Granted it was a Saturday night, but the hostess was not particularly helpful, the bartender was slow, and seating took a real long time. Menu looked good, but the seafood came out overcooked.

Willie G's has a cheery, bright dining room with some nice light fittings and so we chose to sit inside rather than on the patio. A reasonably extensive menu and an interesting wine list. We started with some excellent margueritas (very strong!) and calamari and...More

Took in the sights while having happy hour on the patio. Nice environment, great staff. Good cocktail menu and mostly seafood, but well worth the visit.

Waited at the bar which seems to have limited space. But bar staff were good and attentive, it seemed to have a good selection of beers. Oyster starters were dry but good flavour. Steak and seafood were well cooked and waitress staff were sociable and...More

Food was very good, but in retrospect I wish I had ordered something more "pure" (i.e. not sauced / stuffed) so that I could better judge the actual food. The seafood fondue was good, but it was a thick sauce that didn't let the flavors...More

We were in town for the Tall Ships festival and ate at Willie's twice. First night we had calimari and shrimp guilliani - yum. Second night was cold and blustery, so we had soups - seafood gumbo and clam chowder - also yum.
