Enjoyed a very good lunch with friends. The pulled pork is very good. Indoor and outdoor seating right on the river. Impressed with the service given the large number of tables. Very accommodating staff. The music seems a little loud. My guess is that is is a very lively place in the evening.

I will NEVER go back to this spot again. The service was HORRIBLE....I went there once when it first opened for dinner. It was about 5:30 PM I got Id'd at the door before I could even sit down and order my food which i found very VERY tacky. I ordered a medium rare prime rib, it was well done... More

We ordered the Billy Joe's feast that was for 2-3 people. Came with a rack of ribs, half a chicken, brisket and three sides. While the ribs were a big rack, the half a chicken looked more like half a cornish hen, and the serving of brisket was enough for no more than 2 people. The sides that we ordered,... More

We came here after a boat tour to Bannerman Castle. The food was pretty good. I've had better bbq at other places. The waiter was very nice and friendly and the atmosphere was fun. I think we would come back here again if in the area.

I would like to say the food is superb. The portions of what you pay is worth it. The drinks... Naah! It was like watered down.. not worth of the price you pay. Might as well just order a beer...overall, its ok... But food is a must try!

My wife and I went to this place to eat and had their ribs. I asked if they have baby backs but they said that their ribs were about the same. Well they were more like the size of St Louis ribs but real good. We also tried one of their local beers and we were not disapointed. The view... More

We were here on Monday, July 28, 2014 for lunch. The food and service were great, as usual, but that's not the story.... As a final New York treat, my wife and I were taking my parents out to lunch before we moved to Florida. We had been to Billy Joe's before and my family and I enjoyed it thoroughly... More

6 of us went on Tuesday line dancing night. Fun crowd - great views of Hudson River from patio seating. Everyone's food was good - drinks reasonably priced and friendly efficient staff. Parking is a bit of a challenge - be prepared to walk a few hundred feet ( not bad ). Worth the trip for very good ribs.
