About Backwater Bill's Grill

Come on in and make yourself at home. Check your worries at the door. There’s no pretense at the friendliest, most relaxed eating and drinking place at the lake. Wear your most comfortable jeans and bring all your friends. Bring the kids and grand kids, too.

Everyone is welcome at Backwater Bill’s. With its down-home Lowcountry menu (think corn and crab fritters, smoked brisket, chopped salad, just to mention a small sample of the delicious fare), inviting fishing lodge decor, and views of the lake everywhere you turn, this is the place to be for lunch or dinner. Or grab a seat at the bar, inside or out, and get caught up with your neighbors or spin a tale or two about the largemouth Tiger Bass you were “this close” to catching on the lake. Whether you grab a table in the dining room under Bill’s old canoe or enjoy a nightcap next to the Lakehouse’s grand stone fireplace, you’ll always feel right a home.
