Good seafood and location

We met friends here after a cruise out of Galveston. It was close to the cruise terminal and we specified that we wanted some Texas seafood. I asked the waiter if anything on the menu was from Galveston Bay and he said not really. I was disappointed. I can get seafood flown in at any fine dining... read more

We used to live and work in Galveston. We visited a few days ago and I was really looking forward to Fried Shrimp. We decided on Willie G's and it was the biggest mistake we could have made. The shrimp tasted like they were frozen and breaded. Definitely not what I was expecting or hoping for.

We needed a quick lunch before we explored the Pier 21 area, so we stopped in at Willie G's on their patio. Great view of the pier area on spacious patio with really nice, relaxing furniture. We had a great waiter - he was from the Ukraine and we enjoyed visiting with him - the service was spot on! We... More

Pleasantly surprised. Place looked clean and fresh. Great professional service. I had Angel Hair Pasta with blackened seafood. It was very good. Wife had a Steak Salad. It was perfect. We had an appetizer, iced tea, no alcohol. The bill was about $80, but we were ok with that. The young waiter earned a nice tip. We will go back.

Stopped in here for a light lunch and were pleasantly surprised by the excellent food, great view of the harbor, and excellent service. Wish we had more time to sample dinner. Highly recommend.

Being a Landry's Select Member cut the wait time in half (15 min). The service was excellent & the food delicious. The bill was $95 for 2 appetizers, 2 entrees, & dessert. The atmosphere is relaxing & they have indoor & outdoor dining. Definitely recommend!

We picked this restaurant due to one up the street being full. We could get a table pretty quickly and had a nice view of the harbor. We had a couple different seafood platters and the food was pretty good. I had the 4 shrimp platter and it was heavy with different choices of shrimp. I would had mixed the... More

This is my favorite happy hour place. Happy Hour begins at 11a-7p Mon-Fri. Set at the bar/bar area and enjoy drinks and good food for a reasonable price. Drinks specials start at $3 and food at $5. Oh, I should mention that the Bloody Mary and Mango Mojito is absolutely delicious.
