Excellent dinner! I had the baked stuffed shrimp and my husband had the Key West grouper and shared the sautéed mushrooms and onions. Both were very good. Atmosphere was very nice and service was good, too. Would highly recommend.

The water’s edge setting, dining in glider tables was a fun way to wrap up a vacation. The service was excellent, the king & stone crab, shrimp and sides were tasty. Good food and service, but quite pricey.

Was expecting some of the best seafood in Florida and was very disappointed. My fish tacos did not taste fresh and very expensive for what I got. My mom’s fried jumbo shrimp was good she said.

We went on a fishing trip earlier that day and brought our own fresh tuna that we had caught on the boat that day for the restaurant to cook for us. They will do this for $20.00 a person. They absolutely ruined our tuna. We...More

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."
