“Great Experience and Atmosphere!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

Our first visit to this establishment was nothing short of great. What made it especially fantastic was the service provided by "Ashley S". She provided an unparalleled level of customer service, for that we'll certainly re-visit this establishment. (food and drink was also good and very reasonably priced!)

“Average but Consistent”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014

We've stopped in here a few times. It's OK and consistent. Large selection of menu items and the kids like it. It has a train that runs around an elevated track. Their ribs are good but too sweet for my taste. Burgers are fine. Never have had anything bad but nothing outstanding either.

“Great Food and Extra helpful staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

This is my second time at this restaurant. I didn't post. Review of my first time because sometimes food and service changes! But this was not the case for this restaurant. The food was delicious. This is not a fancy place, just a good solid restaurant where people can bring their family and expect good food for a good price. If it isn't good they take it back with no questions and an apology to make it right! This staff was super busy and lots of kids and yet they were all cheerful and helpful! I would go back again!

“Highly overrated”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

This place is so overrated, it's not funny. The food is sloppy, mushy and not tasty. I guess it's still open for the crowd who likes a bar scene type of restaurant, kind if pub style with a country western feel. Not for me.

“Great steakhouse in Bellingham!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

Went to Billy McHale's with some co-workers and we were hungry. We all ordered the Ribeye Steak and were pleasantly surprised. The quality and amount of food was beyond our expectation. The atmosphere in the lounge area was bright and friendly with big screens showing Monday Night football. Although almost every seat was filled, we did not feel crowded in any way. Service was great and we never had an empty glass. I'll be back to Billy McHale's on another trip to Bellingham.
