About Us


Whether you’re a local regular or an out of state visitor, it’s our pleasure to host you in our establishment. Billy Bob’s is owned and operated by Kari and Kevin Atchison. Our mission is simple: to provide a unique Northwoods dining experience that you’ll want to tell your friends about.

It all starts with the freshest food. Whether you’re in the mood for a juicy burger, a plate of hot wings, homemade fries, breaded cheese curds, cut chicken strips, or basket of fried fish, our mouth-watering grub comes in hearty portions that’ll make your taste buds sing. If you’re in the mood for pizza, then you’re in luck! Our homemade Chicago-style thin crust pizza is the best around. And the meat! Ah, the meat. We smoke all our chicken, ribs, pulled pork, brisket, and turkey on premises. We take great pride in our menu, and if you’ve eaten here you know why. We’re open every day at 11am, so remember us next time you get hungry for some lunch!

Fridays mean one thing at Billy Bob’s: FISH FRY! Sundays we open at 9am to serve our Breakfast Buffet, served from 9 to Noon. You can enjoy our Sunday Winner Winner Chicken Dinner Special all day long! That’s four pieces of mouth-watering fried chicken with mashed potatoes and homemade gravy, plus some coleslaw on the side.

In the Summertime, we wheel out the smoker for Thursday Ribs On the Deck! Thursday evenings you can sit outside, enjoy the fresh Northwoods air, and listen to the music of local classical rocker Jeff Calhoun… all while you chomp down our Award Winning Baby Back Ribs and Smoked Chicken! We could tell you how good our ribs are, but we’d rather let your taste buds do the talking. From October through May, each day of the week brings a different dinner special, so there’s always a great reason to stop in.

With six 55-inch plasma TV’s located throughout the bar, you’re sure to find just about any professional or collegiate sport you’re looking for. Football, baseball, basketball, racing, and hockey are all right here for the watching. You won’t have to miss a snap, a pitch, a lap, or a shot at Billy Bob’s. We suggest getting here early on game day, because with our game-time food and drink specials, this place can fill up quick!

Happy Hour is Monday through Friday, from 2pm to 5pm, when we serve half-price rail drinks and tap beer. Not to mention, we’re always looking for a reason to throw a party. Halloween, St. Patrick’s Day, New Year’s Eve, and more! Local favorite Jonny O supplies the beats and keeps the people dancing. And don’t forget about Fall Ride, the biggest party of the year. If you appreciate motorcycles, cold beer, and rock’n roll, you won’t want to miss out on our Fall Ride celebration!
