Wife and I were in the area and found this place on trip advisor. We just wanted a quick lunch not too big. The food was excellent. Served quickly and very good tasting. We will be going back for a larger more leisurely dinner.

Billy’s restaurant was recommended by a new Panama City friend. He said that it was the best seafood in the area. It was good, but not the best that we have had. There were a total of ten people eating lunch. We ordered salmon, bang...More

We stopped mid day for a late lunch. Service was prompt and server was excellent. We sat inside as it was very humid. Food was fresh, and typical of a seafood beach establishment.

We ordered a variety of meals and all were good. Blue crab, fried grouper dinner, cheeseburger and a grilled cheese kids meal. Burger was excellent. Grouper was fresh and seasoning on crabs was spicy but not too. Service was slow but we didn't mind...good meal.

One member of our group remembered Billy's from when he lived there many years ago. The food did not disappoint. I don't understand all these bad reviews since we were there twice and it was excellent both times. We came for Blue Crabs, but due...More
