One of my favorite restaurants in The Woodlands, Texas is Willie’s Grill & Icehouse. It’s a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon, though my family knows I’m not opposed to visiting on any night of the week! I couldn’t wait for summer, aka patio weather, because Willie’s has the best atmosphere, food and service in town.
5 REASONS TO EAT AT WILLIE’S GRILL & ICEHOUSE
With 17 locations throughout Houston, San Antonio, and College Station, Willie’s Grill & Icehouse is the place to visit this summer.
The Patio At Willie’s
It’s summer and with that comes beautiful weather. Our favorite thing to do is sit outside for dinner, and Willie’s offers a great patio that serves as the perfect compliment to their atmosphere.
On the patio, you’ll find plenty of tables (with umbrellas to help guard off the sun) as well as a covered patio. * During the hotter months, there are tons of fans and misters to help you keep cool.
With four children who often finish their meal before my husband and I do, they always look forward to playing in the sandbox.
I love the fact that my husband and I can continue our meal (or drinks) while my children play together. They aren’t on screens, they aren’t arguing, but they are outside, being kids and having fun. Willie’s patio is also a great spot for parents to hang out with friends while their kids play in the sandbox (within eye shot, of course.)
From salads to burgers to crawfish, fried pickles and drinks, you’re sure to find something for everyone.
My husband loves the half pound Cheddar Pepper Burger, and I always go for the Texas Fried Chicken Club Sandwich. My children like the option of having corn dogs or chicken tenders from the kids’ menu, but they are quick to order dessert from the regular menu! (I don’t blame them.)
The Willie Wonka is incredible. Close your eyes and imagine a triple chocolate brownie, topped with ice cream, whipped cream, chocolate sauce, and chopped pecans… yeah. Make sure you treat yourself and leave room for dessert or a Lawnchair Lemonade (or a frozen lemonade for the kids!)
Being honest, sometimes I base my restaurant selection on the drinks listed on the menu. Willie’s offers a variety of Texas craft beer, margaritas, beeritas and so much more. I love the frozen jack & coke. My husband loves the fact that you can build a beer bucket from the beer trough, AND the fact that your 6th beer is free!
Service with a smile? Willie’s is where it’s at. I’ve never had a bad experience, which keeps me going back for more. We’ve even had a manager come check in on our table a time or two. I appreciate it when a business takes a few extra minutes to go above and beyond, just to make sure everything’s going smooth and our visit is without a hitch.
If you are in the Houston, San Antonio or College Station areas, make sure you look for a Willie’s Grill & Icehouse near you!
