We stopped on a Sunday night and most every place in St. John is closed so after a drive around town we found Billy's. Great service and great food. Lobster roll and Smoked Salmon plate both excellent.

We went to Billy's Seafood Co since we were looking for a place in St John with fresh seafood and many of the restaurants have lots of fried foods. We started with the crab cakes and unfortunately we were disappointed. They were frozen crab cakes that were heavily breaded and heavily fried. I don't pretend to be a great cook... More

Stopped for a late lunch here as everyone we asked where to get a bite to eat immediately recommended Billy's as the go-to place. Food was very good, service was excellent and all of our waiter's recommendations were perfect.

Nice fisherman themed, friendly seafood restaurant, with chummy service and a cute namesake, this place underwhelmed. Fish was outstandingly fresh, with the local fish market nearby and prices outstandingly expensive, lunch was underwhelming. Lobster at $40 per 1.5 lbs a little silly, but there is a clientele. $50 pp for lunch just plain poor value for a nice red lobster... More

Came here late on a Sunday. We arrived in St. John late in the day and didn't expect to find much open. We were told to try Billy's, so we went not really expecting much. Much to our suprised it was excellent. Very nice, clean place with good food and service.

The only thing great about this place is the location. Right on King Square beside the market. Wow. This spot deserves a great restaurant, but this ain't it. The atmosphere is a bit like an old bar/diner. i.e. There is none. bunch of old tables crammed into an empty restaurant. No clams (seriously - sold out of clams? To whom?... More

Located in the historic sj market this place is a gem! Wait staff very friendly (as are most people in Saint john). The fish is extremely fresh. If you come by in the morning for Saturday breakfast you will see them shucking fresh fish. So fresh is the fish you can't even smell it when walking in. We had bacon... More

Lunchtime in busy downtown weekday found me seeking out this venue for fresh seafood. Being empty, I mean vacant tables, should have warned me, but the cold case had some lovely items inside. Disappointment is the word. Don't fight the traffic, high priced parking, and 4 panhandlers within 200' of the door.
