Came here given Trip Advisor's reviews and our need for steak. We had the onion rings (they were good) but the standouts were the ribeye steak and seared catfish. The steak was served exactly as we like it (medium rare) and the catfish was excellent. The baked potato must have been grown near a nuclear plant as it was huge.... More

Phoned in order. One chicken fried steak, three burgers fries, 1/2 order onion rings. Massive amount of onions rings. Arrived at the restaurant about 1:30 pm, no other vehicles in line had a little longer wait than expected even took us 30 minutes to get there. But the food was really tasty. Will be back.

When in the Roundtop Warrenton area, make the effort to go to J W's Steakhouse. The atmosphere is upbeat and fun, the waitstaff is excellent and the food is just great! And the desserts....they speak for themselves.

Nice Texas style steakhouse right in the middle of cattle country. Rustic and pleasant atmosphere. Very good service. My brother and I had the large filet which was tasty but not as tender as we've got here before.

The best steak for miles. It's pricy for a small town but everything is fresh and flavored well. The prime rib is great too.

Dined here last night with a group of colleagues and had a great evening. There's an atmosphere there that is just fun. Can't put my finger on it, but everything about the place is pleasant - the food, the drink, the great staff and the surroundings. They have a varied menu but I always zone in on the steaks. Their...

My wife and I had lunch two days while visiting the antique fair. Tuesday had the fried chicken, green beans, sweet rice and side salad. The fried chicken and sweet rice were very good. Green beans and salad were good. But what they called cornbread was served with our meal. It tasted more like corn pudding, my wife and l... More

People come from miles around to eat at JW's. They have a special at lunch every day that is a bargain and always tasty. Their steaks are melt in your mouth tender and cooked precisely to your order.
