Pleasantly suprised by the food

I wasn't expecting much given the ambiance, but the seafood platter was tasty and the service was good. The downside is that you have to wait in line to order and then hope there is a table available after. Even if there are not tables, they still take orders and your kids have to stand around... read more

We had a great time here! The food was fantastic and the prices were reasonable. It was a little loud, but not too crazy. The drinks were very good and a little strong. A great visit!

Willie's has a menu that meets everyone's tastes. Appetizers ( especially fried mushrooms & onion rings ) are awesome. Chicken fried chicken is great & comes in a HUGE portion. All the sides mashed potatoes, fresh veggies, French fries are always "spot-on." The salads are a great choice ~ always fresh & satisfying. Also they offer adult beverages & an... More

Sad that they got rid of the Crawfish Etoufee from the menu but they still have tails. All of the food choices are great. Huge menu selection. Inside or patio seating. Sand box for kids to play in. Texas flavor.

We went there for a family birthday celebration. The food was great and our waitress was ever so efficient. There were 12 of us and no one was ignored. Great atmosphere for families and get togethers.

Went for the crawfish boil. Was great! The seasoning was so good and the service was great. That was our first time here and I guarantee, we will be back!

Have eaten at this Willies mor than a dozen times and the food is always good no matter what is ordered. I have had the pulled pork and it was good but my favorite is the Buffalo Chicken sandwich with crispy fries. The sauce is tangy, the chicken is always tender and the rolls are soft and tasty. I get... More

This ws our second time and the so-so first experience didn't improve with the second visit. Maybe the food just isn't my style. It is okay, but doesn't wow, for sure. You order at the counter and then eventually a server confirms the order and after that at some point, they bring it. We had several mix ups at our... More
