We stopped in after doing some dolphin watching. I have heard about their Happy Hour and was not disappointed. The food and drinks were fantastic. It seems like we were not the only ones most of the people were ordering from the Happy Hour menu. The drinks were well balanced. They were not overly sweet and you could taste the alcohol without feeling like you are doing shots. They have a Mexican martini that rivaled some of the best margaritas. Not the mass produced slushie version but real juice. The strand swirl I think is a sangria with margaritas swirl and the peach mojito yum. We had the fresh oysters soo good and no bits of broken shell like some places. The crab and spinach shells I wanted to lick the plate. Calamari was tender. The Buffalo chicken bites were good very little breading so you taste the chicken. The seafood quesadilla was amazing with the roasted corn. We definitely will go back on our next visit. Oh the lemon drop martini we didn't try but seemed very popular.

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.
