“Terrible terrible food”
Reviewed December 5, 2012

Stopped by for dinner on a Saturday night. Nice server and good service, but food was cold and bland. Extremely expensive for crud seafood. Even Red Lobster can put out a better plate of seafood than this place and costs a few dollars less. Avoid the food. The entire restaurant smells like cigarette smoke so we had to eat outside. Can't believe this place is open. Go to the other restaurants near the mall. Worst meal I've had in awhile

“Very Enjoyable”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

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.

“A gem!”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

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.

“watch out for willy's”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

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

“I am not picky, but this was as bad as I have seen.”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

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.
