We visited this place for a milkshake (for the whole American mall diner experience). Our waitress was friendly and not too pushy and the milkshakes we shared was nice. The fact that it's in a mall does affect the atmosphere a bit but the checkered flooring and red sparkly seats make up for it.

We really enjoyed Billy Hearbeats. Typical American diner fare with generous serves at a reasonable price. Served by friendly staff and very convenient in the Lloyd shopping centre. We were staying across the road in the Doubletree, just a short walk away. We enjoyed it so much, we went there twice!

I ordered the spicy black bean burger. It was pretty good but the bun was very cold. It seemed like it was recently thawed but they didn't heat it up further. The burger patty was also very mushy, but it still tasted delicious. We all got shakes as well. I got the pumpkin spice shake and absolutely loved it. My... More

We go to eat here every time we visit Portland. They have the best milkshakes around, thick & creamy, with lots of flavor & they also give you the rest of the shake to enjoy all of it, which a lot of places don't do. There burgers are wonderful. I had a Chicken Caesar Salad, it was great. My husband... More

Just like the Good Old Days. My wife and I enjoy eating at 50's style restaurants and Cafes. Billy Heartbeats does a nice job of helping us to remember simpler times. Wait Staff was excellent and very helpful. Worth going out of your way for! Definitely a two thumbs up experience!

Whenever we go to Lloyd Center, we end up eating here if the need calls. The other options are all fast food or just not appealing at the time. I love the feel of the eatery and that it's kid friendly. Service is reliable and friendly.

UGH. We took our 4 Chinese friends on 4 July to experience "American" food as was their desire. Staff was lovely but the food was wretched. We were so embarrassed. My husband and I had cheese burgers which were the worst we have ever been served. Over-cooked, dry, falling apart, small meat-- not delicious. Fries were soggy, salty, cool, and... More

When you're stuck at a mall you're usually forced to choose from the standard mall fare which usually costs too much and satisfies too little. We had burgers here and really enjoyed having a restaraunt quality meal for a mall price. I would definatly go back.

This was a nice place with lots of atmosphere. While the waitress was a real sweetheart, the food was just bad. My girl and I both had black bean burgers that we took home. To our surprise the patties were both uncooked. Completely. Were not talking about rare here, it was literally uncooked. Apparently they dont sell many so maybe... More

I'm terribly sorry for the under cooked black bean burgers!! The positive side is that our house made black bean paddies are never raw (meat) as they are vegetarian. So no danger there. I'm sorry for the mistake. It sounds like an unfortunate temperature error on our part. Again, I am sorry. We really want and encourage our guests to... More
