The new air system is installed, the carpets replaced, walls painted and the dust has settled – Wilf’s facelift is ready to be seen! We’re open for lunch today at 11:30am and then Ron Steen fires up his Trio at 7:30pm. You can see some photos of the construction chaos on our Facebook page, and then come on down and see the results for yourself … Adele, Candace, Jo-Ann and all the staff have missed you – see you soon!
We have some good news and some not-so-good news. First the good news…
Wilfs is Getting a Much Needed Facelift and Renovation!
Hot weather is right around the corner, and we’re gearing up for it … We’re installing a new cooling/heating system, new windows, new carpeting, and our kitchen will also be updated (Chef Deb and staff are excited about that one!) Whew … that’s a lot of work! So, what’s the not-so-good news? Well, construction begins Saturday May 19th and we’ll be closed through June 13th. But, we’ll see your smiling faces back at Wilfs when we re-open on Wednesday, June 13 for lunch at 11:30am serving our famous burgers and Reubens. Then we’ll be serving dinner that night with our traditional live jazz session with – who better top re-open – The Ron Steen Trio all evening long.
Please check our website for construction updates and the June event calendar. And thanks so much for your patience during our renovation. We’ll miss you all while we’re closed…

Here’s a bit of video for the song, Stompin’ Ground where Wilfs makes a cameo! The song is also the theme for Stompin’ Ground, an original Comcast SportsNet production. It’s a dust-inhaling, dirt-eating, boot-stomping, heart-stopping, good-time rodeo program. It’s a real-life look at the Willis’, an Oregon rodeo family who uphold the ethics & attitudes of the western lifestyle. Take a gander into their unique & chaotic life at theranch and on the road. To the Willis’, rodeo is life. It’s always go-time. Their lifestyle is full of passion, excitement, disappointment, sacrifice, the unexpected & the unbelievable. Learn more at Comcast Sports Net
