Elegant dinning that offers great service, and excellent food and the menu offers much variety. The food was presented very well. We went there to celebrate an anniversary...the atmosphere was perfect.

We were out and about with the Horse people in Aiken and went as a group to the Wilcox. Everybody at the table was extremely satisfied with the service and more importantly the food that had been prepared.  We shared our plates with each other to experience the full wonder of flavors. Very impressed with the flavors and the plating. Job well done.

We had a unfortunate experience in December at the Willcox. We've gone twice since for dinner and a lunch and the Willcox performed as we expected, wonderful! Everything we've was enjoyable.
