For a very nice evening out in a very nice restaurant I would recommend the Willcox. Ambiance is very nice, service is excellent, and the food is very good.

Had a nice dinner, very relaxed, no fancy clothes. It's a handsome place, and not having to dress up is a plus for me. Food was good, service good. Seemed to have a "Cheers" type of atmosphere in that you could go and see your friends but at the same time feel like you're living it up!

Have always had great service and food here. I also think it is very reasonably priced. Beautiful, historic setting.

Since moving to Aiken a few years ago we have had many wonderful meals at the Willcox. The chef changes the menu seasonally so it never gets old. I recommend stopping by for Sunday Brunch, a relaxing lunch or dinner. The Willcox Restaurant never disappoints.

This is a restaurant with great food and great service. We never really new about is - even with living here for more than 10 years. It is truly a hidden gem!

Delicious appetizers, especially the lamb chops! Soups are unique and always good. Salmon is the best I've ever had. The atmosphere is like a nice NYC, walnut paneled hotel restaurant. Our service has always been good. This is our favorite restaurant in Aiken. Oh, don't miss sitting in the lobby in front if the crackling fire in the winter.

Although we're newcomers to Aiken having moved here last year, one of the first restaurants recommended was The Willcox. Drenched in tradition with its casually elegant décor and professionally-trained staff, this lovely retreat from the ordinary offers an enchanting respite to the demands of busy lives. Entering off the beautiful front porch, there's a large room that greets guests at... More

I had a steak and it was simply delicious! My dining companions had muscles that they said were the best ever. Waiter whose name escapes me right now, was just fantastic and very attentive.
