About Us

Known internationally and locally as one of the best seafood restaurants in South Florida, Billy's Stone Crab has the freshest, top-quality stone crab and seafood in the business.

Our Story

Started in 1975 as a retail and wholesale seafood company by Billy Hershey, Billy's Seafood Restaurant and Market opened in Miami Springs in 1977. After seven years, we moved our eatery to North Bay Village and renamed it Billy's On the Bay. We opened our current waterfront location at 400 North Ocean Drive in the heart of Hollywood Beach in 1995.

In addition to our fresh seafood market and restaurant in Hollywood, FL, our business has grown over the years to incorporate a fishery, an extensive selection of wines, a casual dining area, outdoor cabanas, an online shipping company, and an expansion of our wholesale business.

Our Seafood

Our fishery (BSC Fisheries) catches stone crabs, Florida lobster, yellowtail snapper, and other seafood daily, then delivers it fresh to our restaurant. You will enjoy delicious specialty dishes that come straight from the Florida Keys to your plate in 24 hours.

We fish in local waters because we believe our customers deserve the most superior seafood possible.We operate two fish houses in Marathon and Summerland Key, both located in the Florida Keys. Over 40 boats supply our fish houses with stone crab, lobster and fish daily

We ensure this by catching it ourselves, then hand-picking the best for you. Dine in our restaurant, eat inside our market, or purchase fresh products to take with you.
