Billy's at the Beach
Maybe for drinks and appetizers.
The food wasn't bad but didn't seem to match the price.
Service was very slow and it wasn't a busy evening. A lot of empty tables.
Not kid friendly, absolutely nothing to offer other than sharing a plate.
My favorite place to dine with friends and family. Consistently great food and always great service😉
Billy’s is one of my fave restaurants, but the service (or kitchen?) was off on this particular night. One of my huge pet peeves happened: they brought out our salads and soup 2 minutes after the appetizer. We had barely begun eating our app when they brought the next course. Ugh! And the crab cakes and shrimp on the pupu platter were stone cold when it arrived. And they didn’t bring us appetizer plates. And then they tried to take my salad plate while I was still eating. Billys is usually awesome but they could’ve been better on this night.
Get Lei'd before Thanksgiving. Nice music, good service. Got the opakapaka and my friend got the sausage platter. Love the Hawaiian cheese bread. Tonight they offered a free app tray pass. Delicious pork pineapple sliders and mini crab cakes. I've come here for over 20 years. It has changed a bit. Mail tais are good but not as strong as they use to be!
Not as good as normal, figure it was a Monday night so not as sharp as normal
Food was delicious & service was outstanding! We will definitely return!
Great venue, great food, great service. Waitress, Michelle, was outstanding. Matilda, the hostess was charming. All Good.
Very good. We stayed for 6 hours and they never asked us to hurry or leave!
Billy’s has been a longtime favorite, consistently great food and outstanding service. If we’re fortunate enough to have Michel as our server, we feel particularly blessed.
First time enjoying Billy’s at the Beach dinner, as in actually sitting down and enjoying the meal. Have always been there for strictly mai tais only which isn’t a bad idea either. But it was delicious... the calamari is top 4 in Newport, had the spicy garlic edamame, caesar salad was a great portion and very delicious to go along with the steak frites which the steak was cooked perfectly. Our friend ordered a twice baked potato with his meal and it looked so good that my girlfriend had to get one as well and must say I’m glad she did. Will definitely be back for dinner and of course mai tais... did I mention we had 12 between the 3 of us.....
Always a fun place to go super lively love to pull up in the duff'y We always know we're gonna have good Mai tai's
Great Sunday morning start.
Great evening.. ask for the heaters to be turned on if you’re seated outside in cold
Always a blast....great spot, great people watching and a true Newport experience....
Always consistent, one of our favorites spots for nibbles, meals & Mai Tai’s.
Last night of vacation
The service, food and atmosphere were truly great! Our only issue was there was a waft of sewer smell on the patio, often. But honestly, it wouldn't stop us from going back for the food and service truly were bar none. We will simply sit in a different area of the patio. Highly recommended for out of town guests.
Went there for the mai tais heard they were the best ever we didn’t like them to sweet taste like syrup water. The noise level is too loud can’t talk the bus boys never came by with more bread or water had to keep asking for water. The food was outstanding the waitress was excellent it’s a little overpriced would think twice about going again.
Great place for a birthday dinner. The service and food were excellent.
Always fun for Sunday!!!
Food was pretty good. I had the halibut with mango sauce and it was a little bland. The bread is absolutely wonderful but the Mai Tai wasn’t as good as I’ve had before.
Debbie was great. Food and drinks were delicious
Always a great time with the friendly folks at Billy’s!
We asked for a window view, but we were not accommodated due to "reservations", which we had as well. We watched as many window seats remained empty. Not that impressed. Would have been better to just sit at the bar and order from the bar.
Scallops were out of this world!
Excellent evening with the family. Food (halibut and scallops) were perfect. Clam chowder was great! Service was excellent!
Anniversary dinner and Deb was great!
Billy’s is always a good go to spot. One of my favorite local spots.
When we arrived Sunday night, the band, noise and inebriated clients were too much for us. It was so loud that we decided to leave within minutes. Maybe we just hit a bad night, but will not return.
We had the Asparagus/Crab omelet with hollandaise sauce. It was good, but slightly under seasoned, could of used a bit more salt. The hollandaise sauce was ok, but again not too much flavor. That being said, I ate it all up!
Sit away from the bar and it's a bit more quiet, food was good staff was great.
Taylor was perfect. She knew about the birthday celebration and was attentive and happy and witty. Would always ask to sit in her section again if possible
I came for a business lunch recommended by a friend. I liked the relaxed atmosphere and the view of the bay (not many boats moving on the water). The service was excellent and the food great (seared ahi sandwich). A little on the pricey side. The valet parking at $7 was a good value as parking in the city public lots would be about $7 for a couple of hours. Overall a good place for a meal and I will go back in the future.
Everything is fried or covered in butter. There were Gnats everywhere. Honestly the worst I’ve had in Newport.
We enjoy food that has unique flavor(s).
Everything we ordered was prepped well.
But not to our taste buds at Billy’s.
In my opinion, the food lacked the “the yum/wow factor”.
Billy’s prepares food for generic flavor. We added salt and pepper to soup. Asking for horseradish for the new york steak. Baked potato over done for 6pm reservation. Probably direct heat vs. foil wrapped. Mussels/clams, broth bland vs. butter,
wine bouquet. I think the butter was ‘clarified?” No flavor...unsalted? Manila Clams at
Eat Chows—outstanding as well as the garlic bread. Calamari/Puu Puu platter, same generic flare.
Had mai tai, mildest one I’ve ever had.
Great view on the coast, Same view can be had at the Balboa Bay Club. No disappointment there for flavor.
Thanks for the ice cream and candle for BD celebration.
We. Just have had a beginner waiter. We waited quite some time for our food. That drink refills were so late that the manager comped them.
Great waitress and dinner service! Will be back again soon.
Always have a great time love it or any occasion beautiful view
Excellent food and service. Booth location and general ambiance was notable.
Food and presentation were nothing special, very loud inside and out...could not hear anyone talk to you...disappointed
