Billy Club is a popular spot for whiskey drinkers, and also one of my favorite spots to brunch. When you brunch at Billy Club, you get the upscale experience without the expensive food prices. The entrees we ordered on our last visit ranged from $10 to $14. IMO the best part of this price point is I have more $$ left to spend on other stuff – AKA brunch beverages. After all, brunch without booze is just a sad late breakfast.


The atmosphere here is elegant, yet cozy and comfortable. The service here undoubtedly tops my list. Being seated by a friendly, attentive server is always an attractive way to start a Sunday Funday.

We ordered:

  • Au Natural: 2 eggs any style, hash, meat, toast
  • Biscuit Sammy: Scrambled eggs, Canadian bacon, cheddar, hash
  • Short Rib Hash: Braised short rib, poached eggs, scallions, gravy


Our Food Faves

Billy Club’s homemade biscuits are my personal menu favorite. Think melt-in-your mouth ooey gooey goodness meets flaky and fluffy. This breakfast sandwich paired with the flavorful hash is everything I could ask for and more, and somehow only $10. Deal of a lifetime. Honestly.

As the name suggests, the Au Natural is a classic choice. But it’s anything but average. First of all, perfecting over easy eggs is in this chef’s skill set. Throw in small, super crispy pieces of bacon and a heaping helping of hash, and this “standard” breakfast hits all the right notes, and so much more.

A day that begins with meat and potatoes is a good day, especially when it’s Billy Club’s short rib hash. This dish has all the flavors from juicy to spicy. Our one suggestion: Give us MORE meat just because it was soooo yummy.

In my experience (over multiple brunches, chill guys), you can’t go wrong with the Biscuits & Gravy, Omelette Pick of the Week, or the Elm St. French Toast.

Drink Picks

Let’s talk dranks. Billy Club obviously has a rep for making mixology magic happen. This applies to their brunch cocktails too. You can’t go wrong with a Bloody Mary or a mimosa from here. Want to try something different? Gin lovers you may like the French 75, and the John Stamos cocktail is one you fall in love with at first sip. The mixture of flavors are distinct and delicious, and yes this drink is named after the American actor. Have mercy!

Billy Club is open for brunching every Sunday. I recommend reserving your table since this place is on the smaller side. If planning ahead isn’t your jam, drinking a cocktail or few at the bar while you wait to be seated is always an excellent alternative.

Either way, I highly recommend adding Billy Club to your brunch bucket list. Cheers!
