I'm glad that this place is still around, and although its a little different from Welliver's, I still enjoy all the foods I've enjoyed for a long time. I like to come here at least once a year.

The former Wellivers Smargasbord still has wide variety of fare to please everyone. Our party of three enjoyed the buffet, a steak and a sandwich. All were very good. The steak was outstanding. The service was prompt, friendly, attentive and very professional. Their dessert selection offers something for everyone's taste. A well appointed and quiet atmosphere and a dining experience...

The smorgasbord restaurant of Hagerstown has been well known in area for years. I had not been there in a longtime and back then it had different owners. I remembered it being a nicer, higher quality restaurant. Food was average, nothing special. We were very disappointed in it. We're not the type to make several trips back for more food... More

I took my 2016 Electric Leaf from PIttsburgh to Kansas City and stopped in Hagerstown to charge at Schneider Electric. The folks here were really friendly. I highly recommend stopping here and supporting this local business.

Great food. Ate on the menu side of the restaurant. Service was slow but our waitress was very attentive. Lots of bread and cheeseball while we waited. Will return.

Willie and Red's is the successor to a longtime staple in Central Indiana, Weliver's Smorgasbord. Weliver's had high quality seafood, fresh salads, home made salad dressings, and unique side dishes. That quality is not there anymore and the quality sea food is gone too. We have not tried the table service restaurant at the back end of the house since... More

Three of us decided to make the drive out so that two of us could try the fried chicken. Eastern and SE Indiana is known for popular restaurants that serve great fried or broasted chicken. We opted for the menu service. Two of us ordered the chicken, the other ordered orange roughy, with fries and one got a salad. The... More

We decided to dine off the menu rather than off the buffet but is definitely return when super hungry to give it a try. The restaurant was decorated seasonally for fall - very clean and fresh - busy with older couples as well as young families We came for the fried chicken and weren't disappointed. Not salty, not greasy, thoroughly... More

Name has changed but the food remains great. Buffet or menu style - you can't go wrong. Our group ordered from the menu - all food and service was the best. Pricing is very good for the food quality.

We have always enjoyed going to Willie and Red's (formerly Welliver's) over the years. Our favorite is the old bar room because of the relaxed atmosphere and the food is always good. When the weather is nice, it is interesting to walk around the downtown and stroll through the shops before dinner. Always a nice experience.

Thank Merry S
