There were 6 of us, 4 who ordered a hot buttered lobster roll. We expected chunks of lobster ~ we got small pieces and lobster “mush”. While we all finished it, it was not what we expected. Another friend ordered steamers and got steamed cherry stones, not littlenecks and the 6th person ordered a steak VERY rare. Came out med-well. They cooked another which was marginally better.

This is a fun place to go ~ just wish ALL of our dishes came as expected.

Billy's has a cool, Key West vibe, and on the weekends there's usually live music.

But be prepared - the seating is cramped, it's crowded, the wait staff is harried but pleasant. It's best to stick to the basic here - beers and fried food. There isn't much of a view (parking lot), but again, the place has personality. Given the tight quarters, you may find yourself chatting it up with some nice folks at the table six inches from your own, as we did, and had a great time.

I've been to Billy's many times, I love the mix of tourists and locals. and i love the selection of live music there. From Rock to rockabilly etc, and at a good volume, not overbearing. I will come here again and again!

Lunch with friends......meals ok, drinks ok..........happy hour is the best time to go! Like their fried shrimp, but last time was way over-cooked and sat on top of my potato tots ~ not a fan.

Service not so good, the food not so good and the prices well a bit high, but their happy hour is great. It’s a fun time from 5 -7. Mostly locals frequent this restaurant
