The History of Will's Fargo
The Will’s building was constructed in the late 1920’s to be a tea room and later served as a Road House located on the “milk run” between Monterey and Tassajara, eventually becoming a dinner house named The Carousel.
Will Fay established Will’s Fargo Restaurant in 1959; the name simply a take-off on his first name which seemed appropriate for what he called the “dressed up saloon” interior. With the use of antiques and collectibles, Will merged the gracious aura of a Victorian parlor with a western “Fargo” way station.
An evening at Will’s Fargo brings back a bygone era—beginning in the butcher shop where certified hand-picked prime rib and steaks are cut to the diner’s specifications—and offers some of the finest food on the Peninsula.
