My wife, son & I went to their upper level bar on a lovely Sunday afternoon to enjoy the view across the treetops to the Gulf. They had a guitarist singing at one end of the bar while the light sea breeze helped to cool the effect of the July sun. Overall we had a pleasant visit; friendly bartenders and... More

This place advertises .50 or .75 cent oysters so on our way back from Fort DeSoto, we visited. Interesting layout with many levels and rooms. We started in the "sports" room so my husband could watch football. Many preppy-type men watching loudly. It was okay, but oysters were tiny. We then went to the third level which consists of a...

The rooftop bar is the pave to szee and be seen. It is a local's hangout during the lazy summer months and a highlight of the social scene during the high season when the Snowbirds flock to the aea for the great weather and gorgeous sunsets. You can select from a full menu, choose delicious appetizers or simply drink the... More

Last night before we had to fly home so decided to head on out to Billy's. Love this place. Food is great, service is excellent and the atmosphere is great. I have fish fry with fries and slaw and my wife had snow crab legs. Both were excellent. Will recommend and will go back when in the area,

They have a pretty active bar scene here, and there is a nice view of sunsets on the Gulf, but the food is just average and the service is slow. Not my favorite place.

It was a busy Saturday night, so we fully expected to wait. Sat at the bar, waited for the bartender. Sat at the table, waited 10 minutes before I approached the host to ask when we might meet our server....Short wait for our server, who had obviously been outside smoking, to take a drink order. No apologies or acknowledgement of... More

Please understand before reading this review, I am a person who gives both good and bad reviews. This review is factual and non-emotional. I give credit where it is due. This was not the case at Billy’s. In fact, it pains me to even have to give them one star. We were a group of five and a member of... More
