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...

Every time we travel to Winston-Salem for a "relaxer" we make our way to Willows. Kind of annoying in a way as we don't get to try different venues, but we simply like it here too much to bother. Food is good, location good, vibe is great. Nothing here not to love.

Had dinner there on July 2nd and while ambiance and server we're exceptional, that's where it stopped. I review of the menu, server advised they were out of way too many entree options for a holiday weekend. Substitutes were sub-par and had little to no seasoning. Ordered the Sangria pitcher for our drinks and couldn't believe the amount of ice... More

went here because I needed organic food. Well the menu changed and I was a little disappointed as the organic chicken on original menu was 14$ the "special" which had no price listed turned out to be $30 and I thought that was a tad overpriced. It was delicious but still a hefty price. The other two dinners were on... More

Very impressive rotating menu and the service couldn't be better. This historic building has been transformed into a retro-modern restaurant with a cozy atmosphere and professional decor. We like that each time you go, there is something different and most-importantly, you can always count on it being fantastic.

They were out of Applewood Bacon which is a major ingredient in their dishes. Prices on the dinner menu were rather high in the $20- mid $30. There prices were lower on-line. I wound up having a burger and sweet potato fries which was actually only $9.

I've been here several times. This restaurants has one of the more creative menus in town and the execution of the food is usually pretty good. The ingredients are fresh and paired nicely, especially since the "chef" of the restaurant never seems to be there. My last visit I had the PEI mussels. This is one of the best preparations... More
