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.

“Old Charm Good Food...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

Wills Fargo restaurant is in an old stagecoach station/house that is well decorated and sets a nice atmosphere. The mixed drinks are strong, and there is a very extensive wine list, however none of the wines on the list are for those who prefer the sweeter side of the whites (Rieslings). All who ate were happy with their meals. Expect to spend per meal not including drinks and dessert anywhere from 29 - 38 per plate. The desserts crème brulee and fondant were also good. Service was exceptional. Due to atmosphere as well as price, this is not a venue that I would recommend for people to bring small children. A family had done just that but luckily we were at the end of the meal and heading out when the child started having a tantrum.

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

We had my sister's wedding rehearsal dinner here. Our party had the entire outdoor area and it was beautiful!!! There was a nice fire and heaters and the food was fantastic!!! The side dishes were great, and the main course was a huge portion size. Everyone had a great time and the wait staff was super nice also :)

“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.
