Restaurant was closed. Apparently restaurant forgot to inform Open Table.
The restaurant was CLOSED for the season!!! But Open Table still took a reservation!!! Waste of a night!!!
Great location....excellent drinks & menu
The bathroom is nasty
We didn't order food. We only stayed for drinks. Just get us drinks was 20minutes.
We haven't been here it a while and decided to try it again.
Now we have been here twice in eight days.
Food was excellent! Tried their french onion soup and it is one of the best in
We had the French onion, the caprese salad and the Billy K’s pizza. All were excellent. We will definitely be back.
Great experience, had to wait a bit for our table (patio), hostess and manager were so gracious, treated us like very valued customers. Food and sunset were terrific, best patio in Buffalo.
It was nice, but we were there at 5pm. The sun was really bright. It was warm and hard to see the river.
Food was phenomenal!!
Beautiful sunny day on the water!!
Unfortunately, they were not prepared for a crowd, one waiter to cover both indoors and outdoors,
He was clearly overworked, but maintained a positive attitude, shame on management for leaving him alone.
Over all great food and service with the best patio in Buffalo
William Ks is one of our favorite places to dine in Buffalo. The view and the seating on the lake is fantastic! The best place to catch a sunset over Lake Erie and the food is always spectacular!
A great experience, the food was all excellent, the service was great and the entire staff was pleasant and accommodating. Took my parents for their anniversary and everything was exceptional.
Good location and excellent service. The food was average at best and the environment loud from activities at the bar.
Great place to celebrate my two son in laws birthdays!!
My only suggestion would be to butter and grill the lobster roll!
Has become one of our favorites. Best view in Buffalo. Friendly service; The Menu is now creative and more extensive than 1-2 yrs ago. The kitchen can get overwhelmed (slow) at busy weekend hours.
My wife and I enjoy it almost weekly including the friendly bar (Matt is a master)
Ambiance was beautiful. Food was blah. Our appetizer came out in a few minutes, before our drinks. It was the coconut shrimp. It was way over cooked and has no coconut taste. I’m betting they were sitting from another table? We sent them back. The salads were ok. Food was just overall blah with no real flavorful punch. It was a pricey dinner for not much to be impressed with.
Food was good and the view was excellent. The only downside was parking is not easy.
Server was very inattentive from the get go-magnified by the fact that I could see her hanging out with other servers inside, looking at their phones. Water took 25 minutes to get to table, food was finally ordered after that. Calamari and fries were both under done and under seasoned. I was physically tired from sawing at my tough NY strip steak; special instructions for another dish ignored; Cobb salad was saddest I’ve ever seen-brown lettuce and anemic vegetables in the height of summer. There are waaay too many good restaurants in Buffalo to put up with this sub par of an experience-water views or not.
This was our first visit and we would return. Having mapped out our menu choices in advance, we stuck with our plan and had 1/2 dozen fresh oysters, beet salad and mushroom pizza along with a bottle of red wine recommended by the waitress. Everything was very good and not too expensive. And the view of the sunset over Lake Erie was beautiful. Service was also very good.
Food and view of the sunset were awesome. service was not very good. Very slow, frazzled and inattentive. We had to ask to have our server come over to take our order, we had to ask for bread and for more water and for the check. Our server and her helpers seemed overwhelmed. The hostess was very nice. Food 10/10. Service 5/10. We’ve been several times before and we’ll be back - for the food and sunset.
Max was an awesome waiter, very attentive. It was a little loud outside because the table next to us had a large party, but we made the most of it. My only complaint was there was only one bathroom for all. For such a classy place this was a turn off.
Birthday dinner for daughter
Made a reservation for 7:30pm, when we arrived we were told it would be a 15-20 min wait, which we were ok with. Sat at the bar to grab a drink, we did not get sat at our table until 8:30 pm. We ordered 2 more drinks and an appetizer as soon as we sat down. We then ordered 1 meal for the 2 of us that took 45 min to come out. Very disappointed for our first visit to the restaurant
My first visit to William K’s. They had an interesting menu selection but unfortunately the food did not live up to our expectations. My friend had pasta carbonara which was bland. I had a very nice tomato gazpacho (daily special) which came with a hot breaded deep fried piece of mozzarella. The cheese was good, but a little heavy to accompany a chilled soup. A smaller piece would have been more than sufficient. The margarita pizza from their wood fired oven was good, but non-descript. We really enjoyed the view while dining on the waterfront patio but the food was a bit of a letdown. I would recommend this as a good place to come for a drink by the water.
The view was amazing, the service by Max was attentive and excellent and the food was fantastic. Thank you Max for letting us enjoy the evening at our own pace. Thanks to the chef for such great food and everyone else that made thins evening fantastic
I will be honest I was worried reading previous reviews but decided to try it out for myself. Everything from the view, the drinks the food and even the service was great. The servers made sure everyone sitting outside was comfortable and the view was perfect. I enjoyed a whiskey sour with surf and turf and then another whiskey sour. I will be going back for sure!
Great view, food was good. Our servers was very friendly and prompt
What a disappointment. Our server was horrible and a shame that he was actually training another server! The food was just okay. Such a beautiful view. Unfortunately that is the only nice thing we can say about our experience
Overall a great experience. Don’t order the lobster roll unless you like heavy mayonnaise.
Don’t risk the food on Monday evening! First attempt on our entree served us a well done and tasteless steak ordered medium rare. The drums accompanying the lobster Mac were bloody. We sent the steak back and the second try was excellent, however, the waitress replaced the drums with a chicken breast that came out raw in the middle and required a third try.
Went for breakfast and food was burnt, and sever was more worried about cell phone then the one table he had. Need to try for dinner. To be fair they only do breakfast once a week.
Limited special menu, no prices - food was good but not for the price.
Nice place. However the OpenTable system would not allow a reservation for 5 or more, No Tables Available.
I selected party of 4 and got any time I wanted. Must be a an OpenTable problem because the place was empty.
Service was excellent, craft cocktails were unique and very tasty. We were blown away by the food. The special pasta dish and fish were out of this world. Highly recommend a visit.
Went there with my wife son & grandson. Great place best view in all buffalo. Great food great drinks great atmosphere. If in buffalo again I would go again
We had an amazing meal with great service! Arguably the best view in Buffalo.
Food was delicious and inventive. I'd highly recommend this restaurant to friends and family, especially for a sunset!
Lovely dinner for Restaurant Week. DJ our server was a delight. Mushroom pizza delish! The mesclun salad was so tasty, the grapes made it perfect!
