No where in our town can you find the cozy wood atmosphere,excellent live piano and singing (Thursday- Saturday) and delicious food (from Hamburgers to a scrumptious rib eye steak and lobster bisque. The entertainment is worth the convenient trip. Have a great cocktail after dinner or bring your well behaved children earlier. Most versatile gathering place around!

Went for dinner with kids, good dinner specially for the charming atmosphere of the restaurant. Live music , great service and good food. Not a gourmet but quiet tasty! Recommend the crab cake and tuna teriyaki. Cocktails were nice too but too spicy though. Back when in savannah again.

Billy's Place is a classy atmosphere with great food. There is live entertainment (piano bar) and a dance floor. Specialty cocktails are awesome. I always have fun there.

Beverages! Full disclosure: I typically get my beverages at McDonough's: Mr. Billy Lee's karaoke-strewn gigglepit beneath the crooning glamour of his namesake restaurant and bar. Billy's Place always struck me as the place he prided himself most on--the bowtie-wearing vestigial twin of McDonough's that couldn't survive without its sibling's cruder exterior. I avoided it in the past due to its... More

Our hotel recommended Billy's after we couldn't get into the Pink House for dinner. We thought the food, service, and live music were excellent.

We stopped in here for a couple of pints on a Sunday afternoon. The football games were on and had most people's attention, but it wasn't too rowdy. A lot of people seemed to know each other and we even met Billy! The beer selection wasn't bad, but they were out of one of the ones we wanted and had... More

My mother and I enjoyed a lovely dinner here ( though it does seem more of a place for romance.). We had the crab cake dinner..yum! The piano player was great too. The place is full of atmosphere and not any more expensive than other full service restaurants. Our entre was $22 and a class of wine was $ 7-12.... More

We ended up at Billy's Place despite my telling our concierge we wanted to have a light supper before going to the show at the Savannah Theater (which was great by the way). This was pretty much a bad experience all around with one exception--the live music was wonderful! The menu was all expensive, full meals and what we ordered... More

The food was amazing but my favorite was atmosphere. The piano player was great and I loved that the owner Billy Lee is there and ready to welcome and say hello to everyone!
