My wife had a Coulotte steak that she claimed was perfection. I had a pasta dish that was so-so and so extremely hot I suspect it was micro-waved. From our experience, what they do well they do really well, which includes steaks, chops and other traditional American meat dishes.

The Willow was recommended by a friend because of the bar. We were considering a different restaurant in Sonora, but it had been a long day. We checked out the menu at the Willow and decided to give it s try. This is the off season and we were there a bit late. So we were the only patrons. We... More

We had heard this little restaurant was very good, so we gave it a try. The food was amazing. The service was slow, however; and, thus, the reason for a very good instead of an excellent review. Our server, Wendy, was very nice. I think we happened to go during their busiest time.

We made a trip to Jamestown to buy cookie cutters (a store there has over 1,000 of them) and were hungry for lunch. We went to Willows to give it a try. What a good choice! Excellent roast beef sandwich, loaded with tender prime rib, cheese, mushrooms, and peppers, grilled....also ordered soup and fried artichoke hearts. The service was great,... More

I would offer that unless you're a local, there's probably no good reason to visit. The food is fine, full service bar, but the interior is old and in need of refurbishing. Yes it's an old hotel/restaurant but that doesn't mean you don't brighten it for the times. The Willow burger is a solid choice but the coleslaw that accompanied... More

We loved the Willow Steakhouse, great ambiance and friendly staff. Steak was cooked to perfection and my husband had the halibut - he says the best halibut he has ever had. Great place for dinner on your visit to Jamestown

The prime rib was average. The filet was just OK and kinda tough. The vegetables were awesome and the baked potato was good with the condiments. Best place in Jamestown, but just average.

We ordered one salmon dinner, one bison burger, and house salad. Both were very good, the price was reasonable, and the service was excellent. I only recommend all sauces on the side, because we're on diets, and the dressings and sauces are very rich (although good). We'll be back for steak.
