We had heard about the Willow Tree in West Branch on a piece done for TV. Had often talked about stopping in and the opportunity finally presented itself. The selections and portions were excellent, Velma was very knowledgeable and helpful with the menu. We look forward to another fine dining experience at the Willow Tree.

My wife and I stopped by hear on our way north because of a friends recommendation. The only thing at the West Branch exit is fast food. The first time was dinner and this time it was for lunch. The prices are great. Lunch was $10. and the food and service is super. The owner even stopped by to ask... More

Went to the Willow Tree for Sunday brunch while traveling through West Branch. It was nice to get off the beaten path to find this little gem. We were greeted by the Chef and seated next to the fireplace. Large selection on the brunch buffet as well as cooked to order omelettes!

After waiting almost 11 minutes to be acknowledged by the server, Velma appeared telling us that we were not in her section but she could take care of us anyway. OK Velma! No , "thank you for your patience; we apologize"- nothing. . That started our evening. Ordered appetizer; great. When we were ready for a second cocktail, no Velma.... More

Stopped in on our way to the U.P. to visit our son. I had the spinach salad with chicken and my husband had the French dip - very tender and tasty. The atmosphere was relaxing and fine dining appearance but affordable pricing for lunch. Much better then stopping at fast food place!

It is a bit of a drive for us so we only eat here a few times a year, but it is always very god food and service. Last night was as expected, very good. My wife had the bacon wrapped shrimp starter served on a stack of onion rings- very good but maybe a little too much BBQ sauce.... More

Whenever we head north in Michigan, we plan our trip around making a stop for a great meal at the Willow Tree Restaurant in West Branch. The menu is large and varied, with something for everything, and we've never had anything less than delicious food and good service. So delicious that we literally drive out of our way for it!...

Great food! The best escargot in a puff pastry. Everything was delicious. The restaurant is decorated beautifully with a cosmopolitan flair.

Chef Tony pours himself into his creations and the lamb shank that I have savored twice this summer at Willow Tree Restaurant is no exception. The perfectly-seasoned meat literally falls off the bone and is tender and moist. Chef Tony's seasoning of this sublime entree is worthy of the highest praise, which is offered freely, without reservation. Great atmosphere and... More
