When ordering take out burgers the only name my kids say is Billy's. The food is always good, the service and staff are great in the restaurant. The Sunday brunch is awesome, especially for the price. The bar staff is less than acceptable, 4 out of 5 visits the bartenders have had bad attitudes. It is the bar service why... More

Food is good, and always what you expect. Service is reliable but not exceptional and has a great local bar. We have been here for special occasions, family gatherings and just cocktails. We are never disappointed and continue to visit at least a couple times per month.

Been here several times, always good but nothing great. Good to average wait service and just your average happy hour specials. Primerib was very good and their chicken wild rice soup was great.

We go to Billy's at least twice a month and have NEVER experienced bad food or service. It is a great place to have consistent good food and service and decent prices. The boneless wings and onion rings are very good as are the cheese curds. Happy hour has excellent food and drinks at good prices. They have a variety... More

A clean restaurant serving a decent range of beers well served by friendly attentive staff. Lively atmosphere in pretty cool vintage decor.

There's a neon sign in the window telling you they have free beer tomorrow! love the humor! Billy's had great food, and good service, but what I would really recommend is the Sunday Brunch, they put out a nice spread, reasonably priced, but they also serve good burgers!

At Billy's, you don't expect gourmet food. It's decent bar food and they pour a good drink. You see a lot of locals here, it's a great place to meet up with friends and is nothing fancy.

I like Anoka and the old buildings. This building is pretty cool. I seen online they had a Sunday brunch buffet for $12 a person so the girlfriend and I decided to check it out. We showed up and started to grab food. I grabbed ham slices , scrambled eggs, French toast, sausage links, and au gratin potatoes. The ham... More

Came in for lunch with a friend and we were seated at a booth in the dining room, waitress was friendly, gave us popcorn and water, and that was it. Literally. Sat there for 10 minutes, read the entire menu, and she never came back. Tired of waiting and hungry suggested we go sit at the bar for better service.... More
