Looks like it would be a great place to eat but it is bar food even though it has dinners. Food came out cold and waitress was not friendly. Seemed to have a good bar crowd.

Our 2nd time there and food not as good as the first time. Not everyone likes the green goo in their lobster, guess its a personal choice. The prime rib cooked perfect and my husband gobbled it down. Kids seemed to like it fine. I will say our server did a great job she was pretty close to perfect!

We happened across this place looking for lunch. It was a little pricy bit what isn't in Terre Verde. I ordered the half lobster stuffed with crab and 6 shrimp. Lobster was great. Some of the best crab stuffing ever. My wife had the sampler. The fish was cod and flavorless the shrimp were very good. The coleslaw was great... More

WOW! I live in MD and we have amazing seafood options but this was the first time I ever have eaten Stone Crabs...My manager took us here the day before leaving the area. It was so freaking delicious we couldn't stop ordering the Conch the best ever! When you are anywhere near Billy's i highly suggest dinning here..

I was disappointed to see so many negative reviews of Billy's. We come for the early bird dinner menu, where the prices and portions are reasonable. Then we go to the piano bar for a drink and some entertainment. Seems that many locals come for the drinks, appetizers and entertainment. There are many restaurants in the area that we locals...

After a day at the beach at Ft. Desoto, Billy`s is a great place to stop for dinner or watch the sunset from their bar while enjoying a cold beverage. Most of the time there is entertainment in the late afternoon/evening also.

I usually head to the Crow's Nest bar, outstanding views of Fort DeSota, nice breeze, good cocktails, and eat at the bar! The other night we decided to dine with a friend who uses a walker. We sat in the beautiful back dining room. Service was mediocre, at best, portions were uneven, all over disappointment! Next time head to the... More

We stumbled on this restaurant by accident and thought we'd give it a try. The floors were sticky as were the backs of the chairs. I ordered a Grouper sandwich which they claimed to serve only the freshest of fish caught daily. I'm not sure where a filet of grouper gets a smell and taste like ammonia similar to what... More

Dinner was expensive for the lack of food received on plate. No bread with food, salad extra, small portions.
