We tried this place on Saturday. The service was good and the food was very good. We had a steak and salad. The chicken liver appetizer was the best I have ever tasted.

Winifred's had my all time favorite restaurant dish...Chicken Angelo!!! My husband really likes their steaks too. The loaf of bread with honey butter is fantastic too. Winifred's is always my favorite place for special occasions.
