Love Bar Bills. Been to both locations many times. Although prices are a little higher then some, I have always enjoyed the food, servers and atmosphere. However on this last visit the server was a little flat, just going thru the motions, not very personable which is the opposite from past experience. Hoping it was an off day for her.

The wings were excellent and so was the beef on weck. The appetizers came out quickly. They were doing covid precautions which was great. Will go again.

During this COVID time they are taking all the precautionary measures needed. Making reservations was amazing at a place that always had a wait. I hope they keep the reservations after COVID is over. The food was just as good as the East Aurora location and the service is always good.

Plenty of room to safely enjoy dinner at the table with family or friends. Staff was prompt. Food was serving was timely and Very Delicious. The mini-beef on wick dinner is the most tender of anywhere, every bite smooth and does not get between your teeth. We ordered the wings as crispy and the chef cooked them spot on. The medium is on the hot side as the menu states. Mild is more to our liking, similar to Frank's Red Hot Sauce or Texas Pete heat. The breaded shrimp was absolutely the best we've EVER had. Cooked to perfection! Awesome job by the chef, host, waitress, etc. Cannot wait to go back. Love the atmosphere of the Bar-Bill North! Absolutely, highly recommend!

This was the second time we made a reservation and requested outdoor dining, and both times our request was not honored. The waitress forgot my husbands beverage and spent most of the time talking to a table of men.

Our server Andrea was courteous, friendly, and exceptional. Will ask for her next time. The wings came out exactly the way we ordered them, saucy and just a touch crispy. Best we have had anywhere in quite awhile. The roast beef was delicious. We had 8 people, when the food arrived we had 4 waitresses making sure everything was served correctly. We have been to the location in East Aurora, but our first time in Clarence location. Will be back soon.

Our very first time. Hostess at 4:15 was rude. Im handicapped and gave me a very hard time getting a booth in a wide open restaurant. We almost left.
Our server kept us there. She was amazing! Actually one of the best we have come across! Food was delicious.

Its bar food but quality...fried foods are crisp and hot, wings are meaty and tasty, service is pleasant. Old building that was originally a mill was nicely rehabilitated. Seating requests are ignored but not a huge problem, parking is scarce even though they have a dedicated parking lot so carpool!

Food was a disappointment my sandwich was soggy and looked thrown together. No healthy options everything fried, wings are average.
Expected better considering the hype.

With hardly no customers in the place we were rushed through our cocktails and our food. We hoped to enjoy our drinks and then order another drink to have with our food. We were told we had 1hr and 1/2 to dine. They rushed us out after 45 minutes. Our reservation was for 4PM. When we left there were hardly anyone in the place. They missed out on the purchase of another drink.

Bar-Bill is reservation only, we walked up without one so we quickly got on Open Table and made one. The hostess was willing to make a reservation for anyone who didn't have a smart phone and walked in without one. The restaurant itself was very unique, it's an old building and they did a great job restoring/updating. I ordered a single order of flats-only mild wings. I was between mild and medium, I usually get medium when I'm out but I wasn't sure if their spiciness level was so I asked the waitress. She recommended getting mild, and they basically had no flavor at all and tasted plain. I asked for a side of medium, and dipping them wasn't the same. They weren't as crispy as I would have expected for a Buffalo wing restaurant, overall they were okay but I'd choose Duffs over Bar Bill in the future. The beer battered fries were delicious though, and they did have a decent draft beer selection!

I love my wings crispy and not soggy. Bar bill never disappoints! Their method of brushing the sauce onto the wings surely takes more effort, but the difference is very evident!

Our server Sarah was great. Spot on with the timeliness of the service and her friendly demeanor made us feel like she had been our friend for years!

Chicken fingers dry and tasteless. Asked for extra plate, was told to use teeny tiny paper plate already on table (I specifically asked for something bigger). No kids menu, no booster seats. Asked for a booth (my daughter had just hurt her back and would have been more comfortable). Was told no. For the money, not impressed.

It may be "bar food" but it's elevated from most places of it's type. The wings are meaty and cooked properly and NOT swimming in sauce like so many others. Three choices of fries, all are excellent and the fried shrimp were huge and accompanied by fries and a really tasty chili sauce dip...I WILL BE BACK TO TRY MORE OF THE MENU!

Reservations are a good idea given social distance requirements. Noise level was acceptable given that the patio is adjacent to Main St.

By far The best chicken wings I have ever had. Can’t say enough about how great Bar Bill is. Cajun bbq honey butter wings are to die for. Aka “Josh Allen wings” if you looking for real buffalo wings? This is a must stop.

Simple the best place to go when one is looking for authentic Buffalo food. They're very well known for Beef on wick and chicken wings. Well worth it.
