This is THE place for stone crabs in the Hollywood/Ft. Lauderdale area!

I had been to the famous "Joe's Stone Crab" in Miami Beach a number of years ago and was very impressed with the quality of the food there. Billy's, likewise, didn't disappoint. The menu features all kinds of fresh seafood, but it's known for its stone crabs - in season most of the fall, winter, and spring. Stone crab claws are not cheap, so expect to spend some money. But it's well worth it.

They come in 5 sizes - the largest are the most expensive and are the least work intensive as far as getting the meat out of the claws. On this visit, I ordered the "selects" - on the smaller side - and they were fine - some little bits of shell to brush aside, but really no problem. And they were really delish! Enjoy! Reservations might not be taken - if you have to wait, it's worth it - some very nice outdoor seating available on the waterway.
