“This was bad!”
Reviewed December 23, 2013

We love real "dive" bars but this was not one. It is just bad. Very poor service. Bartendar is very rude and obviously does not want to be there. Not sure why she is still employeed. It has potential but it will remain below average until they change out staff. We did not stay to order food because the atmosphere is not good. Very negative vibes from the staff and bartendar. Too bad because it is in a good location.

“Great Local Spot”
Reviewed December 5, 2013 via mobile

I always make a point to ask where the locals hang out when they get off work. Willys does not disappoint, just dont expect more than you should.

“stay away”
Reviewed November 29, 2013

if you like greasey food , over cooked fried food , poor wait staff that smokes in front of you, smells like smoke when your food is brought out , dont ask if everything is cooked to order or ok, snaps at you when you ask a question , then this place is for you. if you go out and spend your hard earned money and expect at the least good service dont waste your money here , because thats what it is, a waste of money. only good thing was the beer and how hard is it to pop a top ?

“Classic Florida Dive”
Reviewed November 12, 2013 via mobile

You have to go to appreciate the locals and the regulars. Not necessarily the place for kids after dark. Not a quiet place at least at one of the few inside tables. BUT everyone is super friendly. The food is straight forward and damn tasty. Huge burgers with a ton of topping choices and they easily accommodated my build to order (sautéed onions mushrooms and jalapeños with blue cheese crumbles on top) burger. Heck they even have liver and onions. SUPER VALUE AS FAR AS PORTION AND FLAVOR TO $$. Their hot dog is just stupid how big it is. This is just one of those truly classic Florida beach bars and dives. Fun place to go chill when you want to just be informal and come as you are. Everybody needs a place like this!

“Local hangout with good food and cold drinks.”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

Small beach side (not on the water) restaurant with a great following of locals. The food is reasonably priced and just enough variety to keep you coming back. Get there early if you want a seat at the bar as this small space fills up quite fast. I did notice on my last visit that there were several tables missing from the restaurant (something to do with the city). What a shame as this is such a unique spot on St Pete Beach. Hopefully things will get resolved quickly and the tables will be back outside again for guests to enjoy.
