First impression walking into the place was very dated. Dark wood paneling everywhere and stained glass windows, dated lighting, etc. but clean and well maintained. It was not a dump by any means but in serious need of a remodel. We were seated promptly. It was a Friday evening and they have prime rib on Fridays and Saturdays. Given the... More

Food is not as good as it used to be now that there is a new manager. Very disappointed with the poor service received by two different bartenders at the bar. John was one of them who is not friendly at all and Linda is the other who is absolutely rude and obnoxious. Her stone cold face that serves you... More

This is a traditional local resturant. Load, busy with tvs turned on. The food was solid but average. This is your place if you like all things turkey

Stayed at a nearby motel and the front desk person recommended this place. Said it was within walking distance, which it was, and reasonably priced (not so). We didn't catch on that "Willie Bird" means turkey, and the recommender didn't mention that. Not sure we would have gone if we'd known. We were seated in the back room because the... More

Willie Bird's is an old time favorite in Santa Rosa. The restaurant was decorated for the holidays. We stopped for lunch and had the Willie Bird Special. We enjoyed salad, turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, cranberry sauce, and Ice tea. Service was pleasant. We have gone here a number of times as we like their turkey.

What a fun place!! Real, traditional and tasty Thanksgiving meal available all year long. They have other very yummy down home items available too. Definitely worth a try.

"You got to see it to believe it" - classic old-style bar and restaurant serving classic sandwiches, salads, and of course, turkey dinners with all the fixings. Try their healthy options: grilled turkey steak covered in mushrooms, steamed veggies, and a salad - delicious.

Was on a road trip and we made Triple D's some of our stops, this was one of them. Turkey, turkey, turkey was interesting to see. Had turkey scallopini was very good and my husband had turkey steak and oysters which he enjoyed. Would recommend if you enjoy turkey.

From the outside, this place looks really dumpy, but if you like turkey, this place does serve Willie Bird turkey. It's very basic food, we thought the turkey was moist and all white breast meat. You can also order a turkey leg or any other kind of turkey. The inside of the restaurant is old and could use a remodel.... More
