Description: Will's Fargo Steakhouse and Bar became a landmark steakhouse in 1959 and has been a peninsula favorite for over 55 years. Entering Will's is stepping back into a time when fine food and service were the rule, rather than the exception. An intimate courtyard patio offers seasonal outdoor dining. Will's also features an intriguing small saloon with a full bar that pours an honest drink and features a lighter menu, including such standards as salads, burgers, and other delectable items. Dinner from 4:30pm nightly. Indoor and outdoor seating available.

“wonderful classic old time resturant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

Come for the best meat, and fish dinners at this restaurant. We use to come with my grandmother Nanni Maiorana, the whole family around 12 of us at the time. It is just as delicious as it was 40+ years ago!
The prime rib is excellent. My husband and son go to prime time on Thursday on regular basis.
Service is always great.
They also have an outdoor patio.
The bar is authentic western, just the way I remember it.

“Nice but nothing special.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

Very dark wood on the inside making things, well dark. Food good, but nothing really stood out for two people. Prices good once again and reasonable.
Not much else to say. If in the area, probably would return but would not go out of the way to do so.

“Casual, noisey, carnivore haven”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Will's has recovered its reputation for hearty red meat under the culinary direction of Cal Stamenov (Chef of the nearby, and co-owned) Berardous Lodge luxury resort). It is, naturally, over-priced, but if you crave a well-prepared hunk of red-meat in a casual environment . . . .
Our experience was marred by an undersized table for four, over-cooked vegetables and a lukewarm baked fish special, inappropriate at these prices.
