I always enjoy their frozen drinks, but not only were we the only people in Wet Willie's, but I think we were the only ones in Channelside. The atmosphere is really lacking, and it made it kind of boring. The bartender also seemed to be...More

Stopped in after dinner to get a drink. They have many flavors and let you sample before buying. The drink was refreshing and had a nice kick.

There's not much you can say, as at the end of the day, this venue sells frozen drinks. However it does have a large choice, mostly alcoholic, they do allow you to try them before hand (I tried 4!!!!), the staff were friendly and suggested...More

It's a great bar. There isn't a big social scene there but it's a great place to go with friends. The drinks are very strong but taste delicious and are very reasonably priced.

A tasty, refreshing, frozen, fairly strong, alcoholic beverage (lots of flavor choices) at a good price. Service was slow but we went at a slow time so I didn't mind waiting too much for the one server to assist me.
