Williams is a friendly neighborhood restaurant with an affordable and varied menu. The food and the service has always been well above average. There are a few TVs so you can watch a sporting event and there is keno to keep you entertained. It's easy entry for folks with mobility issues too. I usually get the salmon, but the rubens... More

This is what happens when you crave a meal and find it, but it is so disappointing! It is my own fault for wanting Coconut Crusted Fried Shrimp that I have such fond memories of from Warren's Lobster House in Kittery ME!! What a huge disappointment! This is what is so funny about it; the coconut crusted fried shrimp at... More

We go here occasionally the food is good but it varies in it being consistently good. Not a bad place by any means, service and pricing very good

They had a good menu selection and even a drink menu.. They serve you with house made bread which was warm and tasty, i started with a side salad... More

I have been going to Williams's for many years. They have a large selection of delicious items on their menu. I especially love their baked stuffed shrimp, fried sea scallops, and prime rib. I know I will be satisfied with my choice whenever I go there to eat.

I always like to try non-chain restaurants when I have the chance in the hope that I will find a gem. Williams is a little off the beaten path, and seems to be a favorite with the locals, so we took an early Valentine's Day meal there. I was pretty pleased with the food quality, and the portions were huge.... More

Always go here on the weekend and it is fairly busy. Food is good and service is excellent. My friends usually get the prime rib and I opt for the haddock. No complaints

We went out to Gardner to see "Retro Stew" - a fantastic band playing four part harmony classic rock! They are a phenomenal group! It was our first time, and I was very impressed with the entire place. I loved the knotty pine décor. The food was delicious, nicely presented, with generous portions and very reasonable. Our server, Michelle, was... More

Walked in on a Saturday night for dinner. By 5:30 the restaurant was almost full! The waitstaff and hostess were all very friendly and welcoming. The overall atmosphere is warm and mostly older couples or groups with children. I was very impressed with their drink menu... Lots of different types of cocktails to pick from. I ordered the lemon blueberry... More
