Old-fashioned steakhouse and
Old-fashioned steakhouse and saloon with vegetarian and non red meat options. Very friendly service. Everything is delicious. It has a real local cowboy feel to it. We didn't eat outside but saw that there are tables in a garden and people were out there. Good desserts. Generous portions and reasonable prices.

Outstanding food and service!
Outstanding food and service! On the advice of our waitperson we had the Ribeye and it was incredible. The Fennel Leek Soup and Portobello Mushroom stuffed with Spinach and Feta were also a highlight for the evening. Definitely a "do-again".

Our party of 4 found the food to be good but not exceptional. Steaks for 2 of us and lamb chops for the other 2. Our waiter was excellent.

Off the beaten path for a great mea
We went as a group of four, so we were able to try a nice variety of variety of things, and all had a great evening. We ate inside, but we've been in the lovely garden patio before as well. Our server was personable, knowledgeable and attentive without being pushy or hovering. The food was all very tasty, and we liked having a full bar and good wine list. We topped it off with a fantastic chocolate dessert. Next time we're going to go before our reservation time, to have a drink at the cool old-timey bar before dinner.

Just the Right Stuff
Found Wills Fargo in Carmel Valley Magazine and so glad we did. There is a reason Wills Fargo has been around for 50 years, the food was mouth watering and the service great. It is casual yet eloquent all in one. Just a great place to enjoy a wonderful

Good food & wine
I haven't dined at Will's Fargo in years because I live in Jackson, WY now. The wine list is dominated by local wines from Bernardus, which is essentially this restaurant's parent company. The wines are pretty good & it seems they have a sommelier on staff at all times, maybe. Our server, Brandon, was excellent at wine pairing and advice about what to order. The interior has a rustic cabin feel and there's a courtyard for outdoor dining. It's very cool. My only complaint would be the martinis; they weren't nearly as cold as I think they should be. Pretty minor all things considered. Have some wine instead. The selection is pretty amazing. The food's good as well. Sweet breads aren't available at many restaurants, and it's excellent here.

Stil l Love It..after 20 years
Been coming here since you could pick out your steak from the meat counter bfore you sat down. (Over 20 years ago) Don't do that anymore but the steaks are still superb. And their avocado salad dressing is to die for. Highly recommend it for a great dinner in a relaxing, quiet atmosphere.

We enjoy very visit!
The menu is simple and straight foreword. I love getting the veggie plate as soon as your seated. I loved my ribeye cooked perfect and the potato was just as good. My husband had a burger and enjoyed it as well. We love coming here as we only live in Monterey but, this place makes us feel as if we were worlds away from home. Hats off to the chefs and waitstaff.

This place was great! I love to try new foods or fancy foods , but I hate the stipulation of the stuffy attitude that comes with it. Will's was not stuffy. You should make a reservation, we did & it was a good thing we did. As far as price, one should expect about $30.00/plate. Portions are on the smaller side but because you get really good bread, anti pasta and large delicious salads before the entree, you won't leave hungry. My husband and I were worried that the dress code might be super dressy and we were wrong. Both of us wore dark jeans, button up shirts and dress cowboy boots. We were both comfortable and fit right in with the crowd. I wouldn't recommend anything more casual than that however.

Except for the fish, the food was very good, the service friendly and attentive. The room was rather dark for those over "50" reading & the fish, we could smell & wasn't fresh. So either the fish was too long in the fridge or the supplier sold the chef a fish that was on the "edge". We should have sent it back so it's our fault for not doing anything at the time. We all are in the culinary field & understand the work & effort that goes into running a restaurant. We will return as we have over the past 30 yrs & have enjoyed dining there in the past with good memories.
