Great place to watch the USC games! The mai tais are tasty, but try the Navy Grog if you want to be more adventurous. Plus it comes with rock candy, yum.
Everyone talks about the mai tais being good and strong and they aren't kidding. The best mai tai I've ever had was in Maui and this is the only one that has ever come close.
Great food, great atmosphere, and live music most nights! They take orders on iPads which is super cool! It's awesome to get a drink at sunset right on the water!
Stopped here for drinks the other night for the first time and had a great experience. Pupu platters were delicious, but the drinks were far and away the reason I'll be back. Everyone has to try their Mai Tai, and if that doesn't end up being dangerous enough for you, whatever you do, don't finish the night with the Navy Grog... I mean, do it, but be prepared.
Very rude management, poor food quality, way over priced...t. Very rude management, poor food quality, way over priced...to many other good restaurants to dine at in Newport Beach.
I've NEVER had such a great time!.
PLEASE NOTE: Billy's is NOT closed. They NEVER were closed. Some idiot left a review, incorrectly stating that Billy's was closed. WRONG - They are still open for business and they're still going strong.
A true MUST SEE . . . . . . . . .
Truthfully, all you beach-goers, if you truly want to have a great time while you're in Newport Beach, then Billy's At The Beach is a sure place to visit. I think some of the other reviewers must have been on some bad dope or something, because we love this place. We have been coming here for at least 15 years and we ALWAYS have a great time, everytime. Yeah, the prices are somewhat high, but hey, you'll NEVER find another place like this in the entire Southern California area that makes you feel like you just stepped off the beach at Waikiki. Billy himself always greats us with a huge hug and I can't think of a time when he wasn't there. The Mai Tai's are a MUST. You even get to keep the glass, which I think we now have over 50 of them. Sunday afternoons are the best times to visit, in our opinion. Great live music, awesome atmosphere, cool refreshing tropical drinks, and excellent food. So, put on your best Hawaiian shirt, along with your shorts and flip-flops and head down Billy's At The Beach. Take my word for it, if you don't like it here, then you need to get a life.
OUT OF BUSINESS. BAD PARKING, POOR SERVICE AND BAD FOOD. THIS PLACE IS OUT OF BUSINESS
Good but pricey. This place is very pricey... It's a good place to go for a drink and appetizer... but, if you want to have dinner - it's expensive. I would rather go somewhere else. They have great bread there! Great atmosphere... they just need to lower the prices for dinner.
Great Place To Eat If You're A Racist.
I had to go to a wedding today in Newport Beach with my wife and some friends from her work. There was a 2 and 1/2 hour gap between the wedding ceremony and the reception so we decided to stop at Billy's for lunch.
We ate inside the restaurant and then afterward we went outside to the patio bar to order a drink. There were six of us. Four of us were white, two of us were black.
We were not on the patio for more than two minutes before a red-faced, 50-year-old, buff-yet-also-fat dude in a red Affliction t-shirt called one of our black friends a ni**er.
He did it right in front of and within earshot of the two bartenders behind the bar. Neither of them said anything. And they actually seemed to become annoyed with the fact that we had two black people in our party more than the fact that one of their patrons had just said something that should have had them removed from the property.
We paid for the drinks that we had ordered without touching them and left. The bartender was rude to us as we did so.
This place is terrible if you do not enjoy having your friends called disgusting racial slurs with the tacit consent of the bar staff.
However, it's great if you are a complete douchebag and enjoy hanging out at places filled with racist tools hopped up on cocaine and viagra, liver-spotted cougars with ripped arms and medium-sized fake breasts that are 17 inches apart, and skanky waitresses with huge fake boobs crammed into tiny t-shirts with ugly faces, thin legs and beer guts.
This place is Loserville and I hope that it burns to the ground sometime in my lifetime so I can stop by and take a photo of myself taking a sh*t on its ashes.
Great Place!. I have been there several times. Never to eat really, but for Friday or Saturday nite, the 2 man band is fun. Popular classic soft rock that you can talk to your date while they are playing if you wish. I went to try the Mai Tai's. It is worth the trip! Good flavor and very strong! I'm hooked and will be back.
