Humuhumu’s description

Billy's at the Beach started out as a somewhat generic Hawaiian/tropical restaurant, but has upped the tiki angle in recent years, adding more pieces from Oceanic Arts and hiring Bamboo Ben to make some improvements.

Billy's has a prime location with great views both indoors and out. The decor is a modern take on the tiki image. BUT, the drinks, especially the Billy Mai Tai were ugh. The Mai Tai was so sweet and fruity we all stopped after a few sips and switched to another fair mix and then gave up and went to beer. The food was good especially the Pu Pu Platter but the waitress could not keep track of who ordered what at what table. Worst of all was the noise. The sound meter averaged 86 decibels and hit 89 as a high. This is roaring trucks on a busy street loud and you had to shout to be heard. It was painful to sit inside. Parking is a pain so this is a place to see and be seen but not to stop and enjoy.

Paid my visit to Billy's and it was pretty cool. Remodel done by Bamboo Ben is beautiful. As Spike mentioned its got great history and the Tikis by Leroy and the Leetags are awesome.

Lets start off with I absolutely love this place. I'm a big fan of beautiful decor and an ocean view, although there are not to many tikis the general feel of this restaurant is low key and nice. Their website has their menus for both lunch and dinner so you can get a feel for the food which I thought was some of the most delicious pupus, steaks, and seafood orange county has to offer. I am a regular on saturday nights because they have live music and entertainment so even if I'm not going for dinner I will stop in grab a fantastic mai tai that will knock your socks off and listen to the band. Again if you look at their website you will find a list of entertainment so you can plan accordingly if you would like.
