Unpretentious restaurant located in what used to be a home. The original rooms became small dining rooms, and the whole place has a relaxed, informal feel to it. Many old photos on the walls. The salmon was probably the best I have ever eaten, and when I asked for recipe details, Chef Brad (who is also the owner and bartender)... More

Excellent food with great specials every night. Small bar, but adequately stocked. Great steaks and pasta dishes. Service was great.

We were disappointed & didn't measure up to what was advertised. Excepting more from a century old house both in ambience & menu. It had the feel of a frat house. The menu was just so so. We won't return or recommend this restaurant

WJ's is a block off Main Street, downtown Boonville. Small, cozy, with excellent service, & we enjoyed all the old-time historic photos that cover the walls. Most menu items are reasonable: soup, salad, hamburgers. Dinners though are a bit pricey. My husband's butterflied pork cutlet was good, but my salmon was exceptional--flaky, tender & very flavorful with a balsamic sauce.... More

Brad did a super job!! The food was great at a very good price. If you ask maybe he'll mix you up a drink. Legal advise cost extra

WJ's is a block of Main St in downtown Boonville. There's no large signs drawing attention to the restaurant. In fact it looks like many of the residential homes in the area. What those homes don't have, at least for sale, is great food. Grab a drink, eat a meal. You won't be disappointed. It's not big, so you may... More

Found WJ’s completely by accident by taking a side-road, just off of Main Street. Stopped in to catch a beer and ended up eating a great streak with a well-prepared salad. I do need to go back, soon, to try one of their homemade pastas.

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!
