Diner Reviews
  • "I thoroughly enjoyed my dinner out at Willy's Steakhouse. The food was superb as was the atmosphere. The service was top notch and I never felt that I was being rushed to order. They allowed us to take our time and order at our leisure. I will be recommending this place to all of my family and friends. Delicious!!"

  • "We had made a reservation for 7:45 on a Saturday night for dinner. When we arrived our table wasn't ready yet, so we had to wait in the waiting area, which isn't really a waiting area at all. It is a major intersection in the restaurant so we were constantly in somebody's way. We were seated 20 minutes late next to a table of the loudest 11 people I have ever seen. We couldn't even have a conversation about what appetizer to order because we couldn't hear each other. Overall the food was good, pretty standard steak house fare, the steaks were cooked perfectly, but the ambiance ruined the whole evening. This is the second time we've had this same experience here. Not sure we'll be back, the food isn't worth all of the yelling."

  • "I went to willys steakhouse for the first time for my birthday last year with my fiancée and it was delicious. We went back just last week and it was even better than I remembered. Great steak. Great apps--fried lobster ravioli was incredible. Can't wait to go back!"

  • "As much as I enjoyed the food, I really despise a la carte menus. To pay good money for a steak and then have to pay to have a vegetable on the side really turns me off."

  • "Wonderful service, especially with Nancy, who always remembers us, has great suggestions and is an excellent waitress. The multiple plates of sushi were terrific and the swordfish was cooked perfectly. Even the gin and tonics get a high rating due to highly carbonated tonic that night...not a common experience at restaurant bars..and no small compliment if you are a fan of gin and tonic drinks! Willys is always a special and terrific place to dine for meat, seafood and sushi...all equally excellent."

  • "Wonderful steakhouse & sushi. Delicious food. Very expensive. Small - very hard to get reservations. Noise level was quiet as we were there at 430."

  • "One does not have to travel into Boston for a fabulous steak. Just go to Willy's Steakhouse in Shrewsbury. Their steaks are always phenominal and even though it is not an inexpensive night out, you still are not paying the prices you have to pay in Boston and you get valet service for just a few dollars. Can't get that in Boston! The atmosphere is cozy, yet lively. Service is always great. LOVE this place!"

  • "We love this place and we usually go there if celebrating something special and it was the night of our 2nd anniversary. We both were disappointed in the time of the food delivery. The Sushi was very slow my wife had her app before I got mine I didn't want her's to get cold. WHen our dinner arrived my steak was overdone had it sent back and she again ate before her dinner got cold. It wasn't a busy MOnday night. For an expensive meal I was somewhat disappointed :("

  • "The quality of the food and the efficiency and friendliness of the wait staff are second to none. Plus the ambiance is superb. Plenty of options to choose from on the menu. But the most important factor was the taste of the prepared food--beef, pasta and seafood."

  • "The service was really just mediocre; server came back about 3 times to take an order when we clearly were not ready and our menus were still open all 3 times he came over. We ordered sushi as an appetizer and were told that it would be at least 30 minutes because they had a big sushi to go order. Why wouldn't you have the to go customer wait instead of the customers that you have sitting in your seats? I asked for my salmon to be cooked medium, it came well done and dry as a bone; under salted and tasteless. I did not send it back because they clearly do not understand how to cook salmon. The sushi was average. First and last time here."

  • "It was so full and very noisy. We've eben at the weekend maybe that's why. We've been here with less people and it was a perfect nice romantic dinner. unfortunately and Steaks werde mit Cooked as Wished but they cooked immediately New ones which were perfect!"

  • "Willy's is not only the best place in Shrewsbury, it is our favorite restaurant anywhere. The ambience is truly New England with brick walls and romantic lighting. The service is top notch, quick, polite, and friendly. The food is of course the most important feature of any restaurant and, if possible, it is even better than the service and ambience. We love Willy's and so will you."

  • "Dinner was excellent. We went for my husband's birthday and it was St. Patrick's Day. It was a Monday night and pretty quiet. The service was great and the food was excellent. The only issue I have is that I find Willy's very pricey but it's great for a special occasion and I always get a delicious meal!"

  • "Well I had heard very good things about Willy's for a couple of years now and was waiting to try them out. Finally did this past Sunday and it was a major let down. Food was ok. My steak was pretty good but nothing to write home about. I was there with family and about a 3rd of the steaks were overcooked. The big disappointment was the service. It was painfully slow and borderline rude. Our waitress Sharon was slow and rude. She took drink orders one at a time for our party of 10. So yes one person would order a coke and she would leave ignoring other requests and bring a coke back and than ask the next person and so on. Really??? Oh well first time visit is my last visit."

