Willie's Restaurant & Bar
Throw in a few original drinks, great service, a new convenient location, and a hard working dedicated staff, and Willie's Restaurant and Bar rivals the best in Louisiana.
I came here on my birthday I really enjoyed everything and the food was really nice I definitely will be returning again
Good food and nice environment but food is a bit pricey, good restuarant for upper class,not so much for mid class.
The fried catfish and the Saintsation Poboy were great. The shrimp and grits were good -- would have been better without so much gravy, and if the shrimp tails had been removed.
Service was very good every time.
Very noisy, but very busy.
Meeting friends for dinner. Waitress was friendly, beer keg problems led to change in drink order, butterfly shrimp kind of bland, gumbo was tasty, Cajun queso was alright. Very expensive - husband and I split entree and still dinner was over 80$. Not sure if we would go back.
Food is good... standard Louisiana fair. The gumbo and bisque were especially good and the best part of the evening.
I reserved a table 4 6 what seated till seven not happy
The food and service was excellent as always. One of our favorite places to eat.
First time there and the food was amazing! Will definitely be returning.
great expeirence nice people good food plenty of room to sit, but ya'll need new chairs
Great experience. Having reservations helped a lot.
Amazing as always. The food and the service is always excellent.
Excellent as always
Nice place... the food is good.... drinks could be a little better!
The food was amazing! I had the catfish with Ponchatrain sauce with a side of asparagus! Definitely must try it out. I would love to go there daily and try different dishes! Baton Rouge gem you don’t want to miss out on
Great food. Great drinks! We ordered the Frychos and they were absolutely delicious.
Server was very attentive and helpful. Food was delish. We have added Willie's to our go-to list of restaurants. Can't wait to go again.
We celebràted my son's 50th birthday at this great restaurant, his favorite. We loved the food, and the service was excellent. I wish I lived closer to Baton Rouge so I could dine there frequently. My son does. There are many specialty dishes from which to choose, the portions are generous, and the prices reasonable.
I requested to be seated at a standard table when I made my reservation, but we were seated at a high top table instead. We were tucked away in the corner near the bar, which made it easy for our server to overlook us - which seemed to happen several times. Other than those 2 minor issues, it was a good experience.
We went for brunch. The food was good- the fried green tomatoes appetizer was phenomenal! Drawbacks: no fruit available, had to ask for water, more coffee and more cream. Waitress was nice, but should have checked on our coffee and cream levels - and water should be a given. Also, the hash browns are skinny, small French fries - not real hash browns. Coffee was good - nice and strong!! Please offer FRUIT!!! :)
This was my first time dining at Willie's. Tried it for Restaurant Week. Food was good and plates were all full sizes, which surprised us.
Date night for my husband and I
Willie's is my go to place when I want to enjoy a casual, comfortable meal out. The drink selection and wonderful menu is always satisfying!
We love the atmosphere and the food at Willie's. My husband's favorite is the Seafood Stuffed Potato. We had boiled crawfish the last 2 times we ate there and they were delicious and reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend to anyone.
Great as always. Long time customer. Staff is totally awesome. We ended up with s party of eight. All were well pleased. Several had never been there.
The food was delicious. The restaurant was packed so service was understandably slow. I actually think our waitress was the hostess who took one for the team. But we left happy and full of good food. It was a great way to celebrate Mother's Day. Crawfish was excellent!!!!
It was amazing!
Crawfish were excellent. Two potatoes & 1 corn with each order of 3 or 5 lbs. Had to pay for extra corn with 5 lb platter. Fast service. Louisiana Bread is a favorite.
The food was amazing! The portions were large and as good as the food was the the two young ladies that were our two servers in the High Top area made our experience outstanding.
We really enjoyed the atmosphere and the food was superb. My only complaint would be that our waiter/not the trainer that was with her continued to forget to bring things that we had asked for giving us her reason that it slipped her mind. Overall everything else was great for my birthday!

We had a reservation but still had to wait quite a while. The food was good and worth the wait.
Always recommending this restaurant!!! Food is always awesome. We’ve been going since they were at old location. Staff is always great. Everything is great.
Prices should be on the menu I felt scammed will not be back
We enjoyed our awesome food and great service from the wait staff. Everyone was so nice and friendly.
Crawfish were absolutely perfect. Sangria is incredible. Service had serious issues because waiter was double-seated when we arrived and never able to catch back up. He was sweet and apologetic though.
My first visit to Willie's was a success! Our party of 8 sat on the patio to enjoy the nice weather. I usually will eat all the food put in front of me but this time, I needed a to-go box! Everyone in the party got something different and it all looked delicious. I will definitely be back, several times!
As visitors to BTR, my colleagues and I are always looking for a great place to eat. Willie's is now on our "We'll be back" list!
Overall great experience for our 1st stop in Louisiana! We had the boiled shrimp and the crawfish. The seasoning was amazing! Salads were super fresh! We also had the cajun donuts for dessert. Overall pleasant experience. It was super busy and a bit loud, but not terrible. Our family of 4 paid less than $100 with gratuity.
I had high expectations and the food did not disappoint. All our food was excellent including apps, soup, and entree's. My husband's Redfish Ryn was absolutely wonderful. We will definitely be back.
We stopped in for lunch on our way through town. Nice atmosphere and good service.
Our waitress was outstanding. Food wwas good and hot. Awesome service
