Seafood combo plates big enough to share, onion rings are to die for. We go here about once a month for cheat night. Not greasy, batter excellent.

Billy's has been around for as long as I can remember. A family owned restaurant that you can do phone orders for easier pick-ups, order on site, or stay there and eat if you like. Usually plenty of parking and very easy to get to. Just on the line of Wakefield and Melrose, it has been known by they locals... More

I always get a Roast Beef plate when I go. I'm a regular. Copious amounts of fries and onion rings- have a friend get a sandwich and share. Roast Beef is the north eastern Massachusetts thing, like Philadelphia has Steak & Cheese and Maine & NH have their weird (but delightful) Squishy bread Italian sandwhich/subs. Billy's is a hidden gem.... More

Thier roast beef is alway tender and tasty. Better than that 'K' place. Service is always on point. Onion rings are crispy! Shrimp plate also a good choice!

Super casual, family friendly, neighborhood joint. None of us opted for the roast beef but everyone was happy with their meals. I got a clam chowder to go with my grilled chicken wrap. A++ in my book. I even went back to get a chowder to go when we finished up.

ordered a sandwich and was charged the full amount . When i was leaving saw a sign senior citizen discount? I am a 75 yr old elderly man with snow white hair and they couldn't give me the discount. I didn't see the sign until i was leaving . I'm never going back.
