Billy's is the place to go for stone crabs if you are in Hollywood FL. Located on the bay with a nice view, the restaurant has a full menu featuring seafood, chops and pasta dishes and a great bar. The highlight however is the "all you can eat" stone crabs. They are fresh, meaty and plentiful. In fact I had... More

It might seem expensive but the food is worth it. The service is second to none. You are right on the Intercostal Water Way. My wife and I went when it was all you could eat Stone Crabs. So good and so much. Loved it.

We stayed in Hollywood Beach for a family reunion. This was the in laws choice. It is fancy and very expensive - ala carte. Not the kind of place a single mother dines with her son. For a special occasion it is on point. They bring a large plate of tonight's recommendations. Huge crab claws and colossal crab legs with... More

Me and my wife were looking for a good seafood restaurant in town and we found it here. Fresh seafood and great service with a nice view of the water. Enjoyed watching the boats come and go while dining.

My family and I had been cery excited for this particular restaurant but had been greatly let down. To start the service was terrible and seemed to be a bit biased and unfair. As we sat waiting for our food we realized that people around us who may have been better dressed (we didn't come off the street wearing rags... More

Here for my bf since I don't eat seafood. He loved the stone crab and king crab legs. Watermelon mojito was so-so. We came in close to closing time but we still weren't rushed. Our waiter, Gregg Michael, was very friendly and attentive. Would love to return.

Great view of intercostal while enjoying a great meal. Manager was extremely nice and waiter was excellent. He was very new but treated us as though he had had years of fine dining experience. Highly recommended Had the Oscar grouper. Wow. My husband really enjoyed the oysters. Returning for the jumbo crab legs next week.

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."
