    We sat for 15 minutes and had to go tell the desk that no one had been to our table, so not a great start. However once we got a server she was great and the manager took care of us. Food was outstanding and we had the ability to talk as it wasn’t too loud. Overall a great experience.

    My husband and I come to Galveston about once or twice a year. We discovered Willi G’s a few months ago. He saw ridiculous reviews which our visit disproved. Our experience this time was fantastic just like last time. This time we sat outside. The food was scrumptious and Margarita, our server appeared to be somewhat new. Even so, she was charming and did a great job of taking care of us. What a lovely place for some upscale dining.

    I would have rated ambience 5 star, but for the crowd which admittedly translated to $$ for the restaurant. Our food was excellent and location was very good, right on the harbor.

    It has been several years since I have been to Willie Gs last time it had the best service of all the restaurants on the island. This time it was not great, not good at the best fair. No refills of water after asking several times, when we got our food the french fries were cold and when we ordered another margarita it was not the same as the first one. My wife wanted a salad on the side the waiter subbed it for her fries with out asking, for the price I paid on the food I should have had better service. I will not go back and give some other restaurant my money next time I am in Galveston.

    Dined on the patio at Willie G’s. Our waiter Robert and food were great. As the sun set it hit our table so we had to adjust our seating a bit to avoid the direct heat so an awning would have helped. Overall still a great dining experience!

    We have eaten at Willy G’s before so we brought our friends here for the first time. The fried seafood platter was not worth the price. My friends steak was perfect and my Redfish was good. But to be honest it wasn’t worth $185.00 dinner

    We were in Galveston for our belated anniversary celebration. We usually try to eat at Willie G's as we like the ambiance and the food is delicious. We liked the low-key ambience of eating there on a Monday evening. It was quiet and we could actually hear each other, which on a Saturday evening can be a bit challenging. We plan on coming back during the week more often. It's great. We also felt less rushed because it wasn't crowded.

Ambiance is perfect! This visit they even called me ahead to inform us of traffic issues at Tiki Island so we were able to re-route and come in by ferry. Love, love , love this restaurant!!!

    The food was not properly seasoned. There was not even salt on the fries. The risotto was not properly prepared. The texture was very dry instead of creamy. My mother was satisfied with her fried catfish, oysters, and shrimp. It is nice to eat with a view of the water, but there are many places in Galveston with a view. The server was polite, but was not knowledgeable of the ingredients in the food. I would not recommend this restaurant for anyone who prefers flavorful food or anyone with dietary restrictions.

    The service was amazing. We sat outside and the atmosphere was great. The food was very good very pricey for the specials, got moneys worth. The only suggestion. If you order the bread pudding, request more of the sauce. It is a bit dry about half way in.

    Overall feeling of mismanagement. Not our servers fault, but he wasn’t impressive either. All in all, very mediocre at best. Disappointed with appetizers and the fact we tried to order two different desserts and they were suddenly out of both. No one even offered to validate parking. Never got water refills. Ever. Felt generally unattended until we got someone’s attention. We’ve had good times there in the past but last night was a total L.

    We were so disappointed the food was not good at all we had a variety of food and drinks. Salmon was dry, fish was under cooked pasta was extremely spicy overall we were so disappointed. I had a spicy margarita and there were no spicy just bad. The waitress was in a hurry and I understand she had other customers and I understand all restaurants are under staff. We came from Houston for Easter and it wasn't great at all.

    Willie G's is our local go-to for special occasions and date nights. We've been going there since they opened and love the atmosphere, the food, and the service. Elizabeth, one of the managers, is awesome and always checks on guests to make sure their experience is a great one. Our favorite waiter, Nenad, is great! Not to say that all of the servers aren't great, but we love Nenad and request him every time we go. We love that we always get a window seat when we request one, and the fact that they accommodate our family member's food allergy with ease. The only drawback is that during high tourist season, we can rarely get a seat at the bar when we just show up for happy hour, but that is not the restaurant's fault. It shows people love going there - just like us!
