Janice, the hostess did a great job along with our server. But what's not to be missed is the piano entertainer, Nancy Witt. What a talent! If you like the old beautiful timeless... More

We went to Billy's Place with friends before going to the Theater on a Friday night in mid Feb. Our reservations were honored promptly and we enjoyed a delicious dinner , loved the pianist and the many Johnny Mercer songs. Great time, great service, great food. We enjoyed it so much we came back a week later.

My friend and I chose Billy's for dinner before a performance of Savannah Live! We were treated with genuine southern hospitality by both our hostess (who walked us across the street to the theatre) and our server (who was both attentive and cordial). The pianist was a lovely touch and the rack of lamb tasty though not great ( a... More

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!

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.

Thank Frisco M
