Diner Reviews
  • "Our group of 4 enjoyed our dinner experience. Food was very good but pricey. Our server Sarah D was outstanding. One of the bartenders struggled with what a cold gin martini meant. The martini had a strong after taste the first time. Another bartender fixed our second try and got it cold but still a strong after taste that should not have been there. I suspect the shaker was not adequately rinsed between drink orders or vermouth was added when we specifically asked for no vermouth. Very noisy in the front dining area. If you want more quiet, ask for a table in the back area."

  • "The food was excellent and the choices all sounded amazing. The waitress was extremely friendly and engaging but it took us just about an hour to get our bread and appetizer."

  • "Recently went to dinner with a party of 7 on a Friday. Excellent service and very good cuisine at a price that is reasonable for what you get. Many of us had fish entrees and the fish was extremely fresh. Good wine list, but too expensive. Fairly good choice of tap beers at a more reasonable price."

  • "The food was alright but the service was great. They have a good selection of desserts. The chocolate torte had a good presentation and it was also delicious. Their prime rib is so big that you would need a To Go box."

  • "This place is awesome. Great food. Great service. Great people watching. It has it all"
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "The food was very good but lacked some creativity in presentation. The service was good but it was somewhat slow for a restaurant that was less than packed. The dessert was the only disappointment in the evening. The cheesecake was tiny and lacked flavor. The atmosphere was very nice in appearance but the noise level was loud for a dinning experience."

  • "Pleasant atmosphere and comfortable ambiance plus great service. The food was good but only had salads this time."

  • "Made reservations on line on the day my wife and I decided to go down town to eat. We got there and our choice of seating was no what we requested. The hostess listened to our concerns and was able to get us what we wanted. Great evening from all the staff and meal was great too."

  • "My family went to Billy's for Father's Day Brunch. It was our first time eating here. Ashley, our waitress was awesome. Very nice and informative about the menu. It did seem like the food took a little longer than expected, as the restaurant didn't seem that busy at the time. However, the food was delicious and I'd love to go back!"

  • "The food is excellent! The crab cakes and lobster Alfredo were incredible, and we split a white chocolate raspberry cheesecake--home made and delectable. Staff was attentive, helpful, and friendly. Best food we've had in Roanoke in some time."

  • "Our last-minute reservation change was handled graciously and without issue. At a noontime working lunch, the restaurant was packed and service, as a result, was a bit leisurely, but no one in our party of five complained. Salads, wraps and sandwiches were exceptional as always, although one of us thought the chicken wrap was a little dry. A request for additional chipotle mayo was fulfilled promptly. Food at Billy's is consistently first rate and service is, more times than not, very good. You can't go wrong with this choice at lunch or dinner!"
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "We were hoping for a great dining experience, but our visit feel short of that. Billie's is more of a bar than a good food place. Them drinks were weak, the food was mediocre and the service was poor, plus they weren't busy. Enough said."

  • "The hostess and waiter went out of their way to ensure we have a wonderful time, celebrating my wife's birthday. The food was phenomenol. Highly recommend for any special, intimate occassion or having a great meal."

  • "My crab cake meal was excellent. My husband's salad was just what he likes and the bread was wonderful. He enjoyed his Monk fish special except for a small portion where it seemed a membrane or something should have been removed before cooking. Our waiter helped me select the best of two glasses of wine - clearly understanding his offerings. "

  • "Billy's is one of those places you can rely on for a consistently good meal time after time. The food is very good, the service refreshingly attentive, and the ambiance casual, but not in a sports-bar sense. It's an upscale crowd, but never stuffy. Our party ordered lamb chops and crab cakes, both cooked to perfection. Portion sizes were generous and food quality top-notch, but we note the quantity of food one receives varies widely from visit to visit. On this occasion my crab cakes were small, but garnished with a huge mound of cheddar potatoes. On a previous visit it was just the opposite. No complaint, just an observation. Billy's is always a sure bet for a great dinner experience!"

