If I was rating this on just the white chili I would have gave a 5 star rating. My pulled pork sliders were ok, my friend didn't care for his burrito and my daughter got the kids nacho's which wasn't very good and the fries looked and tasted old. Service was ok. I might give them one more try when... More

Try the white chicken chili and ask for Beth. Not really set up for family meals but perfect for meeting up for a drink and a meal with a few friends. You can actually hear each other and hold a conversation!

Reasonable prices and always a good experience. Very good service and just CONSISTENTLY good food. Try the perch or burger and the white chili is also good (but not my thing, personally). It's just far enough away from downtown that most tourists can't find it, so it's usually full of us locals! Highly recommend...

Went to have lunch and only went because of the reviews on trip advisor. Food was good, Beth our server was amazing! We got the perch, chicken chili and the French onion soup - delicious!

This restaurant is a few blocks out of the main downtown area, but the food was good, and the wait staff was friendly and attentive. I had a minor issue with my meal, but it was quickly resolved. The dress was pretty casual.

While JW's always seams packed for dinner the lunch crowd is a little smaller and you are more apt to get a seat quicker. Same great food just a little more convenient. My wife and I have always received both good food and service here and would like to recommend it for your next lunch meeting or dinner out.

My husband and I went here with another couple and dinner and dessert was excellent. The three of them got the special which was filet medallions, A twice baked potato, and salad or soup and it was $22. Obviously for that type of food, you're going to pay a little more and everybody was extremely satisfied by it! I got... More
