    Waiter kept asking for our order over and over even tho we told him we needed more time. When we gave him appetizers and entrees, everything still all came out at once. The restaurant wasn't busy so no idea why we were rushed.

    This was not our first time here. We usually go to Bill’s every time we are in NYC which varies but this is one of our favorites. It doesn’t hurt that it is right by the stores and the activities at Rockefeller that we love. 😉

    Decent burgers and sandwiches at reasonable prices, but though I had reserved a standard table, they only had hi-top tables available when I got there. I think the waitstaff was overwhelmed and not expecting the crowd it got at the time I went. Our server was very nice and apologetic, but it took her a long time to take our order, and I got tired of waiting for her to pick up my credit card, so I just left cash at the table before I left. Also, they were out of two of the bottled beers/ ciders on the menu that I was interested in. Definitely a “family” crowd, with lots of young kids. If you’re cool with that, it’s ok.

    It was okay, our server was inattentive and our burgers were dry. My husband ordered an old fashioned and they sent him a shot instead of a drink and it was $15. I likely wouldn’t go back.

    I had read a few reviews saying the food took forever, but we went anyway. In a nutshell, I think our server forgot to place our order but tried to blame it on the order getting lost. Rather than getting a manager and rushing out order (which was just two burgers) he returned to the table to tell me he “rerang our order in.” We should have left, but he never returned for me to get the bill for our drinks. The burgers then came out in about 15 min and tasted like someone spilled salt in the meet. We could not eat them. The manager never came to our table and nothing was comped. We had waited SO long (over and hour) we just got frustrated and left. It was a cute place with several beer choices, but that is where it ended, the rest of our experience was terrible.

    I usually go to the location downtown inside the Marriott Hotel but my friend was visiting me so I wanted to do a midtown location. BIG MISTAKE . This was a terrible experience . My waiter ( can’t tell you his name cause he didn’t tell me) brought me a disgusting take of a margarita which turned me off immediately . He claimed the trainee made it but the redo drink also was horrible. He didn’t check on us enough at all —- the owner (white dude slick back hair) was walking around like he was some big shot but had no care for the customers who were keeping his terrible business running . Burgers were subpar - cheese fries were CRIMINAL . 6 wings for $15 Should be illegal . Nonetheless I’ll never recommend this place again or dine here . I hope this establishment changes or it’ll fail in the long run . This should not represent the nyc dining experience !!!!!! & yes I still tipped 20% !

    We were at Bill's Sunday evening, the restaurant was very busy. By the time our food was served the restaurant had slowed down quite a bit. The food was ok, nothing special. The service wasn't the best. After the food was served we didn't see our waitress until we asked for the check.

    Made a 6:45pm reservation and we were seated right away. Used the ladies room on the main level and it was disgusting. We had 5 people in our party but were only given 4 waters and 2 table settings. After many attempts to ask for one extra water and 3 more table settings - I gave up and took 3 table settings from another table and shared my water with my husband. Our waiter told us they only had 3 basic shakes available on the menu: chocolate, vanilla and strawberry as they are having vendor issues with their custom shakes. However, 5 mins after we ordered a boring disappointing chocolate shake the table next to us got a large cookies and cream custom shake! I asked the waiter about the shake at the next table and he back pedaled on his original statement blaming his daytime manager for telling him something different. Our food came out very quickly but waiter forgot our sweet potato fries. Tried to get his attention a few times, but gave up and I went to the hostess to let her know we are missing an item we ordered. Food overall was good but the restaurant was not clean and the waiter had no clue about the items on the menu and lied to us about no custom shakes being available probably because he did not want to deal with the shakes. We went here for the custom shakes and it did not work out at all. We left disappointed and we wont’t go back.
