“Worth the stop.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2014 via mobile

Saw this place as we were passimg by and decided to given it a try. Oysters, snow crab legs, shrimp, sides and key lime pie were all very good! Crab cakes were too bready so I would pass on those. Overall very satisfied. Customers service was great too!

“Best Raw Oysters in PCB”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2014

Billy's by far has the freshest raw oysters there are on the beach. They are sweet and salty as if they just came out of the bay! In addition, the blue crab is delicious and cooked to perfection.

“Best Oyster & Seafood Dive in PCB!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2014 via mobile

It's been around forever for good reason! You can't beat the oysters, shrimp or Billy's spice! It's worth the wait! We love this place! I get the jalapeño baked oysters with crab! Delicious! The peel and eat shrimp- Yummmm! This is a great family owned restaurant! Keep doing what you're doing! You do it well!

“Gimme 3 steps,gimme 3 steps mister toward the door and you'll never see me no more”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2014

My wife and I always find our way to Billy's for oysters.He has a varied selection and the price on previous visits was lower than other restaurants in PCB.Face it the ambiance on the deck next to a 4 lane highway is nothing to write home about.This visit the baked oysters with jalapeño were 14.99 and two of the oysters were the size of chocolate M&M's.The worst part of the trip was about 6 hours later when..either the oysters or the food preparation created a volatile projectile event until well after dawn.Bottom line you will never see me,my family or friends in this joint. No more,no more,no more.

“Try somewhere else!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2014 via mobile

Food not very good and overpriced. One person in party got seafood platter and when we asked what the fish was... She said tilapia...are you kidding..we are sitting at the ocean. Coconut shrimp very bready..no taste . only thing anyone was pleased with was the grilled grouper and oysters. Party of 6 and bill was 200 dollars.. Wouldn't go back.
