    The outdoor dining area is nice, but the food was subpar. The food was bland and overcooked, and the service could have been better.

    You can't go wrong!!! "The Melissa Snapper" OMG that was the best dish I've ever had, blackened fish, with crab, shrimp and scallops with broccoli and tomatoes on the side. Fantastic!!! Can not go wrong if you like seafood. The crab and lobster roll appetizers were also very good! 16oz ribe was cooked to perfection. Very lively venue and I highly recommend reservations and give your self time for parking cause the lot is full. They pretty much cater to a valet parking crowd at which you use an app to signal when you are ready for your vehicle to be brought to you.

    Been a very long time since last visit so was excited to go again. Our reservations were at 7 and we were seated right on time. Took awhile to be waited on and get drinks. We ordered a dozen oysters and the bits & pieces plate (fried snapper, jalapeños and onions) which turned out to be the best of the entire meal. we decided on gumbo and salad for dinner and were sadly disappointed. Gumbo was very bland. Waiter kept telling us over and over we should have gotten the tomahawk steak. I didn’t come to a seafood restaurant for steak, much less a 42 oz $229 one. However, the biggest disappointment was the people in bathrooms. It is 2022 and no one needs to have another person put soap in your hand, turn water on and hand you a towel. As well, I don’t need fake eyelashes, makeup or a mint. Tillman, your better than this. Overall, the oysters were the best but not enough to go back for.

    Service was pleasant. Our waitress was attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. My only complaint would really be the chargrilled oysters. They were not great at all. Even though I ordered them to be prepared chargrilled, they still tasted raw.

    This was our first time dining at Willie G’s. We chose here to celebrate our 17th anniversary with two of our closest friends. We checked in and my girlfriend and I went to the ladies room while our husbands were being seated. Now I looked this place up online and thru yelp. My understanding was that only certain attire was permitted and that there was a more upscale environment, white linen table cloths, etc. Yet we were seated on the side that “permitted” tennis shoes and had no table cloths on the table, although we were dressed in accordance to the guidelines stated online. As well as there were open seating on the side that houses the white table cloth covered tables. In addition we were seated by two very large loud parties. And although the waited was very attentive, it was never asked were we celebrating anything nor did the hostess mention it although I stated it in the reservation. So yes the food was amazing but I wish they would take more care in considering how or where they seat people because if last night was any indication, it really seamed like the seating has less to do with dress code and more to do with the color of the customer.

    Fabulous fresh delicious fish entrees. Good cocktails. Inventive good sides. Our server was attentive, nice and thorough. It was a little loud. Would have preferred more quiet ambiance, it was hard to hear and carry on a conversation. Would highly recommend for fresh seafood and a quality meal. Did not disappoint!

    The waitress kept taking our menus away even though we asked to keep them because we wanted to order more food as items came. She failed to bring what we ordered and for what we spent it was a very disappointing experience. Couldn't even have silverware available for dessert. It was absolutely pathetic.

    Everything from ambiance, service and food was outstanding. Despite being busy our waiter was amazing! Food was flavorful and well presented. I ordered a steak and was not expecting it to be one the best I had being a sea food establishment but was impressed that it was done to perfection. Cannot wait to come back. Beautiful location and could walk to the Patisserie for ice cream for the kids.
