Honestly, Wish Willies was not the best place I have tried. The vibe is super cool and laid back which is nice to experience but the service was aloof, unorganized and honestly just confusing. When you get there you sort of seat yourself, and then...More

Best chicken I ever had. Laid back vibe, grab your own beer from the cooler or get the home made rum cocktail. Everything on the menu is 20B$, I suggest u go for the chicken.

Why does this place only have 4 stars? Best restaurant I've been to on the island. The chicken jerk is so gooood (and spicy). I also loved the outdoor dining area.

Pretty good for what it was but was not sure what all the hype was about. It was good seafood but not spectacular.

Here's the thing about Willy's, this guy is super chill and a one man operation, so just be patient. Seat yourself, grab your own beers from the cooler and go to the kitchen to order when you're ready and to pay your bill. He may...More

We met Maurice one day walking around the island looking at the restaurants. He was headed to the dock for that day's seafood, and told us what he expected to find (lobster, snapper, conch, shrimp, maybe grouper) and what he would do with it. (Grill,...More
