Very, very disappointed with the food we received. They presented us with a small plate that had three tiny balls and dipping sauce. We were told they were crab cakes. Then They brought the salmon dinner. The salmon was small, 2 or 3 potato wedges and if I remember correctly a mixture of peppers. The salmon was tasty but the... More

My customer took me to this place, and after a small hike through the market we arrived. Food was very good and you can tell that most of it is very, very fresh since it probably was swimming earlier in the day. The fish and chips was delicious and be warned the fish portion is very large.

Food was OK. Service was sporadic and slow. Thought it was very overpriced for what it was. Nice old building. Wouldn't go back.

Always a lovely dining experience at Billy's Seafood. The menu suits a variety of tastes. Choices are innovative, delicious and well presented. The staff is friendly and I'm usually treated with Harry's devilish sense of humour which also delights any guests that I bring with me. The ambience and decor are inviting, and you can purchase fresh seafood as well.... More

Visited Billy's for a New Years Eve dinner, good parking we were greeted and seated then forgotten for 15 minutes. I spoke to a server who apologized and got us started with wine and menus. Started with crab cakes which were very nice. And for a main we ordered Bouillabaisse which came with toasted bread slices for sopping up the... More

Had an 8pm reservation. We were greeted warmly and taken to our table. The waiter was friendly, professional, and courteous. We both ordered crab cakes as a begin; they were ok, we enjoyed the tiny bit of "salsa like" topping. We then ordered bouillabaisse, Shrimp and scallops were perfect size, was skimpy on the lobster. However it was well prepared... More

Very nice restaurant inside. The menu was a bit pricy for the quantity you get. The food is good and yes fresh but not exceptional to justify the prices when I compare with other restaurants I've tried in the Maritimes. I could find similar fresh seafood meals elsewhere for less $$.
