Steeped in southern tradition, no visit to Aiken is complete without enjoying all the Wilcox has to offer. Lunch menu selections are delightful and very fairly priced. Dinner atmosphere is slightly more formal but very welcoming. Staff is accommodating and there is no better place to meet for a cocktail with friends or meet new friends. Do NOT miss this... More

The Wilcox has obviously been doing it right for a long time. The food is tastefully prepared and presented. Cocktails with great piano music sets the perfect atmosphere for a lovely evening.

If you're looking for Aiken atmosphere, the Wilcox is the place to be. Good selection on the lunch menu, without being overpriced. Great service and really good food. I would recommend to anyone.

My wife and I eat at the Wilcox at least once a month. The food is always fresh and well prepared. Chef Reagan offers interesting and tasty appetizers and entrees. The wait staff is always attentive and professional. Truly recommend this great spot!

When you enter the restaurant you feel as though you are in an elegant living room. There is dining seating in a separate dining room a few steps up, at a cozy bar or in the living room. Drinks are served everywhere and on Thursday evenings they have a marvelous jazz quartet. Honestly, we have never enjoyed a dinner as... More

The Willcox offers an almost unmatchable atmosphere with a great menu and bar. The food and service here are typically very good, probably the only thing the restaurant could improve would be consistency in these areas. We have been time and again and I will continue to recommend to clients and friends. With small improvements in the caliber of service... More

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.
