“Disappointment”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

If you enjoy rude staff, waiting 5 minutes at the bar on a Wednesday for an over priced drink and enjoy dealing with what appears to be the "regulars" who seem to be running the place you'll have a great time here. Make sure you try the poor to at best average cuisine but don't be surprised if your disappointed.

“Historic location, GREAT food & staff, and just a fun place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

How can you not enjoy Willhoite's? it is in a fascinating historic building in downtown Grapevine (TX), the staff is professional and wonderfully friendly, and the food is southern, down-home, and very reasonably priced. Their lunch buffet is around $9 and is includes dozens of salads, veggies, meat dishes and desserts and worth much more than the $9! And, oh yes, it IS a bar and the bar staff and drinks are worth the stop even if you don't want to eat. The ambiance - cool! You'll always see a mix of business people, bikers, young, older - all just enjoying this no-pretense watering hole and eatery. And beyond what they offer to the customers is what they give back to the community. I am sure they are involved in many initiatives but I personally deliver meals for Metroport Meals on Wheels, which are provided by Willhoite's. Each time I pick up the deliveries, the kitchen staff is helpful and wonderful, the folks always tells me to wish my clients well, and often get an iced tea to take with me from the bar lady who calls it "our thank you for delivering". How can you not make a place like this your favorite?? Daniel
