Don't miss the Coconut Cream Pie

This is the Old Willies restaurant. The owner is a transplant from NJ and does know about good Italian food. My wife and I enjoyed the food, the salad bar and talking with the new owner. I would recommend this to anyone who wants some good Italian food. The wife had the Baked Ziti special and... read more

Sorry this is the same type of restaurant, same food and the Garlic Knots are terrible! It is supposed to be twisted bread not a round piece of dough. I order the same food they had last time I ate here. They gave me my food first then my husband had wait about 15 min for his food because the... More

Add $2 more for spec. sauce,or meat balls,etc.(Very clever) to increase the price. Salad Bar I thought was better than when Willie had it. Penne dinners were Ave to Good. Had meatballs... More

Like other negative reviews, the food is tasteless, dry and extremely boring. Don't understand how any one could enjoy this food. I've given it three tries. Won't go back again.

Nice venue for getting out of town... The atmosphere is family friendly and the pricing is not overwhelming. The portions are generous, and we learned that many of their recipes are created in that kitchen. Doug and Jon, in the kitchen, are incredible. We look forward to our next trip!!

After driving by Willie's many many times and seeing how incredibly crowded they were, we decided to give them a try. The only reason I am giving them this rating is because they delivered on Christmas Eve, otherwise it would be lower. We had the grilled chicken hot Italian subs and fries. The chicken had no flavor and was extremely... More

They posted a special for BOGO breakfast so my husband and I decided to try it out. The menu had a good variety of options but no information on how to personalize your entreé. The #2 combo came with buttermilk pancakes so I asked what the charge would be to get the bananas foster pancakes and the waitress said she... More

I remember this place when it first open and the garlic knots were great! Now it is a shape of a dough ball and not a knot. It was missing a flavor in it and not fully cooked. Husband ordered Chicken Marsala and the gravy was not thick. It is a shame to see what happen to a restaurant that... More

Ate at Willie's at the previous location and really enjoyed the food. Definitely not the same. Service was good. Salad bar was forgetable. Bolognese was good. Ordered Italian Cream Cake and it was at least a few days old. Had a gift card and was told they couldn't get it to go through but they were able to run my... More

My husband and myself stopped at Willies 10/27. Apparently they have changed hands from what I heard through Facebook! The service and food was horrible! The waitress had a personality of a brick! Looking over the menu didn't offer sides and when asked the waitress about it she commented its the same as last time, umm are you serious!? She... More
