A historic property located just outside of downtown Aiken, the restaurant in the lobby of this hotel serves as a charming, warm yet upscale restaurant offering seasonal menus and daily specials to ensure variety. There is also a bar offered in the lobby with ample comfortable seating for pre-dining socialization.

We went for brunch. The menu made us wish we had more tome so that we could go back for dinner. Delicious and inventive food served by staff who obviously like their job and transfer that to their clientele.

The Willlcox is an historic hotel. Lovely on the outside as well as inside. We had our choice of dining in the dining room or in the lobby for lunch.

Enjoyed dinner here with friends. Great cheese plate for appetizers. Then enjoyed steak and scallops which were all prepared well and tasted great. Service was also very good. Mid-priced wine list was also well done

I was invited to attend my niece's wedding rehearsal dinner here. I really did not get to see much of the place but what I did see was beautiful. We were escorted into a private room for the rehearsal dinner. It reminded me of a Library because the décor gave you this nostalgic feeling. We were treated to a buffet... More

We have eaten here many, many times and it is always exquisite !!! The menu changes seasonally but always contains items that are farm-fresh. You do not have to be staying in the Hotel to eat here. Dining room is part of historical lobby.
