Fried Haddock

Great fresh fish at Billy's. Also get the lobster roll. It's our favorite place when we visit ogunquit many times a year. Also love the pub atmosphere the wait staff and of course the view. Coming Monday to introduce 2 friends to our favorite place.

Oysters on the Half Shell*

I love raw oysters. But when I had them the other day at Billy's, I felt the juice or nectar had been lost somehow. Some shells were tipped on the ice and had hardly any liquid in them. Some of the ones that had juice just tasted like plain water. I've had oysters before where the juice was slightly salty, most of these were not. The oysters were fine, just missing some nectar.

New York Strip Steak*

I love a great steak and clam chowder, so always order both when I dine out and they are on the menu, every time I can. This summer, I ordered and consumed all kinds of steak and many recipes for clam chowder in, at least, eight (8) restaurants throughout Maine and one in New Hampshire. All claimed to have the best, but Billy's has the very best! There is no other as delicious - none can come even close - as Billy's Chowder House super, duper, yummy clam chowder. and tender, perfect steak. Billy's Chowder House clam chowder and steak are winners!

Billy's Famous Clam Chowder

Literally the best chowdah in the world. I've eaten chowdah all over the New England area and this is one is the best. We come to wells beach every year and end up at Billy's for lunch and dinner throughout the week. Unbelievably good food, excellent service and gorgeous views.

Fried Oysters

By far the BEST fried oysters I have ever had!!! So fresh, batter is not heavy or greasy at all; in a word... PERFECT!!! We drive 3 hours to come to Billy's about 6 times a year! We decided to vacation this summer in Wells, just to go to Billy's all week! ;) We also joined the rewards program and plan to come more often! I like to try new things and have tried many things on the menu, all are great!!! But I always get an order of the fried oysters!!! Absolute best :) service is also great, everyone is very friendly!! thank you... Shay and Dave

Billy's Famous Clam Chowder

Whenever I am in Maine, I go to Billy's. The salad with lobster is my go-to meal when I eat at Billy's. I like that they serve the salad with all the veggies chopped & separated on the plate with the mound of lobster in the center. The veggies are always fresh. They have wedges of lemon on the side. I always get my lobster meat with no mayo. I mix the salad together & top with the fresh lemon juice. With the sweetness of the lobster meat & the lemon juice, I don't use any salad dressing. A healthy meal without all the extra calories. They also have the best clam chowder that I have had. And I also order the steamers. They are amazing too.

Lobster Stew

I visit Billy's every year on my birthday to enjoy the Lobster Stew . By far my favorite dish anywhere. So buttery and the sweet lobster meat, just thinking about it my mouth is watering. So worth the drive up from Massachusetts( even the dead of winter). I tell everyone about the dish. Simply delicious. Everything actually is always a great meal.

New York Strip Steak*

I came up from Ct. with a friend to enjoy Maine's seafood. Every meal was better than the last and I STILL remember that Billy's was the very best meal we had while we were here. Every meal simply was better than the last! Our waitress offered great recommendations for our meal and a hot coffee drink at the end of the meal. WOW, WOW I have since moved away all around the country and I am now finally back "home" living and enjoying the good life Southern Maine offers. I have never forgotten that meal and look forward to many more! Thank you Billy!!!

Lobster Stew

Your lobster stew is the best best, lots of lobster chunks in it. Will be back in October and your place is our first stop for lunch but not our only time there. Tried the baked stuffed clams for the 1st time and they were the best I have ever had !!Can't wait to come back.

Lobster Dinner

Our lobster dinners didn't disappoint!! Lobster was cooked to perfection and arrived steaming hot and packed with sweet lobster meat. Our sides were also delicious and not just an afterthought. Our server was attentive and helped make our evening memorable - we'd definitely recommend Billy's!!

Shore Dinner

The Shore Dinner is a must when dining at Billy's. You cannot beat the fresh lobster & all the sides. We especially love their clam chowder. We visit Maine, and Billy's 2-3 times/year and are never disappointed!

Seafood Sampler

The wait person from Wisconsin, was wonderful. We had the same dish in May and there was so much more food then for the same price, that we decided to drive the two hours back for another go. We had chowders (clam and fish) which were excellent. Caesar salad was fair. The fried seafood (shrimp, clams w/bellies, scallops and fish were good but there was not enough to justify the $29 price tag. We also ordered onion rings. They were awesome but not much of them and we ordered the larger platter. Total tab was $110. Definitely not rushing back. So sad since we were telling everyone how we got so much food and how good it was.

Baked Scallops

Soooo delicious! I opted for the large scallops and they did not disappoint! Sweet, soft, luscious pillows of scallops and I ordered the Newburgh sauce in which to dip them. Outrageously good!
