Spectacular dining experience. My filet mignon was cooked perfectly and the lobster mashed potatoes were great. Allison was a wonderful server. My friends ate the sea bass and gave it rave reviews. Look forward to returning

About the restaurant
Known internationally and locally as one of the best seafood restaurants in South Florida, Billy's Stone Crab has the freshest, top-quality stone crab and seafood in the business.

Our fishery (BSC Fisheries) catches stone crabs, Florida lobster, yellowtail snapper, and other seafood daily, then delivers it fresh to our restaurant. You will enjoy delicious specialty dishes that come straight from the Florida Keys to your plate in 24 hours.

We fish in local waters because we believe our customers deserve the most superior seafood possible. We operate two fish houses in Marathon and Summerland Key, both located in the Florida Keys. Over 40 boats supply our fish houses with stone crab, lobster and fish daily

We ensure this by catching it ourselves, then hand-picking the best for you. Dine in our restaurant, eat inside our market, or purchase fresh products to take with you.

The spinach salad, made at our table, was extraordinary. I ordered the grilled scallops and they, too, were scrumptious

Our waitress was outstanding. Food was amazing, as always. However, this was probably one of the best experiences we've had at Sea Watch in a little while. Maybe dining a little earlier before the big crowds rush in is best. We were celebrating an elderly woman's birthday - and she was in heaven. Thanks So much! I've been coming to Sea Watch since the mid 1970's - and LOVE it!

The Rendezvous is always great! Our server Brian took good care of us - super attentive and friendly. Olivia makes fantastic martinis and Matt keeps the place running smoothly. This is one of our favorite places in Fort Lauderdale.
