“Billys By The Parking Lot?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

Service was so-so. Kitchen was overwhelmed and the food was terrible. I wanted to LOVE this place with its Fla-Keys meets NOFO feel - but they missed by a mile. The bikers slamming drinks at the bar didnt seem to mind however...

“Billy's by the Bowl .....”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2013

Absolute garbage.

Had a meal with my wife. She had Seafood platter and I had Fish and chips.
soggy, cold, fried, fried,fried garbage.

barely a scrape of fish on the cold fish and chips. The seafood platter was tiny and cold.

The waitress was worse. I left complained to the waitress who didn't care and just left the 51.00
bill for us to pay. It was packed and I just didn't want to bother.

My wife and I actually went out for nice Sushi in town about an hour later.
The food was very inedible at This 'Billy's by the Bowl or Bowel .."

Horrible .....

“If you are desperate . . . maybe”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2013

We've been to Billy's before and had concluded it was an OK place to stop for beer (mixed drinks were not a sure bet) but were never impressed with the food. That certainly proved true this weekend. The stuffed clams were AWFUL and when we said so (we had each tasted one) they said they would not charge us for the ones we did not eat. Seriously? How were we supposed to know if they were edible without trying them. At least the beer is cold and some nights there is fun music which draws a nice bar crowd.
