Wow a nice treat

The area in the Newburg water front really surprised us. The food wasn't bad and the brisket you can cut with a fork! The restaurant was literally the biggest I've seen in a l long in this country.

I went with my family last summer. We sat out on the deck outside and AWAY from the speakers. It was great! I love sitting by the water. Since we weren't near the speakers, the music was at a really good level and we could talk and actually hear each other! The food and service was good and the ambience... More

Had lunch there today. Perfect day to sit outside and enjoy good food, beautiful view and plesant weather. Good BBQ chicken, but today my St. Louis ribs were somewhat dry. That's why I gave only 4 star rating. The mac-n-cheese was to die for. Portions are large so plan on a doggie box .

This was our second visit to Billy Joe's, proving that at least they appear to be consistent. We first called for reservations and were told they do not reserve for less than 8. I remembered that from before, but had hoped they had somehow come to realize how unwise that is. People driving 30 miles to enjoy a night out... More

I've been here twice and have not been disappointed. The first time with my husband and the second time we raved so much about it that we had to bring our sons back. They had the full rack of ribs and I had the pulled pork sandwich. Both great choices. No room for dessert.

Been here 3 times and great each time. Must admit enjoy it more in the summer when the deck is open for dining. They do have live music on nights but there is plenty of space so you don't have to be sitting next to a speaker. only problem i have with the place is we were told you have... More

Went with 2 other couples and sat out on the deck. The atmosphere was great but the service was not fantastic. Our waiter came by and got our drink order but then never came back for approximately 20 minutes. Then when he did come back, he didn't have all of the drinks. We ordered appetizers which were delicious however, when... More

The restaurant seemed pretty crowded but we were sat down right away. Our waitress wasn't the most talkative but we overheard some pointers from the waitress in the next booth. The cheese fries were soooo good and sooooo filling! The food was good (decent barbecue which is rare in NY), the atmosphere was lovely. We would definitely go again.

Attended a graduation celebration last weekend, with a party of 11. First, our reservation was lost, and the staff weren't great about handling that mixup. We did get seated at a very nice table, and the weather was lovely. Our server insisted on calling all the women in our party "my lovely," which was downright weird. He was also on... More

Had dinner here a few weeks ago with 5 friends. It was spectacular weather and the waterfront was hopping! This is a casual, lively place - prices for food are fair, service is friendly and there is something always going on. There was a singer playing guitar when we got there and a DJ was setting up for later in... More
