Enjoy a casual, comfortable dining experience at Aiken, South Carolina’s most loved landmark. Our unpretentious, innovative and addictively delicious menu ranges from burgers and salads to fresh fish and certified Angus beef steaks. Light meals and healthier options also are served, each prepared with care using farm-fresh or organically grown foods bought from regional suppliers.
We specialize in ambience and artfully prepared cuisine that includes line-caught fish, organic poultry, naturally farmed pork and Certified Angus Beef brought to you by generations of family farmers and ranchers.
The Restaurant also participates in South Carolina’s Fresh on the Menu program, a commitment by our chefs to use fresh fruits, vegetables and meats from state growers. We also are partners in the state’s Sustainable Seafood Initiative, which means we only serve seafood that is caught or farmed with minimal impact to the environment.

Whether you'd like to lounge by the pool with a cocktail, nestle by the fire with appetizers and a glass of wine, enjoy a beautiful meal in the dining room or meet friends for drinks in our Lobby Bar, The Restaurant is the living room of the community and Aiken's first gastropub, where guilty pleasures are served with a smile. That’s just one of several reasons The Willcox landed on an exclusive list of America’s best hotels when surveyed by the readers of Condé Nast Traveler and Travel + Leisure magazines.
Locals love us, too, voting us the best place for brunch, the most popular spot to see and be seen during happy hour, home of the tastiest original cocktail, The Parisian at The Willcox, and the greatest wait staff in town.
