Up scale dining in Lincoln, NE

Billy's is upscale dining in an historic house that has been converted into an intimate dining experience. Several rooms offer a quieter environment for dining. Several wonderful entree choices, staff are very friendly and do a great job.

We had a fantastic time at Billy's for our year end party. The staff was professional and hilarious. The food is some of the best I've had in Lincoln. 5/5 will be back soon!

This restaurant is sort of a throwback classic. We went on a slow Tuesday night because it was my birthday. We were surprised to be greeted, seated by and even sang to by the Chef. Food was very good. Even though we were full, they talked us into trying dessert so we split the lemon cheesecake and it was to... More

fantastic food & atmosphere - the salmon is perfect every time & the steak is cooked to perfection. The crab cakes are some of the best that I've eaten. The staff is very friendly & we were seated in a private room for a birthday celebration. Would highly recommend Billy's!

As a couple, and with several friends, we have been to Billy's several times. Food and service have always been excellent. Upscale atmosphere and food presentation. Several years ago, the owner and staff catered our daughter's wedding in Lincoln, NE. At that time, she was vegetarian, and the staff did an excellent job in providing great dishes in the vegetarian... More

This is an excellent place for business, romance or just supper with the family. Is more on the upper end and I haven't tried it with kids, but the food is out of this world and the staff has always been great!

Based on other reviews we were prepared to like this restaurant. Things started well; our waiter, the owner's son, was a very pleasant, friendly young man. Our appetizer, identified as baked Brie, was barely warm, but we were hungry after a day on the road and were willing to give it a pass. The soup, a cream of artichoke, was... More

My husband and I went there for a date nigh, we had heard such great things! We will not return! The food was okay! The service was extremely slow. I am all for having a long dinner and a great conversation but you cannot let your table run out of drinks. I had fish and it was cooked well but... More

Our son is attending UNL and we flew in for my 60th birthday to spend a couple days with him and to celebrate my 60th birthday. My husband had made the reservation thinking the place sounded intriguing and would be an unusual place to have dinner. When we arrived they showed us to one of two tables in the brightly... More

Great atmosphere, quiet and not crowded. Food was good and server was very attentive. Prices are moderate ($$) or so. Plenty of parking.
