Very good.

We used to be regular weekly patrons but this latest visit comes a year since my last Billy Gene's experience. This was a working lunch with country officials so we mixed dining with much discussion. Even so the service was good for the most part. The food was quickly served and from what I... read more

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!

The view is amazing. Too bad I can't say the same for the food. The selection is varied, but the quality is OK. Tried to order the trout and was told they weren't serving it anymore because it was too "fishy" tasting. I ended up with the grilled shrimp. It was more like a flavorless boiled shrimp. My husband had... More

Great view of the river from inside and out. Food was hot and plentiful. Monsterous fried shrimp. Flat iron steak was good. Great wait staff.

We had about a 10 minute wait on Memorial Day at 5 pm. Dinner was wonderful. I had salmon, seasoned rice, and green beans. We had fried zucchini for appetizer and cherry cobbler for dessert. Dinner was fabulous and I would highly recommend!

We visited this restaurant last night on the spur of the moment. There were 10 of us and we had to wait a while and were seated in a large room in the back. Most everyone ordered Chicken Fried Steaks or Chicken Fried Chicken. Both were HUGE and they raved about how good they were. The sides they picked varied... More
