J & W ' s was less than a block from our B & B, and we were so glad we chose to dine there instead of at one of the "fancier" places downtown. We sat at the bar and found that the food, the service, and the "locals" we chatted with all contributed to a memorable and enjoyable experience.... More

We arrived at 7pm on a Monday night - after a minimal wait we had a table and had a great meal. A few other reviews mentioned an anti-children attitude. We had an extremely positive experience with our 9&7 year old daughters. Staff were uniformly friendly and efficient, food was very good, esp perch and white chilli. Definitely recommended.

It's not near the water and it doesn't look trendy and cool from the outside, but take the time to find this place and enjoy a great meal served by great people. We waited 5 minutes for a table and they apologized like we had been waiting an hour. Please get the white chicken chili, so good! We will be... More

Award winning white chicken chili is unrivaled at J.W.'s!! I got the black and blue flat iron steak and it was incredible...tender, juicy, and flavorful! My husband had the perch and said it was some of the best fish he'd had since we were in St. Thomas! Desserts were also fantastic! Service was good. Medium range in price. Worth every... More

J.W.'s is on the corner of Washington and 7th. Food is good, but I think it depends on what time of the day you go. Judge this for yourself, if there is a line you should have have been there earlier. That tells you how good the food is. Service is usually fine too.

Having a blast here in grand haven doing all the touristy things. Our family decided to venture out of downtown and we were all glad we did. A good local joint, family friendly. Good friendly service. I was most impressed by the black and bleu flat iron steak. Perfect sear, generously seasoned with cajun and gorgonzola. Done a perfect medium... More

J.W.'s is a local favorite. (I found this out from my friend who lives in the area.). The perch is breaded just right, and the red skin mash potatoes were yummy. For a Saturday night, we were seated promptly and service was great. I'll be back for the white chili when the weather outside gets a bit colder.

If you are looking for a great place to have a perch dinner, J.W.'s is it. 3 of us has the fish and it was delicious!!! A couple of us had the surf and turf, and thought the steaks were a little tough/chewy though. The appetizers we had were outstanding. Crab rangoons were excellent.(large triangles deep-fried perfectly). The beer cheese... More
