Prices were Justified by Food and Service....

I had done some prior research about the price complaints, but undaunted, we had dinner at Billy's this evening. My companion and I ordered clam chowders, the oysters Rockefeller, sautéed shrimp, and grouper with butter and lemon. The food was quite satisfactory- as were the wines. Our waiter... read more

Yes, we went back for more of course! Billy's has really good seafood, lobster, crabs leg or catch of the day. Service was friendly as always. Located conveniently on A1A in Hollywood a block from the beach. Parking may be difficult but we were lucky this time. We had the Lobster Tail which was really nice along with some Crawfish... More

We went to Billy's on a recommendation but yikes! We saw the waiter when we order and not again. REALLY? Our appetizer was $33.95 and beers at nearly $7 for bottles that I can walk 1/2 a block and get for $3. I've had WAY fresher seafood this trip so keep on going!

Average at best. Nice atmosphere but the food lacked flavor. Very pricey for bland food. The waiter brought the baked potatoe we ordered, all ala carte, and it was so hard he couldn't cut through it but left it anyway, we ended up sending it back.

We heard about this place from friends who rode the water taxi and thought we would give it a try. It is overpriced and the food is mediocre. The service is poor. The waiter never refilled our water glasses and didn't come back to check on our meals until we were finished. You have to pay for valet parking and... More

Really good sea food, lobster, crabs leg or catch of the day. Service was friendy if somewhat detached. Convient location on A1A in Hollywood a block from the beach. Parking may be difficult. Once inside pick a intercostal view to complete the seafood experience.

Never, ever, ever again will I set foot in this hovel. From the lack of parking to the ice cold $87 dollar surf and turf dinner, this restaurant is the worst seafood restaurant in Florida. South Florida has plenty of great seafood restaurants to choose from. This is not one of them. I took my son there for his 17th... More

This was our first time trying Billy's Stone Crab. We will definitely re-visit!! The food was delicious and the portions were huge! Peter our waiter was outstanding and provided excellent service! He made some great recommendations on the menu. Everything we ordered from appetizers to pasta and seafood entrees, to dessert was spectacular!

Skip prentious joes stone crab and get real here. Same stone crabs without the wait or the $50 bribe for the host.... Sit at the bar, order the cold platter for two and a nice bottle of oyster bay. Oh parking sucks.
