    Re Willie Gs Andres was great! He’s a keeper! Front desk staff needs to smile and listen to customer. Something has changed with employee training for Galveston restaurants. Was at Fisherman’s wharf earlier this week. Wait staff called me hon and babe.? Many staff members do not appear happy. Same thing at Fish Tales months back. $$$$ spent on Landrys. We are local to this area now and the Landrys experiences have not met the expected standards.

    We frequent Willies G’s often and for me personally, I love the first item on the menu - ahi tuna rolls. It’s what I order every time I visit. The last time we ate there they were out of the rolls. We came back a few weeks later just for the rolls and they were out again! I settled on a salad and a side of steamed veggies. I was shocked the size portion of the vegetables especially since it was $6! My husband had the snapper special and said it was fishy and for the value he wouldn’t order it again. And if you order a mixed drink like we did (vodka & club soda) ask for the vodka separately so you can see if they poured a full shot. Unfortunately we both agreed that our drinks tasted like flat soda. We don’t plan on going back especially when one of their most popular dishes is consistently not available.

    We lived on Galveston Island for four years, during that time we frequented Willie G's and became Landry members because of it. Working as an Assistant Manager of a retail shop on the strand I often referred tourist to the restaurant. I made a reservation approximately three weeks ago for a party of 6, indoor table at 6:30 on Saturday night. When we arrived and checked in we were told it would be about five minutes before our table was ready. 20 minutes later we went to check on the table and were told they were waiting for another 4 top to come available. A wedding party arrived while we were waiting. After waiting over 30 minutes for a table to be available we were seated at the bar in a curved booth that was too small for six adults. The two 4 tops were given to the wedding party who arrived after us. There was a 6 top round table at the front of the restaurant that became available. I asked the Manager if we could be moved to that table and was told it was reserved for VIP guest. I explained that six adults including three men did not fit comfortably in the curved and booth, in addition there were very loud guest sitting at the bar and we couldn't hear one another speaking. I was told we could move when the next six top came available. The VIP table was reserved for "Special Guest only". The VIP party showed and up and were immediately seated. Finally, over an hour after our table reservation we were seated at 6 top. Because of the delay we missed our next reservation for a local rooftop bar. The food was okay but took a long time, I'm guessing because of the wedding party and VIP table being seated ahead of us. The manager did not offer us any accommodation for our inconvenience. She never apologized and certainly did seem concerned.

    Terrible service and cold food. Our waiter never brought our wine until we asked another waiter. Had to ask another waiter for check. Charged for shrimp never brought to us. Waiter never asked us about our food when we could have complained about it was cold. Never refilled our water glasses. We will never go back.

    Had a reservation at 8:45 arrived 30 mins. early and didn’t get seated until an hour later. Waitress came to our table to take our order and only returned to bring the check at the end of the meal. She then asked us if we needed our parking validated and proceeded to pretend to validate it. I guess she was upset that her tip was low but why would I tip her when every time something was needed we got it from the other male waiter who was wonderfully helpful. The table we sat at on the patio was so bad with huge cockroaches we literally didn’t even stay to finish our dinner. It was our first and last time at Willie G’s, think I’ll stick to McCormick & Schmick's.

    Ever since the pandemic i have found the quality of restaurants have gone down and Willie G's was no exception. We ordered the special appetizer and it was overly salty. The Wedge Salad was delish and should have just ordered that for my main meal. Our entrees came out cold and flavorless. One of our sides was "Parmesan Risotto". It just tasted and looked like rice. I have gone to Willie G's many times over my life but this visit will probably be our last. Unless i want a glass of wine and a good Wedge Salad, Ill go somewhere else.

    My husband and I come to Galveston about once or twice a year. We discovered Willi G’s a few months ago. He saw ridiculous reviews which our visit disproved. Our experience this time was fantastic just like last time. This time we sat outside. The food was scrumptious and Margarita, our server appeared to be somewhat new. Even so, she was charming and did a great job of taking care of us. What a lovely place for some upscale dining.
