Sat at the bar at WJ's with my wife and enjoyed a great meal, great conversation and great cocktails. Brad, the owner is a superb host. He told us all about the Pedller's Jamboree, biking on the Katy Trail. life in Boonville. And then ran into the kitchen and cooked up some great grub-- a burger with banana peppers that... More

Food was mediocre and way overpriced. For food that expensive you would expect the staff to wear something classier than blue jeans.

Had heard this was a good place to eat. So we tried it for the first time a couple weeks ago. The salmon was delicious. The burger was great. For a little house made into a restaurant, they were getting busier as the evening progressed. There are a couple of rooms with a few tables in each and a small... More

The staff was friendly. As soon as we walked in, the bartender started talking to us like we were old friends. No wait for a table. Food was excellent. Had a large selection of craft beers and at a reasonable price. Restaurant was clean and walking distance from our hotel (Hotel Frederick).

This bar and restaurant has mostly good old American fare - pizzas, burgers, etc. But I ordered the yellowfin tuna and asked for it just seared, as rare as possible. It was excellent! The owner has taken care to introduce just one or two "new" foods to Boonville. He's friendly and thoughtful and his restaurant is worth a visit.

This place is fantastic. Food is good, drink selection is great...and the staff is AMAZING! They are always friendly and helpful. The owner, Brad, is a great guy. The locals all love him and I understand why. He remembered me a year after I came in the first time! For the last two years, we have had an event in... More

Hot crab dip appetizer was ok, nothing spectacular. Salad was also just "ok." I was starving so I ate every bit of it. It was fresh and attractively prepared. The atmosphere was nice, relaxed, and homey. Our server Madison was very sweet and attentive. It was a beautiful evening so we ate outside.

It had been a while since visiting WJ's and quickly we remembered why. It was over 30 minutes from seating and taking drink orders to actually ordering our food. Then another 45 minutes before our food arrived. (A couple in our group said that they walked out the last time they came to WJ's becuase the food service was too... More

The food was absolutely fabulous, the atmosphere was eclectic and the service was excellent even though the waitress was new. The wait was a bit long, but they were busy and we had plenty to talk about anyways. The potatoes were to DIE FOR!

Neat little restaurant inside an old house. The owner is always there and goes out of his way to welcome you. The food is pretty good. We eat out a lot and sometimes get bored of the restaurants in Columbia so occasionally drive the 25 miles to Boonville to eat here. If it's worth that long of a drive you... More
