We chose Billy's based on Tripadvisor reviews and referrals from around the city. Nice atmosphere and roomy seating, small enough to feel personal and window views of the park. We ordered 1.5 lb lobster dinners for our last dinner out in Saint John. $35 each. beverages extra. The sides were a broccoli, carrot, green been medley and the most delicious... More

I wished there was more selection that included local fish and/or mussels . I ordered lobster from the "tank". It was OK, but a little overcooked, as the tail was "chewy". My husband had fish and chips - large portion, and good quality. The lobster only had 1 side dish choice and no bread came with our meal. Everything was... More

This week we are having a party at our new house so we decided to get some shrimp for our guests. I called down to Billy's and checked to see when he would be in. The service was great from the first phone call to how Billy personally took charge to make sure we got everything just right. On Saturday... More

It was quiet at Billy's when we arrived without reservations about 6PM, but the place filled up soon after. Good food and great service with a fish market attached and on the outside corner of the larger indoor marketplace. We enjoyed our drinks and salmon at a nice table. A good place to go!

This morning I went into Billy's Seafood Fish Market and an older gentlemen was behind the counter. You would think I would have been waited immediately as there were no other customers in the market. However the gentlemen stood behind the counter and talked on the phone for 5 minutes while I stood there. I left to make my purchase... More

Our Concierge at Holiday recommended this place to us and we cheerfully went, as his recommendation from the previous night exactly suited our needs at the time. The decor is pleasant but not distracting,with the occasional bit of humour present. Our waitress was good, and the beer menu was a conversation piece for the gentlemen. My son ordered the seasonal... More

We selected this restaurant based on the recommendation of the Visitor Center. We were seated promptly. The server was knowledgable regarding the menu and how it could be adapted to meet our allergies. It turns out the seafood chowder is made fresh to meet each guests needs. It was fresh, flavorful and a great start to our meal. We both... More
