Our favorite in Aiken

Great food, wonderful service. When we were there for Easter brunch, my husband wanted a Ramos Gin Fizz. The bartender had never made one before, but she looked up the recipe in a book she had and made us two perfect ones! Needless to say, my husband was more than pleased and gave her a large tip!

took my visiting granddaughter here for lunch. The decor and history makes a young lady feel special and the menu is varied and food well prepared. Service and setting were worth the drive from Augusta.

This restaurant is in a hotel setting and one of the nicest places in Aiken. The food was very good and the staff very friendly. Wine list was decent and they had a full bar. The New York steak was very good.

Our daughter was visiting us for Easter and we decided to go out to eat instead of trying to make a big meal for just the three of us. My wife and I just moved here and this was the first year I wasn't cooking for 10. We wanted to make it brunch on Sunday but were told it was... More

Always consistent, In the summer there is an outside patio in the back that only the locals know about. Try the raspberry pie you will not regret it,

We secured a private room , on short notice for dinner party of 12. The Wilcox is an elegant , historical venue, beautiful inside and out. Food and service above average. Prices reasonable, with interesting menu. The Lobby is a great place for before or after dinner cocktails. Fun place to finish our week long equestrian vacation

A friend and I had lunch at the Willcox Inn today. The setting is quintessentially southern and the ambience in the bar and dining room superb. There were only several tables occupied during the two hours we were there, making the slow service more noticeable. Aside from that small quibble, however, the food was outstanding. I had the Asparagus soup,... More

The Wilcox has a varied menu, great service and private rooms available for a group . When we go to the theatre in Aiken we take advantage of their " special" dinner menu for theatre goers. We have never been disappointed at The Wilcox.
