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

I haven't been to Billy's for years, but we were meeting with someone special and wanted to take him out to dinner. Since he was finishing up a meeting at the Capital, we chose Billy's. There were a few customers there, so it was quiet. I ordered the broccoli soup which had way too much black pepper in it and... More

We had a fantastic time at Billy's for our year end party. The staff was professional and hilarious. The food is some of the best I've had in Lincoln. 5/5 will be back soon!

This restaurant is sort of a throwback classic. We went on a slow Tuesday night because it was my birthday. We were surprised to be greeted, seated by and even sang to by the Chef. Food was very good. Even though we were full, they talked us into trying dessert so we split the lemon cheesecake and it was to... More
