Special evening, good wine-Naders featured, good food and good service. Restaurant was not full so it was quiet as well. Table was ready when we arrived.

Excellent in every way!
First time I've been to Billy's and I agree with all of the reviews - fabulous meal and great service. I look forward to dining at Billy's again the next time I'm in Lincoln.

My place to go w/o the kids
I love going out for dinner to a restaurant that is not a chain and offers menu with interesting items to choose from. No kids here. Great date place with your husbands. Leave the kids at home! Great wine selection. Reasonably priced on all accounts. Our risotto wasn't cooked all the way, but that I think is a fluke and I can easily overlook it especially since they brought out a side of their delicious mashed potatoes garlicky with skins. yum.

One of my favorites!
One of the finest restaurants in Lincoln for atmosphere and excellence in food and service. On this visit, I was met by the door by the chef, who entertained me while I waited for my dining companions by describing in detail some of the available dishes, so that I was fully primed by the time we took our seats. I had the Chicken for Jordan, which is a must-order for chicken and cheese lovers. It can be a bit pricey at dinnertime, so we only go for special occasions, but at lunchtime the prices are very reasonable, especially on "$5 Fridays".

My wife and I had never been to Billy's before. Our 28th Anniversary dinner and atmosphere was terrific, I'd highly recommend this restaurant for anyone who wants a warm romantic environment coupled with great food and wine.

The food was wonderful. I had the Pepper Sea Scallops and they were cooked perfectly. My husband had the pork shank. It melted in your mouth. Defenitely will be back to try another dish. The wine was very good and the service was the best.

Billy's - A Lincoln Gem
An excellent dining experience for couples or smaller groups, Billy's offers a smaller menu of excellent appetizers, entrees, and desserts. The wine list is likewise limited, but focuses on quality selections, both domestic and imported. Full bar service is also available. Service was attentive, friendly, and efficient, with care taken to pace the meal comfortably.

Great spot for good eating
We happened to be at Billy's on a quiet night with few customers. Sometimes they are very busy. But we had a great experience celebrating our 45th wedding anniversary. Great food, great service, and the chef came and visited us. Its décor is based on William Jennings Bryan and other notable Nebraska politicians of the past. It's close to the Nebraska capitol building and legislators and other business people come often for lunch. They have $5 specials for lunch on Friday but otherwise their menu is pricey but worth it.

Hubby's 62nd Birthday Dinner
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.

great service and very good food
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.

When we arrived, we noticed
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.

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!!
