Good food

When we first walked in and were seated outside we had zero service for at least 15 minutes, no water or waiter at all. I then asked to sit inside and service got better, The food was good. It was out honeymoon and the manager even got us a complimentary desert. I will definitely come back.

Was really impressed with this restaurant. The staff, ambiance and menu variety was excellent. We ordered the blackened red snapper with crab, shrimp and avocado. Excellent!!

Tried the gumbo as an appetizer. It was burnt and had a bitter taste. Reported it to management. Resulted in a bad case of food poisoning.

Restaurant is located on the bay with nice view. Food is excellent and there's plenty of it; service good. We had dinner there early one evening between a trip to Moody Gardens and the Pier. A nice, quiet restaurant.

The front door staff seems indifferent to welcoming you but that was more than made up for by the waitstaff. Attentive and gracious service throughout the meal. We were, however, very disappointed with the quality of the seafood offered here. The stuffed shrimp was mostly "stuff" and a little shrimp, something you'd find in the frozen food section of a...

This place is a MADHOUSE on Saturday night--with a wait time of 1 1/2 hours! However, the food was excellent and the staff was very friendly. Great place to eat--just put your name on the list, then walk down to the pier (only a few feet away) and enjoy the sunset.

It was our first time in Galveston and we heard that there are awesome restaurants. We were excited about Willie Gs based on its ratings. My husband and I were disappointed. He had the crawfish etouffee and it was a bummer as there was little spice/heat. I had the Chilean sea bass and was really disappointed when it turned out... More

This is a nice place, great atmosphere, average but it's frustrating to wait so long for a table when you see many open tables. During our dinner we noticed that the entire time we were there, there was a wait. But at least 12 - 14 tables open. Our waiter was fantastic! Calamari was delicious!

Five of us set out for stingeree on crystal beach, but the ferry ride from Galveston was a couple of hours long. We tried fisher man's wharf, but there was some sort of mechanical problem there, so we were guided toward willie g. It is a beautiful restaurant, and the service was top-notched! The food, however, which is why we... More
