I have passed this place so many times without even knowing it was there. It's upstairs above its sister restaurant and bar. It's an old school piano bar that serves great food. A party of 15 of us went and everyone gave rave reviews. No one had a bad meal. Will definitely be returning!!

we were in town for a convention and our board dinner was the night before our convention started. Our President request our meal to be on Monday night when the restaurant was normally closed. WHAT A TREAT....the staff was wonderful, food outstanding, everything everyone had was melt in your mouth good. From the appetizers first to dessert...thank you so much... More

I wouldn't have found Billy's if my B&B concierge hadn't told me to go around the side and take the stairs to the second floor! And fortunately the hostess was on the landing, holding the door open - because I wouldn't have known to go through the plain black door. There was live music; there weren't many diners. The wine...

This little gem is upstairs above McDonough's near the Savannah Theater. It has a great menu and wonderful service.

This was definitely the place to be on Friday night after having seen the Savannah Live performance across the street. It was packed. It was also karaoke night, which was entertaining. The food was good.

Go here, sit at the bar, have a great mint julep, listen to moon river being played on the piano in the city in which it was written....just don't order the food. We were sat under a black light so our food looked absolutely nauseating (it was laughable really). The meat was so dry, and for the price we paid... More

What a beautiful restaurant. You would never know it there. One of the few fine dining places in the historic district. Giovanna was so friendly. Piano player/singer during dinner was terrific. Music later on, food very good and good size portions as well. I'd go back over and over. Not well advertised but very romantic.

When I lived in Savannah I used to go to this spot all the time.. Located in the historic district if you are walking the parks and want a cold one and a snack. this is a very good choice.

What a find! My wife and I were just strolling through the beautiful historical district when we stumbled upon Billy's - it was BY FAR our favorite medal in Savannah. The crab cake was wonderful, but the atmosphere with the talented singer/piano player and bongo drummer was out of sight. We loved it, and so will many others.
