My husband and I had Thanksgiving Dinner at the Willcox, and it was a very delightful event. There was a fire burning in the fireplace in the lobby as we entered, and a man was quietly playing a piano off to the side of the room. There was a carving station with turkey and pork roast, and the buffet had... More

All of the dishes had a chance to be great but got only halfway there. The waiter-suggested appetizer of schnitzel fries was a little dry, lacked a tad bit of seasoning and brightness. Adding a sprinkling of lemon juice and aioli on the side helped the dish quite a bit. The scallops entree was a half-miss as well. The scallops... More

A historic property located just outside of downtown Aiken, the restaurant in the lobby of this hotel serves as a charming, warm yet upscale restaurant offering seasonal menus and daily specials to ensure variety. There is also a bar offered in the lobby with ample comfortable seating for pre-dining socialization.

We went for brunch. The menu made us wish we had more tome so that we could go back for dinner. Delicious and inventive food served by staff who obviously like their job and transfer that to their clientele.

Enjoyed dinner here with friends. Great cheese plate for appetizers. Then enjoyed steak and scallops which were all prepared well and tasted great. Service was also very good. Mid-priced wine list was also well done

I was invited to attend my niece's wedding rehearsal dinner here. I really did not get to see much of the place but what I did see was beautiful. We were escorted into a private room for the rehearsal dinner. It reminded me of a Library because the décor gave you this nostalgic feeling. We were treated to a buffet... More
