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.

    The Willcox is our favorite restaurant in Aiken. The food is always excellent, especially the Brussels sprouts. My goodness, they are great. Our server, Jason was attentive, but not overt. We recommend the Willcox to anyone!

    Our server was excellent and the food was very good. The old hotel ambiance was charming but somewhat dated. Overall the Wilcox is a “must visit” when in Aiken.

    No complaints about the food it was excellent. I would have thought the service would have been better in a place like the Wilcox. To be fair our server told us she was new and that's okay, but management should have ensured she was fully trained. Little things like removing the menus and wine list from the table after ordering. More knowledgeable about the menu. When the food was served we were not offered the fresh ground pepper that other tables were. No water refill. Just little things that separate this from a five star experience. I will continue to go to the Wilcox but maybe just for the bar and not the dining room.

    I took my hubs to the Wilcox for Father’s Day and it was wonderful. The food was delicious, I asked for a Bloody Mary and he asked for an Old Fashioned and they were both sooo yummy. Last but not least, our server Winston was great! We will certainly be back!

    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.
