We stopped here from visiting the folks over the holiday. Hungry, tired and grouchy we walked in and were treated very kindly by the excellent staff. They quickly brought us the amazing cheese board with several cheeses, olives and meats. Really excellent service also helped us relax and have a wonderful evening.

The pros: This restaurant has a nice menu selection, delicious food, amazing desserts and good service. It is pricey, but you get what you pay for. Cons: You have to walk through a crowded, slot machine filled, smokey casino to get to it. If you like to gamble, though, this is a good place to go. I live in the... More

We ate dinner for the first time at the Willows last week and it was absolutely the BEST restaurant in our area. We ordered the Surf & Turf with a 6 oz Angus Beef and Shrimp wrapped in bacon. I had the beef and Scallops. The steak was so tender you could have cut it with a fork.. the shrimp... More

We enjoyed every moment at this restaurant - we arrived early for a show in the casino. The wait staff was attentive, responsive, deliberate. Steak was cooked to perfection - the baked potato was the size of a small planet. Highly Highly recommended for anyone in the area.

Being it's in the back of the casino, the place is a hidden gem. The food was great. Good quality, fresh, great presentation, and tasty. The staff were very attentive, knowledgable, nice, and best service I've had in a while

Our family has been to Willows 4 times in the past 2 years and each visit was more amazing than the one before. Two years ago we actually got our own room for my dad's 75th birthday party and couldn't rave about the food enough. Last Thursday's meal for my husband's birthday was such a disappointment. I'm not sure if... More
