One of the nicest restaurants you'll find in Mid-Michigan with high end food and high end prices. Go there for special occasions but plan on spending $$ for the meal. Service is good and Ophelia and Tony are great hostess and host. Sunday brunch is the best--plenty of selections from the buffet line and have them create a great omelet... More

Over priced-left hungry after spending over $100 for just myself and spouse. We live local and have given them a try about once a year and are always disappointed. We are not even picky people! The high class establishment they portray is a farce; with only two other couples in the whole place we were asked if we had reservations,... More

Enjoyed going to the Willow tree in West Branch. It is a remarkable restaurant in northern Michigan. I had the opportunity to cook my meal (Filet Mignon) on 750 degree hot rock. Now you need some basic cooking skills to do this. But it is fun!! Maybe a little bit dangerous if you have small children. I strongly recommend trying... More

Excellent food, Excellent service This restaurant is consistently the best restaurant in central Michigan. But it is a little pricey. The appetizers - Tenderloin Marsala was great and Barbecue Bacon Wrapped Shrimp (a little too much BBQ sauce) was very good. For entrees my wife had Alaskan Halibut that came with a topping of shrimp and scallops that was fantastic.... More

Great food, service and atmosphere! We stopped in for lunch on our way up north. This is the second time we have stopped here because the food is so good and reasonably priced. The choices of lunch specials made it hard to choose!! We had the pan fried Grouper fillet served over garlic mashed redskin potatoes with sautéed vegetables. What... More

My wife & I were returning home from a trip to lower Michigan, and spotted this by using the amazing "iExit" app on my phone, which has helped us more than once in finding food & fueling stops off the interstate. Anyway, tho' it was getting later in the evening, we wanted more than fast food; and were soon accurately... More

Went there today with 10 other friends. We were planning on ordering off the menu, but on Sunday they have a brunch for $13 and it was delicious. They had an omelet station with at least 10 different items you could add to the omelet. In addition they has sausage, bacon, French toast, waffles and hash browns for breakfast. They... More

Décor for this place is great with also a lounge with a fireplace off to the far side of dinning room. Service and staff was great as the owner came out to introduce himself and asked "how is everything." This was a good eloquent dinning experience.

Thank Keiffer81
