We eat here every year while visiting Old Forge. It is a very reliable restaurant with plenty of seating, large portions, and friendly staff. There is ample parking too. I've never gotten dessert because I've always been stuffed after the meal! Recommend the meatballs and the eggplant.

Open for Winter Season!
Wonderful food to be found at this charming restaurant where we celebrated a birthday on a recent Saturday night. The menu is well done and small in choice which ensures a fine dining experience, and did not disappoint.Start with some wonderful small plates to be shared by the table, we had the crepes (our favorite), the Thai salad and shrimp skewer - all delicious with a beautiful presentation. I should add the fresh braked bread and olives which are served complimentary, are fantastic! We had seconds on those! (We came hungry).
Main courses included the roast lamb chops, trout, salmon, roasted chicken breast, filet mignon and veal tenderloin. Each plate served to perfection. We were all more than satisfied - FULL would be the word. Highly recommended. Oh, and a lovely and thoughtful touch was a piece of delicious key lime pie for the birthday celebrant!

My husband and I took a break from walking in downtown Old Forge and stopped for coffee. We also had the homemade Corn Chowder! It was yummy.

Coming from Long Island NY who would think an Italian Restaurant named Billy's would be tops in our book. Nice atmosphere, food is great and Billy makes it a point to visit every table. We've been here in the past and will continue to visit whenever we are in Old Forge.

After having lunch in Old Forge-the frosty weather made us go back to the RR depot 2 hours early. This place was hopping. Car show outside, great band playing classics outside, serving shot on the porch, nice restaurant inside-but we ate so we went to the bar where the overwhelmed staff was quick and friendly as could be. Had a couple of drinks and watch the SU game while making conversation with people who were all around us.
Could ask for a nicer way of waiting for the train to board. Definitely check it out if you are there.

They do serve food, but we always stop for ice cream or milkshakes at night. Kids are friendly, they have a large assortment of ice cream and dip tops, and its always a family favorite.

A must stop in your visit to Old Forge! As you walk by you can't avoid the delicious smell of these amazing donuts! The fry cakes are to die for and there are many other creative varieties to try as well! Highly recommended!

We ate there on a Sunday because we know its their BBQ night. I ordered a steak and country spare rib combo plate. You pick 3 sides! And get a roll and a brownie with each meal. The food is great! The service is great. Their beef barley soup is the best I have ever tasted- and I order that soup anywhere that's serving it. One family member said it was his first time in there and loved it.

First stop in Old Forge located in the middle of the main walk of shops and stores. Quaint little place with a small town diner feel. Serves breakfast and lunch. The switch happens at 1130. A few stores and liquor store within 100 meters. Good breakfast for about $9 - $10 per person. This two restaurants in one. Walt's and Billy's. Enter through the parking lot next to the liquor store.
