Big Portions

A nice family restaurant, but be warned, their portions are big. Then again, that is a good thing. I had the chicken picata, and the sauce and capers were proportions perfectly. There were two chicken beasts on a bed of pasta. They give you your choice of pasta which is a nice touch. Over all... read more

It had been quite some time since my wife and I had eaten at Williams. We went with my folks and my brother and sister in law and the food was great. They sat us earlier than our reservation, the waitress was attentive, the food was hot and tasty. Will go back! Really the only negative was the noise. It... More

Outstanding service… attentive and friendly wait staff. Good food with substantial portions. Sensational drinks. Made for an enjoyable night out, although entertainer should sing about three octaves lower (when he did, was great). Will visit again.

I always get the turkey club sandwich here because it's really good. Clean place, slightly outdated and could use more windows to brighten up the interior. Service is always good. Drinks are always good.

Don't let the outside be a negative factor for going in. Food is fair and expensive but the staff is friendly and professional. We eat there a few times a week because there comfort food is above average (like burgers, chicken park, etc.). Atmosphere needs updating and the specials are not creative enough.

We were heading to the Texas Roadhouse and I said I wanted onion soup, Williams has the best onion soup...My husband asked "why do you like Williams so much" my answer, I have never had a bad meal there. So we went and the food was fantastic!!!! We both had their onion soup which is delicious. The onions are cooked... More
