Fried shrimp and grilled shrimp dinner were great

Great atmosphere to eat. No worries about seating because it is a large building. The shrimp dinners were wonderful. Our waitress was not the friendliest but that's just me. I love to talk.

We love this place, especially the Loft Bar. Great open air sunset view over the water. Singer-songwriter Pete Merrigan is there four evenings a week--Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. He's great! He does Hank Williams, Dylan, Otis Redding, John Prine, Zack Brown, Jimmy Buffett, numerous others, and his own stuff. And it's the way he does it--often better and more... More

This was a huge hit with our group. The restaurant backs up to a mangrove. It looks real "Key West" Great private dining room and many in our group stayed in the bar after we left. We bought all the stone crab they had and probably most of the oysters. Great service and food.

Went to Billy's to celebrate a birthday and the birthday girl specifically wanted scallops so I suggested Billy's. We had a reservation on a Saturday night and the place was full. We were seated promptly and had a nice view of the water. Not next to the window but close enough to enjoy the view. Our party enjoyed the lobster,... More

We always come to Fla for the holidays and always make time fir this. The food is good and the service is excellent. We ate from the "early menu" which saves us a few dollars (suggested by our server, I might add). We love the atmosphere of the place as well.

We took out of town family members here over Christmas weekend. Just stopping for a drink and some appetizers. Big mistake! The place was busy but we had to wait about 10 minutes for them to find some menus. Once we ordered, the food came quickly and tasted ok. The biggest problem was the prices compared to the portion size.... More

I asked my family members how many out of 5 and without fail it was 5 out of 5. Just an outstanding meal in a great location, once you find it!

My husband and I have been here many times and really have enjoyed the food each time. I am a seafood person and my husband is a meat and potatoes kind of guy. Neither one of us has been disappointed here. The staff is very friendly and the service is very good. My only complaint is that the bar can... More

if you want to "hang" out and drink listen to a little music outside top level, just dinner, go inside 2nd level, several bars each has it's own "vibe/feel" so if you are on a date there is a spot for you, if you are a family, there is a spot for you, if you are just in the mood... More
