Writing a review of the Willows is a bit of a challenge. For one thing, it’s devilishly hard to remember the details of nearly twenty dishes (and the accompanying wines) that merge into a kaleidoscope in the memory. And for me it’s difficult because on...More

I read most of the Yelp reviews before showing up. Given the sky high expectation we did not think we would be easily impressed. But dinner at the Willows Inn surely did not disappoint! We thoroughly enjoyed the mainly seafood and fruits & vegetables bite-size...More

We spent a weekend on Lummi Island some time ago and it was very relaxing. The food was much more than we had expected. We loved the squash soup and have been trying to find the recipe ever since! We keep talking about going back.

This was our fourth visit in four years and we continue to be amazed at the overall experience. Last night we were served 19 individually presented courses. Tiny servings but in total it was a satisfying meal. It started with four different morsels presented with...More

Chef Wetzel and his staff really bring the land indoors -- love the fact that there is no set menu and most everything you enjoy is seasonal fare that has been fished, foraged or hunted on the island or in the region. Definitely worth a...More

We have eaten and stayed at Willows Inn a number of times before, but going there for New Year's Eve was festive! Appetizers and champagne started the evening (venison tartare, oysters and those additive bric roll ups). Dinner and 'snacks' are always delightful and surprising....More
