Food and service are okay, nothing special. The location is the best part of the experience. Ribs were a bit of a disappointment and everything felt kind of greasy not fresh and clean.

The food is good here but it is over priced. The location is nice in the summer, right on the water and the staff are very nice. A lot cheaper options out there for good bba.

Views of the Hudson River are the best feature of this local BBQ restaurant. We enjoyed our burgers. The Mac n Cheese burger was very good! Not overwhelming like I had anticipated. Looking forward to going back in the summer so we can enjoy the outside deck & Live entertainment.

My husband and I had been wanting to try this place because he loves ribs-the location is wonderful, right on the Hudson River waterfront, but the ribs were a HUGE disappointment-no taste, except for the gooey sweet sauce. i had the brisket and the meat was also tasteless-except for the sauce! I don't mind a good sauce, but only to... More

Billy Joes is our go to when we want good BBQ. We have never had a bad meal. They have a good selection of BBQ meats and the sides are good, try the cheesy grits. Also they have reasonably priced kids meals which includes ice cream which my kids love. They have a good selection of craft brews which expands... More

Billy Joe's is a great place for a fun lunch, a great dinner or partying by the Hudson Riverfront. The ribs, pulled pork and side dishes are plentiful and tasty.

Beef ribs were good don't bother with much else. Atmosphere in the summer is fun outside but the service was not great. Prices are up there everywhere in the water and it's not like the food is great in any of the places we've eaten there. Stick to drinks and enjoy the water!

This is a big indoor and outdoor restaurant right on the Hudson River. Due to the live music and a few bars it's hard to have a conversion. The food is OK , but the place can get very crowded.
