Hadn't been in a couple years. Had a nice booth, little noisy by the bar area. Waitress was wonderful. Bread a little hard and not sliced. The steak house wedge salad a bit disappointing, lacked bacon, very tiny crumbs and slim on the blue cheese chunks. Had it in the past and it was much better then. My husbands beef steak tomatoe and mozzarella was very good and we all loved our entre's and sides of garlic mashed potatoes and brussel sprouts and onion strings . all delicious! Filet mignon cooked perfectly and tender, rack of lamb delicious but lacked pecan encrusted topping, not as before,missed that although it was still very delicious. Asked for mint jelly, but they ran out. Shared the amazing choc/mouse huge cake, very moist and fudgy! Overall still one of my favorite places to dine. Valet parking, nice quaint , cozy atmosphere. Good quality food and great service.

Willy's Steakhouse was unbelievable. Just the beer on tap alone with amazing. It tasted different than other restaurants, for some reason. Once we got our bread, we were already blown away! We ordered the pecan crusted rack of lamb and the Delmonico. The lamb was the best lamb we've ever had, as was the steak. The food at Willy's was by far the best food we've ever eaten from any restaurant. We've died and it almost every restaurant in Disney, and Willie's even tops every place there! It's definitely pricey, but it's worth it if you want a meal you will never forget.

The meal was exquisite! The service was impeccable. The steaks and sides were prepared perfectly. The salad was crisp and very tasty. The Norton Malbec went well with the steaks.
It is a shame this place doesn't open until 4 PM - it would be great for business lunches.
Cannot recommend this restaurant and dining experience too highly!

Although only six miles from our home, we "found" Willy's for our 40th wedding anniversary and returned to celebrate my five-year post-cancer surgery date. We prefer to eat at the earlier seating where we find it quiet. The food is excellent with superb presentation. The gf menu has many selections. The staff is welcoming and professional. We particularly enjoy the rustic atmosphere and the framed art. We definitely recommend Willy's and will share our experience with our children when they visit.

Eclectic sushi menu, steaks are a bit high priced but were worth the quality- thou don't expect to find anything super small as most are about 10oz or more. Steaks are a la carte so you're paying a decent penny for appetizers that aren't overly large in size ($6.99 for sweet potato fries that I alone could have eaten two of if it was my only side). Great wine list also.
Sushi was fantastic- and I had heard rave reviews about Chef Kenzo from multiple people. Ordering four rolls and the 20oz NY strip to split before the four of us made for the real surf & turf.
I will definitely go back at some point even though I live about an hour and a half away!

I ordered a surf and turf special featuring a filet mignon and scallops . Both were cooked perfectly. My wife had baked stuffed shrimp, which came with 5 large shrimp and was also excellent. For dessert we split a chocolate sea salt Carmel cake which was a perfect complement to the meal. Our waitress gave us just the right amount of space for a relaxing Saturday night dinner. Great place go here often and never disappointed.

Booked a table for a Birthday dinner of 2. There was a nice welcome and Happy Birthday card at our table when we arrived and Marlene our server took good care of us. Food and wine was excellent as always. Willy's is a classic steakhouse (that also has a sushi bar) with all booth seating, lots of ambience and charm that you would expect.

I have been to Willys many times and would describe them as very consistent. I can say that I’ve had many very good meals here. This particular night I took a client who was in from out of town. We started with the shrimp cocktail and each had one of their lobster bomb specials. Both were very good.

For dinner he ordered the filet which came out perfect. I ordered a 14 ounce prime sirloin which came out over cooked. The waitress noticed this and took it back immediately (which Was appreciated). The manger brought back the steak and asked me to cut into it. The new steak was basically raw. She took that back and put it on for a little longer. When she brought back it was cooked as I wanted.

All of this was not the issue. Cooking steak can be an art and I would say they normally are spot on. The issue I had was that there was nothing else done to make the evening better. My client was almost done eating and by the time I started eating the sides we ordered were cold. We ordered espressos, paid the full bill, and left.

When I got home I called and spoke with the manager that Cale to our table. I explained that I was disappointed at how the situation was handled. I let her know that it wasn’t that the steak was over then under cooked but that she didn’t even offer to bring new warm sides, offer a soup, salad, or anything as I sat there while my client ate dinner.

Her answer to this was yea we normally do but missed it tonight. Then a sorry and that was all. Nothing like come back and we will make it right. Our bad... whatever.

As I’ve said before they normally get it right however the difference between good restaurants and great restaurants can be seen when things don’t go right and how they handle it. I would say Willys is a good restaurant which is suffering from their success. Hopefully they will understand that when things don’t go right and someone goes out of their way to call it’s as if they were given a second change to fix the issue.

Booked a reservation for a very special occasion (husband's birthday and celebrating the birth of our first grandchild). I requested a surprise cupcake, which they said they don't have, but I could arrange something, based on chef's daily desert menu. We arrived early, met by indifferent hostess, indicating she would notify us when the table was ready. We had a drink at a very crowded bar. 50 minutes later, we inquired on our table, after several other parties were seated. Finally we were seated by hostess. Crab cakes were good, stay away from salads. Steaks were well prepared, truffle fries were very good. At the end of the meal, the waitress brought a slice of orange cake to the table (which we didn't order or choose). We were surprised when we were charged $11 for the complimentary cake. Not cool for $220+ bill (excl. tip) for two. When I called the restaurant the next day to voice my displeasure to the manager before writing this review (giving them an opportunity to respond), I was put on hold for 6 minutes. I hung up, called back, and explained the situation to the hostess and the hostess hung up as I left my cell number. We will never return.

Upscale dining with a diner feel to it. First time I went was with 7 people for a birthday. Everything was really good. I went with my wife on a Thursday night 3 months later and it was just average. The bill cane to $200 with tip for the 2 of us. I ordered a margarita and it was served in a water glass. I ordered and appetizer and the waitress took off before seeing what my wife wanted. Coffee served in used diner mugs. For the price of everything I’d expect a bit more class. The bar was noisy, not a place for a peaceful meal.

I had the Kona rubbed NY sirloin with gargonzola, it was delicious. Ordered it well done and it was perfectly cooked. Also had the oysters for an appetizer, no sandy/gritty bits, pure and clean.
