Our owner took our group of 12 to Willie G's for our Christmas gift. We went on a Wednesday night, so the restaurant was not crowded. Our server was awesome, Anna saw to all our needs. She was friendly and knowledgeable of the menu, very helpful in helping us choose our dinners. Our food arrived promptly and the presentation was... More

Great food and service! The seafood was great and we highly recommend trying the Snapper Lefitte! It was delicious! For being our first time in Galveston, this place was great!

The food was outstanding, especially the Oysters Rockefeller and stuffed flounder. The chef went above and beyond. It was also a nice view and the waitress was very attentive. As always, it is great to be able to visit local.

Birthday trip, went to Willie G's with the wife. Parking is $20 unless validated - got ticket, validation, and two millennial at the gate were too busy on phones to see that they were trying to charge me $20 for what should have been free. Had to exit car in rain and beat on window to get them to give... More

All I can say is we came here I think everyday either for Drinks n Appetizers on the 'porch' or for dinner. We literally hung out on the porch for a few hours to talk and eat while discussing properties we'd viewed. The servers did not care that we stayed and stayed... Plus the food was very good!

The food for happy hour was not very appealing. Drinks were good. Atmosphere good. We popped in early evening- great view of harbor.

I went for Happy Hour on their patio with my small dog. In the year I have lived in Galveston, so far the best service I have had was provided by Bianca at Willie G's. I cannot imagine a more helpful or professional server.

Even this place is owned by Landry's which encompasses some 400 restaurants, it still holds its own while putting out some tasty dishes. We started our meal off with the 'Bar Trash' which was jumbo lump crab and grilled shrimp in a garlic and butter sauce served with French bread for dipping. This was very tasty dish, for sure. We...

There is so much to try in Galveston, I probably wouldn't do this more than once. It has a nice outside patio but you can only see one little slice of harbor. The expensive menu had good looking seafood, and the Crab, Mango and Avocado Tower appetizer was tasty and easily split by 3 people, but the steak in the... More
