We were here for a quick dinner while in the area. This is a friendly little sushi place, with great staff! We ordered a couple of sushi rolls, a seaweed salad, edamame, and a salmon bowl. All were really, really good! Service was fast, and...the prices were reasonable. We are looking forward to going back!More

I now plan my visits to Happy Hour at Billy Beach. The quality of the sushi is very good. Great value and very good service.

We enjoyed a lunch at Billy Beach Sushi, including excellent quality sashimi and sushi (salmon/sake was terrific)! The bento box for lunch is a good deal. Service was excellent, and food came out quickly.

We went to this high energy eatery in Ballard after going to the nearby Majestic Bay Theatre. We ordered several rolls good portions and very tasty. I ordered a sashimi selection all were very fresh and the expected tastes and texture were as expected from...a high end sushi restaurant. But given the generous portions the prices appeared very reasonable.More

It was a struggle. Billy seems to have undergone some changes. As lunch regulars, service had been included in the past but that's changed. If you are regulars, please don't forget to tip now. The AC was not working and it was 90 outside. There...weren't any windows opened. That wasn't the best call. And sadly, they seemed to over do the batter on the few items that had it so it was a bit overwhelming. I think the waitstaff were suffering due to the oppressive heat.More

Billy Beach Sushi is an excellent choice for sushi, the bonus is if you go during happy hour they have a really nice happy hour menu. Very relaxed ambiance, it can get busy so plan ahead and allow enough time.

The name, which makes its seem like a local Margaritaville - doesn’t give this place any justice because the sushi is actually good and fresh. Service was great as well and the prices were reasonable.

Been here 3 times over past 2 months. This place seems to have the freshest sushi around town. Atmosphere is very casual and wait staff is very attentive and full of good humor.

Our second visit to Seattle and our second visit to Billy Beach. I dreamt about this place so was excited to be coming back and re-living the love. The waiter helped us choose a good selection of sushi to share in our group but was...a little slow taking our order for drinks and then came to take our order before bringing us our drinks. I didn't enjoy it as much as the first time I came here but would recommend to others as the sushi is really good.More

Enjoyed my first sushi happy hour at Billy Beach Sushi & Bar. Happy goes all the way to 7pm which is great. I teach a block away so I will visiting more in the future. The spicy California roll was good.

We've been twice and both times loved the food here. Great portion sizes and excellent prices during happy hour. If you're in the neighbourhood, definitely give it a try.

We went off peak hours during the week of Chistmas - so it wasn't crowded. Service was quick and the sushi was really good !

I wanted to keep this secret, but how can I? I want others to go experience this place too. It's unassuming and you'd think with the name Billy Beach it won't have an authentic flare, but does. I'd take this place any day over Umi's....Happy Hour is great here. They get a generous 5 for the value and freshness (and we're always happy with the choices). We had sea urchin from the HH menu and a whole bunch of nigiri. The gal assigned to our table was knowledgeable and sweet.More
