This used to be one of our favorite places in town. For the last year or so, the service and quality of food has steadily spiraled downward. Although it is usually full of vacationers who have heard of its past excellence, the locals, who actually made it successful in the first place, are staying away in droves.

My wife and I had been big fans of The Willcox for several years but after a visit close to a year ago, when we found the menu unappealing and the service indifferent, we did not go back. Our most recent experience, just a couple of weeks ago, moved the restaurant back near the top of our list of favorites.... More

On Friday evenings, John Vaughn, plays the piano in the lobby. I highly recommend that you find a table in the lobby and enjoy his music. It's a very nice 3 hour event.

I've been going to the Wilcox for a couple of months now and all I can is "Well done." This place is awesome and the customer service is wonderful. Great job!

Food is good just a little pricey. Customer service is great. Funplace to go for relaxation. Area where located is a very nice part of Alien and the history that you can learn is great.

I've been checking by this restaurant for 2 months. Every time I go by there they are slammed. So I finally did a call in & sent wife & son for their takeout service. The Wilcox is 8 miles from my home & the food I got delivered was exceptionally great. We had Caesar salads for starters. My Entree was... More

While staying at The Willcox recently, my husband and I ate many meals and snacks at the restaurant and bar. Each morning we enjoyed an outstanding breakfast. It is unlike any continental breakfast you can imagine. We especially loved the staff. It was apparent that they all enjoy working together as a team. Each member of the staff (I didn't... More

We ate here for dinner while visiting the hotel. Even though we were late to arrive the nice thing is if you tell them you are guests in the hotel they will get you seated. Menu is extensive and offers some finer things at a good value. Wine list offerings are very reasonable. In short just like eating dinner at... More
