I dont live in Federal way but enjoyed the old Billy McHale location, so when it moved we sought it out. Unfortunately it has lost its charm in the move although our servers were excellent. I say servers because we had 3 over the course of the 2 hours of eating and drinking. The first and second server were sent... More

Just visited the local Federal Way Billy McKale's and I wasn't too impressed. While the service was excellent, the food was just okay and a little overpriced. Their cobb salad looked quite good, but was bland and flavorless. Their prawn/bacon dinner didn't include salad and the beans were hard, the prawns very salty and dry. I think they were trying...

I frequented Billy McHale's weekly when they were in Factoria, but the Federal Way location became much closer eight years ago when I moved. Needless to say, the Federal Way restaurant will soon experience the fate of the Factoria location. Closed.

If you're looking for an interesting place to eat, Billy McHale's might fit the bill. A variety of decorations including an electric train that runs next to tables. The food is decent but nothing to write home about. Unfortunately it can tend to get loud during busy times and there isn't much privacy. Also has a bar area.

I'm usually just here for happy hour, but I love their drink & food specials. The wings and nachos are pretty good and their daily HH special on drinks is one of the best in the city.

Should have know it would be a bad dinner when there were not to many cars around the restaurant in this busy neighborhood. My daughter got the special, prime rib. It was awful. The color was grey, cold and fatty. The potatoes were hardly warm and the beans cold. I ordered a chicken sandwich which I thought was ok but... More

$10.25 for the most pathetic serving of potato skins I have ever seen. I am not a big eater but if I am paying $10.25 for an appetizer I expect to get my money's worth. The food is very marginal. Like a lame chain restaurant, but dingy and dated décor. The windows were filthy which made me cringe to think... More
