Billy's Place at McDonough's is a nice, quiet, out of the way, almost secret lounge and restaurant. Food is excellent, bar is friendly and well stocked. If you go on weekends, music is very nice. One of my favorite places.

This was our second visit to Billy's Place and we were delighted with the experience; however, we were surprised that there were so few diners there on this Thursday evening. Perry Street is closed due to construction, so getting to the entrance was awkward; however, it is accessible. The hostess and waitress were welcoming, the food wonderful, my wife had... More

He escorted me to the fine dining section, located on the 2nd floor. It was elegant & had great atmosphere & a pianist. I was... More

We had dinner reservations for Friday night...we had to walk through the bar to get to the area that goes up to the restaurant. The bar was so dirty...really nasty...we never made it to the restaurant. Had a great meal at the Hilton Hotel grill.

Doing the Savannah park tours on foot- we needed a place to stop- great stop! Friendly service and decent prices. Seems like many locals stop by here.

Our amazing concierge from The Marshall House ( Marlene) recommend this little gem as a "non touristy" option for my sister in law and I. We spent about 3 hours just enjoying the music, food, wine and ambiance that Billy's has to offer. You'll love it!! We will be returning in May! 😀
