If going deaf and being witness to a crime is your thing, then by all means, step on inside this place. I've only gone here twice to see if a friend was there before a Yankees game, and both times walked right back out because I couldn't take much of it. The atmosphere is nice and the staff are nice (save for the bouncers who seem to pick and chose who to card/be friendly with). Prices go from bad to worse (I think the prices go up during or right before the Yankees games start, or so I've been informed). It's has very spacious back room with two long bars and lots of room to stand around, and has TVs and projector screens up for all to watch the game on, but with music so loud you can't even hear yourself think. I very much dislike this place because of the crowds it brings in. The first time I've walked in there, I bore witness to a large, most likely very drunk, man take a full on swing at a woman and deck her in the face. Right then and there is when I walked out of there and told my friend I'd meet him outside. Another time, I poked my head in there to meet a friend and instead saw police coming in to deal with a situation and once again walked right back outside. I don't know if this was a coincidence or a common occurrence, but with the vast array of clientele being the types of people I much rather not associate with, I'm banking on it that this type of stuff happens often, and often enough to keep me from wanting to go there unless I have to. Reminds me of some frat-filled beer hall in Long Island.

We're sorry you're not a fan of our place, Ramy. We obviously don't condone the types of things you've seen here and regret that you witnessed two rare occurrences on the few times you've given us a visit. You'd be pleasantly surprised to know that the things you described seeing seldom happen here, as is the case with any other bar. That said, we hope you'll give us another chance at some point in the future. We'd love to show you what we're capable of! -Billy's

Went there a few hours before the game. Prices were good. Waitress told us to hurry up and order because the prices were going up in a few minutes. Good burger, but the service was less than average. Burger ran me 10 bucks. Ordered a soda but never got it. Wasn't charged for it. We were there 4 hours before the game.

My mom, step dad and 2 kids had dinner there before Friday nights Yankee game. 2 burgers, meatloaf sandwich, chicken parm sandwich, and an open face sandwich and 1 coke for each of us, $100 before tip !!! Are you kidding me ? Also, the music was so loud, I couldn't hear the waitress or my family next to me. I asked if they could turn it down and I was told that the dj controls that. Way too loud and overpriced - NEVER AGAIN !!

We're sorry we let you down, David! We definitely don't want to make you feel robbed, so we'll take your feedback to heart and work to make things a little more enjoyable here for you and our guests, starting with the noise. Other than that, if you've got any feedback for us on how we could make the food a little more worth the prices, feel free to give us a call at (718) 665-6180 with any suggestions you may have. -Billy's

Well, I like it, this is my neighborhood, and I can tell you that it is 1 of the best places that I have gone to eat with my sisters, I have to point out that I do NOT go there during the Yankees games, the food is amazing and the staff is really friendly, I give it 4 out of 5 because nothing is perfect.

We're so glad you're a fan of the food, Francely! Thanks so much for all the kind words. Our door is always open for you so feel free to come by anytime! -Billy's

Aside from it being really nice on the inside, this place is not worth it. You will pay for over priced drinks and food for no reason. The wait staff is friendly but they forget your entire order completely. An hour later we got our food and drinks. Good music but it is so loud that u cant talk to anyone, that includes the wait staff and bartenders. Lower the music a little, hire more waiters so they are not overworked on tables, and lower your prices to be more in line with what everything is worth. 2 starts just for the decor, no other reason to come back here.

Ouch! We're sorry you're not a fan of our bar, Anthony! To be honest, we're a bit embarrassed that you had such a long wait to get your food and drinks, so we definitely understand your frustration with us. We know it's been a while since you wrote this, so we'd love to have you back for a chance to put our best foot forward with you. Hope to see you sometime soon!
