We have already eaten here twice this week and both times were very good. Going back Thursday night for steak night.
We had brunch on Sunday. Eggs Benedict were very good and you get a large portion. Crab cakes very well prepared and shrimp appetizer with fried green tomatoes very good.
Bloody Mary's are a house recipe and very tasty. They even offer a large one with a slider attached as a garnishment.
Waitress was excellent and so is the atmosphere. The owner was there and is very hands on.
Would be good for couple's or family.

Was really looking forward to a great seafood meal while we were at the beach. But it was not to be found here. The shrimp, oysters and fish were all over battered and they all tasted the same. You really could not tell any difference between them. We had the stone ground cheese grits were extremely dry, needed some salt and I could not tell that there was any cheese in them. The fries were ok.

We tried the gelato and bread pudding. They were both good. But for the price we paid the food should have been great.

My husband and I enjoyed our visit to Bill's during our recent vacation. The food was very good. I was a bit disappointed in the Steak Oscar. The steak was awesome and cooked just right, but the Oscar was lacking in seafood and taste. For an additional $10, I was expecting more seafood. My husband had the ribeye. He really enjoyed it and the fried potatoes. Service was good. We will eat here again in the future.

This place is OK, The food was good but just seemed cold and distant. Service was fine but just did not have a warm friendly atmosphere, The view is fantastic, it looks out over the public beach.

On our last day in Gulf Shores it was rainy and nasty, but having lunch at Bill’s by the Beach brightened our day. Our server DD was a real treat and the food was great. We will sure visit again on our next trip
