GREAT Chicken but way overpriced...

We had their special. 1/2 chicken with various sides served Family Style. The sides were ok and the chicken was very good. The atmosphere was unique being located in an old farm style setting with tons of neat antiques all over the place and even a small museum. However $15 per person for what was... read more

Innocently 10 of us bought 4 pieces of chicken each but when the food came it was put on 2 platters of 12 making it only 24 pieces of chicken. I was with future in-laws and did not want to make a scene. I will never go to WFF ever again.

I love this place but this visit was the worse. The corn fritters, which have been outstanding for 40 years, were not very sweet and tasted very dry. The chicken, again the best around for years was as if it came off a pigeon. The wings were flat and the drumstick on the wing was not existent. You could barely... More

Yuck. Used to come here as a child but as an adult found the chicken to be soggy and without any flavor. It's a shame things have changed.

Had to find a place for a "haven't been together in over 20 years" work reunion, and it was a great choice. Have been coming here since my parents first took me here in the 1960's. The chicken, corn fritters, and bean salad are like old friends to me.

We have been going to WWF for years. We also used to get a lot of take out. On one take out order we noticed the pieces of chicken were significantly smaller. Thinking it was just an anomaly we return about a month later and found the same thing. They size of the chicken pieces are about 30-40% smaller than... More
