My wife and I frequent the Willard often. We love the deluxe Pizza with all the toppings, it is the Old Masters recipe and piled high with all your favorite toppings and lots of cheese, not the skimpy cracker crust and minimal toppings popular in some Indy restaurants. And, the wings are to die for. It is a friendly place, catering to all ages, although it does get a bit crowded on Friday and Saturday nights, it is all fun. Since Franklin changed their smoking ban ordinance to "all" public areas, the Willard is health-friendly to everyone.
The people that were complaining of the smoke, should have not been there to begin with, and they were taking their frustrations out on the food. The Willard has "THE" best food. Great atmosphere (includint the smoke). If you don't like it, go to Burger King or McDonald's.
Absolutely wonderful! Everything I have ordered has been fabulous and the service is top-notch. I love having a restaurant in town that offers new, delicious choices. Not the same ole burger joint.
