Chill by the river

We dined on the patio (they will let you bring your dog--and they even brought him a bowl of ice water). The view over the river is great, and there were hummingbirds at several feeders. The food was very good. The fried okra was exceptional. Very relaxing.

I ate recently with a group of 12 and the food at Billy Gene's was fantastic. I had the country fried steak but nearly everyone in the group had something different and they all raved about how good the food was. The service was fast and friendly and accommodating our large group at a moments notice was greeted with a... More

At least it is open on a Sunday, when most of the better Kerrville restaurants aren't. Not fine dining, but food is better than average, although a bit pricey for what you get. Service was rather lackadaisical. OTOH, I was by myself and there were lots of tables with large groups of family and friends. The wine list is very... More

Sometimes you just get a craving for some good ol' comfort food and this is the place to find it! Be sure to save room for dessert (you will thank me for that tip) and ask to be seated by a window or on the deck so you can gaze out at the beautiful Guadalupe River.

The location is nice, the decor very dated and it's obviously a favorite for seniors. The menu offered very few healthy options and the food was mediocre at best. The prices were moderate, but I won't return due to the quality of food we had to tolerate. Nothing special in any category, very noisy and well lit. No ambiance other... More

There were 4 adults who went to eat dinner here on our vacation. The food was delicious. We each got something different and each was very pleased with their meal. There were so many choices. The waitress was so friendly and helpful. We would go back again!

Good view and good basic comfort food. Something for everyone, from appetizers to desserts. We had a good time, good food, good service.
