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 Clean place, slightly outdated and could use more windows to brighten up the interior.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.

So we went and the food was fantastic!!!! We both had their onion soup which is delicious. The onions are cooked... More

I've taken my family to eat at Williams several times and walk away disappointed every time. The atmosphere is truly outdated, and the menu boring. The food tastes prepackaged and frozen. I can get that at home my tossing a frozen pizza in the oven.

I absolutely love Williams. I have been a customer here for over 20 years. I love their new updated decor. The Gardner portraits really give off a cozy vibe. The staff is excellent--very friendly and fast service. Their food is delicious--no doubt the best around town. Mondays and Tuesday, they offer free wings, which I love!
