A relatively new establishment, Willoughbys restaurant, is becoming the place to be for entertainment in Leland. It opened in February 2013 and has been gaining fans ever since.
Willoughbys was named after a very famous episode of Rod Serling’s “The Twilight Zone,” an early science fiction series that ran on CBS from 1959-1964.
Billed as “not your ordinary tavern,” Willoughbys is located on Ocean Highway just south of Magnolia Greens. The owner is dedicated to keeping prices very affordable and has created a comfortable, cozy atmosphere.
Live entertainment is offered several nights a week at Willoughbys restaurant. Everything from blues to beach music to rock and roll is featured. There are popular karaoke nights on Wednesday and line dancing on Monday, starting at 7:00 p.m. Tuesday night is poker night, also beginning at 7:00 p.m.
The restaurant has an outdoor area filled with roses, shrubs and other flowers. There also is a pretty place for a fireside chat. All types of cocktails are available at modest prices. Beer and wine prices are bargains too.
Visitors will have no trouble finding the restaurant. Look for a beautiful state of the art, fire engine red Willoughbys food truck that is in front of the building.
