At first was hesitant to go there because we don't carry cash we use credit cards for everything, on the door they had a sign that said they charge a three and a half percent processing fee for credit cards so we asked to see the menu. The menu looks good and was very reasonably priced so I thought we... More

Stopped into Wilson's to try the new Prime Rib and Crab Leg buffet. The food looked beautiful and tasted terrific. Never a disappointing stop at Wilson's!

This is a longstanding restaurant in the area, and it has apparently begun a bit of a downhill slide. Food is acceptable but not memorable; service quality variable depending on the server, the day, etc. Pricing is high for the quality of the food, and they now charge an extra fee for the use of a credit card. There are... More

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.
