Our waitress was terrible. She was very distracted by coworkers that were walking by and talking to them while taking our order. There were 7 people in my party. She never took our drink order, just asked what food we wanted. 4 of us got the buffalo chicken sandwich. It was supposed to be a grilled piece of chicken breast. It was more like canned chicken formed into a patty and warmed up. It was so mushy and gross. 1 person ordered a cheeseburger with an egg on top, she got the same mushy "chicken" patty with egg. Another person ordered a burger with no mayo. It came out dripping with mayo. We had a child that ordered a kids burger with pickels, fries and milk. HIs milk was never brought out, and he didn't get his pickles. Everyone's fries were cold and soggy.
I've been here twice before and it was phenomenal. The chicken sandwich was delicious and juicy and the fries were warm and crisp. That is why we came back, because I raved about the restaurant and the food. This visit was a complete disappointment.

Took about 1 minutes after being seated for anyone to acknowledge me and my guest and even bring us water. When food arrived, was very messy and cold, asked for Chipotle aioli and waitress forgot multiple times so had to ask hostess for help. Would not suggest.

Even though its a total tourist trap on certain days/certain times of the year, the restaurant is huge and its easy to get a reservation and the food is decent and fairly priced for the area. Has been one of my neighborhood go to's since in opened 9 or 10 years ago.

Aside from being out of several beers/drinks that we asked for the experience was a good one. Think they may have been a little under staffed. Service was quite slow. It was very busy though. Beautiful spring day in NYC.

We had 5:00 reservations on a Friday night, we arrived a 1/2 hr early and we were seated immediately. Our waitress was very attentive, the food was delicious and we ate at our leisure and even lingered a while after we were done. We were not rushed out and overall had a wonderful meal and amazing experience.

One of the few places left in midtown where I can meet a friend and have a delicious lunch from a menu with many good choices that won't break the bank. Nice atmosphere, good service and a happy place!

Had a great experience at this restaurant. The food was great and reasonably priced. Slight criticism would be the booth we were sat in, barely enough room for four adults

The seating was a bit cramped but the waitress was friendly and attentive.
They didn't have the hard cider I like (it's a common one) and there weren't many choices for a replacement but the burgers were excellent.

The service was quick and the food was decent. My concern was that my boyfriend found a piece of plastic in our Brussels sprouts. Seemed like a broken off piece of a container cover. Didnt hurt him and thankfully he didnt swallow it, but it was just alarming that it was there in the first place!

This is a burger place—and big and bustling, with a midtown vibe. But my turkey burger was top notch and overall it was a great place to get a reasonably priced Midtown lunch.

What a let down... service was terrible, table and chairs wobbled, and the food took forever. The waitress put in my order wrong then lied about it. The food was mediocre. The plastic table covers were sticky and gross!
Don’t eat here!!!

Our waiter was great! He was attentive but the food was not! Burger was sent out under cooked, and I like medium rare but this was raw. When the new burger was sent out it was cooked appropriately but they sent out with cold fries. My son’s burger was fine, but his onion rings were cold. The soup was flavorful and it was hot on the surface but the center was barely warm. Our server corrected everything but it doesn’t bode well on the establishment not getting food temps correct!

We had been to Bills before and had drinks at the bar & had a good time. We checked out the menu and thought it looked good. Unfortunately, the food we ordered this evening was very mediocre, quite a disappointment. The portions were small and burgers didn’t come with fries, everything had to be ordered separately. The fries were served cold and the wine was not a generous pour.

Great spot - if you are looking to just relax and not break the bank while getting some good food - this is the spot. I would call it very high quality BWW - really a great spot. Great for sports watching as well. We were looking for something simple with an NYC feel and this place hit it out of the park. Food was great - the shrimp burger was fabulous. Service was top notch. Great for kids as well.
