I have been going to the Wilcox restaurant since I moved to Aiken almost 5 years ago. The food is always fresh, interesting and many layered complex dishes with a wonderful southern twist. If you are looking for a white tablecloth restaurant with exquisite food, beverage and impeccable service with a lot of history, the Wilcox is for you! Highly... More

I didn't eat in the restaurant, but I ordered room service two nights in a row and it was excellent. I had muscles in a delicious fennel broth and a goat cheese soufflé that was out of this world. The second night was a perfectly balanced spinach salad with cucumbers, avocado and a tangy dill dressing, followed by ricotta ravioli... More

We stopped at this stately hotel twice, once for dinner and once for drinks. The service both times was friendly and timely. I thought the dinner menu was a little sparse. I was going to have soup and an appetizer, but one of the specials finally got my attention. The corn soup was delicious, probably the most tasty I have... More

This was a birthday dinner for my wife and it was outstanding. The Parisian and Mojito were thirst quenching pre-dinner drinks. The goat cheese soufflé was absolutely delicious as was the Chef's Pork Loin Prime Rib Butcher Cut Special. Don't miss the Churro and Spanish Coffee for dessert...you can't go wrong. Ryan, our server was quite attentive and very helpful... More

The Wilcox is a gem. The hotel itself is over one hundred years old and built in neo-colonial style. The restaurant is fairly small so best to make a reservation. The menu is varied but the food and services are both always good.

We had dinner one night during our stay at the restaurant and the level and quality of service and food was incredible. The Sunday brunch was also an incredible experience.

My wife and I ate at The Willcox to celebrate our anniversary and we were both very satisfied with the food and service. The calamari was perfectly seasoned and had great texture. Both the filet and NY strip tasted good. The atmosphere of the hotel and restaurant was the best part though. Very classy and southern but in a casual... More
