This is one of the best restaurants I have been to and not paid through my nose for. The waitress was obviously very well-trained and she was training a new waitress at the time we visited. The attention to detail, the customer service... just wow! I did spot a manager who was keeping a 'hawks eye' on the goings on... More

The food was outstanding! A little pricey, but so are all the restaurants in that area. The customer service was great also.

This lovely restaurant with scenic view is an good place to make a good impression. It never fails that these spots are usually overpriced and come with haughty service or server who is just in the way. I know that there is a job to be done, but sometimes it's rude to break into conversation. Don'y forget, part of your... More

I will remember seeing the dolphins more than the food. The food was okay but expensive. The service was constant at the point of being almost over the top. The bill for sodas came as a bit of a shock, the most costly coke I have ever drank. Good view with dolphins.

My wife & I recently traveled to Galveston, Tx. We stopped by Willie G's. The food is fantastic. We enjoyed an appetizer before the main course and dessert afterwards. Very good. The service was top notch. The server took care of our every wish. But I will say this , it's not cheap. So if you're not concerned with a... More

We were seated right away with our drink order taken immediately following ... Very receptive and courteous waiter .... Very nice atmosphere for a casual but nice lunch ... Ordered the pan seared scallops... They were wonderful! All that you would expect and more ... Pricey but worth it after a swim at the beach ... Totally would recommend and... More

There was only a 20 minute wait with a pager (which isn't so bad because the pager could reach far enough to view the pier) Service was great which accounts for one star. Then the view was amazing, we were there for sunset, so that was gorgeous enough which accounts for the second star. I give an average rating for... More

Crawfish étouffée was horrible way to fishy like crawfish were from China. Gumbo just as bad. We have a home on the island and by far this is the worst food we've ate. Ruined our evening the food was so bad.

I have never felt discrimination till now! Me and my husband went here wanting oysters, my husband went to put our name on the list, the well dressed couple in front of him was told 30 min wait. We were told 1.5 hours! We were in tank tops and nice shorts. Nice beach attire. We decided to sit at the... More

My wife and I wandered into Willie G's last night and had a truely great experience the food and service rivaled that of a 5 star cruise ship! The only down side was trying to get us to buy into a rewards program.