    Dined on 5/29/2014
  • "Our party of three ordered crab cakes, filet mignon, and a made-to-order hamburger, and all were the best example of each we have enjoyed in quite sometime, and certainly in Roanoke. Our server, Alex, was personable, knowledgeable, and gave good advice to us and those around us. On a warm and still Sunday evening, we chose to eat on the patio, which was our first al fresco experience at Billy's. This area is nicely arranged and beautifully furnished, but close quarters make it a better venue for drinks than relaxed dinner conversation. That being said, our food and service were top notch and, gratefully, there was not an ounce of pretention on display anywhere."

  • "Our server Lauren was fantastic! She recommended a perfect wine and told us about the specials. Ended up with the soft crab, which was amazing! ( I am not a seafood person) Will visit Billy's again and will ask for Our server Lauren was fantastic!"

  • "Skeptical at first due to it being very loud, small bar, and general ambience not very cozy. The food was AMAZING. The service was not. However, it was Mothers Day so I give them a pass for that one. Would go back again next time I am in town."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "I took my mother there hoping for a nice Mothers Day meal. The buffet was very poorly stocked, looked like a hers of bulls ran through it! I was HIGHLY embarrassed for her special Mother's Day treat. Would not recommend! "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "My family took me to Billy's for Mother's Day Brunch and I have to say I couldn't have been more pleased. The food selection was perfect for a buffet. They offered a nice selection of breakfast and lunch items without being overwhelming. The portions were on the small side, which I prefer when I'm eating a buffet because it offers me the chance to sample everything. After all, you can always go back for your favorites, which, believe me, I did. There was plenty of "light" choices, such as smoked salmon, shrimp cocktail, fresh fruit and a delicious spinach and cranberry salad. For the carnivores, the meat station had very moist pork roast and a delicious prime rib. I could go on, but I think I've relayed the food was good! "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Would only go here on special occasions with my budget, but good food and just as good service as anywhere else. Crab Cakes were cooked beautifully and piping hot. My girlfriend order the Lobster Alfredo which was very filling and also good. We had the Lemicello Cake for desert which was so light and fluffy, if I wasn't so full I would've got another one!"

  • "Billy's is in the center of downtown, walkable from The Hotel Roanoke. The menu is solid, the Caesar salad almost as good as the one I make at home (haven't found a better one yet). Loved the mussels appetizer swimming in an aromatic sauce. Trout Almondine with smashed garlic potatoes was delicious. Frank Sinatra in the background and attentive but not overbearing service. A pleasant dinner. "

  • "We were first-time guests and could not have enjoyed the dinner more than we did! The ambiance, service, menu variety and food were all excellent! Out window-table overlooking the vibrant downtown scene where a jazz band was playing enhanced our appreciation of Roanoke's culture (we are out-of-towners). From the bacon-wrapped scallops to the steak, hamburger and lobster wrap, the food was outstanding. Billy's Roanoke is outstanding!"

  • "This is the second year we have enjoyed the Easter Buffet. I come from Richmond and meet my grandson who is attending Va Tech. We think it is the best Easter Buffet ever. Hope to be there again next year or hopefully before. The service was exceptional and the food was delicious. Especially like the variety of salads. T "

Prime Rib is a favorite. It's cooked just right. My wife got a pasta dish and it was yummy. We recommend Billy's to friends and family all the time. "

  • "Very nice atmosphere. Server was attentive and interested in providing a great experience. There was enough background noise that one could speak at normal conversation levels without neighboring tables hearing details from our exchange, however not so loud as to require we speak at elevated levels. While this may seem trivial to some, ambient sound levels have a significant impact on the tone and cadence of the visit. The sangria was exceptional!"

  • "I've never been to a "fancy" restaurant before, however, the food was amazing. We tried the crab cake and it was really good, but burnt a whole in my wallet. I would have wished that they went a little farther with the 20's theme. Our waiter was very attentive and made sure everything was good. The manager (or boss, someone like that) also was walking about asking people if their food was good."
