We live in Tierra Verde and have eaten here a few times in the last year. I lived in Miami for 36 years…and I LOVE STONE CRABS!…in Miami all the restaurants we frequented served amazing stones… constantly delicious and fresh . So tonight at Billy's I asked the waiter if the stone crabs were fresh and explained that I know the difference that I was from Miami. He laughed and said we sell as many stone crabs as Joe’s in Miami…. That in its self should have given me the answer not to trust what he says…pretty dumb. Joe’s stone Crab in the #1 top-grossing restaurant in the USA. He also asked it I wanted them cold or hot…stone crabs are not suppose to be served hot…. Warm stone crabs have an iodine aftertaste…so no one ever serves them hot. I asked if they knew how to crack them and he said… well yea! Like Dah….
So he serves the stone crabs the first thing I see it the they seem really wet. Then I got to eat it… the shell is not cracked in the right places.. you suppose to pull the claw apart and use one side (Inexperience people working there..its so easy to do it right)… The waiter takes them back and now they look all mashed up… they are filled with water and are mushy! (Which means that they're not fresh. What a rip off! Billy’s Stone Crabs should change the name of the place and stop serving lousy stone crab that have been frozen and defrosted several times!

I do not prefer fried seafood and contrary to the person they menu is not all fried and I have the crab stuffed grouper with a salad with home made blue cheese and a steak fry's which was 9.95 on the early menu and as usual the music and view was worth the drive

McDonalds filet O' fish is better...

...than the tiny, TERRIBLE, $20 grouper I had, it was dry as a bone... im not one to complain and yes I ate the whole TINY piece because I was starving after waiting so long for my food after being seated...after being seated about 18 inches from the people next to us that is.. I noticed the waitress (who was actually fairly nice) never asked ""how was the food"" or ""did you enjoy the fish?"" I think after reading the 2 to 1 good/bad reviews that they must have friends and employees posting to try and keep some business. the lot was fairly full so I don't know if maybe the burgers, chicken or something are actually good at this way overpriced seafood place. read the reviews and stay away, the reviews ARE telling the truth.

slow service seafood

Started off great with festive music upstairs in the bar and drinks. Got buzzed to be seated and the waiter took nearly 20 minutes to stop by to ask for drinks. Didn't listen to us after taking our drink order that we were ready to order dinner and had to call him back over.

The wife's salad came out wrong. Don't suggest ordering the house salad if you don't like olives. Not technically a house salad.

Food was ok. Ordered the steak and garlic mashed potatos. Don't order the mashed potatos, they're fake instant kind. Well at least they tasted like them.

The bar was nice, go there, but the diner area sucked.

Disappointing

Went just once. Never again. Stone crabs were frozen (even in season) and tasteless, everything fried. Despite being very crowded, service was excellent. A tourist trap.

YUCK!

Great place to eat if you like FRIED & BREADED everything. Not expensive but definitely not cheap for frozen fishsorry this food is NOT fresh. Sitting by a window is a nice view of the Gulf but that seating is limited. There many better choices for restaurants at the beach. For example Friendlies Tavern on Reddington beach has to die for all you can eat crab legs on Thursdays and Karaoke after 9pm. Being a resident of Tampa Bay I would have to say the locals claim the best place for seafood in St. Pete is the hole in the wall Crab Shack. Located on the St. Pete side of the Gandy bridge. Super Grouper sandwich, Smoked mullet, butter and garlic mussels, alligator it is all delicious and a great price! Fun family style dining.
