We decided to stop in for some fresh seafood while on a cruise to Canada. The food was extremely fresh and the portion sizes were pretty good too. I had the large lobster roll with a salad and my better half and I also split the seafood splash, which has lobster, scallops, muscles and shrimp. We also split a small... More

We were trying different Chop Chop dining experiences and this was our first trip to Billy's. The service was very good, and the food exceptional! Our favourite dish was the calamari appetizer - I have tried this dish in numerous other restaurants across Canada and this was THE BEST! This become the best dining experience we have had in many...

My girlfriend and I were staying in Fredericton for a holiday and decided to make the short drive to Saint John for lunch and an afternoon checking out the shops etc. We parked at the top of the market and the first place we came across was Billy's as we walked towards the market. We had seen Ads for it... More

Had a very pleasant dinner here with a colleague. Service was prompt and friendly. Had the chorizo scallops which were delicious, even if the portion was a bit small. Dessert was chocolate caramel cake which finished it up nicely.

We discovered Billy's at the top of the market downtown. Had a wonderful chowder, lobster roll lunch that brought back every lunch for the next three days!

My friend and I came here for lunch since we were in the area. We do look younger and it was around the same time that there seemed to be a lot of students around but that does not excuse the way we were treated by the staff here. We were looking for something light and when we shared that... More

The food was delicious and came out fairly quickly once we could order. It took way too long to get menus and order. Also took way too long for our bill. It was a bit expensive but the food was really good.

Thank you for your review. We are sorry the service was slow. If you were by chance in at lunch sometimes it can take a while to receive a menu or a server to get there due to everyone coming in at once. We do our best to give fast an efficient service to all. We hope that you give... More

This place was recommended by a local cab driver and he did not charge us for the ride. Must be a local deal...very dark and tiny place. Not much room between tables. One server, seemed like an owner trying to handle things himself. The reason for the rating was the food and wine...service was very "blue collar". Prices were not.... More

Hi judyjudyjudy9 We appreciate your review. First I would like to reassure you we have no affiliation with any cab companies. That sounds like you witnessed some great maritime hospitality! We do however have a great reputation around town amongst our locals hence why the individual highly recommended us. As for the staff we all take great pride in our... More

Thank you for your review. We apologize for your poor experience with us. The Lobster Mac & Cheese is $30 due to the amount of lobster knuckle and claw meat. You get 5oz of meat for the price. As for it being cold, we are sorry to have served it to you that way. When the chef plated it, it... More

We were drawn into Billy's by the sight of oyster shucking going on. We stopped for lunch, and had a terrific meal of raw oysters, seafood chowder, and salads. All were excellent! This was our first taste of seafood chowder - where we come from on the West Coast, "chowder" always means clams. Billy's chowder is made from haddock, shrimp,... More
