Do not waste your money at any of the Calabash buffets. They are high priced and the food is nasty. We would never go back and would ni Ot recommend this restaurant to anyone and if I could have gotten my money back I would have. I was sick most of the night from the awful food.

Most tender, lightly fried fish I have ever had. If only there was a liquor license. Great value for the money.

After seeing the reviews of this restaurant, we decided to try them out. First off, we had gotten seated just fine. Then the worst service I had ever saw in my life! Lady with short grey hair who acted like the boss was cussing at the employee's. Well with us with two small children, this upset us greatly. Our food came out and was under cooked and tossed infront of us. Rushed us out the door and locked my child in the building while we were waiting on the outside porch area. We will NEVER eat here again..... it was a true horror to go to this place. Stay Away!

"Southern Style" cooking is one thing, but "Southern Style Seafood" can only be found in CALABASH, NC. You want a tea with a bite stop at "SEAFOOD HUT". If you want an awesome salad "ELLA's". If you want mouth watering chicken "DOCKSIDE". If you want a loud place "CAPT. NANCE's. If you want TRUE SOUTHERN STYLE SEAFOOD.....stop at Billy Bass. Yes, I said "BILLY BASS"...Why? Over the years seafood in Calabash, has become fast food for some restaurants......meaning speed cooking and grease filled food. Billy Bass, is not grease filled food like some places. You have a wait staff and owner who love what they do and this is there "LIFE". I think it's says alot when, the wait staff brings you out the last piece of chocolate layer cake - no charge! Slips your children something special. Nosie level - low because its a small restaurant. Quality of food excellent because it's cooked with CARE. Value of your meal...........PRICELESS

My wife and I ate here on nov. 7 and had a very enjoyable meal. The food was prepared just right and was fresh. The homemade hush puppies with cinnamon butter was a very good starter. The waitress was pleasant and friendly. Will eat here again on our next trip..

We had a seafood platter. It was very tasty, not greasy, hush puppies have a good flavor. Portions are very generous. We have eaten at several other places in calabash and billy bass is the best for us..

After reading the reviews, we decided to try it; we are from MD and are pretty picky about our seafood. While the fried flounder and shrimp were fine, the crab cake was terrible. The reviewer who said he's eaten crab cakes all over the east coast and these were the best, evidently has not been to St. Mary's or Calvert County MD. Our crabcakes are chock full of lump crabmeat, little filler (enough to hold it together), and either very lightly pan fried or broiled. We have been fooled before when we've tried crab dishes when we are down here, and swore never again. Billy Bass has confirmed my opinion. This area does not know how to fix any crab dish.

Went to billy Bass based upon reviews here. Great food. Not many people at dinner and doesn't appear that flashy from outside. But the food and service were top notch. I picked the Deluxe dinner and it had some of everything.

A little background. Have been eating in Calabash for almost 40 years and have tried them all. Also am an amatuer chef and know a little about frying seafood. Billy Bass does it right and so much better than some of the places you can see from their restaurant and are living on reputation alone, not the quality of their product and value. I first tried Billy Bass recently after reading the reviews here and will not venture to another restaurant in Calabash as long as the food and service remain as it was during my recent visits. Linda (the cook) does it just right---light breading, fried just right and not overcooked, and at the right temperature-another key so the seafood does not retain the cooking oil. If you like sub-par fried seafood, keep going to the other establishments. if you want it done right, try Billy Bass---you will not be disappointed.

Don't know who the ppl were that lived here for years,but the food here at this restaurant and the staff were wonderful. I ate in January at the Seafood Hut and anyone that stands in line has plenty of time to waste. The food here is excellent, fresh, lightly breaded and the staff is wonderful. The restaurant is the most clean and enjoyable in the area. Also, the interior is not tacky! Seafood Hut is horrible, drive past and go to Billy Bass for the best meal in the entire area. We ate here three times on the past trip, and we will return many times! Best coleslaw and flounder in the world

This seafood is the best in Calabash.The people are down home and very friendly! You will definitely enjoy the homemade desserts that the owner makes fresh daily.You certainly wont eat water front but the awesome food will more than make up for the scenery.

If you want FRESH seafood at a great price, don't pass this one by. It's a little small in size, but it is immaculate, up to date and wallet friendly!! I overheard some people in the grocery store talking about this place, and I had to see for myself if it was worth going to. I'm so glad I did. I got the lunch special for 5.95 - shrimp, stuffed crab, fried, coleslaw and some out of this world hushpuppies!! The amount was just right - not a bunch of cheap seafood loaded on a surfboard - it will stuff you and then some. None of this is frozen and those folks know how to prepare it. I will definitely take all my friends here and spread the word. Fresh, clean AND cheap! YUM!!! :)

Have lived in the area for 20 years an tried them all! Don't go to Billy Bass if you want good service or a polite waitstaff. The woman who runs the restaurant is tempermental at best and can be NASTY. The Cook is very nice, food adequate BUT the waitstaff are "hard of hearing" and the woman "manager" is anything BUT professional. Look out! There are plenty of other FINE places to eat. Try Ellas' or the Seafood Hut.

The seafood was indeed terrific! The deviled crab was some of the best I've had in a very long time..Calabash seafood is world-renown but I really think Billy Bass is right up there at the top..And of course, the key lime pie...TO DIE FOR!
