Excellent food in a small town

The Willow Tree is a casual upscale restaurant with a nice menu and good food. The atmosphere is of a more urban setting, but somehow it works in the small mid-western town of West Branch. Lunch and dinner menus available. Will definitely return.

I have gone to the Saginaw Willow Tree location and am impressed each time! Fabulous and friendly service. Their spinach/bacon side salad is so tasty, I get it each time. And you don't want to miss their Saganaki!

Not being mean but restaurants like this just don't exist in mid michigan. The food is great and the setting is beautiful. If you're in town this is the place to go.

The price is... More

I ordered the Lava Rok grilled Yellow Fin tuna entree with a side of raw asparagus (available by special request at the suggestion of our waiter). The meal was wonderful and because I cooked each bite before I ate it, my meal was warm from beginning to end. The menu is extensive, the portions generous and the service very pleasant.

My wife and I have come here a few times, and we have fully enjoyed ourselves every time. The staff was genuinely nice, the food was great, and the selection was great as well. I feel the prices are a little high for the area, but still worth it.

So many choices. Excellent food and staff. Would definitely recommend to others. The brunch was a fantastic value, only $13.00. Beautiful and relaxed atmosphere.

No matter what you order, it will be some of the best food, in that category, you will ever eat. The staff is very professional and friendly, and make each table feel like it is their "special" table.
