Our kitchen enjoys an exceptional reputation built on the creative talents of our chefs. The menu is American, although our chef draws inspiration from his international travels. Whether you’re enjoying Southern breezes poolside, the cozy club setting of our lobby or relaxing in our dining room, rest assured that your meal is memorable and your service is prompt and cheerful.

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.

When booking your reservation please consider the bar booking is in our Lobby area, and that outdoor reservations are not guaranteed a table inside in the event of inclement weather.

    Thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience! Started with a lovely cheese board & bottle of wine. Portion size for my entree were double my expectations, and my husband made a meal from 2 items on their Lite Bites menu. I especially recommend for the equestrian enthusiasts or history lovers. Service was excellent - making us feel like an Astor or Vanderbilt.

    From greeting to leaving, the experience was top shelf. Our waiter, Bruce, was very professional and friendly, timely but not pushy. He made excellent suggestions and the food was absolutely perfect. Highly recommend the Wilcox.

    Our dinner celebrating my husband’s birthday was wonderful. We had a fairly new waitress who was informative and attentive for the most part. My husband had ordered wine to go with his entree but it wasn’t delivered until after his dinner was finished. Food was good and atmosphere relaxing.

    We hosted out-of-town guests for lunch at the Wilcox. Our guests were quite impressed with the lovely outdoor setting near the pool. I was disappointed with the service since our plates were delivered without silverware or napkins. We waited patiently for the needed items but I finally had to get up and seek out our server. We received our silverware and napkins at that time. I ordered the fish tacos and I felt like the fish needed seasoning and there was no salt or pepper on the table. At that point we were enjoying our visit with friends and I did not complain any further.

    Outstanding service and food. We visit Aiken annually and we always enjoy our evening dining at The Wilcox. Their steaks are so flavorful and tender. Great wine selections, salads and specials.