  • "Extremely disappointed with service, ambiance, loudness, pricey & overall value & experience. The reservation time was wrong, requested table was poor. Service was slow. Glasses were dirty. It was very loud. Expensive & everything was ala carte. This was a special occasion & was embarrassing. No where in the same league as other steakhouses In the local area."

  • "To start........Made a Reservation days before for 7:15 Once we arrived ( at 7:10) we had to wait for a table. I thought reserving meant there would be a table waiting ?? We where seated at the front of the place in the corner. My wife was frozen the entire time. I guess I should have caught that while we waited for the table as there was a portable foot warmer to the side of the table. Ughhh. Our waitress ( I don't recall her name ) was Fabulous."

  • "We visited during Restaurant Week so naturally it was busy.We ordered drinks and an extra appetizer [sushi], the problem was that we ordered off the Restaurant Week menu and received 1/2 portions [our printed bill indicated 1/2 portions as well].Our salad was small and our entrée was equally so with a blah presentation.We both ordered the Salmon with butternut squash which had a lemon and tomato garnish.The plate was screaming for a green veggie!Our salmon was a 3-4 oz portion, cooked perfectly, and on top of the dish was a tiny bowl holding the squash, which was very good too.All in all, good food, not a pretty presentation and not a normal sized portion. Dessert was also included.We will go back, just not for Restaurant Week!"

  • "When we arrived, we were promptly seated. The wait staff is very attentive and friendly. The martini drinks were excellent! Sushi was terrific. Steaks were delicious! Our side orders of garlic mashed potatoes and Asian vegetables were presented very nicely. Everything tasted excellent, including dessert. The atmosphere was classy too. Willy's is an excellent spot for a special occasion."

  • "The hostess was pleasant enough, but both the bartender and server were less than cordial. Our food was cold and was nothing special in terms of flavor or presentation. There are many other steakhouses in the Worcester area with better service, food, and ambience. We will not be dining here again."

  • "We had never been to Willy's before but had been by it a 100 times. We wanted to try a new place so we went. The food was perfect. The prices are higher but comparable to a high end steak place. My only wish was that it was a little warmer. Will go there again!"

  • "Perhaps Wednesday is a bad night, but tonight's experience was not up to the level we have come to expect at Willy's. Seating and service were both fast and efficient. The ambiance is always warm and a place to go for a quiet dinner for two. Sadly, the food was a let-down. My guest chose a steak from the specials menu; I chose steak tips from the regular menu. My guest explained that her steak was grainy in texture and tough, a view I shared with my steak tips. The mushroom and spinach veggies were literally awash on liquid that eating them risked soiling table linen and clothing. Normally we would have completed the meal with dessert and coffee but tonight we chose not to order dessert."

  • "Most of the dishes our group of 4 were phenomenal. Soft shell crab appetizer never disappoints us, nor does the sushi. Its always fresh and amazing. I typically don't order a sirloin, which I made a mistake by doing so this visit to Willy's. The Kona rubbed seasoning and gorogonzola topping was amazing, I think it was the actual steak that was too fatty or chewy which I wasn't expecting. The others in the group all had amazing dishes, Beef Wellington included which is typically my usual. I will definitely go back to that! All around good experience. Desserts were also amazing! Florida sunshine cake is always a must!"

The only problem I had was deciding on what to order, the selection is to hard to choose from considering everything sounds delicious."

  • "We had an 8pm reservation on a Saturday night and arrived to find 10 people waiting in the lobby - 4 of whom were also waiting for a table for 2. If we had plenty of time and not been starving, we might have waited, but neither was the case so we opted to eat at the bar. Glad we did because it was another 20 min before we would have been sat. That aside, we had some of the best steak and sides we have had in years, so glad we stayed!"

  • "Willy's really "honored" that this was a birthday dinner. Made sure we liked our table, host and waitress wished me Happy Birthday when I came in and sat down, and ended with a lit candle dessert (that no one requested). The food is fantastic and the service was great. Marlene, our waitress, was the best waitress we have experienced...perfect timing, honest suggestions,etc."

  • "No need to drive into Boston for a great steak as it can be found in Shrewsbury for a fraction of the price. Porterhouse steak and au gratin potato is the way to go! Interior is an old style building perfect for steak and martini. Forgot to mention the Sushi, definitely a great way to start a meal!"
