“a top choice for Galesburg Dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

Chez Willy gives a consistently excellent dining experience, be it with friends, date night or for the whole family. Everything is prepared fresh and I have never ordered anything that didn't "wow" me! Bill and Brenda (owners) have seafood on Friday nights and if you are lucky enough to be there when they offer Sea Bass you are in for a treat! Yum!

The menu is diverse and not overwhelming. The Pad Thai is better than any Thai restaurant I have ever been to. The atmosphere is casual yet elegant, you feel comfortable in jeans or dressed up. We have always found the service to be very attentive and polite, and Brenda will come around to your table to personally greet you and make sure that all is to your liking. It is a nice touch in this age of chain restaurants.

In conclusion, I think Chez Willy is an underrated gem in Galesburg...one of my top choices for dining--lunch or dinner.

“Good food, limited menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2012

Had dinner here with coworkers while in town on business. A nice change of pace from everything else in Galesburg. Definitely upscale food, but without being snooty. The menu was small, but it seemed that everything on it was of better than average quality, as we had 5 in our party and everyone got something different. A little spendy, but again not unreasonable for the quality of food and the good service.

“Nice place enjoyed dinner and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2012

Just visiting Galesburg for the first time in roughly 30 years, born and raised there. No clue where to eat dinner . Betty at the Great House B&B suggested them, good suggestion. Great service, great New York strip steak and medallions of veal, both suggested by the captain. If and when we ever return would not hesitate to go again.....good wine list as well.
