Had a great dinner before going to the Savannah Theatre. Piano Bar=excellent singer. Enjoyed enough that we came back for a scotch after the show. You should definitely try to meet Billy, the owner. Nice guy who will make you feel at home. Also, try to get him to sing "Its a Wonderful Life" - you can tell that he... More

Small bar with a small dance floor and Dj. Best part is that it is connected to McDonough's so you could didn't need to wait long for a drink.

This is a very American restaurant on the upper storey of this bar. The room looks old but is actually a reconstruction with Savannah brick and wood. The welcome we received was very genuine and I guess they do not get too many tourists here. The entrance is on a side street with no doorman and you take a lift... More

Well I am sure you have read my statements on duck. Well I was suppressed to see Roast Duck on Billy’s menu and at only $22.00. Well the duck was cooked to perfection. The duck was deboned and the skin was as crisp as you could get it while leaving the meat tender and moist. Cooked in the French tradition... More

We have been to McDonough's several times and were curious about the restaurant upstairs. We were blown away. The food is fabulous and the service excellent. After dinner, we were introduced to the owner. We will definitely return to Billy's on our next visit to Savannah.

This is a great place for friends, a date night or any other excuse, ahem I mean reason you need to go out. The service is very good and the food even better. The entertainment by Mike is wonderful. This place is especially good if you are going to catch a show at the Savannah Theater!
