Both the food quality and the staff friendliness were excellent. Wide variety of offerings. Wonderful setting on the Guadaloupe River. Both inside and outside dining.

Went with our church group. They do not take reservations on Sundays. So its like the wait and service is slow. Food was great. Chicken pot pie soup tasted real good. Chicken fried chicken was excellent.

I had a rib eye that was perfectly cooked. An excellent piece of beef. The salad could have used a few croutons. I had a glass of wine with dinner and watched the ducks on the river. It is a very peaceful place to relax with good food and wine. I've eaten here before and will return when I pass... More

I had been wanting to try Billy Gene's for awhile now. We travel to Kerrville about once a year. The restaurant is clean and has a nice view of the river.

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.
