The stone crabs were really good. The dozen of raw oysters were tiny. Don’t bother ordering those. Evidently some staff had called out so they were short staffed which lead to the bartender being short tempered. We sat at the bar because the wait for a table was considerable. He was clearly irritated with his extra tasks and didn’t hide it. Of course, that made us feel uncomfortable. Who wants to go out for a meal and deal with your server’s bad attitude? We stayed because it was the start of stone crab season, and we had read such good reviews. So the large stone crabs were great, but we probably won’t go back. Why pay good money for service with an attitude?

Billy’s has been around for awhile. They offer a large menu of seafood choices. Our server Olivia was great..very knowledgeable and attentive. My issues with Billy’s on this visit were that the majority of the tables in the dining room where we were seated had dirty dishes on them. Maybe they move on island time here but it took way too long from my perspective to get them bussed. Also this place always has an odd odor to it. Not going back.

An upstairs bar with a spectacular Gulf of Mexico sunset view.Friendly welcoming locals, drinks and music followed by efficient service, seafood dinner and delicious Key Lime Pie for dessert. Old Florida waterside entertainment and dinning at its best.

Our server was not friendly, the service was extremely slow, and the food was not good at all. The calamari was very tough, the lobster bisque was separated and tasted "off" and the stuffed grouper took forever, and was still cool in the middle. We spoke with the hostess when we were leaving to let them know (after we had paid, so we weren't looking to get any money back) and they were totally disinterested.

Have eaten here regularly over fifteen years. Always well satisfied with our experience. Great atmosphere, music and ambience.
Two recent visits prompts this review.
On both occasions our meals were not up to expectations. The clam chowder was so thick you could have been eating a cake. Please try Leverocks and see how it is made.
We had the lobster deal but they were very watery an nothing like our previous experience.
The room we were seated in was empty but all the tables, except our’s, was piled with previous diners dirty plates.
Second visit our main course was delivered before our starters!!!
We sent it back but it came back later re-heated.
Never again.
Feels like the owner has gone away.
Rumour says the place is to be sold for a building project ?
