Authentic American dining

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... read 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!

For a great meal far from the circus roar called "Sinvanna" find Billy's Place above McDonough's. A beautiful interior with great staff and a live piano player it's a must rendezvous for a romantic dinner, (really the best steak in town). Plus they say it's haunted, can't beat that for entertainment!

This restaurant on the upper floor of Mcdonough's feels like a bit like you've gone back in time. By today's standard's it is quiet - even with a singer playing old jazz standards on the piano. The owner, sits at the end of the bar as regular patrons come by to say hello. The menu stays pretty simple, but the... More

Billy's is a local place above the larger and more well known Mcdonough's. The food is excellent,, its very quaint and private, the lights are dim, and it caters to a late night crowd, excellent for a late meal, or early breakfast!

The food was awesome, the decor is very elegant, the atmosphere very romantic, the music adds to the ambience of a soft mood..I've been here many times, alone, and with friends. The owner Billy is a most gracious and accommodating southern gentleman, soft spoken, articulate, and make sure that the guests are nothing short of comfortable and satiated. This is... More
