Billy's at the Beach
Fantastic! My new favorite in Newport Beach. Great ambiance, there was a great singer/guitar player. Really cool casual island vibe atmosphere. Fantastic attentive service. The food was all amazing. We had the ceviche (amazing!), my sea bass was best I have ever had. Her swordfish was bet she has ever had. We will be back! Highly recommend!
Not a good place for kids- topless picks all over with loud annoying old rich drunk people everywhere. Will never be back.
All around great experience!
Awesome food!!...Love the ambience. Will absolutely go back and try the dinner hour. This visit was lunch
We had such a wonderful time. Our friends just loved their food and were so pleased that we selected Billy’s for our dinner destination. Thank you
Lively atmosphere with a great mix of clientele all looking like they were having a good time. A live guitar player helped to bring the noise level up but still tolerable. Waitress was amazing and took care of my kids needs without hesitation and made sure that the mai-tai’s continued to flow. Pupu platter appetizer is deceptively filling and caused a couple of the people in our party to change their entree orders to appetizers. Fish entree was outstanding and large although side dishes were on the diminutive side. Would definitely recommend for anyone who wants a great meal in a lively atmosphere with a Hawaiian theme.
Awesome May Tais, Pupus, and meals. Make sure you ask what is flown in fresh from Hawai’i and order that!
Wonderful view and great vibes. Casual but nice. Can get rowdy.
Dinner was delicious. I ordered the swordfish and my wife ordered the salmon. Service was good and attentive. The negative of the restaurant is the extreme noise. It was impossible to have any conversation with my guest over the loud music from the lounge and the surrounding guest's conversations. Perhaps nothing can be done to muffle the sounds here. Hopefully we can try again on a quieter evening as the food was very good.
So we waited half an hour before we were acknowledged only to be told that of the 6 fish dishes in the menu only one was available and this was 6:30 pm; I didn’t come to eat what was left so we went home and had a frozen dinner
No “darlings” from the waitress made up for the ridiculous fact that a fish restaurant was out of fish
We wasted $7 for parking but the famous mai tai was complementary
Great drinks! Dinner menu didn’t have enough variety. Appetizers were good!
Great food, fair price, superb view of the harbor. Can’t go wrong with this choice
Billy's was perfect for us as we were preparing for our upcoming trip back to Maui. We'll be back.
Great place for food and fun. Sunset views are awesome. Will go again...
Best Mai Tia’s ever! Food and service is good too!
Our server was amazing! The staff help very freindly and accomodating. The Mai Tais, always delicious!!
Waitress was not very engaging but she was efficient even with a full set of tables. Food was not up to par considering the photo array that's displayed on the site. I would't go back.
Horrible service. The appetizers got to the table with no serving utensils asked the waitress 3 times for some spoons before she finally brought them out. It was lunch time and they ran out of Diet Coke waited almost a half hour for a refill.
Great food !! Fast service and friendly couldn’t say more cause it will speak for itself trust me.. great place for a dinner out or a dinner party had a really good time .
Great guitar player embraced the beautiful view. Enjoyed the fish which was done to perfection. A great evening.
Nice restaurant great place for Seafood and Steaks
1 cup of coffee and 2 orders of basic French toast for $50.
Food, music and location of restaurant were great. Waitress only came by for order and to leave check. Valet was awful.
Great place to have a date night, with amazing food and good service!
Billy’s at the Beach was awesome. It is our favorite place to come for a nice dinner, whether celebrating Father’s Day a Birthday or just date night, we are never disappointed. The fish is fresh and delicious and the bread is amazing.
Location and food are excellent. Service needs work. Big fail on serving food. Ordered app to be served with meal and they forgot app, asked for it twice and by the time app brought out we were done with meal.
My husband and I took my father for an early Father’s Day dinner on Wednesday night. Sat at a nice booth facing the bay which was wonderful. All of our meals were very good. Both men had fish and I had surf and turf. My steak came out under-done and they fixed it. All of the sides were great as were the drinks. The key lime pie was just okay. Everything was pretty pricey, but just was delicious so worth it! Loved my Mai Tai.
Excellent food prepared exactly as we asked, attentive but nor overbearing service, nice setting right on the water. Just a great experience all the way around.
"I guess after all the positive views and comments about the "high price but worth it" , we had high expectations for a 5 star experience. The seafood really is excellent, and the service was great, but this is a very casual place. Great location on the bay which is nice. We just expected a very upscale place but if you're looking for a fun, energetic venue on the bay with good fresh food and great drink / wine selections , this is your place! The quality is almost as good as many first class restaurants, but with a very chill vibe. Great variety of appetizers and entrees- We really have no complaints, but were looking for a more classy ambiance for our anniversary . Interesting that at many of the expensive restaurants you have to pay separate valet fees- should come with the restaurant....
Great view, food and service.
Our service was very slow. The meal took sometime to get . The waitress seemed pre-occupied. Once we recieved our entree, it was luke warm.
We had the Halibut and AHI for our 5th wedding aniversary. It was delicious. We were seated by the window with a view of the water and docks. It was a very enjoyable evening.
Our server Danielle was amazing - the food was delicious, management was wonderful - such a great experience. Thank you!
Billy's is always great! Food, service & view, for lunch & dinner!
What is great about Billy’s at the Beach is the laid-back, island feel. Now that Tommy Bahamas nearby has remodeled and no longer offers this, Billy’s is it. Food is good, service good.
Always a great place to entertain friends. Bartender was fantastic.
Awesome as always! We've been coming here since it opened, for romantic dinners and large group gatherings! Love Sunday Brunch or Happy Hour on the patio, and dining anytime with the best view of the bay! Today we had a lovely long lunch, complete with fun craft cocktails. Highly recommend Billy's!
Had a wonderful birthday celebration for our niece.
Dinner was great but the service was exceptional. Our server Stephanie was absolutely amazing.
Billy the manager did a great job accommodating my large bday group and Clair was a fantastic server! Thank you!
