This place was hideous. The food was absolutely terrible, the service was horrible and access to the restaurant was atrocious. Never again! It felt like a cheap Jersey gangster restaurant with all the black, gold and mirrors everywhere. Two thumbs down.

Florida Stone Crabs are not an inexpensive treat; so, if you limit yourself to one or two Crab feasts per year . . . Billy's is you place! The view of the Inter-coastal Waterway is always interesting. You can request a window but you may need to wait a half hour or more if they are busy as usual. The... More

Beautiful waterfront terrace with lovely view and romantic gondolas. Great wines and seafood. Loved it.

In town for a few days from North Carolina, we decided to invite some new friends to dinner here. This restaurant was suggested to us by the folks that work the Water Taxi near the Westin Diplomat Hotel where we were staying. Made reservations on a Saturday night for 4 at 6:30pm. We were greeted and immediately taken to the... More

Billy's Alaskan King crabs and Stone Crabs are just delicious. Having been to famous Joe's Stone crab in South Beach I think Billy's is nowhere behind in quality and service. Actually, Billy's advantage is that while very well attended, as a customer you don't have to wait for hours for a table. Service has always been impeccable. Plus, it has... More

Eating here was uncomfortable and belittling. Our family went out to dinner and apparently we were under dressed because of the looks we received from the customers and staff. Our waitress was unfriendly off the bat because she sized us up and assumed we weren't going to tip well. The atmosphere was pleasant besides having to be surrounded by cake... More

The stomp sphere was awesome, looking over the water! The staff was very friendly and fast. Food was pricey but very good! The key lime pie was super. Definitely a must visit!

Our experience at Billy's in Tierra Verde was exceptional but this waterfront restaurant had a lot to offer scenery wise, but our Stone Crab Claws were tasteless. We were so totally surprised with the lack of floor in our meal from such a classy restaurant. The side dish of Creamed Spinach was delicious, though.

We were excited to try this restaurant after reading a local review. The service was exceptionally poor. It was a busy evening, the resturant was understaffed, we waited over an hour for our food which was mediocre at best. The scallops were overcooked and bland. The best thing we experienced for our $164 meal was the wine. Wish we had... More

Service there is excellent. Always smiles with great service. Expensive, but worth it for a special occasion. Never disappointed. I have not even gotten to the part about beautiful sunsets!
