The locals love it and the tourists can’t wait to try it.
The hugely successful  restaurant located on Corey Avenue in beautiful St. Pete Beach is famous for its mouth-watering, oversized burgers and its crowd pleasing weekly specials.
Shadowed by lush, tropical foliage, Willy’s offers an indoor-outdoor bar with a fun and casual beach shack vibe; the kind of establishment where cut offs and fishing t-shirts are expected.  With its Key West dive bar feel and Jimmy Buffet tunes emanating from the juke box, Willy’s is the ultimate spot to have a “cheeseburger in paradise,”

The Big Gooey

 

along with a side of tater tots, of course.
Owner Mike Anderson and his full-of-character staff are often heard telling quirky stories and making jokes with the Willy’s patrons.  But tall tales and laughter aren’t the only things the bartenders and waitresses are dishing up here.  Willy’s serves comfort food at its finest; simple with no frills, yet never lacking in quality.  The menu items may sound a bit kooky upon first glance, but are made with only the freshest and tastiest of ingredients.
To further entice, Willy’s prices are hard to beat, especially along the beaches.

So, whether you are looking for a hearty, “tastes-like-momma-used-to-make” meal with all the fixins’, a gooey cheeseburger to share with a friend (yes, they’re THAT big!) or just want to de-stress with a cold brew at the bar, Willy’s Burger and Booze does not disappoint–ever.
