Incredible food and unique atmosphere with outstanding service. Feels like a top metropolitan steakhouse in a small Michigan town. Don't miss it if you are in the area!

This is an impressive restaurant in Northern Michigan. World class menu, food and service. The very best with down to earth professionals taking care of you. We have eaten here several times and never been disappointed. Celebrated our 50th. wedding anniversary with fine wine, fine food and fine people.

We decided to eat at this restaurant based on the excellent reviews we read. The food was a plus but the funeral/elevator music out of the 1950's truly had a negative effect on the overall experience. My husband likened the atmosphere to being in "One Flew Over the Cuckoos's Nest" and said he kept looking over his shoulder for Nurse... More

On our drive to Torch lake we got off I-75 in west Branch for lunch. In our attempt to support local business we found The Willow Tree restaurant on Trip Advisor. Our server was very friendly and well informed on the numerous selections on the menu. Upon her recommendation we each chose a delightfully delicious and beautifully presented entree. The... More

Went to the Willow Tree for lunch since we happened to be in West Branch. We had the crab cake appetizer and we were surprised not only the large size of the crab cake, but also the excellent flavor. It was so good we ordered two crab cakes to go for later that night. For lunch we had the Shrimp... More

I have been to the Willow Tree in Saginaw and it was pretty good but everyone told me the one in West Branch was much better so we were in West Branch last Sunday and decided to stop. I ordered a 22 oz. porterhouse. Any steak of this size is usually is about 2" thick and covers most of the... More

Food aside, a family member asked the owner if they would contribute a donation for an American Legion golf outing. The owner stated they "do not support military causes." Being prior military and a proud American, I can no longer support this establishment.

Food choices and execution were excellent. I wasn't expecting to find a restaurant this good in a location like West Branch. If you happen to be spending the night in West Branch, treat yourself to dinner at the Willow Tree!

New menu requires an up charge for changing to a different side. My husband and I ordered filets did not want the side that came with it, switched spinach to asparagus, even though a la carte same price, resulted in a four dollar up charge. Side salad also up charge. Very expensive not worth the money. Eighty dollars no drinks.... More
