Ate here while in town for vacation. We had Carlee as our waitress and she was wonderful. I had the ribeye and my wife had the sweet tea fried children. Both were excellent. In addition to excellent service we also got to meet the owner Bill. He came over and welcomed us and checked on us several times. We watched Bill do this will all of his guests. We were very impressed and will definitely be back.

Thank Chris I

Went for dinner with my family. We have never eaten here before, although we've lived here for more than a year. We were greeted immediately and taken to a table in the middle of the room that had a view from every direction. Our waitress Jennifer was prompt, informative, friendly and attentive. The food was amazing and fresh and had so much flavor. We even decided to get fresh warm beignets for dessert and while we waited got a couple scoops of gelato to pass around the table. Our entire meal was noteworthy from start to finish. We will definitely be back!!! Thank you Jennifer for a fantastic experience!! You rock !!

Once again, Bill's is great. I come to gulf shores probably 20 times a year and always eat at Bill's. The food is always excellent, the service is attentive, and it's the best value on the beach. Order the smoked tuna dip and the fish of the day Bienville style and you can't go wrong.

We read the rather mixed reviews, but decided to try it. Glad we did! Excellent service. Ayce shrimp for $9 and margaritas for $3! The fried shrimp were great with a light batter. Cole slaw was excellent! We will be back!!

Finally a restaurant who "gets it" about accommodating the physically disabled. They have an elevator and they are "elevated" so my brother could actually enjoy the view. Fantastic place and very accommodating. Thank you!
