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

My husband and I have eaten at WJ's several times and have never been disappointed. The menu is fairly standard American cuisine but every dish is fresh and homemade with a unique twiist that makes it a little bit out of the ordinary. They have a large selection of craft beers and the owner is very knowlegable and helpful with... More

Ate at WJ's on a Saturday and enjoyed the evening. It is a cute house and the food was good. We had the filet with salad and garlic mashed potatoes. Steak was cooked perfect and it had a light mushroom sauce which didn't overpower the steak flavor. Potatoes were awesome. Staff was very friendly and owner was out and about... More

I had seven out-of-town family members stop in for a weekend stay. WJ's was the perfect place for a great meal, drinks, and local atmosphere. Brad and the staff went above and beyond to make our experience memorable. The restaurant itself is quaint. Originally a craftsman-style bungalow, the dining is capacity is limited, which only adds to the charm and... More

We had dinner here Saturday evening. Atmosphere is just ok, with pictures everywhere of the owner, who I guess is a local polician/attorney. Didn't do much for me. Food was good but nothing special. My husband got the beef tenderloin...it was pricey, and not prepared as ordered. Overall, it was an ok experience but I certainly wouldn't rate it as... More

We ate here for a couple years and have now given up since the bar was always open but the restaurant closes down if there aren't enough customers. Unfortunately, we seem to find ourselves wanting to eat when it is closed, for several years. The food used to be good, the portions huge. Their pasta dishes were very good.
