We pass this restaurant every time we head to Palm Springs and finally decided to check it out. For starters we had no idea it was as big as it was. The menu was equally as big and very reasonably priced. If you are looking for American fare, not fusion or gourmet then this is a good stop. They offer a nice traditional menu of steaks, prime rib and other non-meat main dishes and appetizers. The bar was doing a booming business. Our biggest surprise was when one of the floor managers brought around the evenings dessert special, a peach cake at least 12 inches tall with fresh glazed peaches on top (think Claim Jumpers Mother Lode chocolate cake). It looked amazing (all desserts are fresh made on site according to our server) but we were stuffed from our prime rib and couldn't take another bite. If I wasn't I would have gotten a slice in a heartbeat! We will definitely visit next time we are in town.

Recently when we are in Palm Springs we decide to try out the prime rib at Billy Reeds restaurant on the Boulevard. As many times as we have been in Palm Springs we always pass by the sign for Billy Reeds but until now have never had occasion to go in so we were very pleasantly surprised when we went and found a very nice warm atmosphere of Billy Reeds.

The menu is very expensive like a really high-class coffee shop includes everything from busy with friend reasonable prices on practically all the items. The prime rib was okay nothing fantastic but then what do you expect for $16. The dessert menu takes up an entire page and is completely filled with homemade cakes of every variety. In fact at one point they were walking around showing everyone the giant peach cake which looked about 12 inches high which means each slice would've been gargantuan.

This place seems really cool so I'm really anxious to try other food items including their desserts. And by the way the service was excellent. I can best really recommend reads

Billy Reed's has an extensive menu, but there's nothing really outstanding (sorry). The reason to come here are Billy Reed's (chef-owner) deserts. They are old fashioned style and generous portions. Especially try the peach pie if in season. Kids seem to love the place all around.

The restaurant is large and cool in summertime.

Servers & staff are welcoming and efficient.

Great place, great food, great service. I had liver and onions which were just the way they're supposed to be fixed. Just the portion was far too large. It was so good that I took home the leftover for another BIG meal.
