Being in town for business I checked out Trip Advisor for ideas. The Wilcox building is a beautiful historic stunner. It is in the grand southern style. As for the smaller bar area, it reminded me of a old extremely private country club's bar. As...More

This is one restaurant that has dinner on a Sunday night. It is very elegant from the outside and very masculine on the inside. Most guests sit in the lobby by the fireplace and enjoy drinks, or sit at the bar. Leather, wood paneling, chandeliers,...More

Stayed at the hotel, so ate here several times by choice! Dishes included: fall salad with house-smoked salmon, lovely balance of salty & sweet beets/squash/dressing, sake PEI mussels - good, shrimp/grits - all this deliciousness in a little bowl and I don't even like grits....More

The Willcox is a fabulous hotel but the restaurant misses the mark in so many ways. It's just not what you would expect at such a fine hotel. It took 45 minutes to get our starters. Obviously, our server forgot to put our order in...More
