J.W.'s is famous for its White Chili, creamy with plenty of tender chicken-mm-mmm. They are also known for their fresh lightly coated fried perch and great salads. I have eaten there many times and always see friends and other families with their children.

Local place. I had the Perch and it was very good. Excellent French onion soup. Waited short time at the bar. Not super trendy but good local place if you're not looking for fancy. Good for family as well as couples. A few tables in the bar area if you prefer.

the meal was average, it was a Thursday night and surprisingly very busy. I had the perch which was good, my wife had the black & blue steak, it had to much Cajun seasoning.

Great restaurant! Always have consistently good food. Service staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Nice selection - will have something for everyone's appetite. Recommend calling for reservations as they are always busy. If you don't no big deal - the wait usually isn't that long. Nice bar selection, craft brews etc. Be sure to check out the wine shop next door!

To celebrate St.Patrick's Day we had a table here for six. The special short menu offered corned beef and cabbage and corned beef sandwiches. The trim was perfectly lean, and while portions were not large they were adequate. It was very busy and crowded but service was very good. The bar did a nice job on the martinis. Reservations are...

On business, had lunch here 3 days in a row. Perfect service, and tried the $8 lunch specials each time and was very impressed. The sandwiches were great, complimented with great homemafe soups.

This place is one of the best kept secrets in town. The food and drinks are a bargain, especially during happy hour 3 to 6 p.m. which are served in both the bar area and the main dining room. The award winning chicken chili is the best I have ever tasted. We eat here several times each month and have... More
