Food was average but the service was very slow, it was the off season so maybe that had something to do with it but I won’t be coming back.

Birthday Celebration and experience was nothing special. Cocktails were diluted from sitting at the bar after being made, food was cold when it should have been hot. Server had no assistant... and the service was subpar. No happy birthday anything.

Once again, Willie G's was excellent food, service, beverage and ambience. Accommodating when we had extra friends drop by, busy tho they were! One can count on the level of excellence here. The service is always top notch. The friendliness of the entire staff is most welcoming. The view is relaxing and interesting, with the ships, dolphin and people going by at the Harbor. I highly recommend Willie G's, and their Happy Hour is one of the best on the Island!

Food was good 4 out of 5. Service was sloppy and rushed. Server kept showing up and pushing us to order.

The biggest foul was they were not enforcing mask wearing. Allowing customers to roam around the restaurant without masks. Our server pulled hers down halfway through service. We asked her to wear it which she did.

When we first arrived the host suggested we wait in the bar but we declined because one of the bartenders was not wearing a mask.

It’s not enough to have a policy, it needs to be enforced. We did speak to the manager about it and he was nice about it but based on his response I don’t think anything will change. We won’t go back.

Other than one of the dishes that we received was not one that was ordered, it was very wonderful experience. I would recommend the the waitresses use a notepad to verify ordered food.

Ordered Filet steaks medium well. One steak was fine and the other was rare in the middle. The steak was taken back to the kitchen where it was cooked more and re-served. Everyone was finished eating by time steak return so it was taken home in a to go box. Reservations were at 5 pm We arrived and was promptly seated. Drink order was placed and received 20 mins later. Wife asked for lemons to add to her coke and waiter had to be reminded again after about 15 mins. Not sure why we had these hiccups as we have eaten there before with everything flawless Manager was made aware of the steak issue.

Please bring back your crab/avacado/mango pyramid. Your crab/asparagus isn't as good. I won't order again.

Being a full time resident if Galveston we fo to Willie G’s frequently. The last 3 times have been very disappointing. Slow service, on one occasion and sub-par food in 2. On our last visit yesterday their were 4 of us. All of us ordered gumbo or chowders. All 4 came out barely warm. Our server took them back and we waited probably 20 mins for them to come back. They were still not hot, hot but edible and we didn’t want to wait again. Then 30 minutes later our entrees finally showed up. One was a salad which was good, however we requested extra dressing twice and it was never brought. One was the Snapper special, it was very good but not as hot as it should have been and our guest didn’t want to send it back.

My fried shrimp with fries and my other guest with fried oysters were almost ice cold. This is totally unacceptable. The manager came to the table after about 10 minutes and apologized and offered to replace our food. At that point we were through and declined.

We did order coffee that was delivered full of coffee grounds.

We were all disappointed and certainly embarrassed by this visit. Especially since our guest were from out of town and we had raved about Willie G’s. We have to give serious consideration before returning.

Always feel safe going to a Landrys restaurant. Overall, i rate Willie G’s Galveston as the one with the best location and ambiance. However , it took quite a longer time for our meal to be served. This was compensated by the pleasant front and wait staff, beautiful scenery and the great weather anyways.

Favorite snapper item off the menu. Many flying insects. Wine glass appears dirty but just so stained it needs to be replaced. Food was okay but usually it is amazing. Our waiter was good.

My wife and I had a truly delightful lunch outside on the patio overlooking the harbor. Our table location was excellent being essentially adjacent the water. The server (Robert) was absolutely perfect: the food choices recommended, the order and timing of bringing us the different courses and the food, per se, were awesome. We were pleased to share our profound appreciation with Robert. Happily, we've been proud Landry's Select Club members for several years, and have enjoyed our privileges and experienced exemplary dining throughout the country. Willie G's seafood preparations including of course amazing clam chowder and gumbo as precursors to phenomenal salmon dishes completed a fantastic day at the beach -- Galveston style!

The food was delicious and service was great. Even though it's white tablecloth, we took the risk of taking our 3yr old. The staff didn't flinch and handed her a kids menu with crayons that she got to enjoy while we visited. The Del Mar plate was delicious - our little munchkin dove right in even though we bought her a kids meal. But we all ate that too! Needless to say, happy tummies all around.

If you're in the area, definitely stop by this gem!

Reservation was for 2030. Still had to wait 15 minutes on top of that but understandable with everything going on. Approached the Hostess to see how much longer and she sat us at an empty table (was empty the whole time we were waiting.) the table was visibly dirty but she didn’t seem to care. Our waiter (Corinthian I believe was his name) turned the night around. He acknowledged the stain before us saying anything n changed the table cloth. He was attentive. My date ordered a steak well done (it wasn’t) n he took care of that as well. He was great and made our experience overall great.
