“Like a mini-vacation in Roanoke!”
Reviewed July 14, 2014

We ate at Billy's last night and felt like we left Roanoke for a mini-vacation. The ambiance is wonderful, like being in a 1940's Miami hotel--definitely check out the courtyard. The food was awesome; I had the crab cakes and my husband had the mahi, both were extraordinary. The service was great--Annabel was very responsive and always had a smile. This was quite unexpected, as we live in Roanoke, but it is now one of my favorite restaurants in Roanoke.

“Great ambience and history”
Reviewed July 5, 2014 via mobile

We ate here as part of the Roanoke food tour. We had shrimp and grits as well as a sampling of the beer at Devils backbone, a Vienna lager. These were the only grits I've ever enjoyed, though they could have been just a little bit warmer.

“Terrible Service”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

Excited to finally dine at Billy's we stopped in around 4:00 on a Saturday afternoon and was promptly seated at a good table. However, 30 minutes later we had still not seen a waiter. We were seated within site of the front desk but could not get anyone's attention. Upon exiting disgusted with the lack of service, we were promptly thanked and asked to come back soon.

“Historic Restaurant”
Reviewed June 29, 2014

Take a walk through historic downtown and enjoy the open market, then top it off with lunch or dinner at a very nice eatery. The service exceeded expectations and the food was impeccable. Priced above average, but worth the extra expense. The restaurant has wrap around windows which allows one to view the city lights. You have a great choice here.
