For starters we had the Yellowtail & Tuna sashimi it was fresh & quality you would find in a city. Followed that with probably about a 10oz filet that was cooked and seasoned nicely. Our friends split the crab cake entree which they said was...More

Stopped here for dinner on our way to Canada from Florida. We were late having dinner and the outside looked OK. Inside atmosphere was strange with all high top tables except one, or you could sit at the bar. Entrees were $30 so we had...More

First time trying Poor Billy's. Went early on a Friday night and the place was less than half full. Liked the dark interior and low lighting. All the tables and seats are like high bar stools with backs. We really enjoyed our appetizer and sushi....More

One of the more surprisning discoveries was that a restaurant that does not plan its flow correctly, can run out of an entire list of items! Like deserts! But service was great and food was good.

We have been visiting Blacksburg since 2002 and have enjoyed many meals at Poor Billy's. This visit however was far less than enjoyable. But first, my sympathies to the two young ladies trying to wait on all the tables and also serve as bartenders. They...More

Wife and I stopped in for dinner. It started badly and only got worse. There was almost no heat, so cold that my wife had to keep her coat on the entire meal. The service was sluggish to nearly nonexistent. My entree, filet mignon, was...More

Over the past 10 years, we have been regular customers and gotten to know many of the wait staff and bartenders. We considered them good friends. The service is typically fast unless it's a game day at VT. Cocktails are outstanding; ample and potent. My...More
