Williams has a tired menu, a tired atmosphere and nothing new at all. It is really in need of a refresh, remodel, new menu etc. I feel like I am walking into a hunting lodge that was not kept up. Wood paneling everywhere. Booths are aged as well. Food is average, but inconsistent. Service is also spotty, sometimes good, sometimes... More

We have been to this restaurant four times this month with our last visit being yesterday. Staff is always friendly and attentive. Tables are clean and food service gets your order right to you with little delay. Favorite dishes here are the prime rib, fried seafood and the spinach artichoke dip appetizer is a great way to start.

Because of an upcoming motorcycle rally in Gardner MA, my husband and I stopped to check out The Williams so that we can advise others of places to eat in the area. After a day spent at the Red Apple Farm we decided to stop on our way back to Haverhill, MA for dinner. It turned out to be a... More

Williams is a friendly neighborhood restaurant with an affordable and varied menu. The food and the service has always been well above average. There are a few TVs so you can watch a sporting event and there is keno to keep you entertained. It's easy entry for folks with mobility issues too. I usually get the salmon, but the rubens... More

This is what happens when you crave a meal and find it, but it is so disappointing! It is my own fault for wanting Coconut Crusted Fried Shrimp that I have such fond memories of from Warren's Lobster House in Kittery ME!! What a huge disappointment! This is what is so funny about it; the coconut crusted fried shrimp at... More

We go here occasionally the food is good but it varies in it being consistently good. Not a bad place by any means, service and pricing very good

I have been going to Williams's for many years. They have a large selection of delicious items on their menu. I especially love their baked stuffed shrimp, fried sea scallops, and prime rib. I know I will be satisfied with my choice whenever I go there to eat.

I always like to try non-chain restaurants when I have the chance in the hope that I will find a gem. Williams is a little off the beaten path, and seems to be a favorite with the locals, so we took an early Valentine's Day meal there. I was pretty pleased with the food quality, and the portions were huge.... More

Always go here on the weekend and it is fairly busy. Food is good and service is excellent. My friends usually get the prime rib and I opt for the haddock. No complaints
