Service was good , food was comforting and tasted great. My second time here & the quality has stayed true. Husband had the traditional turkey dinner & said it all tasted home cooking. I had the turkey stroganoff. Flavor was good but turkey was dry, but I was warned asking for all breast meat would ruin the integrity of the... More

Walking in to Willie Bird's is like traveling back in time for me. My Papa, Elmo Martini would take me here when I was about 4 years old. The place looks and smells exactly the same! I think some of the employees are even the same!!! Unchanged from the day it was open in 1981, the front door handle has... More

We went to dinner and had the prime rib. The portion was so big I couldn't finish it. The mashed potatoes were very creamy and delicious. The chicken and rice soup was perfect with tons of chicken and vegetables in it. My son had the hamburger and said it was moist and flavorful. We didn't have room for dessert because... More

We were in Santa Rosa for business on a Saturday morning. I had seen this place before and thought it would be a good place for breakfast. We were seated right away and got water quite quickly. That's where the good feeling ended. After figuring out what we wanted to eat, we waited. And waited. And waited. FINALLY the waitress... More

Been here a long time so inside is a bit tired looking. But if you love turkey than this is the place. A bit pricey but food is hot and plenty. Turkey plate was yummy not dry and tasteless but good.

I ate early so there was a booth open. Took a while for my waitress to show up. Luckily she was the only one of the four that I saw who ever smiled. The other three had the attitude that they were serving life sentences so what difference did service make?. The atmosphere and patrons made me think of a... More
