I come here to Galveston 2-3 time a year and always eat here on the final night. What can i say bad about this place, nothing at all.....Its a tradition in our family to eat here. Its in the strand district which has a personality all its own. The cruise ship port is next door and the Galveston ship channel... More

Willie's validated the parking which was close to the restaurant. Had a great view of the water from our table. We tried several appetizers, salad, entrees and everyone enjoyed the presentation and taste of the food. A little higher priced that some places but they had quality food. We had steak, crab, combination platter and each were tasty.

We chose Willie G's to celebrate my 50th birthday. We were greeted warmly by the host and seated outside near the pier. Our waiter was JJ, and he was super friendly, polite, and helpful with his descriptions and suggestions for dinner. My husband and I each had the Gulf Red Snapper special and it was delicious! At the end of... More

My husband is BOI or Born On the Island and I lived here for several years long ago - so we've eaten just about everywhere in Galveston. Although Willie G's is a chain restaurant (they have locations in Denver and elsewhere) we decided to try it. Let me just say this is my new favorite seafood place on the island.... More

After a hard day at the beach and touring the museums of Galveston, wifey and I elected to splurge on a nice meal. Using Tripadvisor we settled on Willie G's as a good place to go. The resturant has a nice view of the Galveston bay looking across the docks and the interior decor was nice. We were seated promptly... More

My husband and I stopped in and discovered it was Happy Hour! I got a $5 lemon martini and he got a $7 margarita - both of which were AWESOME. We also enjoyed the seafood quesadillas and the "twins" (sliders and fries). Not sure if we were just super hungry, or the food was really that good - but we... More

Great place to sit outside and watch the ships, tug boats etc in the channel. We had appetizers and cocktails, were able to see the dolphins feeding by the pier.

Being galveston locals we usually prefer to dine at... More

The food at Willie G's was excellent! Do not miss the opportunity to enjoy a seafood meal cooked by the very finest and served by superb waitress. Thanks, Leslie! You were wonderful as were the dishes that you suggested and served! Dining at Willie G's is a must when visiting the harbor in Galveston!
