The selection of items on the brunch buffet is excellent. The omelets are made to your preference and are very tasty and delicious. There are also waffles with strawberries and cream, as well as many lunch items. A very nice selection at a reasonable price.

My husband ordered a special as well, Filet Mignion with portobello and special cheesy, thinly sliced potatoes. Both meals were fabulous. You won't get better service anywhere. It appeared that...

I visit Northeastern Michigan each fall and always make it a point to have at least one meal at the Willow Tree Restaurant in West Branch. The food and service are always outstanding with a very inventive menu. Thanks for providing such fine cuisine in Northeastern Michigan.

Unfortunately neither of us cared for... More
