Overall good experience. The bartender was a server who had never worked the bar and was pinch-hitting due to personnel issues. She had a great attitude trying to make up for inexperience. Fun piano bar, good food!

Billy's place is a nice and elegant atmosphere. The food and drinks were delicious. I had crab cakes, asparagus, and whipped mashed potatoes. The crab cakes was all crab the best I've had in a long time.

I take different groups of people (40 at a time) to eat at Billy's several times each year. Haven't heard a complaint yet! Their food is wonderful and the atmosphere cannot be beat. Take the stairs or the elevator up one floor to a cozy brick-walled space with a bar and a baby grand piano. The hostess and bartenders are... More

Following a recommendation from our tour guide, we went to Billy's upstairs, hideaway location and weren't disappointed. Service to excellent as is the atmosphere. Known for its superior crab cakes, which were accompanied at our visit with mashed potatoes and asparagus. With a glass of wine and the live piano and singer, it was an enjoyable experience we'd recommend.

Recommended by the concierge at the Hilton DeSoto. Right around the block from the hotel, within 5 min walk. Cozy, small, limited menu. Food better than excellent, atmosphere relaxing, staff very friendly and helpful with menu choices. Piano player wonderful. No rush, asked if we wanted to relax and enjoy the music following dinner. Hostess hugged us and thanked us... More

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.
