My husband and I walked to Willie G's from our hotel, Tremont House, and had about a 35 minute wait on a Saturday night at 5:15pm. Reservations recommended. I has the mixed grill over risotto, which was delicious, and husband had grilled salmon over risotto, which he said was also very good. I also had an iceberg wedge with blue... More

Wife and I went here while at the Harbor House and got the Bar version of their steak and lobster. Each was 3 ounces. Not a big meal but enough to snack on. Both were very tasty and for 13 bucks not too bad for what you get. Would recommend for a lite dinner and drinks

Everything in this restaurant had great presentation and service. We started with the seafood quesodilla that had crab, crawfish, and shrimp. My boyfriend is a picky eater and he ate the delicious flavors right up. I order the sugarosa that came with flounder topped with crab, pasta and shrimp. Everything was cooked to perfection. I would definitely visit again.

We ate dinner at Willie G's while staying at the Harbor House Hotel, and we were offered a complimentary appetizer. I ordered the Gumbo and it really was dreadful. A thin brown liquid with a small amount of seafood in it. My husband ordered a steak, but wasn't cooked properly. They cooked it correctly, and gave us a discount on... More

We decided to get some seafood before boarding our cruise ship. I ordered 1/2 doz. oysters, king crab. Wifey ordered the fried seafood platter and a white lightning drink. The food was good but to be really honest.... it was about the same as a red lobster, just cost a lot more. The oysters were the smallest I have ever... More

I really like the atmosphere there everything is pretty nice. The food is ok. Appetizers are nothing special but the main course was very very good. The service can be better for this kind of restaurant. The host was playing on her phone in the most of the time....

Our family was in Galveston the night before a cruise and staying at the Harbor House. We walked across a driveway (30 feet?) to Willie G's for dinner on a Sunday night. The restaurant had a very open feel, very clean and friendly. We were promptly seated and then welcomed by Abraham, our waiter, who provided exceptional service throughout our... More

We were there the afternoon of New Years Eve and had a great meal. We split the panko crusted asparagus, nice large perfectly cooked, and the blackened snapper. The food was excellent, the view, sitting next to the window, looking out into the harbor and The Elissa was great and our waiter was very good, his Ukrainian accent a little... More

Our most recent trip was unpleasantly surprising but I'm still going to give it a mostly positive based on past visits and usual consistency. This time we think it was the manager filling in at host station and the greeting was less than warm. View is always pleasant, wait staff is always superior, true for this and all visits. Salads...

We enjoyed a lovely dinner here at Willy G’s. The restaurant wasn’t busy as it was a Sunday evening, we had requested a window seat and upon arrival our table awaited us. The food was pure Texas Gulf Coast and very good. The service was incredible good. A group of about 30 people came in shortly after we did and... More
