You can't go to Galveston without finding time for seafood. And Willie G's is just the place. A little pricey. But. Excellent service and excellent food. We so enjoyed watching all the boats heading out as well. We liked this place so much. We came back the next night as well! Both evenings were wonderful. PS. The stuffed flounder is... More

We wandered over to Willie G's after waiting over half an hour without any service at another restaurant on the pier. It was an excellent move!! Staff was quick, friendly and attentive, atmosphere was wonderful (padded seating on the outside deck, and a waterfront view), and the food was absolutely the best! We will definitely go back on our next... More

My husband and I went on a Friday night for dinner. Reservations were easy but needed because the place was very busy. The staff was quite friendly and our server was the best. I ordered fish and shrimp with pasta. The fish and shrimp were excellent but the pasta was just ok. I think that it would have been better... More

Even though this is right on the strip where you would expect to find a generic touristy seafood restaurant this place doesn't disappoint. Had the blackened redfish and it was great. Even the sides (rice, and risotto) were very good. The atmosphere is suitable for a family early in the day but could also be for special occasions at night.

In Galveston for the w/e, first time here was Friday night. We were seated by the window, looking out at the water. Nice start. Waitress was jovial and personable (I'm sorry, I didn't catch your name!) I ordered an Apple Martini with Tito's and three green olives, very cold. A rare treat for me. It was ok. Definitely not worth... More

Visited for a late lunch on my birthday. The Bar Trash appetizer was delicious. We ordered a Caesar salad, Small Seafood Gumbo, Chicken BLT and the Mini Guilani. According to the menu the Mini Guiliani consists of Parmesan-crusted shrimp topped with melted mozzarella, light tomato sauce & angel hair pasta. Served with Tomato Basil Soup. See the photo to see... More

Had dinner here with my wife. Food was very good as was the service. We sat outside since it was quieter and the views were better. Worth the trip!
