I really miss the old Billies, when Billie Phillips owned it. I guess what I really miss is snorting coke off the bar with Billie, and doing shooters of bourbon until we couldn't form sentences. Ah, those were the days!

Come here twice and the staff treat you like you've been living there 20 years, always take care of their customers. Forget your jacket the door man will remind you, forget your wallet, it and all it's contents will be waiting for you when you remember where you left it. Crowd is affable, bartenders are the best around, there is... More

My husband and I had a great meal not to mention the brothers who waited on us with smiles and were happy to greet us. The pub/restaurant is charmingly old style. I would encourage others to visit Billie's 1890and have fun.

This bar and pub has been in Port Jefferson forever. Big bar and small dining room in back. Great chicken wings, especially at happy hour. Only .15 cents each. Good burgers, sandwiches and some good dinners. I love this place!

Although I live in the area, it had been quite some time since I went to Billie's. However, I will be making it a regular stop from now on. We went on a Friday evening and it was happy hour (half price drinks). The bartenders are very friendly and attentive. The place got crowded the later in the evening but... More

We had an enjoyable time here. The food is very reasonably priced and is very good. If you like prime rib, go here for a fantastic deal and a tender cut of beef cooked perfectly! The burgers and sandwiches we ordered were also done well! 👍🏼 the wait staff was outstanding. Highly recommended!

I heard a few of my heavy drinking friends tell me how great this place was. Warning never listen to friends who drink too much. For some reason food tastes better when your in your cups..As we sat down a group of female cyclist entered and became very noisy at the bat which filtered over toward yelling. I found myself...

We had not been to Tara's with its specials for years. We were surprised that nothing on the menu appealed. Off we went to downtown Port Jeff. There we rediscovered Billie's 1890. The menu is varied and caterers to all. Those who want an American version of tapas will be pleased with the appetizers. For those who want a meal,... More
