Gregory Werner

My favorite place to get seafood and crawfish

Jennifer McCarthy

Absolutely delicious!!!! crab cake appetizer was the best I've ever had. Pretty tasty drinks too.

Amber Greenwood

Staff was so helpful! We had 3 dozen live blue crab, and 2lb shrimp, and tuna dip that were so good we had to come back for snow crab and dungenous crab on our last day! Thanks for staying open a little late just for us! Highly recommend Billy’s Seafood!

Jim Campbell

Great place, awesome people and great fresh seafood!!!!

Randy Todd

Great place. This ain't a chain grocery stores imported farmed shrimp. Billy's is an authentic Gulf seafood market, featuring fresh local shrimp, oysters, fish and crabs. Their slogan is "if it swims, we've got it" and that's pretty much what you will find. It's worth the drive. You MUST try the Royal Red shrimp. Ask Billy's how to prepare them. A true Alabama delicacy.

Michael Kolinski

Mike, the fishmonger who helped me was very nice and polite. He took good care of me and answered all my questions. They have some great looking seafood and shrimp. I got some royal reds and regular shrimp in addition to some nice oysters and snapper. Prices were very reasonable.

Felix Stacy

Best place on the gulf!

The staff was amazing. I loved visiting there. They answered all of my questioned patiently as I am not so familiar with fish. I will recommend them just because of their amazing customer service. The fish I got from them was also very fresh.

Brian Harmon

Mike went out of his way to help us decide what we wanted for dishes we were considering and then he took the time to thoroughly explain how to cook them just like he does at home. Great prices, great selection, and great service!

Ruby Reds and fresh fish. A cooks delight. They filled our 40qt cooler with ice to make sure our shrimp and grouper made it home.

Rob Beam

Great source for FRESH seafood right off the boat. Great selection. Very helpful and friendly.

Bjørnar L

Authentic place to purchase seafood. Definitely give you that Bubba Gump feel for anyone that appreciate a local place with character

Vance Blackburn

A busy family owned fish market that offers a great variety of seafood and more. As snowbirds visiting the area for the first time we wanted to see Billy's Seafood for ourselves. We stopped in on a Wednesday afternoon and we were pleasantly surprised at the number of fellow snowbirds that pulled in with us. The market is small and you are treated like family by the employees. The pungent smell of fresh caught seafood hits your as soon as you step in the door. Your first view is a wide selection of shrimp. From head-on Royal Reds to small salad size that have already had the heads removed. You can also find oysters, shrimp salad, a full line of seasonings and so much more. As for fish, they had fresh off the boat Flounder, Red Snapper and others. In our opinion, their pricing is terrific. Royal Reds were only $7.49 lb and XX Large shrimp were $12.99 lb. They will cook the shrimp for only a $1.00 per pound, either using a plan water method or your choice of seasonings. Plus they put them on ice to cool them down and then double bag them for the trip home. Who could ask for more?!?!? Well, you can get more by having them ship your favorite seafood via next day delivery across the U.S. While we waited for the shrimp to cook, we were entertained by one of the workers who is part of Billy's family with tales of travel and fishing in the area. He had also travel to Costa Rica and on some incredible trips. If you want great seafood at reasonable prices and you like supporting a family owned business, then this is an easy destination for you.

Billy's always has a great selection of fresh, right from the water seafood (fish, shrimp -- several sizes to choose from -- oysters and numerous sauces to choose from. Staff is friendly and always helpful.

marian fischer

So easy to come to for a fresh catch of dinner. Straight down 65 to 10 .and at the door, you can't miss it. Guys very helpful.

Mark Mitchell

Great service and great people!! Got fresh mullet for bait and was in and out bery quickly! They also offer crawfish in season straight from the Landry's in Louisiana!

Matt McClendon

This place is sort of a legend. Friendly people, good prices. That's all you need to know.


We came here looking for locally-caught fish to take home and were pleased with the selection as everything but the tilapia was from the Gulf. We ended up taking home several pounds of flounder (huge filets), cobia and mahi to eat over the next year until we're back in the area again. I only wish they had volunteered information on how to properly freeze it, as we didn't know to ask and I only learned upon researching after we got home that the plastic bags they had wrapped the fish in would not have sufficed. But we will likely be back next year.

Jennifer Moehn

Super friendly and helpful! Packed up 15 pounds to bring home to Wisconsin!

Brian Ragsdale

Really awesome experience! Every one was very friendly and helpful. They packed everything to go and I can't wait to get back to Illinois ( well that part is a lie...haha) but I can't wait to get home and have a fresh seafood boil! And I can't wait to come back next year and visit them again!

Herbert Hicks

Address for billy and all his employees are very courteous kind and very helpful and that Seafood there is just outstanding

Charlie Coleman

Best place in gulf shores to buy fresh seafood

Larry McEwen

Great place to get fresh seafood. These people are wonderful, and so helpful. You can not go wrong. Picked up shrimp on the way back to Illinois. They topped the coolers off with ice. Gave us a lesson in preparing the shrimp for cooking. And helped get the coolers back to the truck. All that and $4 less per pound than in Gulf Shores. So tasty. We will return.


It just wasn't what I was looking for or needed at the time. Extremely limited selection.

Stephanie Fitch

Have no complaints at all! Thanks! Shrimp and crawfish were great!

Jim Bojan

Fresh seafood at a great price. They are prepared for the tourist heading home and packaged our fish for the trip, including filling our cooler with ice. Had the snapper last night and will be doing a neighborhood shrimp boil tonight to thank our neighbors for taking care of our cats and plants while we were gone. I also appreciate the biblical messages around the shop.

Dan Cheadle

Larry, we are from Illinois as well and our experience was the same as yours, 5* . They were extremely helpful in all manners. Great Folks.

Bought 10 pounds of jumbo shrimp, pilled and deveined. Steamed some after we got home and I think it was about the best I have ever had.
