Willi's Wine Bar Mussel Steamers

If you haven’t been up to Healdsburg lately, you probably haven’t seen the major expansion of popular seafood eatery Willi’s Seafood. Along with an expanded seafood bar and open prep area, they’ve added steamer pots to the menu — mussels, oysters, clams or crab legs swimming in PBR, green garlic butter and Old Bay. Make sure to get a side of sourdough to mop up all that tasty seafood broth. More best bets: Flash fried calamari with sweet chili sauce and Tuna Tartare with Jalapenos, cashews, ginger and coconut milk served on taro chips.

403 Healdsburg Ave., Healdsburg, 433-9191. (Menu)

    LOVE the new “bigger” Willi’s. Always my favorite, now easier to get a spot at one of the two bars. Best calimari I’ve ever had, fresh, never greasy. Lobster Roll is delish especially with the fries & Laura Chenel goat cheese dip…yum! Willi’s Seafood is alway my first recommendation to our Tasting Room customers looking for a fun place with good food!

    How are the lobster rolls? Anybody from Maine taste them yet? How much are they?

      Lob rolls are good but not great, IMHO. They are also not at all what I’d call “classic”, but the ingredients’ quality is high. Can’t remember if they still offer it, but the fried oyster po boy roll was very strong.

    The new space rocks, and completely transforms the whole restaurant. In addition to the long-absent mound of crushed ice, which really ought to be a licensing requirement for raw bars, the new bar has the Giants on over in the corner. You’ll find me and my eldest daughter there quite regularly, in fact!

    Oh – and another really safe bet is the mahi mahi fish taco. Not really a classic fish taco, but darn good vittles regardless.

      Great post! I thought they were called “nieces” not eldest daughter. Good on you either way!

      First off, Zack has a dirty mind. Proximal is a great dad. Second — the TV had Giada and the Food Network on when i was there. Funny.
