The food was delicious and the view over the river was lovely. It was too hot to sit outside but on another day that would have been very pleasant. The service was also attentive.

Billy Gene's is truly a little piece of heaven! We ordered a bottle of wine and enjoy the scenery on the patio. The food we ordered never stood a chance! We spent almost 3 hours on the patio, enjoying good country life. Jeremy, our waiter, was one of the best waiters that I had ever had.

We stopped here to eat dinner after a long day of shopping and sightseeing in the Hill Country as i was near our hotel. We had the Chicken Fried Steak and it wasn't bad. The lemon meringue pie was good too. It was dark, so we couldn't see the river.

BGs is texas home cooking place with a few twists. They make an excellent gazpacho. Desserts are various and good. Staff is normally quite good unless it gets too busy. Lake side seating outside is a real plus.

Everyone in town raves about this place but the two times that I have visited I have found the food to be average. The service is very good and so is the value.

When everyone wants something different, this is the place to go, or even if everyone wants the same thing. It has diversity and the food is always good. The only problem you will have is what to choose, Their menu is not so large though that you will take long, Chicken fried steak fan, they have one of the best... More

We ate here on the recommendation of the young lady at the hotel. Apparently a local fav and with good reason. We sat outside and watched the river go by as we enjoyed our diner. Very nice way to end a hard day of traveling. They have great pie and cobbler for dessert.

This restaurant has quite a following and can get very crowded. The food choices are really good and service and quality of food are also very good. The restaurant is right on the banks of the Guadeloupe River so it is a very nice setting.

This is a popular place and that was evident by the crowd, but the staff got us seated quickly. This is a resturant set on the banks of the Gudalupe river and the view was beautiful from the outside cover patio. We loved the good home cooking and had good service even during the busy Labor Day weekend.

Great staff. Service with a smile that was sure! Went and had a middle cut steak. Melted in your mouth. Had a slice of pie for desert. Great stuff. Ask for a seat by the window at sunset. One of the best views of the river in town. So peaceful and quite. Very laid back place.
