Our food and service were great. We started with the crabby fries and they were crispy and hot and the crab dip on top was so yummy. I had chicken pot pie with salad and vegetables and couldn't eat it all. Salad was very good on a large plate. Pot pie was double crusted and in a skillet. My husband... More

We've been coming here since they opened. We usually have a good experience and the food is good. But this particular night was off. First, it took forever for our order to come out. The waiter apologized and gave us 10 BBQ wings free as an apology. When our order finally did come out, my wings were raw. I told... More

We go here all the time, and always have a great meal. We love the crab soup, the wings and their service. You can't beat the prices and the menu is fairly diverse, including food for kids and light fare. We love to sit at the bar, eat, watch sports and play Keno! Fun night for a couple of fuddy-duddies.

Before I was on a fat-free diet, I enjoyed Bill Bateman's. Simple, not expensive and excellent chicken wings.

Great bar food and very friendly staff. Specialty drinks are good, but sometimes inconsistent, depending upon the bartender. If you're looking for a light atmosphere, where you can have fun and enjoy good eats at a very reasonable price, Bill Bateman's is the place. The wings, loaded nachos, chicken fingers and french fries are all good choices. Based on my... More

We tried Bill Bateman's for the first time and found the experience enjoyable for Happy Hour. Of course, one part of "happy" is not getting gouged for pub food and Batemans had very reasonable rail liquor drinks at $2.75 each and a variety of day-special half-priced appetizers. We ordered & shared the ten bbq wings for $5.99 and the hot... More

Went for dinner with my daughter. They were busy but not crowded. We ordered boneless wings as they were on special. Even at 79 cents each it seemed pricey. They wings however were very good. We each ordered a hamburger. She got the crabby burger and I a hamburger with mushrooms, swiss and bacon. The burgers were average, not bad... More

Variety of decent sandwiches and huge onion rings, but the chicken wings are not worth the cost. I think it was $11.79 for ten medium-to-small wings. Wing sauces and dry rubs are pretty good though. Our family went there in December 2015.

All was very good-food,service and ambiance. Truthfully the best crab cakes I have had in awhile. The owner, I believe, went out of his way to see all was good.

I have been taking my two middle school boys to Bill Bateman's a couple times a year to watch Sunday football for the past 3 years, and it has become a kind of tradition. We love the wings, and you can't beat the half priced burgers! They also have really great BBQ ribs! It really is more of a restaurant... More
