Visited this small, quaint restaurant for my mother's birthday and were very happy with our experience. Our waitress was excellent...we had 7 in our party and she did everything possible to make us happy. We were not drinking alcohol and many times when we tell a waitress this, we get poor service from attendants, but she was more than happy... More

This was a convenient place to meet friends who work downtown. The food was great, prices were great and location was fine.

My wife and I ate here upon a recommendation of the Harbor House Inn staff. The innkeeper on duty reported that the BLT was huge, with lots of bacon--well, she was not exaggerating!! The service was outstanding and so was the food!!

J Dub's (as we locals refer to it) is a quant little out of the way place where the food is ALWAYS great! While it doesn't have lots of windows with views of the water, if you want a tasty lunch or dinner, you know you can get it here! Service is always great, to!

We were told how good the perch is and they were spot on with that! We live in SW Michigan, so have had plenty of tasty perch, but this was by far the best we have ever had! We got the perch basket with fries and cole slaw. I normally never eat cole slaw, but this was worth it...yummy as... More

Got this recommendation from the hotel so we went to check it out. The staff was very pleasant. We had small plate steak chimchurizzi(sp?). My honey got French onion soup when he made it a meal and it came as real French onion..ie baked on cheese. The steak was well done and savory. We also found some good wine selections.... More

J.W.'s is pretty consistent as far as the food goes. It just simply has no atmosphere at all. It has no ambiance, and no good seating.

We called recently about 5 ish to make a reservation and were told they didn't take them. When we got there a short time later, we were told there was a 1.5 to 1.75 hour wait. We could understand that as there were four empty tables. When we questioned that, they rudely repeated the wait time. Are they holding tables... More

We've vacationed in Grand Haven every summer for DECADES!! This past week instead of walking toward the wharf and all the main street restaurants for lunch, we walked the other way for a change. What a surprise!! I'm no foodie, but we went there with 5 adults and 3 children, and everyone loved their meal. Wait staff was very friendly... More
