You have a good variety of food to choose from. My favorites are the perch, BLT and white chili. I have not had a better white chili anywhere!

Great happy hour in the bar includes food and drinks. The food is always good, and fresh. Greek salad with chicken, French onion or chicken chili soup, a variety of sandwiches and fish. Always good.

This is our favorite spot in near downtown Grand Haven. It's obviously a favorite of other local diners as we see the same folks there often. The food is great, especially the salads, and priced very reasonably.

We are regulars here and love their white chicken chili, fried cauliflower and quesadillas but they always have specials that are always good too. I don't think we have ever been disappointed in anything we have had here.

This is the best place to have lunch in Grand Haven. Locals all love JW's cozy little bar for a happy hour drink & some appetizers, but the dining room is very family friendly for anyone. The burgers and sandwiches can't be beat, and even though it's a cozy "local joint" it's VERY clean. Staff is warm & welcoming to... More

We were tired of fast food and burgers and found this restaurant to be charming and delightful. We had a very good waitress to attend to our every need including making homemade cocktail sauce for us. Our son had recommended the white chili, but we opted for perch and whitefish which were cooked perfectly and tasted delicious. We will definitely... More

We live in the city and there are some eateries that are along the waterfront and with more flare but as locals we really enjoy the consistency of just good food at fair prices. Lots of good salads and J Ws is known for its white chili! It is usually our first choice in the Grand Haven area.
