We had reservations last week for graduation weekend at Tech. We were surprised when the restaurant wasn't busy, for such a crowded weekend. Now we know why. The wait was incredibly long after being seated to get our food. After 45 minutes we had to...More

Do not like Menu, Over Priced. Menu is very limited and mostly seafood. Steaks very pricy and not that good.

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
