Waterfront Seafood Restaurant & Market in Hollywood Beach, FL Billy's Stone Crab Restaurant is known far and wide nationally and internationally as one of THE best seafood restaurant & market in the Ft. Lauderdale area. And for a good reason. Billy's two story fine dining seafood restaurant, is accessible both by elevator and stairs and has floor to ceiling captivating views of the Intracoastal Water Way in the main elegant dining room. The sunset is magnificent. And at night, when the draw bridge of Hollywood Boulevard is illuminated and the lights change colors, the view is quite spectacular, making the restaurant a preferred city spot. If you come sit on the dock or dine upstairs, you can watch this beautiful panoramic nature over the Hollywood Beach Marina. According to owner Billy Hershey, "It's very romantic. We have a comfortable atmosphere allowing customers to relax, look over the water and watch the boats pass by." Billy's Stone Crab Restaurant & Market is an ALL YOU CAN EAT* stone crab restaurant. We have ALL YOU CAN EAT* medium, large, jumbo and colossal stone crabs, stone crab dinners and ALL YOU CAN EAT* jumbo Alaskan king crab legs. Hershey says, "People come here and say Wow! Your crabs are better than Joe's. We will never say our crabs are better than Joe's. We will thank them for the greatest compliment that we can ever have."
