Went tonight for dinner. Was another great night. Starting with the rolls and key lime butter, then on to cesar salad which was fresh and tasty. Had the stone crabs for dinner . They were so sweet and good. Finished off with key lime pie. What a great dinner. On top of it the service was excellent .

Been here 20 years and I can count the times I have been here on one hand. Every time I go I remember why I don't go back. Drab surroundings. Overpriced. Musty smelling. Nice servers but they can't make up for the lack of effort put into what could otherwise be a great venue.

The place is by the waterway and being outside is pleasant most of the time. All seafood is fresh and tasty.

We went here for dinner one night while on vacation in Hollywood Beach. We sat outside at a lovely table with a gorgeous view. The food, although expensive, was very good. We all enjoyed something different. Service was excellent and prompt and friendly. We would definitely go back!!

we make a point to have dinner at Billy's whenever we are in town. On our last visit we came opening day of stone crab season hoping to have them. Unfortunately the claws had not arrived from their fisheries and our waiter, Michael let us know that. It gave us a chance to try something different. The steaks we ordered... More

A high-quality spot that serves quality food with quality service that is not stuffy. The meal is not cheap, but the crab is well worth the money. It may be the best crab that I have had. If you are hungry, go for the all you can eat crab. You will not be disappointed.

Waterfront Seafood Restaurant & Market in Hollywood Beach, FL Billy's Stone Crab Restaurant is known far and wide nationally and internationally as one of THE best seafood restaurant & market in the Ft. Lauderdale area. And for a good reason. Billy's two story fine dining seafood restaurant, is accessible both by elevator and stairs and has floor to ceiling captivating views of the Intracoastal Water Way in the main elegant dining room. The sunset is magnificent. And at night, when the draw bridge of Hollywood Boulevard is illuminated and the lights change colors, the view is quite spectacular, making the restaurant a preferred city spot. If you come sit on the dock or dine upstairs, you can watch this beautiful panoramic nature over the Hollywood Beach Marina. According to owner Billy Hershey, "It's very romantic. We have a comfortable atmosphere allowing customers to relax, look over the water and watch the boats pass by." Billy's Stone Crab Restaurant & Market is an ALL YOU CAN EAT* stone crab restaurant. We have ALL YOU CAN EAT* medium, large, jumbo and colossal stone crabs, stone crab dinners and ALL YOU CAN EAT* jumbo Alaskan king crab legs. Hershey says, "People come here and say Wow! Your crabs are better than Joe's. We will never say our crabs are better than Joe's. We will thank them for the greatest compliment that we can ever have."
