It has been years since we went to Billy's, and that was a mistake on our part. The service was outstanding, the food was delicious and we will be going back soon.
With a building lost in time, the food and service are exemplary and with huge portions the value is another feat!!
I’ve seen other reviews complain about slow service. I would not consider the service at Billy’s as speedy, but I wouldn’t expect it, or even want it. Why go to a restaurant like this to speed through the experience? Take your time and enjoy it if you get the chance! If you want fast, hit the drive through at McDonald’s.
Very nice restaurant. My wife and I will be coming back.
Crab cakes are the best here! We really enjoyed our dinner here and definitely will be back!
There were eight of us for dinner. The food was excellent. My steak was particularly good. Jordan did a great job taking care of our table. Some of our party had never been there before, and they noted they would definitely return again.
We always enjoy Billys restaurant. The food never disappoints! Theres a reason Billy’s has been around for many years.
Our dinner experience was very nice. The service was top-notch. The food was delicious & full of flavor.
Our Wedding Anniversary
We love Billy’s, they never disappoint
This was our first time going to Billy’s and we will be coming back. It was fantastic quality of food with a great quantity. We thought everything was pretty cheap too considering our fine dining experience. We are excited to go back!
Had a wonderful time at this restaurant. My wife and I were meeting our son and his wife here. Our son's wife is starting orthodontics school at the University of Nebraska in July and they were driving to Lincoln from California, taking a ten day tour of various national parks on the drive. We flew in and met them there for dinner. We were seated in the bar area at the only table in the room, which was great for conversation. The food was excellent and the portions were generous. The service was great. As we had much to talk about we stayed for well over two hours and were the last to leave. The chef (owner?) came out to talk with us at the end of the evening. He's quite an interesting fellow. All-in-all we couldn't have planned a better evening with good food, good service, and in a setting that greatly facilitated our conversation. We will no doubt be back when we next visit Lincoln.
The restaurant is located in a charming old building. It’s a great place to enjoy a quiet,leisurely meal. The tomato bisque soup was the best I’ve ever had and my fish entree was outstanding!
Billy's is a very unique and quiet restaurant. We love dining there because of the quiet atmosphere and the friendly staff. The food is always excellent!
The service and food were great in this restaurant that has character. This is a great special occasion place to enjoy dinner and great drinks.
Billy's is a quaint, quiet, and fun restaurant to be at. The servers are always helpful and pleasant. The food is excellent and the quiet atmosphere allows you to easily carry on conversations among friends.
Billy's has become one of favorite restaurants. It is a consistently pleasant dining experience that is very conducive to good conversation and predictably great food and great service. We highly recommend it.
Always a great dining experience. Would recommend to try this place.
Get a reservation. Good service, appropriately paced. Meal presentation was well done.
A unique menu and unique decor. Great service. Will go back again.
The service was quite poor and the duck tasted reheated.
Awesome setting, great food. Really enjoyed our dining experience
Family get together
Attended on Valentine's weekend. Excellent choice for the occasion. Dining atmosphere, wait service, and food and drink selection were all superb. Server was extremely helpful in drink and wine selection. Portions were abundant and presentation very appealing. Cost was reasonable and consistent with the quality of the food. Would return and highly recommend for those desiring a unique and personal dining experience.
Absolutely the best place for a special date. For us it was Valentines Day. Waiter took great care of us. At one point chef Nader came out and chatted with us. Didn’t feel rushed at all. It was full but quiet. Amazing food. Reasonable prices. Just a wonderful night. This place is a GEM! You cannot go wrong.
Service was exalant and the steak was very good. Didn't care for the crab cakes to much but over all a great meal in a relaxing atmosphere
Billy's never fails to deliver an amazing experience. It you have specific dietary needs, the chef comes out to find out your preferences in person! One of our very favorite restaurants...
One of our Lincoln favorites. It was the perfect pace for our anniversary dinner.
We had a lovely anniversary dinner here. The service was wonderful and the meal was unmatched.
We are happy you had a great anniversary with us Blair. We hope to have you back soon. Thank you!
Excellent service and atmosphere. Very reasonably priced. A limited offering of food and drinks. My filet was fine but I have had a number of better steaks in Lincoln and Omaha. The potatoes were not my favorite; heavy garlic. We had our prenup dinner here in 1993 and wanted to visit on our anniversary. Glad we went back, nice place but the food was not overwhelming. But a nice place to hit once in a while.
Thank you for sharing your experience, Rich! We try our best to ensure ingredients are fresh and full of flavor. We hope to have you back!
The food was wonderful and very generous portions. Our waiter Jordan was awesome.
We are looking forward to going back soon.
We think Jordan is pretty awesome too! Thank you Bob!
Food and service were great. Wonderful little place. We had a couple of louder middle aged men at the next table.... not Billy's fault.
Thank you for your Patronage Dale! Next time just let your server know if it gets a little to loud in your area. We can discreetly move you to different area!
Every single thing was awesome and Jordan is a great waiter!
Thank you Megan! We appreciate your support!
Billy's never disappoints and this was no exception. The scallops succotash was excellent! Nadar is always so welcoming and Jordan did a lovely job serving us. The atmosphere was calming and elegant. Thank you!
Thank you Marcia! We always look forward to our great customers, just like you!
I love Billy's. I was pleased to see the number of patrons at the restaurant and how the seating was arranged. I felt safe regarding the current Covid-situation. They are doing a great job.
We always want our customers and staff to feel safe! Thank you Freida! Hopefully we can have you and your guests back soon!
What a wonderful place to celebrate our 43rd anniversary. We enjoyed our evening so much!!!
We are so happy you enjoyed your anniversary here at Billy's! Thank you Barb.
The wait staff was very kind and attentive. Unfortunately the restaurant was very warm and the chef ran out of veal. The quality of food was beyond subpar. I brought our food home and added the needed spices and cooked the duck in the proper way.
I am a well versed cook. I m experienced in French, Italian, Asian and middle eastern cuisine. My suggestion is that this established either finds a new chef or hires a sou chef that has any experience is fine cuisine.
Greetings! We appreciate your feedback and value your patronage. We will take time to go over the preparation of the duck, to insure it meets our standards. Due to current conditions we are sometime not able to find ingredients that meet our standards. Unfortunately, that is why the veal was off the menu. We hope to see you soon and look forward to your patronage. Thank you!
Dining at Billy's is a pleasure. You are treated like family and the wait staff is very friendly and interactive with the customers. They are always looking to see if you need anything and from time to time, the chef will visit your table to see if you are satisfied with your meal. A great place to dine since it is very quiet and peaceful.
We are so happy you enjoyed your time at Billy's! Thank you again!
Delicious food... Unique setting... Personal and attentive service... A lovely place where we feel comfortable dining even during the pandemic...
We enjoyed a wonderful evening. We were celebrating selling our house and wanted a quiet evening with good food and wine. We brought in a special bottle we had in reserve for 14 years and enjoyed a pork dish and a chicken dish. Food was excellently prepared and brought out exactly on time. Ambianceout is like eating in an old mansion. Very comforting.
Staff was masked and tables separated.
We look forward to many more dining experiences.
Thank you Mesa! We are happy you were able to enjoy your special bottle of wine with a special dinner from Billy's! Hopefully your new house is everything you wanted!
We enjoyed our experience. We dined on a Tuesday and basically had a entire room to ourselves.
