The Restaurant at The Willcox
The Willcox has received high honors for sustainability and is routinely recognized by Wine Spectator, Best Chefs of America and our community for our food, cocktails and staff. Come break bread with us. The experience is unpretentious and remarkably delicious.
Food was outstanding except for the desserts. My husband called the cheesecake “bland with a side of shoe polish”. My flourless chocolate cake was way too sweet and thick. Would of loved just a regular chocolate cake with a side of that yummy whipped peanut butter stuff :)
Rest of food was delicious and memorable!
The meal was great and I will go back on my next visit!
Great dinner at a great hotel!
Great service coupled with amazing food! This place is a rare find!
A bit of a rocky start with service, which improved. The food is delicious and portions are huge. We were staying at the hotel and didn’t bring a cooler. We could have easily eaten the chicken wings and penne bolognese for another meal.
The vodka martini we had in the bar before dinner was excellent!
A most excellent evening considering the adjustments required due to Corona. Our server, Natalie, was very enjoyable and attentive.
The CAB Filet is one of the best steaks we have ever had! Absolute melt in your mouth delicious! This place is so charming, a great place to celebrate a special occasion. Especially if you include one of their romantic packages and stay the night.
Terrific place, excellent food and drink, 5-Star service. Altogether, an amazing event.
Service was very attentive.
First time ghb oing and will return when moved to Aiken Full time. Ate Brunch and looking forward to tr ynn lunch and dinner
Thank you so much for your 5-star review! We will share this with the team to let them know to keep up the good work.
We wore our mask to the table. We’re seated somewhat close to the pools area, it was a beautiful home. Our server was amazing
We enjoyed the Korean wings(this is a large serving) so could have been a meal . My husband had a chefs choice ribeye and myself a lamb chop. Cooked to perfection . the dessert Cheesecake is a must. In the middle of a Pandemic this establishment has perfected adapting to it.
JazminP, We really appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with us. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Everything was great. We sat out by the pool (which was very nice) and had drinks, apps, and entrees. It was very private and relaxing. Will definitely make this a regular thing. It was our one year anniversary and they made us up a “happy Anniversary” card and even complimentary champagne.
Thank you so much for this 5-star review. We really appreciate you being a customer and helping to share the word about us. We’re here for you anytime.

Such a lovely, beautifully restored inn with a gracious staff. Our brunch was delicious. The only thing that we felt was lacking was the orange juice for the Memosas was from concentrate.
Fabulous experience! Table was waiting for us when we arrived. Tables adequately far apart. Lamb t bone tender and yummy. Scallops tender with flash seared crust. Highly recommend.
The service is outstanding. The food is good. Always a good experience.
Always exceptional food and beverages at the Wilcox, served with class! Creative Chef,
Relaxing meal. Great service.
Wonderful food and service for Mother’s Day brunch!
My husband had a steak that melted in his mouth and my scallops were fresh and tasty!
The chicken pate was the best best best ever!!!!!
And so were the cosmos!!!!
We throughly enjoyed our evening there and will go back!
Excellent food and atmosphere. Service was top notch and no rush to enjoy the meal and evening
A scrumptious lunch in a luxurious setting. We went to Aiken for a meeting that was held at the Wilcox. Having never been there, we decided to have lunch before the meeting and were delightfully surprised. I had a delicious bowl of sausage, lentil and escarole soup while my husband enjoyed smoked brisket over cornbread with perfectly poached eggs. Service was on point but not fussy. The menu, quality of food, service and atmosphere were all enough to have the Wilcox on our list of places we will definitely return!
Had a wonderful brunch with friends I havent seen in a while. Full disclosure, I manage a restaurant, so on my days off I'm a yoga pants and sweatshirt kind of gal. I knew the restaurant was nice, but I go out on Sundays with zero concerns about my attire. I usually brunch at finch or bonefish, so I'm aware of how the normal brunch crowd looks. When I got there, I was taken aback by house beautiful it was, and immediately embarrassed by how I was dressed. No worries from any of the service staff. They treated me like any other customer. On top of it all, I had my five year old with me. I know service crews, especially on a finer-dining level, may cringe at the sight of a child, but not here. Our server, I wish I could remember her name to give her the shout-out she deserves, was so kind, and so patient with my daughter. She brought out the coloring sheet, and offered some tips on playing tic-tac-toe. Again, this was brunch- the meal for people who enjoy good food, but also have small children. Dinner service may have different vibes.
I started with the winter salad. Simple and delicious. Perfectly dressed. I had the filet for my entree. I'm not certain exactly how I envisioned the egg tostada side. I suppose I wasnt expecting it to be crunchy, and layered. I wasnt exactly sure of the proper way to eat it, but I did and it was fantastic. At the risk of sounding unrefined, I'd describe the side as "breakfast nachos." Coffee was fantastic, and service was polite and friendly without being too obtrusive. Loved it.
We had such a wonderful brunch at The Willcox! The atmosphere is so cozy and beautiful, the food and drinks were sublime, and the service impeccable (shout out to our fabulous server, Ebony). I loved the pianist and wood-burning fire, and the complimentary valet service is a wonderful addition due to the limited parking available nearby.
I will definitely be back and highly recommend.
There was a mixup with our order which meant we didn't get our entrees at the same time. (20 minutes apart) The wait staff was extremely apologetic and management comped one meal so that wouldn't stop me from going again as the food was outstanding and ambience incredible.
Waitress was excellent. All in all, food was good and hot when served. My only bad mark would be the crowd at the bar. Hard time getting around and through crowd to use restrooms. Valet service very good.
Very nice experience. Comfortable. Good drinks. Fair wine list with good prices. Food was good not great.
new menu was delicious, atmosphere is lovely and our server was fabulous.
Next to my mother's house, this is my favorite place to visit when I'm in Aiken. Recommended.
The atmosphere, service and food were all excellent and we cannot wait to go back!
The food was good but the waiter should have told us the butcher cut was $88. It tasted great, well seasoned but Wow, it was not Wagyu. There are plenty of great things on the menu that I’m sure I would have enjoyed just as much had I known. The fire alarm went off for most of the meal, that was rather annoying but clearly out of the staffs’ control as they were working on getting it turned off. Overall great night, good service. Bar drinks were outstanding!
Great Christmas Eve pre-fix menu. Food was so good, served hot and outstanding options. Festive environment too!
Wonderful experience at Christmas Eve. We love everything about the Willcox.
We ended up waiting 15 minutes for a table even though we had reservations. Several parties without reservations were sat before us. We then waited for any drink including water for almost 20 minutes. We had to flag someone down just to get water. After that the service improved and the meal was good.
