Very cozy & wonderful service. GREAT burgers, and the white chili is the best in town. One thing I really notice is how clean the place is kept, many of the small home town places aren't kept up with like JW's. Theres a reason this is where the "Locals" go.

We received great service. The wait was 10 minutes on a Monday night at 7 pm. Not bad. Very friendly place. Clean. Not to noisy. Great food. Really yummy food.

Intimate, cozy place attached via short hallway to a bar, the food was very nice if a little short on healthy options. The waitstaff was *very* attentive and returned to check our table often. The White Sangria mixed drink was especially tasty. They also serve a delicious white chili.

It is a shame our experience went so poorly during our visit at JW after reading so many positive reviews; I'll be straightforward and honest. We had 3 major problems: the waitress, the food quality and order correctness. Our waitress did not know what to suggest, she rolled her eyes at my wife, acted like she did not want to... More

Visited with family during a busy weekend! Chose randomly from a list of GH restaurants and we were very pleased! Large menu and food prices. Very attentive and quick staff! Wish it were closer to the downtown area, but that's not a detractor from this gem. Will visit again when we are back in town!

Went here after the Coast Guard Festival Parade, won't be the last time. This place was as cool as it comes. Try the White Chili.

This is my parents favorite restaurant in Grand Haven. The perch is a big hit. The service is always friendly and great! Food is consistently good all year round.

Food and service was amazing! Came with my son and there was a great selection for both of us! Servers were extremely attentive and friendly. Try the Rum Runner. It was delicious!!
