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! 😀

This place has one of the more unique atmospheres in Savannah. Very elegant without being stuffy. Janice ALWAYS greats you with a smile and treats you like family. We took my wife's mother there prior to attending a show. They have the BEST oysters Rockefeller and French Onion soup on the planet! Their crab cakes are the best outside of... More

I called Billy's to book a reservation for my parents celebrating their 65 wedding anniversary. Billy's came highly recommended by someone who has lived in Savannah for over 50 years. My mother is a real foodie so we checked the online menu. We were impressed because it was well chosen and small. When I called I asked for my parents... More

Per another reviewer, don't let the bar on the bottom floor of this place put you off -- after getting off the elevator it seemed we were transported back to Casablanca to Rick's Café American (although their piano player/vocalist was much prettier than Sam). Great crab cakes, perfect martini, delicious desserts. Hostess and wait staff all top notch. And Billy... More

A couple of locals told us this was a great dinner spot in Savannah. We almost skipped it when we looked at the bar on the ground floor. So glad we ventured up for dinner. Food was good but atmosphere was terrific. If you are lucky Billy will sing to you as Nancy plays the piano. We returned after the... More
