Billy's Roanoke Ratings and Reviews
I was in Roanoke to celebrate my son’s recent engagement and chose Billy’s to treat them to a nice dinner. There are quite a few other great places there to eat as well, but Billy’s pleasantly surpassed my expectations. We had a pleasant, experienced server. The wine list was superb. The appetizers, salads and entrees were delicious. I personally loved the prime rib. This is my new “favorite” place in Roanoke and look forward to dining there again soon!
Despite reserving a table, it was 15 minutes late- our request to have a joined table was not met-despite the fact that I called and visited and was told both times my request would be honored. Also, it was SUPER dark (much darker than I remember from our other many visits) and overall I really was not impressed this visit. I tell a lot of my friends about Billy's and we visit often, but this was not their best.
We booked this reservation prior to a show at the Mill Mountain theatre and thankfully had planned well in advance. We arrived on time for our reservation and were seated immediately at a great window-side table. Our server was very upbeat but obviously spread too thin. It took almost an hour before our entrees arrived (we hadn't ordered apps) and 25 minutes before a basket of bread appeared. The drinks were slow to come initially. When our food did arrive we had to clear our own dirty bread plates out of the way. Overall, it was an extremely long wait for an expensive meal that should have come with better service.
Both of our meals were not up to the excellence of the year before, when we also celebrated our wedding anniversary at Billy's. My guess is that the meals were left under a heat light too long or were otherwise delayed in being delivered to our table. They just seemed a bit overcooked. The shrimp scampi that I ate on 11.30/16 was perhaps the best scampi that I have ever had. The scampi on 11/30/17 was not the same - just average.
But we will be back.
Fantastic experience! We dined with a 1 year old and Caleb was AMAZING with him and with us. Loved the cocktail he recommended and the food was superb, especially the sweet bacon salad dressing and shrimp & grits. Only disappointment was the crab chowder had more corn than crab (couldn't taste anything but corn!) Experience started well when the host kindly accommodated us, stowing our stroller and seating us where our kiddo could see everything. Kuddos, we will be back next time through!
Went for wife’s birthday. Mentioned the reason in the comments and nothing was even said nor mentioned by any of the staff which I found surprising. Also got out at a table right in the walkway so I was constantly moving for people coming back and forth. Food was great...service was ok.
Our server was over the top! She anticipated our every need without being bothersome and made good menu suggestions. The ahi tuna and wontons was superb. The blue cheese wedge salad, although lacking in blue cheese flavor was still very delicious. The crab cakes were good, not great as anticipated and the rainbow trout was outstanding. They very willingly made substitutions and overall it was a great evening.
What a great place. From the moment entering the door, every employee was fantastic. Above average and very attentive. The menu options can please anyone. The ambience (back dining room) was warm and most pleasing as we could see the courtyard. Food was outstanding. By far, our fav go to from now to forever! WTG Billys! You're off the charts great
Wonderful dining spot. Great location and very professional and knowledgeable staff. Had a crab cake dinner entree and it was one of the best I have ever had. My wife had the scampi and thoroughly enjoyed her meal. We couldn’t have been more pleased.
We were only passing through Roanoke otherwise Billy’s would be on our best restaurant list. Classic great food , in a warm setting and everything is done to perfection.
Went here for a Friday night dinner after a busy week at work. Two in our party. Everything was excellent, from the hostess to the service to the food. I had the salmon, my companion had the mahi-mahi, and we were able to substitute for our sides. We also added salads. I recommend the green goddess dressing. Food was very good, and our server, Sarah, made sure our entire experience was wonderful. I highly recommend this place for dinner or for drinks, as the bartenders are top-notch as well.
The service was outstanding. You can tell the staff really believe in how to make a guest feel welcome. The prime rib was large and very tasty. However, I found the special Rockfish to be a bit bland. Even so, the sides were spectacular, as was the vanilla ice cream afterward. Overall, a very pleasant experience. I will return.
Two waiters tag-teamed our table and I was never quite sure who our server was. We were only a table of two so it was not because of the size of our table. We ordered Manhattans “up” but they were brought on the rocks. Waiter said he would fix it but all he did was remove the ice and pour into the proper glass; this was obvious because they were watered down from the ice.
Otherwise, the food and atmosphere were exceptional.
We had a small group of family visiting, and they wanted to see the downtown area and have dinner there. We have been to Billy's before and knew it would be a solid place to take our family. That being said, our family was over the the top with the food (Shrimp & Grits, bacon scallops, short rib, and lobster Alfredo) combined with the attention to detail of our server Greg that they insisted we come back the next day for lunch, which we did. Sarah was as accommodating as our prior server and our food was just as wonderful from the lunch menu. Thank you Billy's for letting our town shine.
We've been to Billy's many times. Since there are many good restaurants in the Roanoke area, that is, in itself, a recommendation. Once again, my wife's prime rib was excellent and she would rate it as the best in town. My salmon with risotto was cooked as I ordered & was quite good as well. Portions are large so we shared a well prepared cheesecake as dessert. Service was attentive, but not intrusive. Once more we were pleased with our choice of Billy's for a pre-theater meal.
We showed up for our reservation late and the staff was very accommodating - not even mentioning our lateness. When we needed to expand because of our reunion classmates pouring in - the staff at Billy's just kept on bringing tables. It was a great experience - in fact - we then moved from the table to the bar after we had finished eating. Great bar scene too.
We were traveling through Roanoke visiting my brother and went to Billy's for dinner. We were actually seated in the patio area which I would prefer because the dining room was very busy. Our server was very courteous and attentive to our needs. And the kitchen was quite slow in a way a meticulous chef would work. We were in no hurry and when the food arrived it was absolutely splendid. I would recommend the cowboy ribeye cooked medium rare and the lemon dessert cake was amazing. Will definitely return on our next visit to Roanoke!
First time at Billy's. I was very impressed. Food and drinks are a little pricey, so I definitely be only dining here on special occasions. I got the lobster alfredo and it was delicious and more than I could eat. My cocktail of choice for the evening was the pomegranate martini and it was yummy!!
