we arrived before the sunset and we enjoy the view of the harbor and all the ships. My steak was great, my wife loved her food except for the chicken. The chicken flavor and consistency seems to be a problem of the island not the restaurant itself.

I would definitely recommend it to friends and family for the quality and taste of the food - it was delicious. We had four in our group and we all ordered something different and we all loved what we ate.
It was expensive (with tip over $200) but very good. However, we had not-so-good service, even though the server was very sweet and she was trying very hard. The drinks were very expensive and we had to wait for quite a while to get them, even though we could see across the restaurant that they were on the bar just sitting there. One of the drinks was on the rocks and it was very watered down by the time they were served to us. One of the martinis was incorrectly made and had to be returned and remade. We are not picky people, and never want to make a scene. But with such expensive drinks AND when you specifically ask for a particular 'splash or just a drop' of lime, and almost a shot was put in, we had no choice but to return it. Again, the taste of the food was wonderful, but it seems so expensive, we would have to wait for a special occasion to return. thank you for the opportunity to give my opinion.

This was me and my family second time to do Mother's Day at Willie G's this time was not pleasant as last year. The food was served cold and there was only one complimentary appetizer for our table of 10 which was impossible for all of us to share, I thought because the size of the party two would have been provided just for customer service. Some had to send their food back to reheat and some of us just ate ours luke warm.

The crab stuffed shrimp is amazing and so is the lobster bites. Great to sit outside and enjoy awesome food in the evening!

My daughter had the stuffed flounder with a double serving of potatoes. The presentation was poor. It did not look inviting. Plus the flounder was dry.

No problems, no issues. A nice place to visit that practices consistancy in food and service - you know what you are going to get. No surprises; and usually that's good. Recommended for a nice meal.

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!!
