We use to enjoy going there but the quality of the food plates and salad bar have gone downhill. The is an $3.50 charge addition to the cost of the entree for the salad bar. It is not worth and additional charge. And there is a 3.75% additional charge to use a credit card. Definitely not worth it !!

The best part of this restaurant were the portions....they are large. The service was mediocre at best and they charge a service charge for using a credit card. I'll not go back here.

I had a perfectly OK chicken wrap, though it was small and left me hungry. The service was nothing special, but it was friendly. Its proximity to the Cross in the Woods Shrine was the best thing it had going for it.

We weren't sure when we arrived if we were going to stay. Small restaurant that looks like it needs updating. Pleasantly surprised when food arrived. Sandwiches were huge, hot and flavorful. Waitress was not the quickest but very friendly. Would definitely eat here again.

We ate breakfast here. Actually my omelet ws very good, however, hash browns were not even warm. The service was quite slow. I asked for well done rye toast and received barely toasted, butter soaked bread. Disappointed with meal.

A trip to Indian River equals a visit to Wilson's! Love the staff who provide excellent friendly service. Food is ALWAYS served accurately and fast. You MUST try the soup and pies, all made daily, in house! Breakfast is always great. Try the Campers Nutty Bread...so good!

We went for breakfast/ lunch at around 11am on a Monday. It was packed, but we didn't have to wait longer than 15 minutes to be seated. I got the camper's nutty French toast. It is amazing. My niece got the southwest chicken sandwich with fries. She loved it. My sister and my friend both got omelets. We couldn't believe... More

Stopped in for a late lunch. Very friendly and tentative staff. Our food came out quick. The oriental chicken salad was a hit. The make to order burger was above average. The southwest turkey sandwich and turkey cheese melt were okay, nothing special. The french fries were really good. The hidden secret is beer is served here. We are coming... More
