Always Great Food

Love this restaurant and the owner, He is always really friendly and his staff as well. This is a restaurant I visit each time I go to Saint John and take clients for lunch. Thank you Billy for the great experience every time.

I came strictly for the oysters; they had three varieties that I had along with the ice, dulse and sparkling berry mignonette.

We wanted to have lobster for our anniversary and a local told us that Billy's was the best place. He did not lie. Quaint little restaurant that is also a seafood market in the City Market. Our...

Been twice for lunch and the lobster roll was amazing both time. Splurged and had the large one and it is a great meal. Wanted more and more. Awesome homemade fries. Always a lunch special of some sort. Great atmosphere and Billy is right there behind the counter (place serves as a seafood store as well). I highly recommend!

I have been meaning to check out this place for a while and finally had the opportunity to a few weeks ago. The lobster was to die for!!! Well done! Service was good as well. Overall it was a little pricey, but if you want fresh seafood its worth it.

We were here for chop chop in nov 2015. The appetizer of mussels was good. I didn't care for the empty beer can on the plate. The main course was a disgusting lobster tail which was mushy and tiny. The bologna rice balls were not good. Dessert was a tasteless pics of fried dough. Our server took out drink order... More
