“Now called JW's Burger Bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2012

A great little restaurant! Excellent burgers and fries (including sweet potato fries). Other options as well.

This place is popular with families, young people and older people - a nice mix!

Had to change their name recently to JW's - still the same place.

“Great find is Scituate”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2012

Third time to the restaurant -- this time with friends. Great appetizers -- did not need to get a full meal. While not an inexpensive place -- good value for the money. Staff were wonderful -- even with a full house.

“Great place; but pricey.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2012

Not much of a challenge for a great chef like Jimmy Burke, but the burgers are delicious-try the Happy Cow (pork, not beef)-just not sure if I can justify $12.00 for a cheeseburger. Loved the fried pickles with pastrami-sounds awful; tastes fabulous; the fries are really good, as well. Great atmosphere, lots of kitschy memorabilia on the walls-super bar staff; especially Rose.

“Too expensive for the product”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2012

Good service at the bar but just too expensive for the quality of the burger. Better off going down the road at Satuit tavern or Mill wharf.
