“Comfortable atmosphere and good food”

Willie's Grill & Icehouse
Ranked #32 of 306 Restaurants in New Braunfels
Certificate of Excellence
Cuisines: American, Seafood
Restaurant details
Reviewed 12 August 2018

Willie's has a nice, comfortable atmosphere, with cool country decor, interesting designs in the wall plaster, and garage doors for the windows, which I assume would be opened in good weather. The burgers, fries, and fried pickles all had very good flavor. The staff was warm, friendly, helpful, and patient staff.

FYI -- here you order as you enter the restaurant, then get taken to your seat; you'll pay the waitstaff at your table afterward.

Spent the day in San Antonio with the grandgirls, needed someplace to grab dinner. This place was perfect. Open, family atmosphere offering burgers, chicken, shrimp, catfish, appetizers, and a good selection of beers and frozen adult drinks. Very good dinner, the burger and fries really hit the spot. The wife had the shrimp and catfish, it was excellent. The 4 year old even liked the catfish, and she is a picky eater! Not sure when we will be in the area again, but will definitely go back!

The food was sub-par. I ordered the Willie burger and fries, my wife ordered the baked potato with brisket. The fries were cold and my wife's brisket had huge pieces of fat. I know my brisket and understand about the fat content, but at least serve more of the lean side of the brisket. Never will I go there again or suggest it to anyone.

Casual restaurant - were very busy the night we visited but had no problem getting seated quickly. Huge portions. Decent food.

First time there and was amazed at the selection of food. Service was exceptional. The whole place is like a museum from the swamps of America. The crawfish is amazing.
