Date night dinner at this historic house was perfect. There are several rooms available with a handful of tables in each leading to a quiet intimate environment. Staff is friendly and attentive. The menu offers variety, we had the stuffed havarti mushrooms as an appetizer, the Steak Diane, and wonderful chocolate cake for desert. All delicious. Wine is served in... More

Billy's is a local favorite for special occasions or whenever you want that extra-service experience. Also popular for after-work drinks, Billy's food is simply fantastic. The steaks are excellent, and the service is first rate. Located in a large, converted home on the very southern edge of downtown, Billy's never disapoints.

Received a gift certificate to Billy's so decided to have dinner there. We had two absolutely wonderful entrees of Sunset Shrimp and Steak Diana. Topped it off with a delicious chocolate cake! Put that together with a unique atmosphere and it was a fantastic time. I know we will be returning for another scrumptious meal!

We had gone to Billy's as a group and we enjoyed the food very much. The shrimps were wonderful, very tender and nicely cooked and the best was their choice of dessert. I really liked the marble cake. The server was nice and made us comfortable, though we were a big group, the servers were taking care of everyone.

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.

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
