“Overpriced Sports Bar”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2013 via mobile

Billy's Sports Bar is your typical sports bar except it's overpriced and the food is terrible. I enjoyed the number of flat screens except they were all tuned into the same channel. When I asked the bartender to change one TV to the Jays game, she said she'd try. I waited 15 minutes and nothing. We were a group of 9 and there were only 8 other people in the entire restaurant! I'm sorry but I came to watch the game and you don't dictate what should be on the TV (it was LPGA golf btw). Not one person I was with enjoyed their meal and everyone felt ripped off. I will never eat here again. Stay away!

Food is good, drinks are cold what more could you ask for. I have been here 2 or three times and each time the food was good.

“Valentines Day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

Went to Billy's for Valentines Day and the meal was delicious - as usual. I ordered the beef tenderloin with jack daniels maple sauce and it was the best steak I have had (I have eaten at the best restaurants in North America). Overall food is fantastic, the staff are very friendly and professional.

“Somehow one of the must expensive places to eat”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

I have moved to kirkland lake from down south and ate there a few times for the atmosphere. It didnt look like a northern ontario run down place. After trying the other places in town it was quick to realize how out of control the prices are for many of the items. A pitcher of beer is 6$ more then anywhere else in town.

We ate there for a retirement party and i got a 23$ half chicken plate. Chicken was overcooked and served with a terrible baked potatoe and a few veggies.

Many other places to eat in town then here. Best part is Subway is rated higher then here and KFC is just below.

“Tasty road house fare”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2012

Standard roadhouse fare. Food was tasty. Had the panzerotto which was tasty. Salad was great. Someone else had the chicken wrap which was delicious. Everyone seemed fairly happy with their meals. Very friendly servers. I heard it's one of the better restaurants/pubs in town from some locals.
