JW gets three stars based on service. My wife had a photo shoot in Grand haven and we wanted to have dinner out of the busy area. In this respect JW's is perfect. It was not busy, it was quiet and the atmosphere is just what we wanted. Our server Lauren was very nice and accommodating, but multiple things were... More

Not a great dining experience, some things on the menu good, some things not. Stick with the basics burgers, sandwiches, perch is a good choice. Don't expect high end quality.

We went here for lunch one day, the service was a little slow but that was expected as the place was packed. We skipped the wait by going and sitting in the bar area (they have tables over there, too). We both got salads. Good food selections and fun, accommodating waitresses, though..when a salad says mixed greens I expect mixed... More

Wish I had reviewed J.W.'s sooner so I could comment on the dishes we were served, but it was almost a year ago, sorry. We very much enjoyed our time, meals, and service here, though, and would definitely return. They handled a group of 8 very nicely.

Just out of the main drag of town you will find this tavern. The pretzel sticks where great as was the burger. it is nice to find one that is not a 1/2lb as that is just to much. They sell a 1/3lb will all kinds of toppings. We sat at the bar and got some good information about where... More

Based on several local recommendations, decided to give JW's a try and was not disappointed. Get the perch they all said, it'll be great they all said, they were right. Went on a Weds. Evening and the perch was on special. Bonus! Everything else was great as well ( try the white chili). May go back later in the week... More

One of our local favorites. Friendly staff, excellent food. Only thing we don't like is sometimes it is too cold; wear long pants and long sleeved shirts !

Always fun to stop on a Friday night after a movie. Excellent vodka martini and nachos! Ask for the crab soup!

JW's is a staple for locals who enjoy great food, solid hospitality, and decent prices. While it might look more like a tavern from the outside, it's split in two on the inside - tavern on the left, nicer dining on the right. Their lunch fare is more on the sandwich. soup or salad side (not so fancy, but very... More
