When we arrived, the 1st thing the hostess said to us was "we only have high top tables available. My mom can't sit at these types of tables, I said to the hostess I have a reservation. Immediately she made sure we hot a regular table. Our reservation meant something on this very busy day!! Great experience, we will be back!

It has become a tradition to take the grandchildren to see the tree and then get a burger at Bill’s. It is still good, but the menu has become more limited. Our server was friendly and attentive. Noise level was very high(lots of kids). We were early for our reservation, but they accommodated us and seemed happy to do so.

We had great food at a wonderful table downstairs. The best part was Delfin our server! He was our server in September as well. He remembered us, where we were from, what we ordered & gave us the same 5 star service again. We will return to see Delfin each visit to NYC. He is a treasure! Thanks for making our dinner phenomenal!

This is the second time in two years (2019 and 2021) we have eaten at Bill's Bar and Burger while visiting NYC at Christmas time. This is a particularly great place to eat if you are visiting Rockefeller Center for Christmas as it is located inside the Center right by the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree. I have eaten burgers at Bareburger, Shake Shake, the Burger Joint, and other places while in the City, and Bill's is as good or better than any of them. Their shakes and fries are great too. I would highly recommend reservations through Open Table though and make it as early as possible if you expect to be seated right away. The wait line was very long but we were seated within 5 minutes with our Open Table reservation.

Burgers , not so great
Had a better burger the next day at the airport

Also I requested a booth , they sat us at a booth . And then they moved us to a table for some reason . And no one ever was seated at the booth .
So that's annoying since I requested it in advance .

From my 8 year old: “I give this a 10 million out of ten.”

We loved the pretzel bites we ordered for appetizer, and the burgers are very good! The sweet potato waffle fries got a thumbs up from all the kids, and I recommend the fat cat burger, for sure.

Would definitely eat there again. Good place to go when seeing attractions at Rockefeller Plaza.

Had lunch at Bill's. This place is truly a must-eat place when you are in the Rockefeller Plaza area. Menu is mostly hamburgers and each is a specialty of Bill's. The burgers were way better than the french fries or the onion rings. Great selection of beers, 1ncluding Bill's own lable. The bloody marys were superb and well alcoholed as we like them. Don't miss this place.

Lunch. Burgers were great on home made buns. Choc shakes were good and large sized! Prices were reasonable. We are here twice in one week.

In November of 2021, I brought and treated my wife and myself for dinner at the Bill’s Bar & Burger restaurant.

We very much enjoyed our experience at this restaurant. We were warmly welcomed and treated very well by the restaurant’s staff and were provided with good seats to dine.

Our meals were timely served and superbly delicious!!!

We definitely recommend that everyone visit and dine at this wonderful restaurant!!!

Love their burgers. My friend and I like to go there and get the mini cheeseburgers, cheese fries and a third appetizer to share. It is the perfect amount for the two of us.

Perfect place to eat with my teenage son before an SNL taping. Our seat was immediately behind the host stand so it was a bit noisy but it was a fun, lively atmosphere overall.

I’d happily keep this place in mind when I’m back in the city with the rest of the family.

Quick service, very reasonably priced and burgers were absolutely delicious.

I made reservations for 4 after spending the morning at MoMA with my best friend and my goddaughters. We decided on Bill’s cause it was the closest restaurant to the museum that was kid-friendly. We were glad to discover that there’s a kids’ menu. It is not featured online, so that was a pleasant surprise. Food was excellent, especially the shakes. Unfortunately, we were told that specialty shakes were not available. So we all got chocolate instead. Kids were very happy with their pretzel bites and chicken fingers. The burgers that the adults ordered were amazing. My only criticism is that the server was not particularly attentive, which didn’t make sense as it wasn’t that busy.

We went to bills specifically for shakes, however they were not doing any of the specialty shakes. Our menu is literally handshakes and they were doing them. It would’ve been very nice to know when advance that shakes are no longer being made.

Very well managed, clean, able to offer gluten free for our needs. A little bit slow service, but the food was good and we understand that there was not a lot of people working at that time.

2 of the 4 meals weren't exactly as ordered - But nothing serious was amiss. Disappointed that their specialty shakes aren't back on the menu yet. Staff is excellent!
