If you're craving some back east seafood this is it. We had chowder, steamers, lobster rolls and fish sandwiches. Done just right! We will be back.

Having recently moved from Boston to the Bay Area I was overly excited to find a place with Boston pride and Maine lobster (flown in weekly). This place is awesome - NESN on the TV with a Sox game showing, great staff, and the food was just like what I grew up eating.

First timers there, had the sand dabs and lobsta roll. Both very good and well prepared. A nice little find that takes reservations.

Wonderful east coast style seafood plus other dishes. Always something good on the menu. Busy place and they work hard at this side of town. Tom and his staff are great.

Billy's is a nice addition to Los Gatos. The menu is extensive with a lot of healthy choices as well as the more traditional fried options. The portions are huge, and well prepared. The Boston Clam Chowder (complimentary for checking in on FB) was delicious, but I thought the Manhattan Chowder was overpowered by oregano. I ordered the Lobster Roll "dressed" in a tarragon mayonnaise (a little underseasoned) on a brioche roll. I was intending to eat only half of the huge portion, but the roll was so delicious, so light and fluffy, I ended up eating the entire sandwich and didn't feel stuffed. The coleslaw was also deliciously peppery. My son said the fried oysters were prepared perfectly with a light crisp batter.

The setting is straight out of Boston with the old brick walls, etc. then comes the chowder, crab cakes, and lobster roll. Delicious!
The menu has many interesting choices and wish I had left room for the Boston Cream Pie!

If you like chowda (New England or Manhattan) or delicious fish or seafood, treat yourself to Billy's. The crab cakes are full of crab, grilled, not fried. Simply wonderful. Reasonably priced, wonderfully fresh!
