I've enjoyed every minute I spent at Bills. The food is great and lightning fast. The beer is cold and at a good price. But the real pleasure is Jack and his wife! He is Bill's son and now owns the bar. The bar usually...More

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.

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.

Nice location between Hancock and Harpers Ferry. Honestly, what else is out there on the C&O? Having said that, I enjoyed an excellent cheeseburger and my fellow cyclists were happy with their orders. We owe a huge debt to our waitress for the follow tip:...More

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.
