Our server was courteous and attentive. She was great! The food, however, was just okay. The smashed potatoes were overseasoned, as well as the pork chop glaze. Together, my taste buds were oversalted. The pb cheesecake was odd...not a creamy texture as expected for a cheesecake. And the pb flavor was strange, not really a pb flavor.

Waited nearly 10 minutes after being seated to be acknowledged by a server. No one came, so we left and walked to another restaurant. Saw others who were seated after us get greeted and served water. We were ignored.

It was my husband’s birthday, which coincides with Restaurant Week. He had the Prime Rib, Salad, and Lemoncello Cake, which they offered as a $40 special. Did he think it was a good value? Absolutely! A really nice meal, excellent waiter, just a nice time for both of us.

What a great experience!!! We visited BIlly's to try their Restaurant Week Menu. Our starters were Ahi Tuna Wontons (always a hit) and Beer and Soy Braised Pork Belly - delicious (can't imagine why I've never tried it before.) Our second courses were Grilled Mahi-Mahi with Pineapple Salsa and Risotto - (also delicious and very generous portion) and Shrimp and Grits with Grape Tomatoes and Habanero Cream Sauce (also delicious - and the spoon was a real necessity because the sauce was SO good.) Our desserts were Limoncello Cake with Mascarpone Frosting (so delicate and perfectly lemon) and Three Layer Triple Chocolate Cake (totally decadent!). Our server - Tracy - was perfect. Friendly, efficient and very engaging. Can't wait for our next visit.

Service was great from the start, all of the staff were pleasant and attentive. The food was amazing. The oysters for appetizer were the best. All the food was above expectations. This restaurant is by far one of the best in Roanoke, it surpasses other area restaurants in the downtown area by far (especially over rated Frankie Rowlands). I would chose Billy's over Frankie's any day. The food and service doesn't even compare.

Food was good except a complete misstep on the salmon and broccoli. I’ve ordered many times but the salmon was a very thin piece of fish and cold. The broccoli was mush.

Billy’s was great from the moment we walked into the door. The hostess was eager to greet us and the wait staff was great! They were prompt with taking orders and food delivery was fast. The chefs hummus was our appetizer and it was very good. You could tell it was fresh. The crab cakes and NY strip were what we got and they were phenomenal. The steak was tender and the crab cakes were full of flavor. I got some seasonal drinks and they were great as well. I highly recommend going to Billy’s to eat!

Whenever we visit Roanoke, we go to Billy’s. I love their jerk chicken dinner. During our recent visit, the meal was delicious, but service was lacking. I’m trying to be patient, especially during the pandemic. However, we asked for additional dinner rolls before our meal came out, and we never got them. We even asked a second time! A food runner brought our entrees out. Our server never came over to see how our meals were, until we were almost finished. I was then finally able to ask for an iced tea refill. When our server cleared our plates, I think it took him another ten minutes to return with our bill. Then we waited again for him to pick it up. Go for the delicious food, but pack your patience.

The service from Amanada was great! The food was great as well but for me the filet was a bit too salty. The seasonal drinks were terrific as well.

The food and service were outstanding. The event was the 25th birthday for our daughter who had never been to Billy's and she was very pleased with the pic. The staff and mangers each greeted us at our table and made the night even more special. The dinner was outstanding the meal was just as ordered and the deserts were great as well. I always highly recommend Billy's to anyone for a special night out in Roanoke.

For the money and tip that we spent the ribeye steak was nothing but fat. We should’ve sent it back. And your appetizers leave a lot to be desired
