An American bistro and bar, owner Barbara Genetti has created a menu that is innovative with a home style feeling.
Whether dining out for a special occasion or simply sharing a meal with family and friends, Billy’s is a welcoming choice.
I was cold! (Perhaps it was a result of where I was seated.)
New Years Eve !
Billy’s scallops were excellent! Food is always great there. You don’t have to go to Providence to get a great dinner.
Overall great experience! Delicious food and good service!
Two of our group split a salad and a pizza; and loved both courses. One got a special and loved it. I enjoyed the deal parm; tasty as ever.
Billy's is a great little neighborhood restaurant. I really like the ambiance, and the servers are always very friendly and attentive. I've been there many times now, and I keep coming back. This time, we had a pizza that tasted it or smelled like lighter fluid, so perhaps whatever stove is being used is imparting that flavor. Other than that, the night was very nice.
Always tasty food and wonderful hospitality; a gem!
Open table reservation for 6:30; waited an hour; the restaurant sat people ahead of us who did not have a reservation???
Billy's is a regular dinner destination and we are always happy with the food and service. On this most recent dinner outing, the host was very accommodating because our party size was 5 individuals but I mistakenly made the reservation for 4 people. No problem! We were quickly and very, very comfortably seated.
Stuffed cod special was fabulous!
The service was very slow tonight! The food and drinks were fabulous.
Great selection in menu
Bit disappointed in my food. The burger was under cooked, almost raw and under seasoned. I ordered the black and blue burger. I was disappointed because I've frequented Billy's several times, and while I appreciate the updates to the menu, the original items they've had as staples on their menu were not good. The service was extremely slow last night, in spite of our waitress being very friendly.
Everything was good, service, food, and ambiance. Thought prices were a bit high $180 for four people with only one appetizer and no dessert.
Excellent meal and service. The menu selection is great.
Always friendly attentive service
Excellent food quality
Great neighborhood atmosphere
My second time at Billy's and it was as good or better than the first. They have a great staff and serve up exceptionally good food. What else can I say?
We have been here several times before but the service, really the kitchen, was unbelievably slow this night. Service was not good either, it took forever to get silverware, while our food got cold, we got an apology but no offer of anything such as free dessert, to compensate for the terri leg and slow service.
This was the first time dining at Billy's. Each of us had a different meal and all felt the food was excellent. Service was just right. Very nice interior and very good atmosphere. Will definitely return again.
Restaurant was almost entirely empty when our party of 7 arrived. Despite that, the service was somewhat slow. Food was okay, nothing special.
I've been to Billy's about 15 times-20 times and keep wanting to like it more than I actually do since it's basically THE neighborhood restaurant in Barrington. I find the food to be mediocre at best (my husband and I often end up there when we want to dine local). This last time I ordered a Cobb salad. The lettuce (Romaine) was brown on the edges; there was hardly any avocado; and the chicken was overcooked/tough. I find the food to be overpriced for the quality. My husband ordered Chicken Verdicchio and while he enjoyed the flavor, he complained about the amount of liquid in the bottom of the bowl (think broth/soup).
The service is ok but often slow (this last time the restaurant was half empty). Overall, I find Billy's to be disappointing more often than not.
Always great burgers, friendly wait staff. Service was very slow this time around - took an hour to get our food (three burgers and one entree). Will be back, just a little disappointed in the delay.
My shrimp scampi was awful. Shrimp uncooked and linguini completely tasteless.
The waitress took it off the bill when she saw I didn’t eat it.
Wait staff were all gathered talking ignoring tables. Very, very slow to fill water, clear plates, offer another glass of wine and essentially be attentive. We have been many times. This was unusual but will impact decision to go back.
Billy’s was the perfect scene for our three young families. Including 2 three year old busy boys...Billy’s staff took great care of us!!
I am discouraged that we made an open table reservation and then received the message that we received 100 points. Then another email saying we did not. We use open table all the time. Can this be adjusted?
Great food, great service. Might have been a bit pricey than the last time I was there.
Outstanding staff and owners. Best calamari ever Great cod.
Pleasantly surprised in our visit to this strip mall restaurant- good quality all around.
Tried new things tonight, like fried clams, so delicious! Always a treat to come to Billy’s.
First time at Billy’s. Service was great, staff attentive and friendly. Entrees were delicious. We enjoyed seafood dishes (halibut, littlenecks, calamari and muscles). Definitely will keep on my list for future dinners.
Great burger as usual.
food, service , ambience , and friendliness was wondeerful as usual.
Our waitress, Amanda, was terrific. Food excellent. I had the Reuben special as I am a big Reuben fan; it was the best Reuben I’ve had anywhere.
I ordered the filet and my wife the scallops. ..both were good. The carrot cake is a must for desert! Obscure location but the food speaks for itself...service could have been better but it was super busy. We would return.
I took a friend to celebrate his birthday. He had halibut over roasted vegetables and raved about the meal.
We agreed we'd return soon.
As always, everyone in our party of six enjoyed the evening.
Food, service, quality....all was perfect!!
I would rather not write a review that has any hint of negativity. Billy's was a good example of an average eatery.
