I visited Gilley's during a work function with 400+ people in attendance and it was perfect for our large group. There was a live country band playing, open bar, outside seating/ambiance and good food. If you're there late night, the mechanical bull is a crowd favorite. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a TX experience with... More

I went to Gilley's for a private party that included southwest food, booze, country vocalist, Country & Western band, mechanical bull, armadillo racing, corn hole and lot and lots of fun with friends and co-workers!

My company had a function here this week. Huge facility that can handle large groups. I'm not sure what this place is like normally as we had it reserved just for our function. Food was average but I think most people would go here more for the Texas themed entertainment.

Went to Gilley's as part of a conference dinner. Over 150 people there. We spent time in two large rooms. The first one was for appetizers and alcohol. The second room (right next door) was for dinner (with a band). Food was served buffet style. It was good. Unfortunately, they ran out of steak, and there were about 10 of... More

First I want to say that, this of course is not the original Gilleys since the Urban Cowboy movie with John Travolta was located in Pasadena, Texas. The original burned down some years back buy my friend from Michigan still wanted to visit, so we did. It is a nice saloon. The original bull from the movie is located and... More

Went for a Texas BBQ Buffet and line dancing. Dancing was fun and the atmosphere is really cool with the Jack Daniels barrels lining the walls. We had Beef Brisket,pulled Pork, BBQ chicken, potato salad, corn salad, and Mac and cheese! So amazing!!!!

This was my first visit to Gilley's. I ordered the Texas Barbeque with chopped brisket, green beans, and skillet mashed potatoes. The brisket was pretty good. The green beans were good also. The mashed potatoes were real and delicious. The sweet tea was just right. The pecan pie was not so good. The staff was friendly. The prices are fairly... More

Not really sure what to make of this place. Not a typical restaurant - you have to queue at a desk in the corner to order your food and you take a number, find a seat and wait for someone to shout out your number. The food is average fare and served on plastic trays. We were there for a... More

The place was empty other than us and a drunk guy. Food was okay, but I thought it would be a more happening place. Nothing much to see other than the cool outside sign and the mechanical bull.
