“Easter brunch”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

Made a reservation here for Easter brunch after Hotel Roanoke couldn't accommodate us and no regrets!
Day of reservation we called and asked for an earlier time which they graciously accommodated.
We were seated in the wonderful courtyard (one of the best kept secrets in downtown Roanoke). The weather was perfect and the firepit was lit for ambiance.
We had our own bartender outside which provided prompt service.
Waitress was professional and speedy.
The brunch buffet was quite a spread. We enjoyed absolutely all of it, especially the prime rib carving station, crab cakes, jumbo shrimp cocktail, and huge selection of desserts.
Quite a lot cheaper than Hotel Roanoke's holiday brunch, this was better food with different/better ambiance.
Give it a try and you won't be disappointed. We look forward to the next holiday brunch.

“Nice Downtown Experience”
Reviewed April 5, 2014 via mobile

I brought my wife to Billy's for her Birthday and enjoyed a nice lunch with good professional service. We both ordered the strawberry salad, which was lacking in strawberries, but good. Especially the dressing!!! I added a crab cake, which I am a huge critical fan of, and I have to say it was awesome!!!!!!!! The atmosphere is a little dated, but overall, a nice downtown experience!! We will return for Dinner!!!!

“Second visit as great as the first!”
Reviewed March 24, 2014 via mobile

If you come to Roanoke, then one stop needs to be Billy's. The servers are first class! The food...hmmmm...will make you wonder why you ever bothered to cook for yourself! The black bean burger had little to no filler, they offer a variety of sides without saying that will be extra, so I had asparagus instead of fries! And, I NEVER EVER order dessert, but my attendant suggested I might like the lightness of the lemon cake, so I just had to try it. WOW! Thanks to Tiffany for that great suggestion. And by the way, Tiffany not only has class, but she makes you feel at home with her smile!

“Dinner with friends”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

I had the grilled Mahi Mahi and my date had the Prime Rib. He had to send it back because it was almost well done and then when he got a new one, it still wasn't cooked appropriately. The two of our dinner was over $100 with tip. However, we did have 2 mixed drinks too but in my opinion for the quality of the food, the cost was too expensive. Doubt that I will hurry back for dinner. Will possibly return for drinks.
