I was a little surprised when we pulled up out front, just looks like an old pool hall/bar outside and in. We sat at the bar ordered our fish sandwiches and watched as the father / son duo cooked and served customers. Everything is homemade including the sauce for the cat fish sandwich - best I have ever had! Burgers... More

Great burger and fries, but gross place from a cleanliness standpoint. It's good enough that I have gone back a few time regardless of the cleanliness standards. I order out with a careless "outta sight outta mind mentality. I have never gotten ill from foodborne illness. I should clarify that I may be hypercritical of all dining establishments since I...

Let's just say the atmosphere is priceless. Old time pool room with the usual bar food. Everyone was very friendly and a lot of the locals frequent this place. Sits on a side street off the main drag in Versailles. Two TV's with sports on both. Chili dogs are good but you decide if it's worth $3.15 each. They were... More

Local color great bar food. Try the Willie Burger and get some fries. Eat at the bar or call for a carryout that can be picked up at the walk up window. Don't usually find kids here but you can get carry out and bring it home. Bar and pool tables have been a staple of downtown Versailles for some... More

The Pool hall has been around for decades. Great food and fresh never frozen burgers. I take my kids there all the time. They love sitting on the old fashion stools and eating their Shrimp plate..

Average pub fare. Decent cheeseburgers and fries. Pool tables and beer. Nasty bathroom. Owners are really nice people.

Fresh, hot griddle food that's good enough to wear. Fries you can't touch (thank you for hot fries) and a burger that puts all in town to shame. I've not experienced more than burger/fries/beer, but why else would you? They knock it out of the park. Visit this hometown fav now.

This is an old bar and pool room with a lot of history. It isn't the Ritz, but if you want a good honest hamburger, this is the place. Don't expect it very fast since they take their time and they do it right. I have sat and waited for twenty minutes, but it was worth the wait. Just sit... More

Old time Versailles at its worst. Mediocre hamburger (WillyBurger), frozen french fries, no refills on iced tea. First vist will definitely be lat.

…Have eaten at Wilson's Pool Room in Versailles many times over the years. Have been there when several UK basketball players were having "Willy Burgers" and chilli. There are daily lunch "specials" too. My favorite is the Willy Burger. The people are nice and it's also a good spot to teach a Son or Grandson the finer points of the... More
