Based on the previous reviews we decided to try Billy's Place. We like to try different restaurants during restaurant week and this time chose Billy's. Our reservation was for 7:30pm and we walked out at 9:30pm without being served food. It took an hour to get our glass of wine and by 9:30 decided we did not want eat that... More

We decided to kick off restaurant week here last evening. It is close to our home, it was raining and we wanted to try a local place that we walked by many times without realizing it. I think we have found our `regular' dining choice. Billy's Place is charmingly satisfying with delicious food and a with a great lady at... More

Ate here last Saturday night and enjoyed a wonderful evening! We went there on Savannah Dan's recommendation as it was across the street from the Savannah Theater where we had tickets later that evening. Food was delicious, piano player was great, and our server, Darlene, was very attentive. But the best part of the night was when an elderly couple... More

I will admit it. I'm English and I like Pubs. However, some US bars that have Pub in their name should remove it. They have not discovered the essence of a good pub. McDonoughs is what a Brit would call the Public bar in a Public House. It is at street level and full of mainly local folk who are... More

Billy's place is a date night destination. Lovely ambience. Piano Bar adds to the dining pleasure. She crab soup, the best ever. Cowboy cut rib eye melted in our mouth. Three layer chocolate cake a treat. Complements to the Chef. A wonderful night out in "Ole Savannah Town".

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.
