We've been to Billy Joe's many times for dinner alone and with groups and always had a positive experience. My son always loved going with us before moving away. He and his fiance were in town for a few days this past weekend and we decided to threw a Cocktail Party there for 70+ people so they could meet my... More

A group of us had dinner here for the first time before heading home. Nice place with a fun rustic look. A few of us had the Ribs and felt it was ok. We felt a better sauce would have made the ribs better compared to other Rib places we have eaten at. The calamari was excellent. Service was very... More

Place is huge. Beautiful location. Great food! I had the pork sliders and burger sliders I asked to split the choice and they delivered. Beautiful fall day lunch. Great friendly staff.

This is one of the better BBQ joints in the area. Nice smokey tastes to most meats, good service and a full service bar

We had plates of babyback and beef ribs that were falling off the bone and perfect. The view sitting on the Hudson is also great. Side of beans, rings, fries and coleslaw were also great! The place is on the other side of the railroad tracks, and you go under the tracks to get to it. Turn right and go... More

We were attending a weekend meeting in the area. We were told to meet at Billy Joe's at 5 PM on Thursday, as we were coming in from out-of-town. We were familiar with the place as we had eaten there the last time we were in the area. Food is good and plentiful. I had the Monster Ribs and my... More

They have all the games on great atmosphere but we literally could not get served. Our part of 4 waited half a football game and still no menu. We purchased our drinks on our own by going up to the bar. Terrible service

Received swift service on a very busy homecoming weekend. Got there just in time before the dinner rush, around 4:30. When we left the waiting was 1 1/2 hours. Big portions of food but could be more flavorful. Refills on all drinks. Noisy and all kinds of people. Lots of motorcycle groups on day we were there. The bar area... More
