    Mashed potatoes were cold. Waitress was not the greatest. Never removed used plates and silverware as we used them. I asked for margarita with salt. She arrived with an unsalted glass of margarita. I asked again for a margarita with salt. She then brought me an empty salted glass and had me transfer the margarita to the salted glass myself. Not at all what I expected from a reservation only restaurant.

    Food was good except the spinach and crab ahells were dry and tasteless My husband shared a steak and found rude they gave it to me and extra plate to do our own share. Upscale restaurants will do in the kitchen and bring out. Waiter was well... not great.

    Willie G's was recommended by several UBER drivers, but we found the prices were high compared to the quality of service and food. I ordered a glass of Merlot and my wife drank sweat tea. I would have had a 2nd glass of wine, but the server did not revisit the table. My wife's tea ran out and we had to ask another server to bring a refill. Our salads came before the appetizer and the Calamari was "chewy". Our salads were excellent, but then the entree's showed up before we finished our salads. We felt "rushed". I ordered the Redfish Louisianne, loaded mashed potatoes and parmesan risotto, my wife had the fried shrimp, loaded mashed potatoes and roasted vegetables. The Parmesan Risotto was uninteresting and the roasted vegetables were under cooked. Loaded mashed potatoes were a hit. Entries were good, but the entire experience was not worth the $130 plus tip.

    We received excellent service and the food was great! We ordered Caesar salad and Chicken & Sausage gumbo to start. Yum-oh! The steak, chargrilled chicken and Shrimp, trout & crab meat were wonderful. We enjoyed Keylime pie and Creme Brulee for dessert. We booked our reservation through OpenTable for 5 at 7:45 and were seated right on time. Our server was outstanding!

    We waited one hour to get our food and then it was cold. desert took another 15 minutes. We probably won’t be back anytime soon. The food quality is so so, but it was cold. We really didn’t get a good food experience overall and we we there an hour and a half.

    My experience at Willie G's in Galveston was great. The drinks, the appetizers, the main course, and the dessert were all just right. I was my 69 birthday and I specifically asked to go to Willie G's for I knew everything would be delicious. I've gone to Willie G's in Houston and received the same excellent service. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

    We love Willie G’s and eat here pretty often when in Galveston. But this trip we had a reservation and were right on time. However, despite plenty of empty tables they told us we would have to wait 5 or 10 minutes. This despite the fact they had just seated the party of two in front of us who had no reservation. We waited and within 10 minutes were seated at one of the tables sitting there empty. Everything else was good but a frustrating way to start off the evening.

    First time to try this restaurant. I’m not a picky eater but I wasn’t pleased with my meal. I don’t complain at the restaurant, just couldn’t eat it all. Salmon was bland flavor. Salmon and green beans were only slightly warm. The risotto was room temp or cooler. My husband did enjoy his snapper though snd the waiter was very courteous. The prices were kind of high for the quality of my meal.

    DISAPPOINTED! The food was very lack luster. We ordered a crabcake appetizer (which was small for the price) and then ordered shrimp fettuccine and roasted vegetables. While the fettuccine was a good amount of food, it had no taste and my wife's roasted vegetables was the same lacking any flavor. My wife ordered a Bahama Mama drink which she said was the worst drink ever. We sat outside on the patio which was pleasant, not too noisy and the service was adequate. However, there definitely wasn't value in the meal plus had to pay for parking. Do yourself a favor and go elsewhere.

    We had reservations at 5:45 and were running a few minutes late due to a 2 hour wait at the fiery. We called ahead and they still had our table ready right when we walked in the door 5 minutes late. I had the Ribeye cooked medium and it was perfectly cooked and seasoned along with the mashed potatoes and green beans! We had the Lobster Bites for an appetizer and they are sensational! The waiter was spot on with refills and checking on us. Thanks for a great night out with our family!
