Hit the happy hour, ordered a few appetizers and cocktails. Noticed a difference in food/liquor quantity/quantity in happy hr compared to regular...kind of expected. Good seafood though.

Willie G’s Seafood was recommended by friends from TX. We were well pleased. The redfish with crawfish and mushrooms with a delicious sauce was outstanding. The blackened fish with guacamole, shrimp, etc. was also appetizing. The portions were ample, service good, and the Creme Brûlée was extra yummy with a lovely presentation.

This was our first visit to Willie G’s. We loved it! The crab cake sliders were to die for. The fish tacos were amazing! We sat outside and enjoyed a nice breeze and good service. It will not be out last visit for sure!!!

Willie G’s is on the bayside of Galveston. You get 3 hours of free parking in the adjacent lot. Arriving at 7:15 my wife & I were told we had a 45 min wait. We walked along the harbor for a while before returning & finding 2 seats at the bar where your food can be served. We each had a $9 Pina Colada (frozen). Well worth it. As good as we’ve ever had. She had chicken fettuccine which was honestly average. I, on the other hand, had blackened catfish étouffée which was SPECTACULAR. Crawfish tails and sauce covering the catfish. Wow! If I could, I’d rate 4 1/2 stars because of the average fettuccine, but the Pina Colada & Catfish were so incredible, Willie G’s gets 5 stars.

We came here for an early dinner on our anniversary to use a gift card given to us by our son. We sat in the happy hour section at a large booth, and ordered off of the Happy Hour menu and the lunch menu. Service was excellent and for dessert, they even had spelled out Happy Anniversary on the plate that the desert cake was on. We had the shrimp that you peel yourself with their own special sauce, but I asked and received regular cocktail sauce. We also ordered the fried fish and shrimp from the lunch menu, but were too full to finish it. I thought that the food was good, but not as good as we had had the night before at a local independent restaurant. The service was excellent and we were not rushed as we spent two hours eating. It was a very nice anniversary experience, but I am not sure that I will go back again when there are other places in Galveston with better tasting seafood.
