Thoroughly impressed with every aspect of our dinner experience at Billy's. Our server was a true professional and had command of menu which featured House Special Stone Crabs. You must try the Stone Crabs, preparation and dipping sauce delicious! Grouper was also excellent and Creamed Spinach highly recommended as a side dish. Also try their Key Lime Pie for dessert....

Food is awesome and something to go out of your way for. Huge king crab legs and stone crabs and couch soup! Setting is really nice especially if you can get seated outside in one of the gliders and watch the boats go up and down intercostal highway. Staff very friendly and worked out a problem with us getting seated... More

We all enjoyed our meals here. Dinner was expensive, but worth it. The menu has a wide variety of fish and seafood, some served with pasta. The fish tacos were tasty as were the stone crabs, shrimp and calamari. There is a good wine list with several wines by the glass. Excellent key lime pie. Service was pleasant and attentive....

What a great place we stumbled upon during our visit. The best stone crab claws we've ever had! And the key lime butter for their bread is to die for. We had a great outside table next to the water to celebrate our 28th anniversary.

My family and I went to Billy's Stone Crab on our recent visit back home to South Florida and it was delicious. We all ordered Alaskan King Crabs and an order of macadamia crusted mahi mahi, The crab legs were delicious, however, the mahi was marinated in some sort of soy sauce, which overpowered the dish so our server kindly...

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!
