Named after William Jennings Bryan, the elegant "Noble-Dawes House" located near the Nebraska State Capital, was built in 1887. The Chautauqua Bar and the dining rooms named for William Jennings Bryan, Charles Dawes and George W. Norris give a fascinating glimpse into a grand era in U.S. History. Since 1986 it has been the home of Billy's Restaurant. We find the finest ingredients for our diverse menu selections. Our entree specialties include steak, lamb, duck, veal, seafood and delicious vegetarian dishes. Whether it be our premium steaks, the freshest produce, homemade soups, or incomparable seafood, you will take home a memory of fine food, fine wine and excellent service whenever you visit Billy's Restaurant. Keep us in mind for catering: private parties, family brunches, prenuptial dinners, bridal luncheons, holiday parties, office gatherings or dinner for two.

Rated 2 out of 5 by The first time we dined there last year the food was excellent and we enjoyed it very much. However, this time the owner/chef was out front (thus not cooking) and I think the food suffered because of it. The soup must have been reheated from day before still or cooked too long because the veggies and barley were so overcooked it was pure mush and the base had gotten thick and rather salty at that point. The scallops were NOT washed properly at all. While scallops many times have some "grit/sand" in them, these literally had ROCKS in them. The person who ordered them could remove pieces from his mouth and we could hear the "crunching" as he ate. The steak was bland and tasteless as if it had literally no seasoning on it at all. The mashed potatoes were dried up and seemed day old as well, very little flavor. The crab cakes had been so doused in dill sauce that you could hardly taste the crab in them. Overall just so disappointed. I think the chef needs to get back in the kitchen and restrain his staff. My husband is a chef in town as well and usually he LOVES coming to Billy's but this was a far cry from what it used to be. Feb 23, 2015

Rated 4 out of 5 by It was a little overpriced for what was served. The food was good and large portions, but not much selection. The steak ordered medium well, was more like medium rare. The chef greeted us and chatted a bit afterwards. Dec 31, 2014
