    Sat at the bar -which was a mistake, one bartender could not speak English, another who could just barely understand English had a mask on therefore you could not understand anything,sense he mumbled. The one bartender that could speak English was so busy making drinks for the wait staff he was not for the most part available. From a business standpoint you would believe a higher end restaurant would have better management of the bar staff. A once really enjoyable place to dine now has become mediocre. Disappointing would be an understatement. As a Landry’s President Club Member I find it hard to comprehend how poorly managed this location has become.

    I made a reservation at 4:15PM and showed up at least 10 minutes before my reservation. The hostess told me I had to wait for the rest of my party to arrive so I waited for my family. After they arrived we still had to wait while 3 other parties were seated ahead of me. When I went to ask the hostess she said they were setting up our table even though the restaurant was not full and there was a lot of tables that were set up and ready to be seated. The hostess was very rude and my family and I were not happy with her rudeness. The only thing that made this experience a little pleasant was our server Roger. He was very professional and offered exceptional customer service. I really hope this experience doesn’t have to other customers.

    The bar area was very hot and muggy. We also often got a waft of old, raw seafood every now and again. The table the hostess seated us at did not have table settings and the waiter had to scramble to find some. The food was ok, Eddie V’s and Capital Grille definitely has them beat on flavors but the service from the waiter was phenomenal. The on tap Moscow mule was watery at best so definitely not the best drinks I’ve ever had. All in all, if it weren’t for our amazing waiter, Shawn, I would be giving 3 stars.

    The food was good. The only problem was parking. It was a disaster. We waited more than five minutes to park and then waited in the hot sun for ten (or more) minutes for our car to be retrieved.

    My husband and I had a terrible experience, so bad we got in an argument over why I picked this Terrible restaurant for brunch. We had a reservation, but somehow got sat at the “oyster bar” which was blistering hot as our seats had just a piece of glass separating it from a stove. I went to the hostess to ask to be seated in the dining room, at fist they said no. Then reluctantly told me that it will be a 30 minute wait to get seated. I said fine. When the seat was ready, I walked up there again to find out who will guide us to our new seat. They were all confused at the hostess stand, and then said the waiter would take care of it. I went Back to my hot heat, after 10 minutes of trying to flag down the waiter. He said the oyster bar was his station and has nothing to do with the Dining room. And handed me up to the manager. After I explained what happened, there was not one ounce of smile or niceness on his face, he called over a hostess to finally walk us over. (The same hostess that said it wasn’t his job) he picked up a couple of dishes, and I carried the rest of our food. By the way, initially they made a fuss about us closing out at the bar 1st before they could transfer us over. That didn’t seem like a big deal all of a sudden. After we were settled in the dining room, I had to flag down someone else to find out who our new waiter was who never bothered to introduce herself as our waiter. At this point we had enough, paid for our appetizers as left NO tip! We went home to eat a home cooked meal, and definitely regretted attempting to have a nice Sunday out at Willie Gs. As we walked out we heard several other customers complaining saying “I guess a reservation doesn’t mean anything around here”. We will not be back!

    It was Father’s Day. We had a reservation, but they weren’t prepared for the overwhelming number of walk-ins. What we ordered from the menu was tasty, but it was lukewarm when served. Also, they wouldn’t sell our preferred choice of Scotch, even though it was on the shelf. We were told that particular scotch, McCallen 18, was for show.

    Willie G’s continues to deliver great food and good service! We just visited on Father’s Day and enjoyed every item. We ordered oysters French quarter, flapjacks, fried shrimp/oyster poorboy and a crawfish Benedict. They do a great job of not over cooking the fried items, and the cinnamon butter for their pancakes is excellent. The place is a little bit of a madhouse, most likely due to a buffet they offer, but otherwise a good experience.

    Great Fathers Day buffet. They could have included the soft drinks and juice in the buffet but it was per fill they charged per kid. So that was a bit excessive but overall the food was great. I’ve been here multiple times and enjoyed their regular brunch and regular menu. For the buffet they did have unlimited oysters but they were chewy and not the best. When I ate the oysters on a regular day, they are fantastic. So again I love coming here.

    I booked this restaurant as a treat for my guy friend to have an early Father’s Day dinner. The restaurant was super packed, which is to be expected on a Friday night. The noise level was also comparative to it being Friday night so no complaints there, however, the music was a tad bit loud for my liking. We started off with the Bourbon Street and Rockefeller oysters, it was not disappointing as Willie G‘s is known for its fresh oyster bar so that was a plus because he really enjoys oysters. 10/10. His first entrée was the fried catfish with fries and I got the Bourbon Street pasta. After a couple of bites he did not like the catfish so we sent it back and got him a bowl of gumbo and he said that was just OK. I got the pasta and it was really watered down so I’m not sure if that’s how it’s normally served but I only maybe ate a fourth of it and didn’t really enjoy it. I didn’t want to send a second meal back because I didn’t feel comfortable and our waitress was so nice. Then we got the Apple Blondie and that was amazing and he’s not even a big dessert eater. He said, Oh let me have a bite,” and then he ended up eating all of my dessert so that was really great! Our waitress was super smiley, cheerful, and she was very knowledgeable of the menu. She was honest when we were asking her about certain entrées as she said she had not experienced them and she didn’t want to lie so that was greatly appreciated. All in all, I will stick with what I typically get from Willie G’s which is drinks, oysters, and sushi. 3 stars

    The service was lacking in every way. The wait person was not attentive and was very forgetful! After ordering our second round of drinks, we waited for over 25 minutes to get them. After finishing our dinner we did not see our waiter for another 20-25 minutes. The bar area was very loud, to the point of people offending multiple table. No manager was every seen walking through the bar and checking on guest or being present to calm down those guest that were out of control!

    Been here several times before and I think they were just off their game this time. We were seated for nearly an hour before the food arrived. Good food but that's too long at lunch time, particularly when there weren't many people there (maybe a quarter of the restaurant occupied). We asked about them turning the a/c down but nothing happened. Our booth was under several vents but the entire restaurant was really cold. On the plus side, it was excellent food - some of the best seafood in town.
