Willie G's is always a good experience. Service, and food was good and sitting out by the bay is fun. It was very loud inside this last time because of Happy hour . It is usually not too loud though.i recommend the Seafood dishes.

Booked on open table 2 days in advance. Only to show up and was told the restaurant was closed until 6:30 for a private party. Needless to say I was turned away. Attempted to find another option in the Area that was close and had room for four. Had no such luck and then had to pay for parking for a reservation i made, but was turned away at the door due to a private event. Hopefully next time someone blocks out the restaurant during this time frame.
My family and I were looking forward to dining here, but now we will never know how it is.

Salmon was over cooked and risotto was cold. Salmon was bland and sauce that accompanied it didn’t team well with salmon. This was the typical Landry disappointment. :(

I had recommended Willie G's to our group of ladies heading out on a cruise the following day. EVERYONE thought it was FANTASTIC! Thank you very much. Also, would like to give a HUGE SHOUT OUT to Cody … she was WONDERFUL. Very attentive!!!
We're coming back with our family on May 24th for a cruise the following day and will be calling to get reservations made for 22!

We spent the night at the Harbor House next door before our cruise and we’re able to snag a last minute reservation thanks to Open Table. What a lucky move on our part on a busy Saturday night! Great drinks, incredible shrimp, great warm wonderful service. Another great meal at a great Landry restaurant!!

This is the best restaurant of this class in Galveston. The only thing better is Rudy and pacos which can be pricey. Don’t waste your time at Olympia or fisherman’s warf. This is the best hands down!!

My wife and I had a wonderful dinner for our last night in Galveston. Our server was very friendly and helpful with the menu and option. She was delightful to talk with and not overly pushy; she seemed to know when we wanted to be left alone or when to be present. The food was excellent and was the best meal we had in Texas. My wife and I both commented on how it ranks near the top for any we've had in the United States.

We eat here whenever on the island. The young waitress (part of the work program from the Ukraine ) was nice, the drinks and food were good, maybe was a bit put off by the overall lack of ambiance in our location. And this is only my fault as I wanted a booth and clearly saw the one facing kitchen doors was the only one available. Husband is a chef and loved his oysters Rockefeller , our guest had the steak salad that was delicious as well. I highly suggest ordering the appetizer Oyster Bar trash as a light entree (lump crab, blackened shrimp and steamed rice) and along with their Caesar salad is excellent ! Will definitely return.

This Willie G's in Galveston, TX is one of the Better ones, it's a must try. The Gumbo is delicious and always on point with the recipe. The Hazelnut Fish option was very good. We had a Trout (grilled) that was very tasty. This restaurant has become the Go-To seafood place for us when we visit the island !!

We traveled to Galveston with friends to celebrate a friend’s Birthday. The weather was terrible, but the service more than made up for the weather. I forgot the waitress’s name, but she was Spanish and had a smile on her face the whole time. She anticipated our needs and was always available. One fact—one of our companions mentioned as she placed her order that she hoped the green beans were cooked, as the last time she came there, hers were not cooked. Would you believe, that when our meals came out, our friend’s plate did not have beans on it. The waitress has left them for a few extra minutes, to make sure they were cooked. You can be sure wewill

It was a great venue for our 31st Anniversary. We split a redfish entree which was plenty for 2. I had mango majito and a bahama rum drink and didn’t even catch a buzz. Mainly sugar and juice. One thing negative is it was happy hour but if you were sitting at a white table cloth, you had to pay regular price. What’s with that??
Overall it was a good experience
