I often eat here for lunch. You can choose to eat outside or inside and the servers are friendly and helpful. I love their grilled salmon salad and also the shrimp risotto and have never had a bad meal here.

My husband and I traveled to Winston-Salem for the day for medical appointments at Wake. Willows Bistro is an easy and quick drive from the medical center. Friendly staff and Gluten free options denoted on menu, clean and relaxing atmosphere. Outside seating options available. Appear to have good beverage options, including a few GF ciders. I enjoyed the salmon (wild)... More

Just happened to remember this restaurant on a Saturday night and thought we'd try to get in...it worked! Had the "least favorite" table in the place but we didn't mind. Excellent and friendly waiter! Food was very good too. My husband who hates beans ate every bit of his succotash....of course it was underneath fried chicken! My seafood pasta dish... More

my favorite is the fried green tomato BLT sandwich with goat cheese. It is all good. My wife likes the hickory-smoked pork ribs.

Good food, but small portions and a little over priced. It seems to be a "hip" or strives to be anyway, place including a waitress who waited on us covered with tattoos and piercings. Not my cup of tea.

Spur of the moment decision while waiting on our room to be ready at Brookstown Inn. There were able to seat us rather quickly and offer an amazing menu of farm fresh and organic choices. I had the bacon cheeseburger with fresh cut fries. Ordered it well done and it still had pink in it. I Will definitely visit again... More

Server was awesome. Very helpful. We definitely ate late so I totally get that they would be out of some things. But my son ordered the steak and it was missing the veggies. I ordered a veggie entree with puff pastry it was good not amazing but good. We ate outside which was nice but needed a candle because we... More

We had visited Willows several times. And had fallen off so we took it out of the "line up". On a whim we tried it again and it was fantastic. Thank you for all of the changes.

Great service, excellent menu and the food was quick to the table. I chose the Chicken Salad Sandwich & homemade potato chips (I highly recommend) and my husband enjoyed a Fried Green Tomato BLT w/Goat Cheese, YUM-O and hand cut fries! Pleasant environment and overall fun! Our server was new but she was awesome. I don't think you will be... More

Reservations on a busy Saturday for a party of 10. Table ready upon arrival. Server was exceptional. Diverse selection of entrees and nice wine selection with very reasonable prices. Enjoyed two appetizers shared amongst the entire party. Plentiful with leftovers. Different entrees enjoyed by each of us. All cooked perfectly and the portion sizes were nice. In addition to the...
