Stopped in for lunch on a really rainy Saturday. They didn't have a hostess, so we waited about five minutes before we were acknowledged. Saw when we were sat (right away) that they had just served a party of 19, so the delay made sense. Had the fish sandwich (REALLY good) and the Au Jus (decent). Our daughter had the... More

Let me tell you, this place is awesome! My wife and I went to this place while in Grand Haven. The service, the food, just awesome! I had a steak which was cooked perfectly. The drinks are great as well. We chose this place as my wife had already been to the other popular restaurant on the lake front. The... More

We visited for dinner. Great atmosphere of new and old decor, excellent service, and the white chicken chili was to die for! I had the shrimp curry pasta special, and it was average. My wife had the lake perch, and it was good, although not the best she's had--a little salty and chewy. Sauteed veggies were perfectly seasoned and cooked... More

JW's is phenomenal in every sense of the word; from the food, to the atmosphere and service. I highly recommend JW's Food and Spirits.

Always fun to meet friends for happy hour at this establishment. They have great service, good prices and a nice selection of food and drinks to choose from. It also has a nice cozy atmosphere. My favorite food there is the white chicken chili...the bomb!

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!
