Great place for dinner in Saint John

This restaurant was recommended to us by our hosts at the B&B we stayed at. I had the Seafood Chowder which had chunks of Lobster, Mussels, Jumbo Shrimp, bacon and white fish. It was very tasty. My wife had the Haddock which was roasted with crab, lobster, and white cheddar curd on fries.

Restaurant area is small but the service is great and the chowder is amazing. Ask for fresh made biscuits to go with it. Billy's fish market has seafood caught that day. we were lucky enough to get halibut caught that morning. Prices are a bit high but definitely worth it. Parking for the farmers market where it is located is... More

The desk clerk at our hotel recommended Billy's and we are so glad she did.It was a bit of a drive from our hotel, but worth it. The lobster roll ($30) was the best I've ever had. My husband tried the haddock with lobster & crab. He's not a huge fan of cheese or "fancy" dishes, but he loved this.

My sister and I ate here a few days ago. We were staying in St. John and asked the hotel for some restaurant recommendations and Billy's was one of them. We were not disappointed in the least. It's a smallest restaurant which is nice because it's at least quiet enough to carry on a conversation with the person sitting across... More

We went there last week and loved all the food and staff were very helpful. I had the scallops as app and lobster roll for dinner. 5 out of 5 for my meal and would definitely tell all my friends to eat there when in Saint John

At the top of the MARKET ST entrance is a small farmers market. You can pick up some local MAPLE hard candy or some fine arts & Crafts from a local vendor. Outside the entrance on the right is a recommended seafood restaurant called BILLY’s SEAFOOD. Inside are a few tables with some excellent seafood dishes for lunch. Prices vary... More

I would have given five stars but for the sow kitchen. It was Sunday night and perhAps they thought they would be slow, but they served meals to one table at a... More

The hotel staff recommended this restaurant to us and we were not disappointed at all. It began with a wonderful, friendly waitress who had an outstanding personality. She was very helpful with suggestions/recommendations. Our food was delicious and we enjoyed every morsel!! I had the Naked Lobster and my husband had the Roasted Haddock. Both were superb. Desserts were delicious... More

Came along at an odd hour, but found the staff welcoming, forthcoming, friendly and flexible. They met my wishes for a take-away lunch of a Crab & Avocado Wrap which was quite delicious and a packet of smoked salmon, that was carefully packed in ice for me by the cheerful seafood counter guy. Wish I'd had the time and opportunity... More

Awesome seafood, and perhaps the best fresh salmon I've ever had. Wonderfully prepared and seasoned, and served with the best potato side dish I've ever eaten. Yukon Gold scalloped potatoes stacked up (like the potato was put back together) that is scrumptious. A wonderful meal, and the wine pairings were perfect. Service was average, and I sense it was because... More
