About Wilson’s Restaurant

Wilson’s is a one of a kind old-fashioned ice cream parlor located in the historic Village of Ephraim. Wilson’s Restaurant has a tradition stretching back to 1906 of being the place where young and old gather for an ice cream cone, ice cream specialties or great food. Wilson’s is a seasonal restaurant and is open from mid-May through mid-October. We employ approximately 60 people over the course of the season. Most of them work from mid-May through Labor Day. Over two-thirds of our people return each year, so we selectively recruit to fill the open positions. The staff consists primarily of students from the Midwest.
