Excellent Seafood with Service Glitch

One of our favorite seafood places where we enjoyed Happy Hour with two shared Hors D'Oeuvres. The person serving us was new and asked to order our appetizers, soups and dinner so he could get order in before it got busy. Unfortunately, all items arrived at once. Thank goodness it was Oysters... read more

By far the worst meal we have had in Galveston. Poor service. Small portions. OVER priced. Won't be back. First Jay our waiter was a soft talker...not good while eating outside. He had to repeat the specials twice for us to hear them. No rye whiskey...who doesn't have rye whiskey. I said Beam would be okay, asked for it with... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant after walking the Strand, we are so glad we found this place. We knew we had to try when we were reading the menu outside and a lady looked at us and said "Best food ever", we quickly went in. There was a wait for a table so we had a couple drinks at the... More

My husband and I were referred to this restaurant by a few people on the island. It was the best dinner on our trip. The service was excellent, the food was great and the portions were more than either of us could eat. We will definitely return on our next trip to the coast.

Perks are; the nice view and photo opps outside the waterside of the restaurant. In General, Willie G's was okay... Food was okay for the high price and service was good, but kitchen slow . For a waterside restaurant I found nothing remarkable. For the price, I really didn't find it as good as it could have been. We arrived... More

I recently had a leisurely lunch at Willie G's in Galveston. It was mid-afternoon on a Sunday so it was not crowded. Service was exceptional. The waitress even tried to insure that I had access to their wi-fi. I had tenderloin tips with a side of creamed spinach which was to die for! Very enjoyable experience.

After a really bad experience at another Galveston eatery the night before, we came to our comfort zone - one if Landry's flock... A new Willy G's experience for us... Great ambiance - wine prices not bad - food was awesome - started with a dozen oysters on the half shell each, very fresh; my flounder simply grilled was succulent... More
