Excellent cole slaw came with out lunch platters too. Bill's is my favorite shoreline dining spot! See More

We sat at the bar. The service was fabulous. The Bloody Mary's were perfect. The Shrimp Cocktail, Clams on the Half Shell and Oysters were so fresh and deliciou...s. The whole belly clams were amazing. It was Labor Day and the weather couldn't have been better and Bill's was filled to capacity. Had a very leisurely afternoon. Never felt rushed or pressured to order. Will we be back? You bet we will!!!! See More

Fish and chips no flavor no seasoning all bland slightly overpriced. Linguine and clam sauce no flavor as well. The only thing they have that's good on the menu are the oysters on the half shell.

Went there a couple of years ago and my meal was awful. The french fries
were dry like they were left over from hours ago. The fish was terrible.
Friends want to go there this week so will see how the meal stacks up this time.
I would have been ashamed to serve the meal I had.

The parking area was full, so I thought the service would be slow and not very good, but was I wrong. The wait staff was quick and very friendly, and the food was top notch. This was my first visit but hopefully will return soon.

What's going on at Bill's? we've driven down twice this year,which is a hour and a half one way. first trip the worst service ever. couldn't get a drink for fif...teen minutes and the rest of the experiences went down hill from there. today July 15th, stopped in around six we were expecting a crowd being dinner and Saturday.We made it right to the bar and a water side table what luck so we thought. We sat at the table for more than eight minutes without any waitress acknowledging us . the couple next to us flagged down the first server they saw and gave them there check. the servers response was "I'll tell your waitress". she proceeded to walk by our table to the register station and then walked in the other direction .After ten minutes of no service we got up and left..WILL NOT BE BACK!!! Bill's thanks for two visits the terrible service.P.S. the only way to get this review was to select how many stars on your review believe me if it was listed i would have chosen a negative rating See More

Over rated seafood, mostly fried food, lobster roll is small served on a hot dog roll, only take cash and overpriced. A definite pass on this place no better than a chain restaurant.

Service was bad, never came back to table. Lobster roll was skimpy and tough, roll slightly toasted on one side and soggy on other side, fries were cold and hard, coleslaw was dry and no flavor. Not worth the high price.

Bill's is within walking distance from my home. I haven't been there in about a year. Took a friend who was in for a visit as I never took him there. Food was not good and neither was the drink I ordered. It probably will be another year before I go back.

Parking lot was crowded but plenty of seating for dining inside and outside. We sat next to the water and enjoyed the scenery, seagulls and nice weather. Food and service were great!

I love Bill's and go there fairly often. I went Sunday and sat outside. Food was awesome as usual but the service was dreadful. Some of my food was comped it arrived way after my companions. The waiter was great but he had too many tables. It wont stop me from coming back though even though my last 2 times were like this. See More

Fabulous chowder. Great oysters. Nice ambiance. Decent prices. Huge meaty whole bellies with no flavor. Bland fries. Bills should focus on putting some seasoning into their food.
