This charming Inn is our favorite place to have dinner. The atmosphere is classic. The food is delicious. Tell Matt "Butch sent me"

Had fish and chips. Nothing special. Service was okay. Just felt like the whole experience was a little "stuffy" and the restaurant and food is over rated.

Wilcox with its oak dinning room was the epitome of southern style. Excellent food and wonderful service with a decent wine list. Highly recommend this for that special night out.

In appearance it did not have the appearance of an upscale restaurant; in fact, just the opposite. Menu did not offer many choices. Prices very high. Food presentation and quality was not in keeping with a up scale eatery. Bill for four was over $100.00....More

The food was great and the ambience was even better for what one would expect a Lowcountry classic hotel to be like the martinis were excellent

As always excellent food and service. This is the only fine dining restaurant in Aiken with good quality and selection of foods. We prefer to sit in the Libby as it's a little less informal but the food is just as excellent.More
