“Great Ambience and Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed our appetizers, shrimp cabo and the crab cakes. The entrees were outstanding. They have an excellent wine list. Our server was most attentive. We had a great view of the harbor.

“Great ambiance”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

The shrimp cabo was delicious. The waiter generously told us how to re-create this dish at home though said it is tricky. Great wine and cocktail list. The fried shrimp were ok but I have had better for less expensive. The breading was really thick and I ended up peeling it off. I wouldn't get these again. The mashed potatoes were very good.

“Fresh local seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

Seafood is local and very fresh. My favorite is snacks at the bar and a large variety of cocktails of a good quality.

“Excellent Service Excellent food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2014

We have been eating at a lot of restaurants on the island this lasts week. So far of the more expensive restaurants, Willie G's has been the best both in food and service. It has a wonderful harbor view too. From the time we arrived the staff were professional and made it a dining experience. Our entrees of stuffed fish and snapper with lump crab meat were awesome. I think the lump crab meat was the best I have had on the island. The creme brulee and bread pudding were both great! This is the restaurant to go to for a very nice date/dinner out.
