“Dirty, grimy, smelly and shady”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

This "Dive Bar" is dirty and grimy with really over priced, poorly made drinks. They sell food as well and it is HORRIBLE! Pizza made me extremly sick. The DJ spins really loud, horrible music at night. Found people doing drugs in the bathroom! Don't waste your time!

“A stop while on vacation”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

Not in a very nice area. Didn't feel welcomed. It wasn't busy and we sat at the bar and ordered a drink. Even though the bartender wasn't busy except talking to a couple regulars she ignored us. I even stuck my empty beer out so she could see it and she ignored it. I think she could care less and wanted us to leave, which we finally did. I guess they don't want to make any money...or tips! What a dive!

“A Dive.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

Billy D's is in the south beach part of Clearwater Beach. lt was close to our hotel so we went in there a couple of times after a day out. lf you like vulgar rap music turned up so loud you have to lean across the tables to have any resemblance of a conversation you might like this place. The beer always seemed to be in short measurements and the wine so cheap a make that it was better suited to sprinkling on your french fries. A grungy looking interior with a pizza place in the corner, of which we never saw a pizza come out of. When we saw two women making out by the pool table we gave up going there. What we did find 3 minutes away was a place called Kelly's with better music, staff and Guinness for $5 a pint, it was like a breath of fresh air.

“Great Stuffed Pizza!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

We went in the late afternoon for take out and the staff went out of their way to make us feel welcomed and introduce us to their menu. Sauce is excellent - burgers are REAL! My husband and I are "60 something", but agree that Billy D's would be THE PLACE to be every night. Stop in to see their evening specials and entertainment!
