This is basically the only place to eat if you bike from Cumberland to New Orleans. It has its unique atmosphere and very unique Maryland fare. I don’t think there is anything light on the menu, but after biking 40 miles it all tastes good.

This is a down-home plain old redneck bar just off of the C&O canal in a Little Orleans. Just head up the hill and veer left and Bill’s will be in sight. Opened in 1968 they are celebrating their 50th anniversary and behind the bar...More

Pretzels, beer, crab cake and fries. The reward for a 50 mile bike ride. Our dollar is on the ceiling and we hope Bill’s in business for a good long time.

After a long cycling day, pulling up to Bill's place was a treat. Basic but delicious food fare (fried cod was very tasty) and great beer selection. Very welcoming atmosphere with locals hanging out around the bar. Will definitely return if back in that area.

Anybody who gives this place less than a 4 must be very thin-skinned or just doesn't get it and should stay at home, never having adventures. The beer is cold, the food is tasty, artery-clogging bar fare, not bland vegan crud. The people there are...More

I got my answer. When we biked through last Tuesday, Bill's Place was closed. A sign on the door stated that it was closed Monday and Tuesday.
