great food, great views

My husband and I have been to Billy Joes a few times and have not been disappointed. We love the Newburgh waterfront area, and seem to end up at Billy Joes just about every time. This place serves singles, couples, and family groups and does it well. At our last visit, I had a catfish po-boy... read more

We ventured into Newburgh, and to Billy Joe’s Ribworks, to celebrate my mother’s birthday. A few minutes’ drive from Beacon, it was one of the best options, or so we thought, for food and drinks for the evening. Billy Joe’s is set up in a warehouse-like property which provides ample space for dining, drinking and even some dancing. The place... More

You have to go and take as many people with you. This place is awesome. Great atmosphere and the food is very delicious! Me and my family go at least1 to 2 times a month. During the summer they open the doors to the deck. It feels so good to eat and drink right by the water. The waitresses are... More

Great view. Good service. Fun line dancing. Ribs were giant size but WAY dry. Prices were fair but for a rib place was hoping for more.

We took our child out for her birthday. I had a great time, with about 8 people who were all full to the brim when done eating. My wife and I stayed for the live music. Fabulous! We were there in January but in the summer with a live band on the weekend, I'll be there. Moderately low in the... More

Me and my buddy's went here for guys night. Easy to get to. We parked about 100 yards down the street, very busy area with other eateries. The ribs had lots of flavor, lot of meat, was amazing. Our server was always around and was very sweet asking if we need anything. Left very happy. Be warned coming from CT,... More

A fun easy going restaurant on Newburg ' s waterfront. The food was great large portions with excellent sides. I had the Brontosaurus rubs and beef briskit. The meats were tender flavorful and well seasoned. And the ribs made me feel like Fred Flinstone. Definitely a good barbecue spot come hungry leave stuffed you won't be disappointed!
