Good View, Fun Place, Ersatz BBQ

You have to give this place credit for providing a fun atmosphere with a fantastic view of the Hudson and the Highlands. On weekends, there is live music on the outdoor patio (which is big). People dance and have a good time. There's lots to drink and plenty of flat screens around the bar. Valet... read more

My wife and I stopped here for a BBQ dinner, and boy, it was good! My wife had the Brisket BBQ Entree with baked beans and greens. I had the 1/2 rack Monster St. Louis ribs with baked potato and broccoli with cheese. Both meals were outrageously delicious! The brisket my wife said is "melt in your mouth, fork tender... More

I've only been to Billy Joes at night for drinks but I finally decided to stop in for a late lunch. We sat at a table outside right by the water. The view is beautiful! I loved the Mac bites and the wings (we even ordered more to bring home). I live in the area and will definitely be back... More

This is a great place to go with friends and enjoy a fun meal! The place offers a beautiful view and I recommend to try and sit outside on a nice day. The music is always good and the food too!

They're very good at barbecue, not so much on steaks etc. The manager works very hard and gave my party a 100 dollar gift certificate once when the kitchen kept messing up the steak. Gteat atmosphere and location. Sit out on the deck next to the river and it's like being on vacation.

Out with friends by the Hudson river upstate NY and we stumbled upon this great outdoor restaurant. It always has live music and great drinks. To my delight they had a Gluten Free menu. Not a big one.. More like a few items but they did have BBQ wings. They were so delicious I go back regularly with my husband.... More

Went there for dinner this week with friends. As many have noted, the setting on the river is beautiful. I got a meat combo of 1/2 rack of St. Louis cut ribs plus sliced brisket. I wanted to hedge my bets since I had read several reviews that noted the ribs were too dry. I can honestly say that the... More

we arrived at about 615 pm and as told the wait would be about 45 to 60 minutes. We accepted and lo and behold only waited 25 minutes. We were bought to our deck table and then waited for a waitress to come over. As they approached she saw we had drinks already and wanted to know if we were... More

Nice set-up outside friendly waitress and good food, Right on the water so you catch a breeze and with umbrella at table you had a nice lunch and did not get too hot. Nice choice a craft beers too.
