Great place if you are looking for a burger. Staff is friendly and helpful. We arrived early for our reservation because we didn't anticipate how long it would take to get out of the show correctly. The staff was very accommodating and put two high top tables together. Normally we don't like high top because of the stools, but these were very comfortable. Good experience and the food was just what we were looking for.

They got us in quickly. But our service was not the best. Took the waitress 10 minutes to get to our table. Food was ok. I asked for a medium burger and it was well done. Was afraid to ask for a new one because I thought it might take too long. I would probably try it again though. I liked the atmosphere and hopefully next time it will be better.

Had a lovely lunch here! Food was yummy and arrived quickly, very pleased considering it was very busy. Our puddings took a while to arrive however our waitress chased these up with the kitchen before we could even ask so this did not put us off! Can't wait to visit again!

After reading reviews and observing the crowd, we were expecting a great meal. My family had three burgers, fries, and chicken wings. None of the food was better than average. To be honest, we could have received the same quality at McDonald's for a quarter of the price. Also, when paying $4.00 for a fountain soda, I don't expect to see the bottom of the glass...I believe our glasses were empty more often than not.

We heard this was "THE PLACE" to get a burger while seeing the tree at Rockefeller Plaza. It is a VERRY LOUD family burger joint with not very good, but very OVER PRICED food (because of the location!) ....our burgers were nothing special. Too much bun. overcooked. Fries just OK. We had a reservation. but they were pushing you in and out to eat and leave pretty quickly. We were here on a Thursday night before the Rockefeller Christmas 7pm show. not impressed. Felt like a waste of money and time. Yes, Disappointed.

Totally disappointing. Four of us were seated at a high top table that could only comfortably seat two, making the dining very uncomfortable and close to impossible. When we asked for a larger table, we were told this was all that was available, even though we had made a reservation a month in advance! The table was not set, there were no utensils when our food was served, and we were given bathroom paper towels instead of napkins. The food was 'meh' and we didn't have dessert because we couldn't wait to get out of there. Will not return nor recommend.

Bill's was a good choice for the six of us ( after the Christmas Spectacular at the Radio City Music Hall) my wife, our four grandchildren ( ages 5, 9, 10 and 15), and myself. When we got there the place was packed to the rafters, we had reservations so we were seated within a few minutes. The wait staff couldn't have been more accommodating and patient. The food was just what the children would crave to sate their appetites. They have burgers any way you can imagine and then some. Food was good, at least no complaints from any of our group. The place was noisy, as to be expected, it made it more enjoyable. Our food came in a reasonable amount time, they know how to handle crowds. Wonderful time, I would recommend Bill's to anyone who wants to enjoy a good burger at a fun place.

Great place for some good food. Location was excellent. For such a large restaurant with so many people, the service was excellent. We had 2 small children and a stroller. They were very accommodating with putting the stroller out of the way. We were seated within 10 mins of arriving and we were 15 earlier than our reservation. Overall, great restaurant.

It was so busy the night we went. I was so thankful I made a reservation weeks earlier for a party of 6. Unfortunately they didn't have my open table reservation listed. Thank goodness I saved my confirmation and was able to show the hostess. Thankfully she did accommodate us. After we were seated it took about 15 min. ( and that was us asking) for a waitress to come and take our drink order. Once our order was taken the food came out quick. Overall the food was okay. The atmosphere wasn't bad. I am not sure we would come back.

I emailed restaurant directly 2weeks ago never heard so here we go:
Food - very good esp for price paid

Server - excellent!!

Drinks - excellent

Problem was leaving.
I cannot go thru the circular doors without having a panic attack, which I did walking in. Even the gentleman at the door asked if I was okay.
Leaving I see an open door where there was a manager (I think) holding the door open for food being wheeled in.
I waited, when done asked if I may go out that door.
Never have I been denied this request at any NYC restaurant. As they must have a regular door available!!!
The manager laughed at me and accused me of lying about not being able to go through the circular door. A gentleman at a table right there told me not to back down and he also had a panic attack and the manager had no right to deny my request!!!
Unknown to me my party was behind me. My 65 year old aunt and my daughter (who's birthday it was) and friend. The manager was rude to them when they offered to go back and exit thru the circular door.
This is no way to be treated. I just paid over 150 for burgers and beer!!! Was coming back for birthday drinks. Needless to say we did not!
Terrible way to be treated!!!

Looking for somewhere to eat ,not too expensive, near Rockefeller Center before The Rockettes show...everyone else had the same idea! We were promptly seated, a good sign I thought, the place was packed with both adults and kids, ( another good sign the food MUST be good )...and after being seated, Bills Bar and Burger forgot we were there. 20-25 minutes later, we had to get out of our seat to remind the hostess to remind our waiter, or ANY waiter, that we had been seated. Our order was FINALLY taken and another 20 minutes for drinks to show up! Our waiter was overwhelmed with the number of tables he had..not his fault ( I wait tables) but management for understaffing on what they had to know was going to be a busy night! Food was good, they forgot one or two items we had asked for and never came back with them, so I'd give it 3 stars..not for good as much as for service, which can ruin your first dining experience just as much as the food.
