“Wet Willie’s prides itself on strong drinks and high profit margins for franchisees.”
"I wasn’t the only one enjoying a Wet Willie...The chilly drinks were a hot topic at the exhibitor reception Friday night at the NRG Stadium, where I was told the Miami location is an extremely happening, amusingly rowdy destination - and that they sold daiquiris like they were going out of style."

South beach may be known for its topless beaches and leggy models, but when it comes to the guys at Wet Willie's, they're more interested in your stagger than your catwalk. Call A Cab consists of 153-proof grain alcohol. At the end of the night, you think your hailing a taxi. To everyone else it sounds like, "I'll have another!"

"When his cell phone rings for the 27th time in three hours and he lifts it to his ear, he appears to be be handling a bit-sized candy bar. Then he uses his other mitt to reach for his blended drink - a sinister concoction called Call A Cab..."

Best Head Freeze:  Wet Willie’s
Best Head Freeze: Wet Willie’s
Personal Best Jim DeFede
This place has a drink named “Call a Cab.” And that pretty much sums up what you can expect at Wet Willie’s, ” We aren’t talking about Slurpees but drinks made with “fruit and fruit flavors that have been selected after years of on-going research and taste testing,” as described by Wet Willie’s Web site. “To ensure safety of our guests we cooperate with local authorities and have zero tolerance for unlawful or otherwise dangerous behaviors or activities on or near our premises,” So, if you are one of those wacky, angry type drunks, maybe stay clear from here. If you are a happy, jolly drunk then come on down! Call a cab afterwards.

by Eric Curl

"If your looking for somewhere to stop on your way to dinner or just a great place to start your night on the town, Wet Willie's is it. There's usually a line at the door to get in, but the wait is worth it. The place is fun and safe with high-quality drinks that are reasonably priced. Imagine a 1950's soda shop combined with Mc Donalds, then mix in some classic rock, beveled glass mirror walls and some crazy, vibrant murals. Then you've got the look and feel of Wet Willie's."

Best Place to Take Out-of-Towners-Ocean Drive
Why fight it? If for no other reason than being in close proximity to one of Florida’s most sought after beaches, Ocean Drive attracts out-of-towners like moths to a bug zapper. Our recommendation: take them to the Clevelander for a few beers, then Finnegan’s for a few beers, then Wet Willies for a few brain killing slushies and then dance it off at Mango’s… and have a few beers
