We’re originally from Milwaukee where Greek run family restaurants are a staple on the dining map. Billy Gene’s sits on the river where you can watch the sun set from inside or out on the porch and you’ll get homey, well prepared food that’s tasty and attractively priced. The wait staff were attentive without being overly so. A house made... More

If I was a local I'd eat here all the time! Delicious food & dessert! Beautiful view of the river! Such a relaxing, excellent dinner! Our waitress was the sweetest gal, Jen. Excellent service & so friendly. We loved this place!

We tried this restaurant because of the previous reviews. We were seated immediately; sat next to the deck at sunset...gorgeous view! The liver & onions was very tasty.

The best thing about this place was the view and everything else was just average and nothing special. The complimentary bread was very dry and seemed almost stale. The meal was ok, nothing to brag about, it filled our hungry tummies but we probably wouldn't go back and definitely wouldn't be bringing friends. The service was equally average, not bad... More

My wife and I went to dinner and had a very good meal. I had a steak and my wife had a grilled chicken salad. We had very good service and seems to be a very popular place for the locals we would highly recommend this restaurant.

Had a recent business lunch at Billy Genes. The restaurant specializes in Hill Country cuisine. The dishes we had were distinctive, well prepared and delicious. The atmosphere is relaxing and the view of the river is great. Value for money was in line. I will certainly be back!

Met my cousin here for a visit over dinner. Had read the great reviews on it but neither of us had ever dined there. When we arrived at 7:00 on a Friday night, the place was very busy. There were quite a few people waiting to be seated, but it wasn't long before we were seated. Too bad it was... More

Billy Gene's is a great home cooking place. Menu is widely varied. Our meals were prepared as ordered, delivered hot, and served by a fine server. Will visit when in town.

The food is very good with something for everyone. I personally like the chicken friend chicken, but friends have tried other items and have always been happy with the meal. Good service and fair prices.

When you're hungry for home-style cooking, Billy Gene's is where you want to go. A varied menu will offer whatever you're hungry for--from a chicken-fried steak, to a healthy salad, to a Mexican food platter, or a juicy cheeseburger, and ending with cobbler and coffee. This is where the locals go and this is where you want to be! The... More
