The Willows is a local favorite for hosting parties or other small gatherings. When you step onto the grounds, you’ll immediately realize why. It looks nothing like a traditional restaurant or banquet facility. Nestled in the lush vegetation are multiple, stand-alone structures in a tropical motif.
In addition to the regular dining areas, the Willows offers private dining rooms that are literally detached from any of the other dining areas. The only downside is that the buffet line is located in its own separate building, which means that each trip needs to be strategically planned to minimize the total number of trips required.
The quality of the food is excellent and the variety of desserts is immense. My favorite dessert is the molten chocolate cake, which is best eaten fresh from the oven (like most buffets, a good strategy and proper timing are very important).
Parking is pretty tight in the area, but valet parking is located across the street from the restaurant’s entrance. Limited self-parking (paid by the hour) is also available down the street.
