We started with an jumbo order of Stone crabs and a dozen Oysters. They were fresh and tasted very good. They had the pasta with lobster and I had the large order of alaskan crab legs. They were already cracked and tasted great.

I love Stone Crabs and this is a great option to enjoy my favorite food, there a plenty options as well if you decide not to indulge in stone crabs. Another great thing about Billy's is that for an additional price they have all you can eat Great place!

My husband and I came down to Hollywood Beach for our honeymoon. We were staying very close to this restaurant so we decided to try it. I am not a seafood lover, so I got a steak. Outback has way better steaks than that. It had no flavor. My husband got grouper, also it didn't taste that great to him...especially... More

Don't go casual as we did & then feel a little uncomfortable. Service was good & our waiter was very helpful. We had crab to share and although we thought it was expensive $100 it was delicious & would recommend it everytime

Eaten at Billy's twice. Excellent both times. Crab, shrimp, lobster and fish all have been wonderful. Highly recommended. They have very nice outdoor dining too.

The restaurant is located alongside the Stranahan River and on the day we were there its a perfect time to sit on one of their outside tables. Several times during the day we saw vessels sailing by enjoying Florida's perfect weather. Having said that the food we chose was fairly ordinary. The fish of the day was ok but nothing... More

The food is very good at Billy's. The Stone crabs are served perfectly. Our bar tender was very good and nice. Try the butter with the rolls (love the butter). Only downside was, on a early tuesday night, we were looking for a little lighter fare and a small plate happy hour place, this place was not it.

Thank pjaquinto
