It’s my new favorite restaurant in Lincoln! The food was delicious and the chef was amazing! I’m pescatarian and wanted the pasta but didn’t want the chicken and bacon so he personally came to our table and asked what type of food I would want in it and went with shrimp and it was so good! The coziness and warmth inside is great too. All around great dining experience.

The restaurant was previously a house, so the dining experience was very intimate. My date and I felt it necessary to talk quietly, almost in a whisper, since the place was so quiet and proper. The chef came to our table a couple of times and was hilarious and inviting, so after that the place didn’t feel stuffy. This is not a cheap place to go, but the food was excellent and it was a great overall experience

We love Billys and decided to celebrate my husband's birthday there. We think of it as a homey quiet place to go...table for two in the corner type of place. We did have a great table foe two but there was a crowd in the room next door who laughed at everything anybody in their group said. I know they were having lots of fun but a couple of people in the group had very annoying g laughs and our dinner was not as much fun because of them. This in no way reflects bad on Billys because it was not their fault. Our waitress was great...interjected a bit of humor and was very attentive. She had great suggestions such as the Brussel sprouts for an appetizer. The whole meal was delicious and very well presented. The portions are huge so we both ended up taking some home. They were very gracious about acknowledging my husband's birthday with a delicious apple torte dessert. We love Billys and will definitely return.

The food was excellent and the service was great. Prices are very reasonable. I had the Chicken Marsla and my wife had the lamb shank---simply outstanding.

Great service, superb food, every time and just down the street. It's a favorite for a special lunch or dinner. Our anniversary meal was the best yet.
