Diner Reviews
  • "We have dined often at Willie Gs. We have have always enjoyed it. Our visit Saturday night was not so. We found the food to be not of the caliber that is usually is. We also found our waiter to be sarcastic and just blah."

  • "Rather than chain in the Galleria area, do local. And do it because it's delicious. Save the del frisco's or capital grille when you're stuck in St. Louis or Ohio and really need it."

  • "Nice relax mature vibe in the restaurant. Good for a romantic meal or a getaway for a group of friends. From start to finish the service was amazing. The waitress recommended that our group try the Sangria and fish, which both were amazing. My girlfriend and I both agreed the apple cobbler was the best we ever had. I still shocked how affordable this place was. Even if it was a little more expensive it would still be worth it. Made reservations from my phone, so convenient"

  • "I went for dinner this past weekend around 7:00. It wasnt crowded. There were mostly rich looking older white people. I had the dining special with three courses. The gumbo was tasty. I had fried seafood and really liked the shrimp, the catfish was too fishy and I wasn't too fond of the stuffed crab. The chocolate pecan pie was decadent!"

  • "You can always depend on Willy G's to provide an excellent dining experience. Our dinner was expertly prepared. And our waiter made sure to take care of my husband's requests for no starches on his plate, and was able to bring him some wonderful sauteed mushrooms as a substitution for the potatoes. My shimp dish was perfect. We will be back."

  • "I took my girlfriend to this restaurant and it was amazing the waiting was a bit too long but only because it was full and pack so that was a good thing to see that they have business constant but overall it was a great experience coming here"

  • "We do not live in Houston, but any time we are in Houston or just driving through, Willie G's is our go to restaurant. The food is excellent and they are willing to make changes so that your meal is perfect for you. I especially like the Snapper Charlie!"

  • "The food and service was excellent. I planned a romantic dinner for my King and he was extremely impressed by the menu, service and atmosphere. My romantic dinner evolved into a wonderful evening overall We'll definitely be returning. Thanks"

  • "Seafood was very good; however, the vegetables were unacceptable, not deserving to be put on a plate for consumption."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Although they were booked solid they kept the valets running smoothly and food arrived promptly without being too rushed. Waiter made us feel relaxed and not rushed."

  • "Went here with my wife for Valentine's day. Big mistake. Had reservations but had to wait for 20+mins and was requested to sit in big table shared with other couples; said NO. Got a table in room which was packed with so many tables cramped in; could hear couple on next table even though they were whispering. Service was horrible; got our drinks after 15 mins and the salad was pathetic; Wendy's have a better salad than here; ordered rib eye steak (medium) and what we were served was a burnt piece of steak; last straw; called the manager and give him my piece of mind. They overbooked than what the kitchen or the wait staff could handle; they became greedy cause of the big day instead of focusing on quality. will NEVER ever step in there."

    Dined on 2/17/2014
  • "I have visited your restaurant several times and chose it for Valentines because of the seafood variety. The service was horrible (front and back room), and the experience was a nightmare. My guest's food was ill-prepared, and my entrée (which was served before my appetizers!!!!) was missing ingredients!!!! The second attempt was better but not your usual. I know it was a holiday, but this is not the first Valentine dinner I have ever had, but clearly one that I will not remember fondly! The fact I was not charged for the dinner was nice but does change my opinion...you guys blew it!"

  • "Crazy crowded lobby area for valentines day. We luckily had reservations and was sat quickly. At first to an oddly shaped table, but was very accommodating when we said we wanted a more standard table. Our server Sam was very attentive, but not too much. Great wine bottle service. Enjoyed dinner from the special 4-course special menu. Food was great. Service was great, especially considering the occasion. Just as you would expect from a Landry's restaurant. We'll be back."

  • "food was not up to par. the eggs on the benedict were over cooked. they also left the oysters off the oysters benedict. we will go back but we think we need to wait awhile"

  • "You get everything you pay for and then some. Loved the outside seating and Ms. Rita is an amazing waitress. The evening was made extra special."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Excellent food and service (by Joe Green) fade in memory after leaving. What endures is the cacaphony of voices rising above the bass line of otherwise inaudible music. The level of sound precluded talking at our table without shouting and adding to the roar. It struck me when I entered, and the only relief came on a trip to the rest room! We will happily return when the acoustics have been improved."

