Billy's Stone Crab
The menu in this casual waterfront restaurant offers a dizzying array of choices. Early Bird lunch and dinner specials are served midday to 7p, and there are also cocktails for less than USD1. Shrimp and grouper are the specials Sunday; at lunch you can dine on the 'world's largest fish sandwich.' Steamed Blue Crabs are the favored choice at Billy's. On Tuesday through Saturday, you are also treated to a free evening boat ride to Shell Island with any purchase. There is a rooftop bar and a piano bar open after 5p daily.
Had read some yahoo reviews. Most were unfavorable. Had eaten there a year or two back. Thought I would ignore the bad reviews and see for myself.
Wife, son and I went today 08/04/07. Since we knew about previous poor reviews we tried the seafood sampler plate before ordering a full dinner.
Sampler consisted of what was called groper, along with oysters and calamari. There was way to much breading and everything tasted of fryer grease. Not worth the $16.99. Draft beer was warm as was the bottled beer. Needless to say we went else where to have dinner.
I am sorry to say the previous reviewers were right. I now must add my own disappointment to what appears to be a growing number of customers who apparently will not return.
