Cozy, comfortable! A treasure downtown.

I love the food, the staff makes you feel very welcome. It has become a tradition in my family to take everyone there when they visit. Good place for lunch as well.

Service was slow... very, very slow. Lamb Stew was flavorless ... was more like a Soup than a Stew. Soda Bread tasted like week old bread, reheated in a microwave. Totally UN-appetizing . Only good part of our visit: a cup of Lady Grey Tea.

After a satisfying surfeit of seafood by the seashore, Italian lunches, and hearty breakfasts with a double side of Southern hospitality, it was a refreshing change to visit Willows. As mentioned in other reviews, the dining area was light, spacious and "British". The menu was a little different, with offerings such as unusual teas, Bangers & Mash, Ploughman's Lunch and... More

A tea room which replicates the real thing in Britain. great service and choices of all day lunches, snacks and "Light Bites", sandwiches and properly made teas - they provide a small sand hour glass set to let you know when the tea is ready. A great experience I would recommend to anyone especially those Brits visiting the area. They... More

My mom and I like to come here for lunch. It is a nice place to come for a leisurely dining experience. We sip tea, talk, watch the world go by outside and relax. You can have a nice light meal and still have room for a pretty dessert. If you've never been to a tea room, this is the... More

The ambiance of Willows is to die for---I would worry about anyone who didn't smile at first glance of it. The staff was another matter when a coworker and I tried it for lunch on a weekday that they were about half full. After sitting unattended for a few minutes we ordered the special from the chalkboard. A bit over... More

My grandma told me about this restaurant because she knows that I love hot tea! It was such a fantastic experience. I ordered the egg salad sandwich, my grandma order two scones, and we got 3 pastries! All the food was delicious, but our waitress forgot to brew our tea until after we had our food! But she apologized and... More

I have enjoyed tea rooms in many parts of the country and this is one of the most darling. The children's area with books about tea parties, the ambience, the everything British. What a gem for Panama city and its quaint downtown.

I did not expect to find a British tea room in downtown Panama City, Florida - but how delighted am I that I did! My husband is not one for tea, so he came with me out of love not out of passion for china teapots. He loved it! I had the tea and little bites, he had a sausage... More

I stopped in on the recommendation of a local. It was the perfect spot for a light afternoon snack and cool break while browsing the local shops. I ordered a Devon cream tea which consists of two scones and a pot of your choice of teas. (The shop offers full meals as well.) I had plain scones with Devon cream... More