  • "We didn't get seated until one hour after our reservation. The girls that we're sitting people were unorganized and non applogetic about the wait. When we finally got sorted we were sitting by the bar where every other customer was waiting so I really couldn't have a conversation with my wife. Food came out burnt, they did re-cook our order but nothing in the way of I'm sorry or anything like that. We go to Willie G's a lot but each time it seems to be getting worse and worse. Think I will mark this one off our list to dine out."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Always wanted to come here! Came in 30mins early from reservation time; but was seated after people who walked in without reservations! Waited 10mins for drink order! Waited another 10mins for bread! I ordered Snapper Michelle and wife ordered seafood platter. When my food came out, the shrimp, crab lumps, scallops and green beans were lukewarm Other than that, the fish was great but the seafood platter was under par! Pappadeaux's Seafood Platter is the benchmark! The dessert menu was typical so we decided to get dessert at Dessert Gallery instead. The server hurried us out because it was the end of the day. Needless to say, we should've eaten at Pappadeaux or Babin's! So skip Willie G's and spend your money at Pappadeaux or Babin's!"

  • "I wanted a sit down dinner with my wife where we could enjoy each other's company without the kids. I felt as soon as we sat down we were being rushed toward the door. I believe they overbooked the Valentine's dinner time slots and focused on turnover instead of providing a good experience. I'm sure they made a tremendous amount of money that evening, but we won't be back. I don't mind being rushed at a different type of restaurant, but at that price level I expect to be able to relax a bit."

  • "I really enjoyed our dinner at willie g's on Valentine's day. Considering it was really packed we didn't wait long to be seated, the service was great and our food was out in a timely manner. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to my friends. And they even had valet parking."

  • "This was a former favorite. Sadly, on this visit the food was almost inedible. My sea bass with lobster and shrimp was mostly covered in butter, to the point I had to scrape it off! The lobster and shrimp were tiny bits and tasted sour. Both my husband and I felt ill when we left. The restaurant was so cold we could barely stand it. We tried to point out our concerns to a manager but none could be found. We won't give it another chance."

  • "We had a valentines day reservation at 7:30p, and arrived right on time. I was surprised to see that the entry lobby was a sea of people. When I checked in, we were informed that they were running about 30 minutes behind. It was a nice evening, so we took a short walk (there was absolutely nowhere to sit) and returned at 8:00p. Our table was still not ready. Long story short: we were seated an hour and ten minutes after our reservation time. This restaurant hugely overbooks reservations. DO NOT go here unless you're willing to wait a LONG time."

  • "On January 30th reservations were made thru Open Table for a Valentine's Dinner for my son and his girlfriend. the reservation was for 7:15 p.m. they arrived at 7:00. The evening before February 13th Willie G's called to confirm his reservation for 7:15. Long story short they were not seated until 8:10. Upon asking the (3) hostesses who were manner less at the desk when they would be called, they were completely ignored. Other couples with later reservations were seated before them. Why make a reservation and not honor it? My husband and I recommended that he and his girlfriend go to Willie G's because we luv the food there. Yes the food is delicious but front service on Valentines Day specifically was horrific."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "I took 45 minutes past our reservation time to get seated. Even then, the table wasn't prepared when we were seated. I understand it was Valentines Day but they were obviously overbooked. Other than that the food and service were good."

  • "Great lunch from start to finish. Our waiter was attentive and all of our meals were great! Would definitely eat at willie G's again!"
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "We arrived promptly on time and I was greeted by an outstanding host. As the host was speaking with me she was abruptly interupted by a manager who was rather rude. and then walks away. Later the waiter takes our food order and the same manager is eyeing our table from a distance. Towards the end of our meal there are not many people dinning in the restaurant but there are still many people at the bar. So my table sat talked for a bit. It undoubtly bothered the manager because at this point he is no longer eyeing for a distance he is standing about 15 feet away from our table leaning against a partition as if he is waiting for us to leave. My dining experience was not the best and it made for an uncomfortable evening for my group."

  • "Always excellent. Had the oysters & fried green tomato appetizer -- doesn't get any better. Then a bowl of gumbo and you have a perfect dinner. And, our waiter Sasson, is the best ever - clone him!"

  • "Food is good. Especially the fish dishes. The service has been excellent both times I've dined @ willie g's. Really top notch."

  • "The meal was OK. The waitress was not good at all. When we asked what the special was for the day, she said she did not know, and that the specials generally were not as good as the menu items anyway. Not true....... Was not crowded and she barely came to our table. She was also not familiar with the Landry's Select benefits. When the manager came to our table, we was also rude. I have noticed a difference in Willie G's since it is a Landry's restaurant. This will be my last visit here. I'm not a complainer, but it seems my last few visits here I was extremely unimpressed with the food and/or service."

  • "We've enjoyed Willy G's in the past but the last time we went our experience was not quite as good. Our food was decent, not great, but the most troubling thing was our service. The waitress was nice however when ordering she kept trying to up charge us. We thought she was just being helpful but as it turns out, every little thing she was mentioning came at a charge which she failed to mention. I did not thoroughly check the bill until I got home but she overcharged us on several things. Just disappointed because we use to like this place."
