I don't know why people go here. The decor and ambiance are poor. The food is average at best. Not good enough to make me want to go back. Not even on my list of choices. Too bad because good choices are few and far between in north Worcester county. If you enjoy great food served in a pleasant atmosphere... More

This place is a cute rustic family restaurant. We live in town and Williams is one of our go to places for dinner or lunch with extended family... Pricing is fair and service is usually pretty good. There is live music a few nights a week. Food is excellent

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!

Went to the restaurant on a Saturday night the dinning room has some booths and tables in an open dinning room, they also have a large bar with plenty of seats... They had a good menu selection and even a drink menu.. They serve you with house made bread which was warm and tasty, i started with a side salad... More
