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

I ordered steak tips, medium rare. They came a little on the rare side, but the flavor was absolutely not there. Tasted as if there was no marinade whatsoever. Not even a sprinkle of salt? The mashed potatoes had the consistency of - and flavor of - paste. A shame, really, for the $45 I spent on myself that night.... More

The view sitting outside is ok. On a nice day it won't matter, especially once you taste the cuisine. Great menu and delicious food with a smart and gracious staff. You will enjoy your visit.

great food at a great price. Location is just across the street from the Harbor House Hotel. A short few steps away. Safe and clean

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
