A word from Billy's
Bill Dessel had a vision of what was needed in the East Bay area: the ultimate American bistro/tavern. With the support of family and friends, Billy’s opened its doors in April, 2009. Billy’s is committed to providing its guests the highest quality at affordable prices. Nothing on the menu is over $20! Billy’s uses superior meats and seafood, provided by Kinnealey Meats and Foley Fish, and the freshest local produce. Whether you are enjoying the famous Billy Burger, sautéed calamari or mouth-watering pasta, you can taste the difference. We also provide our guests with an extensive, eclectic mix of beers and wines, carefully selected for novice and connoisseur alike.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Our second visit was even better than the first. We traveled about 40 minutes to meet another couple halfway - both times. The second visit was at our suggestion to a different couple who frequent nice restaurants. They were impressed at the menu selection as well as ambiance and service. The food was even more impressive. The Keel vodka shrimp was delicious as was the swordfish special, eggplant parm and hamburger marsala on Portuguese muffin. Only complaint would be a rather chewy calamari appetizer."

  • "Dinner was perfect. The waiter, Alex did a great job taking care of us. Made nice recommendations and made sure we always had a drink if we needed it. I have been a few times before and will definitely be going many more times."

  • "We had a nice Valentine's Day dinner at Billy's with another couple. The food was delicious. I had the veal stroganoff and it was even better than I anticipated. The veal was tender and the sauce was impeccable. My co-diners had Seafood Fra Diavlo, Chicken Parmesan and Lobster Macaroni and cheese and all were happy with their selections. Our waitress and the bus staff were very attentive and friendly; our water glasses were filled throughout the meal and dishes were cleared as we finished each course. My only complaint would be that the noise level in the restaurant made it difficult to hear at our table. I would recommend Billy's to anyone looking for a good meal with sizeable portions."

  • "Billys was very good with a few bumps. The food was delicious. I highly recommend the friend calamari as an appetizer! The service was very slow. Sometimes it was nice because you didn't feel rushed at all but other times I was ready to order. We also had to ask for bread and for sauce for the calamari. We also we're sat in the corner and I was frozen because the door kept swaying open when people were entering and leaving. Overall the food was great and the people were nice but they didn't follow through all the way."

  • "We have eaten at Billy's several times before and it always delivers good quality food and drinks. It's great to have the menu option of a sandwich or a full entree, depending on your mood or appetite. I usually order one of the martini specials and they're always delicious! We'll definitely be back."

  • "I was referred to Billy's from a good friend that went there for burgers and chowder. Probably what I should have ordered this night. Unfortunately we did not and my expectations were not what met We went with a party of four. Two of us had the baked seafood. A shore dinner dish with sole shrimp and scallops. Portion was not that great. All of the fish in the dish was tasteless. Almost watery. The other fish dish was the cod and that was the same. No taste. The other two dishes were fair. Now for the good. The salad was very good. Fresh and chilled nicely. The veggies, green beans and spinach were very very good. Cooked and spiced just right. I will go back to Billy's again. But for the chowder and hamburgers."

  • "Billy's, like any restaurant, has down nights. Our recent visit was one such. However: even on a down night Billy's is significantly better than most. It was very busy, backed up, & the kitchen wasn't up to their usual level of excellence ... so my ratings are just "very good." Not excellent. Any 12 previous ratings would have been excellent across the board. Note that this is about the worst evening I've ever had in a restaurant I visit about twice a month for at least the last two years. It's not a foodie restaurant -- the menu is fairly constant, relying on dishes that feed the soul & body rather than the ego & today's mercurial trends. Good for them, says I. And I'll be back next week, anticipating the excellence I'm used to."

  • "Billy's menu has a nice range of options (from great sandwiches to excellent entrees). It is great for kids but adults still get an excellent meal and a nice drink list. The fries (especially the sweet potato fries) are excellent."

  • "This was my second visit to Billy's--giving it another try after a not-so-good first experience (very slow service and so-so food). I was equally disappointed second time around. Clam chowder was good but we waited for awhile for our burgers. When they finally arrived, my order of a Marsala mushroom burger was missing the mushrooms and the burger (ordered medium) was dry and tasteless. Service was slow again and aside from the water boy, not very attentive."

  • "Five of us had dinner on a Saturday evening before going to 2nd Story Theatre and each of us thought the food was very good and we had an all-in-all pleasant experience at BIlly's."

  • "Simply put the menu prices are ridiculous. The pasta dishes looked more like soup than a bed of pasta, and the flavor was bland. I waw hoping for a pittle gem but found a little bit of pretentiousness in Barrington. Surprise Surprise"
