Billy's Stone Crab Restaurant & Market
954-923-2300      Map     Menu     Menu 2      top

Bill Hershey has to laugh when customers tell him his stone crabs are better than Joe's. They are exactly the same, he says. Same water. Same boats. Same truck they rode on. He should know. "I've been crackin' crabs for 30 years", says Hershey, a gregarious fellow who got his start at Miami Beach's Joe's Stone Crab -- was even married to the boss' daughter -- before striking out on his own and 11 years ago he bought what's now Billy's Stone Crab Restaurant and Market on the Intracoastal in Hollywood.

There are only a few landlubber entrees, but the list of fish preparations is diverse and interesting. All the dishes were quite good, but of course none of this really matters because you are going to order the stone crabs. Hershey says seven out of 10 customers do, and he goes through 2,000 pounds of claws a week.

So the only real decisions you're facing are whether you want medium, large or jumbo, and what sides to pick. As for the claws, Hershey says the mediums are the sweetest, the large probably the best value. Order regular dinners or go for the all you can eat Stone Crabs special (not available on holidays or Friday and Saturday nights). Sorry... No Reservations.

Longtime local favorite for local seafood and drink, not in a tourist location, but off of NE 26th Street in Wilton Manors. They are known for their Raw Bar, generous portions and fresh seafood.

We recommend their fried shrimp, larger than what a typical restaurant would serve, they are butterflied and lightly breaded so they come out with a nice golden tan color and slightly crunchy.
