We loved going to Willy's and often will drive by just by chance that they have opened again, and we missed it. Just wanted all to know this place was GREAT. We miss it A LOT!

Willy's Restaurant has been closed for a few months. Chris Willy still does catering, and I believe he will still do special private dinners at the restaurant, but it is closed for normal dining. Chris is a great chef (we catered our daughter's wedding), so I would recommend him for that. I think that running both the catering and the... More

Strong pluses and minuses here. Four of us had dinner one night. The place was packed on a Saturday night, and the noise level throughout the evening was borderline deafening. Everybody had to shout to be heard, which just made things worse. The waitstaff was great, the menu was fantastic, and the food as delivered was delicious. But the noise... More

Very slow service. Nice atmosphere. Food was just not that great. Seemed to me they were trying too hard to be trendy, but they just fell short. East Burke is not Manhattan. Sometimes the basics are better. I can’t recommend this place sorry.

Exceptional! Great menu, wonderful service, and the food we ordered was simply delicious. My only complaint is that the noise level was beyond energetic. The noise level was due to this being a small dining space where most of the parties were of six people or more. My guess is that it was lots of large parties on a Saturday... More

Willy's is not only a fantastic restaurant with a wonderful menu (and daily specials), but it is a place where locals and guests can be treated alike with great respect and regard. My wife and I love to have this place as our 'special getaway' location and the bonus is it is only minutes away! Try the whole menu, but... More

Amazing food at quite an unbelievable price. I had the fish tacos which was enough food for me to keep for lunch the next day and it was only $11.99. The mediterranean chicken pasta was also really good. If you are looking to eat in they have some of the best pizza I have ever had available for pick up.... More
