A secret we want to keep from tourists...

Billy's Place is hidden upstairs on Perry Street, above cDonough's.. If you don't know it's there, you might pass it right by. (Similar to Chumbly's in New York for those of you who remember.) Billy's Place has a small, but very good menu; I've never had a bad meal there. Wine list is very... read more

The place sounds quaint. The hostess was very nice. There was a party sitting of at least 10 so we had to order fast to beat them as we were under a time restraint. The piano player was good and it was nice for background music. The menu is very limited and they were out of pork. Not bad, but... More

Well here we are into another new year, and the food and service at Billy's Place just keeps getting better! The New Years party was exceptional, with so many beautifully dressed patrons, outstanding entertainment, and the meals tasted as if they were home-made! Thank you Mr. Lee, for having one of the best places in Savannah for people to visit...I... More

We couldn't get NBCSN in our hotel to watch premier league soccer so we went to McDonough's & camped out all morning, drinking beer & watching several matches. Very laid back bar, very accommodating. Never made it upstairs. We had breakfast at our hotel but the breakfasts we saw come out of their kitchen were huge & looked really good.

Billy's on McDonough's is awesome! We went there to celebrate an Anniversary and the service, food and atmosphere are outstanding! The manager/hostess and waitstaff could not do enough for us, we were treated like royalty. The piano player is superb. She played beautifully and her selections included old favorites to classics to new music she wrote. After dinner we even... More

After an afternoon of watching football in McDonough's eating bar fare, was so surprised to find the gem hidden upstairs. Incredible food, service, and if you're there on the weekend, you may even have the privilege of hearing the owner Billy Lee belt out a couple of Sinatra tunes.

I always enjoy going to Billy's Place when I am travelling through Savannah, whether it is for business or pleasure! Not once have I ever experience any rudeness, nor ineptness of service, nor have any of my meals been disappointing. I have never had to wait (45 minutes) for any drink, regardless of how packed the place has been. Never... More

One of the best must if not the best restaurant & bar in Savannah. Excellent live entertainment, great menu with great food. And must mention the beautiful attentive staff. A must do stop for locals and tourists.
