I came to Billy's for a late evening dinner on a cold evening in St. John. I was staying the night at the Chipman Hill Suites located in Uptown and the manager suggested the restaurant to me when I asked for a good local place within walking distance. Billy's is one of those restaurants that makes you smile as soon... More

I wold give Billy's Seafood a 4.5 if possible . The seafood is excellent and the menu choices are many .This is what one would expect in restaurant that is also a seafood market. The restaurant is located adjacent to the famous St. John Market. Service was good but not what expected from a higher end restaurant. We were not... More

This restaurant is one of my new favourites. The restaurant is located at the head of the City Market and has an amazing atmosphere to sit and enjoy a meal. The food is outstanding, as a fish market in addition to a restaurant they really know a good product. Not to take away from the amazing chef that takes the... More

I can't understand why Billy's is not listed as one of the top restaurants in Saint John. I always stay at the Delta and walk up to Market Square (worth a visit) and then go into Billy's for supper. Emily was my sever, friendly and good with recommendations. 6 oysters with a Jost Chablis , which I only took because... More

The food is above average but the service is poor. Pretty standard fare if one prefers fried options. Prices on the whole are on the higher end of the spectrum. The chef has a hard time trying to do steak right, would suggest one stick to seafood.

I grew up on the east coast of Canada and although I now live in Toronto, I return to the coast often to visit family and eat seafood! We found Billy's on Yelp as we were driving past Saint John and decided to stop. The staff were incredibly friendly (as only the east coast can be!). They had an oyster... More

I stopped at Billy's Seafood Co. for lunch. It is off season, so the restaurant was not crowded. I had the seafood stew on rice. It was very good with a generous helping of mussels, clams, and fish and a bit of shrimp and scallop. Nicely seasoned and very satisfying. The bathroom is down a steep flight of stairs but... More

Three of us went out for dinner. The restaurant become very busy after we started our dinner. The waitress was very pleasant but the service was poor - I think that she was run off her feet! I had the halibut and so did one of my friends - the dish was very good but the halibut was charred on... More

Located at the entrance to the famous St. John Marketplace, Billy's was highly recommended to us by a local St. John lifelong resident. There were four of us out for an evening walk in this historic city, perfect weather on this beautiful spring evening. The decor is eclectic and there is an interesting atmosphere...Billy's has a lively menu...very interesting and... More
