Really fun atmosphere, live music, friendly staff and pretty good food. Oh and a really well stocked bar.

tea tasted like cigarette ashes, bits of aluminum foil in the baked potato. Visited in August and it was freezing cold in this place. Took forever for the waitress to get the check.

Went for the food stayed for the karaoke. Food was sub par but reasonably priced. Stayed for the karaoke that started at 9 and enjoyed it. May return for karaoke only.

It is convenient to eat at this restaurant before a show at the Mickey Gilley theater next door. However, that is the only reason I can come up with to eat there.

For some reason, we had to wait a while for a table even though many were open. Maybe they were short-staffed that night, but it was irritating to the many small groups waiting in the lobby with empty tables available.

An annoying person tried to take our photo at our table so they could sell it to us later. Whoopee, a photo of us in a restaurant booth....Please let me pay you eight dollars for that?!...The lady in the booth next to us said her eyes were closed in the five-by-seven they tried to sell her.

After all that, our food was bad. The "medium-well" burgers were charred and the taco salad tasted greasy and bland, as if they hadn't drained or seasoned the ground beef before dumping it on the lettuce. Yuck.

Thank goodness the margaritas were strong!

I went into Gilley's at least three times on my visit this year. The food and service were great! I especially enjoy the karaoke entertainment. You never know who will get up to sing!!
