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.

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
