COVER CHARGES apply when Wilfs features live music in our bar area – Wednesday – Saturday, 7:30-11:30 pm. Quite simply, the cover charge is paid directly to the artists that you are enjoying each night at Wilfs. When you join us for drinks or dinner and plan on leaving before the music starts, we won’t ask for a cover charge. That does not mean you can come early and avoid paying the cover – we want to make sure our musicians are paid for their performance. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask your host or server.
