On a two day trip to Saint John we ate dinner here each evening - superb and had excellent waitress service from Katy and Kirsten, even being introduced to Kirsten's Dad! Brilliant fresh food and portion sizes just right, the size we are used to in England! we ate our way along the New England Coast and Billy's in Saint... More

Delicious Caesar salad. My steak was done perfectly and came with excellent fries. Dessert was a decadent chocolate concoction whose name I don't know, but it was sure good! Some members of the group said their steaks were tough, but mine was fine. A dining companion who had salmon enjoyed it very much.

...you will love this place. Great service and knowledgeable staff make for a pleasant experience. The oysters (raw) were the best I'd ever had.

A very clean, tastefully decorated restaurant and fish market located in a historic center of downtown Saint John. A bit pricey. Excellent service from friendly staff and the best lobster mac and cheese! Exceptionally clean!

We went because a friend from Saint John highly recommended us this restaurant. The place didn't look pricy at all but each seafood entry was around $30. We ordered four different entries. They were good but not great. My clams were small from being over cooked and had sand in them. It's not worth the money we paid.

The Seafood restaurant is located in a narrow road in St John with no views on Harbour. Food quality far below average . Very expensive for what you get. No reason to try

We stopped by for dinner. The service isn't bad. They don't offer bread with your meals, and the portions on the lobster meals (main) were small, especially for the price we paid. We left still hungry!

Nice lunch at Billy's. I always recommend Billy's to guests from out of town who stay at my hotel, Chipman Hill Suites. The ambiance is really what they are looking for.....eating in a fish market within a farmer's type market....

The food was good but I don't feel like the portions that they give goes with the price you pay. It was very expensive and the portion was very small. They would need to have a look at this part of it, because when we visited Saint John and asked around for seafood restaurants, that was one comment we heard... More
