Stopped into JW for the first time recently. Had an awesome lunch with awesome service. The crab Rangoons were especially noteworthy, as was my Bloody Mary. I am already making plans to return.... I like it that much.

Great food and drinks! Jamie did a wondeful job. Keep our drinks full and food came out quickly. It was nice to see she knew most of the people who were there other than us but still gave us friendly and frequent attention.

We always have a a nice time at J W's. We usually go there once a week! Food is homey, soups are always delicious, and specials are well thought out. Penny is a doll and look for Deb serving customers on Tuesday and Saturdays in the bar! Love this place!

This is not fine dining but the food is really good and everything is reasonably priced, which is somewhat unusual in a resort town. They are always busy, so it's not just my opinion. When we feel like going our for a casual meal this is our go-to choice, although there are plenty of other restaurants of this type in... More

Hosted lunch last Thursday with 5 friends. Sat in the corner in the bar area, under the TV. The barmaid/waitress was nice enough, that is until the bar got crowded with "regulars". The food was good when it came, but our non-alcoholic drinks frequently ran dry due to the overloaded nature of the SINGLE barmaid/server. I'd give JW's an average... More

Earlier review I rated JWs very high, but complained that sometimes it was too cold. The last three times we were there temperature was just right. Now, everything's perfect. It is our favorite local place to dine.cup
