Excellent in every way possible.
They honored my request for the quietest table, and recognized a birthday in our family group. We had 4 different entrees, all excellent! Really great restaurant.

The service we received was great. We enjoyed the overall experience, the food was decent. The ahi tuna wonton appetizer was really good as was the salmon entree. The NY strip was ok, although a little dry. Cooked well, just a little dry and left a little to be desired for a rather expensive steak. The overall experience was good, just a little pricey which was known before going.

Food was pretty good and reasonably priced. Found some shells in my lobster Alfredo that’s the only reason I’m giving 4 instead of 5 stars.

Date night for my husband & I. The food was spectacular. The waiter was one of the best we’ve ever had anywhere, he allowed us to sample the soup of the day & even picked a drink out for me by asking what I liked and made it himself (it was also amazing). We will definitely be returning again.

This was my first time to Billys. The food was fairly good, but I thought it was expensive for what it was. The server was slightly pushy trying to get us to add things we didn't want to our meal, but overall it was a good experience and I'd definitely go back for a nice occasion, not an everyday sort of restaurant.

We went for a Birthday and the food, service and what we ordered off the menu was very very good. It was Resturant Week for Roanoke but the menu had quite a variety of selections. I got Prime Rib and wife got fish. Appetizers were very good. Didn't like the Aui Tuna Wontons though. Have eat better.

Our experience was great as well as our waiter. Sometimes let your drink - water get empty and awhile to refill but all in all our experience was outstanding.

The only complaint we had was when we were to be seated it was a table for 2 but one of the chairs was back to back with a table of about 10 people. If you had tried to get up you would have definitely bumped into the chair behind you. We did ask for a different table and we did get seated elsewhere which was very good.

We would go back again.

Great dinner as part of Roanoke Restaurant Week. Highly recommend the crab cake appetizer as well as the molten lava cake dessert. The staff was very friendly and attentive. The restaurant was very crowded and busy but we were able to enjoy the atmosphere and talk freely with our friends while viewing the Market area activity. I especially appreciated the call I received when I got home that they had found my bracelet under the table (clasp broke).

I made reservations Saturday morning with Ooen Table for dinner at 5:45om. When we got to the restaurant they no record of our reservation. I fortunately had the email of my confirmation which I showed to a very nice lady who said she would get us a table. She gave us a free appetizer and dessert.for my boyfriend who was celebrating a big birthday. The service was excellent but I will hesitate to use Ooen Table agsin.

Food was good, enjoy going to Billy's but the last two times I have made reservations. Our table has been located beside a large party. 10 or more people. For a table of two it gets so loud that you can't have a conversion with the person you are with, and this time the tables were being set up after we got seated. That was fun, (not).

Initially seated at a small table for 2 facing a wall when multiple tables were open. Asked to be moved and request was granted. Waitress was very friendly and knew the menu. Recommend the Bourberry cocktail-small but tasty. Filet Mignon was cooked to order and tender but not extraordinary. Asparagus was undercooked and tough. Smashed potatoes were delicious. Overall felt the cost was not consistent with the pricing.

I had the lobster mac & cheese. It was delish! My co-workers had burgers and they looked divine. The dessert was great too.

Gabby was our server, she was friendly, knowledgeable and professional.

It was a wonderful experience and would encourage you to try it. Lunch will run about $12- $16 per entrée but it is well worth it!

Our server (Richard) was absolutely wonderful. He was more than upto the task to answer questions about the dishes from my brother in law (a professional chef). The food was super and portion size just right.
Loved the atmosphere.

While the majority of the meal was as described and good flavor. The Monray Chicken tasted as though it was soaked in salt. Too strong salt taste to eat.

I had dinner last night with my wife and have to say that I am not surprised by our experience. Always a pleasure to dine here. The service is always excellent. The food was spectacular. The management team, bar tenders and wait staff are always attentive and courteous. The steak was cooked to perfection and tender . The crab cakes were spot on. This is why I will continue to make this my go to spot. Great job and kudos to the Billy's team.

We had another enjoyable meal at Billy's. It's our favorite restaurant when staying in Roanoke. Their jerk chicken is very flavorful, but not too spicy. The strawberry salad was delicious, too. Be sure to make a reservation. We arrived early for ours. The only table available was a high top in the bar area. We opted for that and the bartender took very good care of us. It is a little noisy when the restaurant is full but that's to be expected. We can't wait to return!
