Filthy, Filthy, Filthy, so bad we had to leave (and that's bad)!

My husband and I were visiting the Miami area and made a special effort to go the Billy's Stone Crab as it had been recommended to us by a native Floridian. When we walked in the lobby smelled fishy. Then we walked into the main floor of the restaurant and not a sole was seated and no staff were... read more

Great food, great atmosphere, great views, great service, great long waits, but worth every minute. Ask for Michael to serve you. He is the best I ever had. Really alert, considerate, and professional.

Very nice restaurant. Great sunset views over the inter coastal waterway. Food and service was excellent. I enjoyed the stone crab and had gator as an appetizer. My wife enjoyed the fish selection. All in all a very nice place for a special occasion. A little on the pricy side so for me. But for that special dinner or date... More

This place is not cheap but it's worth every penny. The crabs are the absolute best sat next to the water with excellent service. Totally worth the visit well worth the investment.

The service at Billy's is excellent. Especially if you sit at the bar for dinner to avoid the long wait. Their stone crabs are always fresh and tasty. Also best onion rings a better deal then Joe's but still pricey .

I took my parents here while visiting the area on a business trip. Billy's was recommended by a local hotel, but I was disappointed. Overpriced, crowded, noisy, slow service, mediocre food. Try the downtown are of Hollywood... there are much better places around.

pleasant setting, overlooking the waterfront ( not the ocean but the canal between north and south lakes). professional and efficient service. Sea food is fresh and of good quality. Nice wine list. I definitely recommend this place.

Asked for a recommendation for a good seafood/ steak restaurant and was directed to try Billy's. Atmosphere was nice however food was average and highly overpriced for what you get. I don't mind paying for good food but the garlic shrimp I got wasn't any better than if I'd gone to Red Lobster in fact I'd have to say most... More

The food at Billy's was excellent. It was so good, that we dined there two days in a row.Be prepared to bring a full wallet though as it's a bit pricey. You have the option of dining inside or outside along the water where you have a great view of passing yachts. The service was good; however, during our second... More

The food is excellent, the crabs are amazing! If you get a table with a waterfront view you can have a great experience at this restaurant
