This is a converted home that has good bones. The staff were nice, the food was decent. The atmosphere is the best thing about the establishment.

The only reason I gave this place a one is because it wouldn't let me rank it with a zero. Such a lousy experience. Our family was in town and decided to stop by for lunch. It was not busy at all. Both the inside and the patio were dirty. The high chair brought out for my daughter was filthy,... More

We had Lunch here and it was very good, the staff was a lot of fun. The Cocktails were made just right We enjoyed all the interesting facts about this place that the staff shared and we strolled around looking at the Original Staircase and other interesting artifacts. After we walked down to the Downtown area and found some really... More

It's a neat old building with a lot of outdoor seating. The inside is a bit confusing. When you walk in there are signs to seat yourself but it's a very small dining room. There are stairs leading up but not sure if guests are allowed upstairs or not. Not sure if there is more seating up there. There is... More

3 of us stopped at Willard Restaurant today (Sunday, Sept 11) for lunch, about 130pm. We sat outside since it is a beautiful day and most tables were occupied on the patio. After a long time (10-12 minutes), the server finally came to our table, apologizing for the wait. Unfortunately, that was the shortest wait. It took over 45 minutes... More

A nice resteraunt. Good indoor or outdoor seating. A great selection of craft beers both local and national. Cheap drinks. Sandwitches, burgers, salads and apps all very good. Service was great and prices were fair. If you want Crouk au vin you might look elsewhere.

We were passing through town on a Saturday evening and decided to grab a pizza for the road. We called it in and it was ready within 15 minutes! The pizza was hot, super cheesy, and flavorful. The crust was delicious and even made for a great snack the next morning. Easily one of the best pizzas I have ever... More

We stopped in for lunch on our way through, it was only a few minutes from the freeway and easy to find. The food was good quality American and the staff was very friendly. A great break from the freeway drive.

The Willard Restaurant had a cozy ambiance yet was group oriented as well as accommodating to the duo diners. The menu had a decent variety to choose from including some tasty appetizers. All of the food was delicious, my husband had the Reuben and I had the seafood sampler. We had the sampler appetizer and shrimp cocktail. My only complaint... More
