Our lunch here was very good. We had delicious sandwiches, cocktails & dessert. The owner (and chef) also came to our table to chat with us. What a lovely setting and would recommend it to anyone. Thank you for a fabulous visit.

This past week we had an anniversary celebration for 8 people at Billy's. The restaurant was not overly crowded and the atmosphere was very pleasant. However, 4 of 8 of the entrees had to be returned to the kitchen for under-cooked chicken. It took almost...More

I had been to Billy's before on two occasions for faculty functions, but this was my first time sitting down to dinner. I purchased a Groupon which gave two people $30 (I paid $18). I probably should have consulted the menu first because when we...More

i am not sure of the dress code, but I saw people in jeans as well. We had gone for lunch and were a group of 15 - quite comfortably seated and served. Best would be to ask the reservations about seating for 30 people.
