I heard a few of my heavy drinking friends tell me how great this place was. Warning never listen to friends who drink too much. For some reason food tastes better when your in your cups..As we sat down a group of female cyclist entered and became very noisy at the bat which filtered over toward yelling. I found myself...

We had not been to Tara's with its specials for years. We were surprised that nothing on the menu appealed. Off we went to downtown Port Jeff. There we rediscovered Billie's 1890. The menu is varied and caterers to all. Those who want an American version of tapas will be pleased with the appetizers. For those who want a meal,... More

An older establishment, very consistently good food, cold beer, lovely atmosphere with varied age groups throughout the evenings. Good place to knock back a few!

A tight place but that makes it interesting. Staff is friendly and hustles. Drinks are made well. Younger crowd especially when college is out

Basic pub fare but always good. I usually get a sliced steak on garlic bread and my wife gets the French dip or Reuben. Often arrives looking different from the last time, but always cooked as requested and always tastes good. Start with $0.25 buffalo wings (10 piece minimum) - ordered hot and extra crispy and exactly what we got.... More

It's a fun place , good bar food ,bartenders are friendly. But if your over thirty you may want to head up the road to Tara's. I'm in my fourties, and I felt completely out or place.

I'm not too much into pub fare, and even for that, I used to have a different favorite place in Port Jefferson. So I was almost reluctant to try this out. To my surprise, this turned out a remarkably nice casual dining experience. Competently made burgers, pretty basic but good seafood, and excellent beer on tap. Service was polite and... More

Billie's 1890 has been a bar establishment since the year 1890, so there is alot of history there & has a cool old vibe to it. There is an eating area separate in the back where you can grab a descent hamburger, and in the front the bar is a fun place on a friday or saturday night. After 10pm... More
