Billy Joes offers some decent food in a fun atmosphere. Nestled right on the Hudson river, they often have pretty good live music, the ribs and chicken aren't bad and the corn bread and mac and cheese sides are great! If you are in the area, it is worth a stop.

Stopped here on a Wednesday afternoon with my husband...all we can say is WOW! From the decor to the menu to the fast and curteous service we were impressed! The smoked meat combo was delicious! We came hungry, but we were no match for the serving we got and ended up taking home leftovers. We were there on a cold,... More

Good crowd of all ages. Bartenders very attentive despite crowd. Food fair wait staff disorganized. 8 people in our party we were served meals at different times. Half of us were close to finished when others were just receiving their meals.

Ambiance is very relaxed - no tablecloths on the tables and lots of napkins.The food is good old fashioned barbeque. And the price is better, very reasonable for dinner.

A Family and Friends Welcome type of venue. Cool southern themed decor. The food is well priced and fairly descent. Drinks were slightly overpriced for my liking and table service was a little slow but everyone was very friendly and welcoming. All in all we had a fun night out and I would go here again if I ever return... More

Bill Joe's is a great place to meet friends in a nice setting. It sits on the Hudson River waterfront and is a large restaurant with inside and outside bars. We went for a birthday dinner and had an ok meal. The BBQ Pork and Brisket were good, but my wife's salmon was only so-so. We were a little disappointed... More

The place is nice good crowd and omay food and drinks.Just be warned, the bouncers in this place tend to be a little too aggressive and unprofessional.

We've been to Billy Joe's many times for dinner alone and with groups and always had a positive experience. My son always loved going with us before moving away. He and his fiance were in town for a few days this past weekend and we decided to threw a Cocktail Party there for 70+ people so they could meet my... More

A group of us had dinner here for the first time before heading home. Nice place with a fun rustic look. A few of us had the Ribs and felt it was ok. We felt a better sauce would have made the ribs better compared to other Rib places we have eaten at. The calamari was excellent. Service was very... More
