Lots of hype on this place so since we were in the vicinity, we decided to turn up for breakfast. We ordered blueberry pancakes, some potato tots of some sort with onions and French toast. The coffee (I was told freshly brewed) tasted like plain water and bitter. Wait staff seem plain disinterested and food took a while to turn... More

Someone with poetry skills wrote the menu. I was led to expect great things but both dishes I ordered were mediocre - although the french toast and fruit/granola sunday looked good. Load atmosphere with televisions on the wall. Personable, attentive service. Good coffee.

Whenever we travel, we try to hit as many diners as possible: we just can't get enough of diners. Billy's Downtown Diner was a diner that followed their own beat. The place was filled with locals and travelers alike, but had an atmosphere fit for a trendy crowd. It was welcoming, fun and the food was amazing. My husband got... More

Billy's takes a twist on diner food with their variety of breakfast and lunch offerings. It's all diner pricing, but far from diner quality food. I'll definitely be back!

We sat outside on a lovely Saturday. Just parked the car, walked right up and were seated pronto. Drinks and food came out quickly. Couldn't have asked for a better waitress. Ordered Lily's cornflake breaded French toast. It was excellent; and this time the blueberries were fresh compared to early Spring when we came the blueberries were from frozen. The... More

For a Sunday, it was surprisingly difficult to find a good place for breakfast, but Billy's was far and away the best choice. Great service, great breakfast food, very tasty and good prices. We would definitely eat here again.

I have been here a number of times throughout the years. This was my first time back since the rebuilding and I'm happy to see that it is as good as ever. It is not on the level of the high end restaurants in town, but holds its own in a crowded field of downtown eateries. The food and service... More

I took my daughter there for breakfast one morning last month. I've never been to Billy's but heard a lot about it. I have to say I wasn't disappointed. The service was great and friendly, the food very good and the portions almost too big. Overall a great experience for breakfast. I would definitely recommend if you are looking for... More

Have been coming since it opened, and never disappoints. Usually service is quick and very friendly. Always filled with hustle and bustle because it's such a popular spot. Many over the top pancake and French toast options. They will alter a menu item if you are opting for a healthier choice too, which is great. Would love cannoli pancakes all... More

We love to come here on the weekend for brunch/late breakfast. They are open until 3 and serve breakfast that entire time. Of course, there's a lunch menu to order off of as well, but we always stick with breakfast. Things we've liked: my favorite is green eggs and ham, a sandwich with pesto/spinach eggs that is delicious, huevos rancheros... More
