My daughter took me there for my birthday. I had never been there because it looked to expensive. When we got there. I was delighted. The interior was beautiful and the food was amazing. The waitress left a little bit to be desired, but I don't think she was a regular waitress. It was just after the regular lunch trade... More

We visited Billy's twice last week, once to try a Friday $5.99 lunch, the other for an elaborate dinner. With such an assortment of dishes, we found that everything from Nader's Lemon Chicken sandwiches to Steak Diane was scrumptious. Billy's is great for special occasions, but why hold back? We're going to enjoy Billy's more frequently.

We went to Billy's for a fine dining experience. The food was exquisite and drinks were amazing. We had a wonderful server who was attentive to our table. It is a quaint place to eat.

Very nice restaurant - enjoyed lunch here very much. Great lunch time specials, and GREAT food. Loved the Rueben Sandwich. The creamy Raspberry Balsamic dressing for the salad was amazing! Wish they had it in bottles to take home. Others in the party got the Ham and Cheese and the Chicken Salad Croisant. All was excellent! Deserts looked wonderful -... More

Enjoyed a special Mother's Day dinner with family after a graduation ceremony. Food was very tasty and the service was prompt. The owner came out to greet us and later brought out a special plate of chicken not on the menu. Even the waiter was surprised. Good food, good service and personal contact equal great meal. Will come back next... More

I brought my husband here for his birthday. The food was absolutely fabulous. I had the crab cakes and my husband had the salmon. I also had a strawberry lemonade which was fresh and delicious. The service was great too.

My husband and I were in town for a conference and decided to have a nice dinner out together on a Saturday night. We made reservations not knowing if it would be crowded or busy. It was not and the reservations were not necessary. After reading some reviews we thought this might be more of an "upscale" restaurant. While the... More

If you are looking for a taste of homemade at a higher end restaurant, prepared with a passion and a splash of one-of-a-kind character thrown in, then you must give Billy's a try. Nader's food continues to amaze with creativity, quality, and variety, including surprises like crab cakes and homemade yogurt on an event breakfast buffet. He enhances good cooking... More
