We almost did not go because of a couple of negative reviews. Not sure what they ordered, but what we (4) ordered was very good. We all did enjoy our dinner. The only suggestion I would offer the management is to lessen the sugar in the cornbread they bring out initially. It is good, just way too sweet for my liking.

The fish & chips are the best in town! The fish tacos are good too, they need to double up the tortillas they serve them on, they fall apart too fast.

family and i went to Willy's(1st time for all 4 of us) food was fair...1st of all the complimentary cornbread was hard and cold, when mentioned to waiter, he responded " it's been under the light warmer" shrugged his shoulders, took it back but didn't offer a fresh cooked pan...vegetables were undercooked although we ordered it well cooked...prices very high , food lukewarm...not a happy camper...1st and last visit for sure

While staying at the Gaylord Texan for a business trip, we decided to try Saltwater Willy's. Big mistake. Like my title says, I am not picky, but I couldnt believe this. Mahi mahi is a white fish, theirs was not. The fries and fried shrimp was the poorest excuse for fried food I have ever had, and that is hard to screw up. Service was horrible, place was filthy. Would never go back, the only thing that keeps it open is the flow of first time visitors and the location.

Saltwater Willy's reminded me of a restaurant that has simply passed its prime. Nothing in particular stood out; service and atmosphere ho-hum, food nothing terribly special. That said, service after the order was prompt and food was very fresh.
Recommend the crab cake dinner and fish & chips. The fried jumbo shrimp was bland and not deveined (yeah, that's shrimp poop).
So, if you're looking for a quick fix for some cookie-cutter seafood, this is your place, but don't expect to be wowed.
