Good food at reasonable prices.Great bar for such a small restaurant. Can get a little noisy at times due to small sized rooms.

Very good dinner service in a vintage home remodeled into a quaint restaurant. The food is well priced and although not gourmet, fresh and tasty. The bar is excellent!

This place is small, but very cool. It's in an old house, but the owners have maximized the space. The menu isn't extensive, but the food is quite good. Service was spotty.

Went here on family weekend and had one of the best meals ever from the hot crab dip to the homemade desserts and everything in between. They welcomed us to the restaurant as if we were family. We will be back the next time we visit our daughter at mizzou

Had a wonderful meal at WJ's. Crab dip was excellent as appetizer. Salad very fresh and loved their homemade horseradish dill dressing. Hubby & I split the tenderloin and it was really tasty. Cooked perfectly and baked potato was good too. Fun friendly atmosphere with great service.

Since August, 2005 we have attended the annual Missouri River Festival of the Arts in Boonville, MO. It is excellent and should not be missed. Then in 2011, on a friend’s recommendation, we ate at WJ's Restaurant for the first time…WOW!! We’ve eaten there all three Festival night for the last four years. And, if we are returning to Columbia... More

I have never had any good luck at WJ's. I find it overpriced, very poor but friendly service, and I always get seated by the kitchen. It is in an old house, with most small dining rooms. There is a bar to greet you as you enter.

Wonderful food & drinks. The servers are very friendly. I highly recommend the ribeye steak & if you enjoy phenomenal Bloody Mary's, WJ's is the place to go!
