We had arrived on a VERY late flight and was passing through The Woodlands on the way home around 9 pm and were starving! We decided to stop by Willie's! They have never failed us! We were seated immediately. Got "the usual" - Chicken Willie and Fries, along with Iced Tea. Normally we also get the Fried Mushrooms - but... More

Food was ok. Service was acceptable. Sat on the patio. Nearby play area for kids is great if you have young children, but it was annoying to have kids running around without adult supervision.

If you love buffalo sauce, their buffalo chicken tenders are just amazing. Such good flavor. I also enjoy the chips and salsa, and occasionally, the ice house queso. Other friends recommend their burgers, I can't comment on anything else, as I only get the buffalo tenders.

My wife ordered the chicken willie salad and when asked, opted for the small. When it was brought to the table, there was a huge amount of salad makings and a tiny bit of chicken in the middle. When my wife questioned the wait person about it, her reply was the only difference between the small and the large salad... More

We chose Willie's Grill & Icehouse because of its convenient location to our hotel. They were busy but service was quick and friendly. It is a casual dining establishment and the prices were pretty good for what they served. My only complaint is that the fried crawfish tails didn't taste fresh and had an off flavor. However, the shrimp and... More

strange ordering process you go through a line upon entering and place order with a person who writes it down on a check, then you get your own soft drink and find your own table. service was a little slow but pleasant

My husband and I were captivated from the moment we walked out of the Walmart on College Park Dr. We went straight over to it that day. Willie's looks like the usual ice house...wood with roll up doors like a garage. They have a surprising list of beer on ice. That's an ice house! The condiments and flatware reside in... More

We've visited one other Willie's and this one was even better. Golden fried shrimp were fantastic, less batter and more meat. The Chicken Fried steak was huge and also very good. Friendly wait staff and a fun atmosphere, we'll be back!
