Great food and drinks

Delicious! Make sure to make a reservation and go over early to have drinks in the bar and "living room" area.

I was in Aiken, SC for business, traveling with a dozen co-workers. Ate at The Willcox twice for dinner. Very popular place for dinner, would recommend reservations. Dinner was fantastic! Will definitely be back!

The Wilcox is lovely inside and out. We tried several appetizers and entrees, and everything was delicious! Service was fabulous as was the atmosphere. Will definitely go back next time I'm in Aiken. Actually, hope it will be colder so we can sit by the fire and enjoy a cocktail!

The manager offered to compensate within other trout, one free desert or half of the price of the entree. That was ok, but not great. The other four adults... More

This is a very old hotel steeped in history. The friendly staff and excellent food really make this a special place. It is very reasonably priced and the selections are varied.

Reservations for the dining room, or get a glass of spirits at the bar and eat while you listen to music in the evening. Be sure to call and find out what is going on for the evening you want to visit. You can make this a fine dining experience, or spend less than 20 bucks on an evening of... More

First time visit after reading TA review. Charming old Hotel / Resturant with excellent, but leisurely service. Food was very good, but pricey for portion size.

In Aiken for opening Hunt and Blessing of the Hounds. Elegant and comfortable rooms in historic building. LOVE the restaurant and common rooms. Staff are super friendly and helpful. A great way for three widow ladies to spend the holiday!
