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.

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 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
