Great food. Good service. Billy, your host, will greet you at the door, and is always present. Nearby tables makes private conversations problematic.

Love Billy’s Restaurant – a "must-stop" for dinner every time we stay in the Old Forge/Inlet area! Billy's is not a traditional Italian Restaurant serving old country specialties; you will get good old Utica, NY style Italian-American dishes with some new twists. The staff is attentive ensuring you are well cared for. Billy is a great host and makes sure... More

We visit this area 3-4 times a year. Every year. For the past 15 years. We just happened to try this for the first time and loved it. It has definitely been added to our rotation. The experience started when we called for our reservation (highly suggested) and Billy answers the phone. Billy seated us. Billy bussed tables. Billy preps... More

Wonderful Italian food. My husband and I shared an entrée--Sausage Cacciatore Yumm. Nice wine and good beer. A small, intimate restaurant in the center of Old Forge, NY.

Billy's opens at 4 p.m., and we just happened to be there then. We got seated immediately, and were amazed at how quickly the place filled up, so reservations are most definitely recommended. Our server was sweet, friendly, and quick to anticipate our needs. The fresh, hot bread and salad was delicious. We split a calamari appetizer and knew dinner... More

Had dinner at Billy's our first night in Old Forge. Called ahead for reservations and would suggest you do the same as it is a fairly small and popular restaurant. Billy greeted us and showed us to the table. He also went over the specials of the evening as well as the better known items on the menu. We started... More

This is one of our favorite restaurants to eat at in Old Forge. Billy is an excellent host and the food is always great. This is a small restaurant and fills up quickly so reservations are highly recommended.
