Willy's has been around for years, but we had not tried it until last week when we stopped for an early dinner. My husband had the flat iron steak and said it was the best he'd ever had. I had the meat loaf dinner, which was very good. Dinners come with 2 sides and delicious hot rolls. There were easily... More

I haven't been here in many years. I discovered it while my son was studying at the Naval Academy. It's a must go for me whenever I fly through BWI. This where the locals go to eat. Not fancy, across from the railroad tracks, but, always excellent food and super friendly service. I must admit, I can't comment much on... More

Came into BWI about 8am and needed coffee & a nice breakfast. Willy's exceeded our expectations for both. Very small establishment, seats under 50. They claim farm to table, fresh made meals. I had the daily special Soft Crab BLTE (extra runny egg on the waitress's recommendation), an omelet for my companion. Though slightly slow getting food to us, it... More

Food was excellent... they support the local farmers and get items locally. Doesn't look like much from the street but menu had a lot of selection. Cozy environment and friendly staff.

This is one of those local places where the staff all know the regulars. There is nothing fancy about this restaurant. It is a small place. This is the type of places I like to find. One of the specials was the shrimp salad sandwich, I had mine on toast. It was wonderful! The shrimp was cooked perfectly and there... More

Willy's Kitchen is really small but crowded, because the food is excellent! People are caring. I enjoyed the Pumpkin Granola Pancakes with real whipped cream, and it delivered as promised. Coffee is perfect and fresh. Give yourself time at this place, because everything is handmade -- and worth it.

Food was decent overall, however it took over 40 minutes and several non-refill after offered coffees to get the cold eggs / french toast. The french toast was delicious though and they were friendly. Arrival time 10:15, name on list 15-20min advised wait. Seated 10:53 (to a unwiped and uncleared table less than 3ft from other couple with other people's... More

By far, this is our favorite place to eat. It's a small diner, but absolutely top notch food. We love the gravy fries and all the food is local and truly farm fresh. I always get the creamy cucumbers when they have them - they're better than I can make them. Coffee is the best - and trust me, not... More

Don't be put off by the complete lack of curb appeal. The inside is very welcoming, and the staff are friendly. I had a fried shrimp special which was delicious. My husband had the ribeye sandwhich, also great. Service was quick and helpful. If I lived nearby I would become a regular. For travelers, it's just off the highway and... More

It is a local place. Yes the furniture is a bit dated, but homeyness makes up for it. I was greeted as soon as I walked in. I got a special, Sloppy Joe. It was good. This is not a place I expect greatness, i want and expect home cooking. I got it. I will be back. In, ordered, ate... More
