Excellent food with a nice atmosphere. We had the surf and turf with lobster tail. The steak was outstanding. We had the Saganki app which was very good. We took our two kids who had a cheeseburger and steak and both loved their meals. Highly recommend.

we had lunch here and it was fabulous! My husband had blackened salmon and I had the Cajun Chiken pasta. The meal was served hot! Wait staff was awesome! I would highly recommend! We drove about an hour to come here and it was so worth it! Prices are very reasonable and portion sizes are very nice.

We have a cabin about 30 minutes away & this is our Friday dinner on our way up to our place. The food is excellent & the staff is top notch. I recommend their Lobster Bisque to start, Spinach Salad with a delicious warm bacon dressing & Sea Bass for your entree. I've been coming here for about 5 yrs... More

My husband and I enjoy dining out and have had many exceptional meals. This may not be one of the best meals of my life, but it was truly excellent. Everyone at the table was impressed with their food. The atmosphere was great. The waiter was knowledgable and attentive without hovering. I highly recommend this restaurant.

My husband and I took our next-door neighbor from Bay City up to West Branch driving her car to charge the battery. My husband and I had eaten at this restaurant years before and enjoyed it so we decided to try it again. What a great choice!!! We ate from the lunch menu and had a great meal. The waiter... More

This is one of the best fine dining restaurants you'll find. Their food is delicious and presentation is also important for them. Their wait staff is the best. They are very helpful, friendly, and courteous.

I wouldn't waste my money; the food was okay but very over-priced. And the atmosphere is not cozy, it's stuck-up stuffy. I guess if you're a socialite it's the place for you. I'm just me, simple but real. I'll take a mom and pop diner over the Willow Tree...it's not for me.
