A word from Billy's Restaurant
Named after William Jennings Bryan, the elegant "Noble-Dawes House" located near the Nebraska State Capital was built in 1887. The Chautauqua Bar and the dining rooms named for William Jennings Bryan, Charles Dawes, and George W. Norris give a fascinating glimpse into a grand era in U. S. History.<br> Since 1986 it has been the home of Billy's Restaurant. We find the finest ingredients for our divers menu selections. Our entree specialties include steak, lamb, duck, veal, seafood and delicious vegetarian dishes. Whether it be our premium steaks, the freshest produce, homemade soups, or incomparable seafood - you will take home a memory of fine food, fine wine, and excellent service whenever you visit Billy's Restaurant.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Overall a good evening, but our server was a bit slow, and it took a very long time to get our food."

  • "My daughter and I had a girls night out and we will come again to Billy's! The food, service and atmosphere were perfect. When there is perfection I can't add more!"

  • "My boyfriend and I went to Billy's for the first time for his birthday dinner the other night. We arrived around 7:30, and the tables were mostly full. The atmosphere is very intimate and romantic due to the numerous, small dining "rooms". There were approximately 3-6 tables per room, and the lighting was low. Their menu is on the smaller side, so I recommend looking at what they offer online before going in. However, the choices covered many areas of cuisine. The food was absolutely wonderful, and it was obvious that the most quality ingredients were used. We will definitely be returning."

  • "We had tremendous eats and really great company...what more could we ask for? Chef Nader came out to speak with us and made some suggestions for us. We all had something different and each one seemed to be as good as the next. Quick service, great ambiance and really great food!! Highly recommend Billy's!!"

  • "Great food but limited menu. Good service but not a very beautiful spot. Interesting political antiques on walls. Good meat! Menu needs more choices for salads and sides."

  • "When we arrived, we noticed the exterior of the building had peeling paint, a bit of rustic charm perhaps. From the exterior and modest interior, we were unsure of what to expect. We were greeted promptly and seated. Our charming server, (and Wine Steward), described the house specials for the evening. I ordered the "Chicken for Jordan" and my guest ordered "Filet Mignon". We were treated to a generous portion of salad with an amazing vinagrette dressing. Our dinners arrived within a reasonable time. I must say, I truly and thoroughly enjoyed the Chicken for Jordan. Lightly breaded with a delicious sauce, it was heavenly. The Filet was just okay according to my guest. The portions were nice size and very tasty. I would eat at Billy's again."

  • "My wife and I went for an anniversary dinner. Old building was charming. Food was ok, but certainly not the quality to merit $30 a plate. I had the steak diane, which was fine but not anything special. The building was showing its age and pretty shabby in spots. Table linens needed updating. We will not be back."

  • "Food was ok but too pricey. HM butternut squash soup was sugary and overwhelmed by the wrong spices 30$ entrees implies best-in-town but it is not. Our waiter was incapable of responding to simple instructions and we had to ask for everything several times"

  • "We were visiting Lincoln for a football game. The service was outstanding. Best rack of lamb my husband has ever had. I had seared tuna great. Martinis were carefully made, good wine list and desert great will go back."

  • "This reminded me of the Knolls. Back in the day it was the place to go, but with all of the wonderful new places in the Haymarket these guys need to step it up a notch (or ten) to stay relevant. The minute we ordered soda instead of wine our waitress became scarce, I assume she thinks only people that drink wine tip well??? My husband ordered the special which we assumed was a special price. Not so, $30. It was good but not THAT good. I ordered the pasta and could have gotten better at macaroni grill. Seriously. Never ever again."

  • "My husband and I ate at Billy's to celebrate his 62nd birthday six weeks late. We had one family emergency after another this summer so lead to this late celebration. The food was wonderful, the staff was attentive but not annoying. When we have something we want to celebrate we head to Billy's."
