Hamburger ( a specialty) overcooked. Fish sandwich delicious but small piece of fish.

A friendly neighborhood bistro with very good service and food. Prices seem high for a casual bistro. The only negative comment in our party was that it was too dark and seemed gloomy. Put some good lamps on the tables and it would make a big difference.

I wanted to make a reservation for 8 people, but Open Table indicated there was no availability during the 4 hour brunch. I was able to make a reservation for 2 people. We arrived st 10:00 am and during our entire stay not one person showed up despite it being a rainy day (perfect for Sunday brunch). Because of Open Table, this restaurant lost a lot of business that day.

We won't be going back because the menu never changes. Even the specials get recycled. Also, my salmon was cooked poorly. We'll be headed somewhere else next time.

I love this neighborhood restaurant. The servers are local kids we often know, and they are very helpful and responsive. The food is consistently good and fresh and though the prices all just went up in the last year, it is still worth the $.

Wonderful & warm inviting restaurant! Great place to catch up & visit with our
friends who also told me they rate it 5 stars!! Service was great along with the
food. The four of us all had a different dish & all were excellent.

Took a long time to be acknowledged by the hostess and by waitress (a few people ignored us). No drink until over 20 minutes after being seated. Once activated our waitress was attentive and helpful. Bread and martini were delicious, by our entrees were middle of the road. Might go back, but not in a rush.

Billy's is a gem in Barrington. If your tired of Ferderal Hill and looking for Good food its worth the 10-15 min drive from Providence.

My burger was dry and unseasoned which was unusual for Billy's. The service was not that great. We felt like we were an afterthought. I still love Billy's for its unique menu and cozy atmosphere. Perhaps tonight it was just an "off night" for them.

Went for family meal. Food was outstanding, fried belly clams best I've ever had. (And I've had too many). Kid's mac&cheese was really pasta with a parmesan white sauce, and kid wouldn't eat it. Issue was handled extremely gracefully by manager -- charge for meal deleted, and kid given grilled cheese. We'll be back !

Most food on the menu is seafood based; I have a shrimp and lobster allergy and specifically told the waitress this (she dissuaded the Caesar dressing because of the allergy) and she put the allergy on the order. so, I ordered eggplant parm. within a few minutes of eating, my throat began to swell - the eggplant was sautéed in the SAME PAN as shrimp. so much for honoring the seafood allergy. thankfully, the Benadryl remedied the situation. unfortunately, while local, won't be back.

We were a little dismayed at the size of the portions for the price. For almost $30 apiece, the men's meals did not fill them. The food was good, just overpriced and small portions. One bright spot was the pink sangria. YUM!

Was meeting a friend halfway and found this restaurant still available for reservations on Saturday night. We had a good time, food was good and they had a lot of specials that sounded delicious. My boyfriend has the swordfish special and said it was delicious.

Consistent food quality and great preparation and taste! Comfortable, quiet setting for family get-together, out-to-dinner occasion. Owner and staff very friendly and helpful with menu choices, especially an outstanding variety of specials for the day. Very handsome, ambiance with warm wood flooring, paneling and furniture, super bar seating and comfortable table-and-chair arrangements or cozy booth seating. Appreciate the chef's choice of local produce, meats, and seafood, with imaginative preparation. What a great place that is so convenient to get to!

My husband and I went here because we received a gift certificate from a friend. The atmosphere was pleasant, the place was clean, and amazingly very few people were there. It could have been because it was a Sunday evening at 5pm. But we enjoyed our meal and enjoyed the quiet atmosphere. I am sure it can be quite busy there in the evening due to the bar and the large television in close proximity. It is definitely a place we would go to again.
