When I travel, I like to try local places that aren't found in other areas. This place was great! Met a friend for lunch on a Saturday and got a table right away. Our server was AWESOME! She was fast and friendly. We ordered fried...pickles, but she did fail to tell us that they were homemade sweet pickles. She did take them off of the bill, though, AND gave us one free dessert. The dessert was the best part of the meal! I had white chocolate bread pudding that was to die for! Would definitely return if I'm ever in that area again.More

This spot was really good! We are from California and passing through while taking our daughter on some college visits. Food is excellent, drink options were also on point, and our server, Brady, was amazing. Thanks for a great dinner J Wilson! The Canzone Family

Based on TripAdvisor reviews, we were really looking forward to this one. Maybe they were just having an off day, but our experience wasn't great. The waitress was super cold. No greeting, robotic. Our appetizer had been burnt in old oil. We had to ask...her to bring it back, we can't believe it was even sent out. (They did remake it, and it was betterish) but they shot us the evil eye the entire rest of the time we were there. Our actual food was also really greasy, and the shrimp and grits had some kind of brown gravy on it. It was not good. The only slightly friendly person in there was the manager/owner who brought us our to go boxes.More

Decided to search out a local eatery; and stopped at JWilson’s for lunch on a recent road trip. Excellent local cuisine featuring Cajun and Creole food, along with lots of seafood. Must try the Man Candy and boudain balls appetizers! Gumbo and Red beans and...rice are also delicious.More

So I’m an idiot! I left the review for J Wilson’s on its sister restaurant, so I’m going to leave JWPatio review here. So sorry about that. The Patio atmosphere is fantastic, the food is absolutely scrumptious. Quit frankly, I would love some of that...quality food at this location. Every thing they do is top notch. From training their team, cook food, quality, attention to details!!! And it’s all home made nothing packaged. What more could you want? They also have the cutest little outdoor patio!!More

I had the fettuccine which was great and my friend had the Oh My Cod sandwich. She said it was better than great. Best fish she ever had! I'll have to have it next time. Her soup and veggies were lukewarm, but the server was...glad to reheat the soup and bring more toasty veggies. Everything else about our visit was 5 star. The owner even made the rounds and spoke to all the customers. Definitely will be going back next time we're in town.More

Llegamos aquí como “pit-stop” en un viaje Houston - Nueva Orleans. El lugar tenía buena pinta, así que decidimos comer aquí. ¡No decepcionó! De entrada pedí el Man-Candy (Pork-belly ahumado mezclada con gelatina de habanero), delicioso, así como el Hamburger Steak Stack (Dos filetes de...hamburguesa de seis onzas apilados y cargados con jalapeños y queso cheddar, cubiertos con salsa de champiñones), también delicioso. Mi familia pidió una hamburguesa, un flat bread (pizza) y una ensalada, todo delicioso también. Además de todo fue un muy buen precio, $89 dólares, somos cinco). Volvería aquí sin dudarlo. 100% recomendado. We came here as a pit stop on a Houston - New Orleans trip. The place looked good so we decided to eat here. It did not disappoint!

We wereon our way home from our anniversary/New Years trip from Galveston and the wife said she was hungry. I Goggled places that have brunch and numerous came up. J Wilson was one of them and I was reading reviews and meun and told her...it looks like it may be good. So we stopped and ordered. I had biscuits and gray with sausage and eggs. Wife had Pecan Waffles and Chicken. We ordered a pitcher of Mimosas, $15!. Or a single is $3! Food was amazing as were the drinks. A little into our meal, our server, Brandis, brought us some hashbrowns and said we may wanna try them. Look different than any I had seen. But I tell you, amazing. We could have made a meal just out of those. They were almost like a caserole with cheese, onions, and other things not sure what. Nevertheless, higly recommend this place. Service was also impectable. Brandis is a really great server and you can tell she enjoys pleasing her customers. Thanks for the expersience J Wilson. We will definately make the trip from Lake Charles to go back one weekend.More

Yes, we believe there was a TV in the bar area; however, we would suggest that you call them and find out for sure.
