All the art, music, downtown shopping and entertainment at a day of AlleyFest is sure to make anyone hungry.

Whether you're in the mood for sushi or a samitch, downtown Longview is the place to satisfy a craving.

When you're inside AlleyFest, here are a few great spots to keep an eye out for:


Owner Gerald Rodriguez established the upscale, classy martini bar years ago in Longview to provide East Texans with an alternative to the typical smoky bar scene.

Gerald's is smoke-free indoors like all Longview restaurants, but features an outdoor patio with plenty of seating.

Though martinis are a bar specialty, patrons can also purchase an assortment of alcoholic beverages from beer to mixed drinks. For those who are hungry, Gerald's features a bistro menu with plenty of entrees to satisfy any appetite.

Gerald is located at 106 E. Tyler St.


Matsu owner Alex Han leased space downtown in 2008 to provide a new Japanese restaurant - Osaka - with a complete sushi bar for East Texans.

Osaka features an extensive selection of fresh sushi as well as popular Japanese tempura, a hibachi-style grill and other Asian dishes. The restaurant also has a full-service bar featuring premium sake and wines.

The interior of the restaurant features a rustic look with lots of exposed old brick and ceilings nearly 20 feet high.

Osaka Japanese Restaurant is located at 115 E. Tyler St., Suite 101.

<strong>Willy G's</strong>

Since making its debut in 2010, Willy G's has quickly become a downtown hot spot.

The sports pub features the longest bartop in town at 60 feet and offers a fresh, unique food menu, including a variety of hamburgers, sandwiches and appetizers such as the fan favorite fish tacos.

Willy G's maintains a full-service bar that includes an array of popular world beers, many on tap.

Willy G's is located at 115 E. Tyler St.
