We went here for the Friday Fish Fry and it was super good! They have excellent service and keep the fish coming the best they can with as busy as they are! They offer both broiled and deepfried fish with your chips or fries. The coleslaw is also very good. I was very happy and will return again soon.

It's bar food. Burgers, sandwiches, fries. You get the idea. But it's great bar food. There's a decent variety on the menu and a nice selection of beer on tap. The atmosphere is fun and friendly, the decor is simple and warm, if perhaps a little dated. There's karaoke on the weekends if you're in the mood to sing or... More

Built in the lobby of the historic Jackson Street Hotel, this place serves good food, nothing spectacular. In the summer, the patio is busy.

We used to come here all the time. But....the interior hasn't been updated in 15-20 years and the menu hasn't either! Food is mediocre at best, it stinks inside, and the waitstaff is not terribly attentive. Could be a gem, but they really need to give this place a facelift!

When ordering take out burgers the only name my kids say is Billy's. The food is always good, the service and staff are great in the restaurant. The Sunday brunch is awesome, especially for the price. The bar staff is less than acceptable, 4 out of 5 visits the bartenders have had bad attitudes. It is the bar service why... More

Food is good, and always what you expect. Service is reliable but not exceptional and has a great local bar. We have been here for special occasions, family gatherings and just cocktails. We are never disappointed and continue to visit at least a couple times per month.

Been here several times, always good but nothing great. Good to average wait service and just your average happy hour specials. Primerib was very good and their chicken wild rice soup was great.

We go to Billy's at least twice a month and have NEVER experienced bad food or service. It is a great place to have consistent good food and service and decent prices. The boneless wings and onion rings are very good as are the cheese curds. Happy hour has excellent food and drinks at good prices. They have a variety... More
