Had the prime rib which was cooked to perfection. Herb rub on the meat was superb. Odd entrance as you walk in and very dark inside. Quick, courteous service and huge servings. All this for under $20!

We've been to the Willow a few times for dinner and drinks. The bar has lots of very interesting history and decor and James the bartender is very nice. The restaurant is usually busy and food is good, but the servings are way too big and a little higher in cost than they could be if the servings were smaller.

We went there on Friday nt. July 30th with a large group on a motorcycle trip. I can't remember which menu choice we had but the Halibut, shrimp, and all other parts of the meal were great. Noone in our group could rave about any of the steaks. My NY strip steak was a bit tough, but was certainly edible.... More

Prepared the prime rib perfectly to detailed request. Great staff and owners. Long old time full bar. Located in downtown Jamestown with plenty of parking across the street.

Surprised to find that neither the food, service nor atmosphere had changed in a quarter of a century. A bit too touristy and impersonal but food was fine. Had a bad experience several owners ago (waiter tripped/poured soda all over my leather jacket and handbag; manager on duty initially assured me he would take care of cleaning bill, but when...

We had dinner at the Willow Steakhouse and were sat in the back room. This room was so dark we couldn't see our food when it arrive. I ordered the rib eye, medium rare. The steak was thinner than I would expect for a steakhouse, and since the room was so dark, I really couldn't tell if it was medium... More

Having had a long day in Yosemite we were ready for a hearty evening meal and that's what we got here. We hadn't booked but were given a choice of table and were soon enjoying a refreshing drink whilst we perused the menu. Steak and jacket for me and salmon with garlic mash for my OH. Both were cooked well,... More

Today I ate at The Willow Steakhouse and the steak was excellent. So tender and tasteful. I would recommend the Garlic Mash. The pints were good. If you have room in your stomach. Take a dessert! The waitress presents all desserts and my answer was: I take all please;) Cheesecake was supreme. The portion size is good. The setting of... More

We were traveling, with our 9 yo grandson, for 9 days in Central California; mostly visiting National Parks. This was by far the best meal of our trip! I had a steak, my wife had scallops and our grandson had fettuccini---all were excellent. The staff was also excellent. In addition, I left my credit card. I called the restaurant the... More
