I went to JW's at Griffin Gate Marriott during a recent stay. The convince of staying on property appealed to me and I was not disappointed. The food and service was very good. I was very happy with my dining experience.

Award winning Butter cake, served by the wonderful Ron. Celebrated a birthday with a steak dinner at JW's. Had one of the best servers from my entire life.

The service was not as good as it was 6 years ago when I stayed there. The atmosphere is good, but the food is also overpriced.

First things first: The food was great! Tenderloin sliders were the perfect mid-afternoon snack. However, the food isn't the whole experience. We were sitting at the bar, and despite being fairly empty it was deceptively difficult to get the bartender's attention. She seemed not to be too interested in us or the other diners near us. Secondly, it was startling... More

A group of us at a convention staying at the Marriott decided to eat here. All of us were happy with our selections, but the prices were pretty expensive for what we received. Can't really recommend unless you like the convenience of this place being in the hote.

The food and meals are excellent. Was here before and the staff remembered who I was. It's nice when you travel and people remember you. It makes it feel more personal than business. Everything I have ate has been first class, from the appetizers to the entree. Sadly I haven't tried the desserts, but from the looks of them I... More

I had their "famous" BBQ Bacon wrapped shrimp. The bacon wasn't crisp...it was almost raw...I was disappointed. The shrimp came with the salad which was a sirloin steak bue cheese salad. The blue cheese was in chunks that were too large. I would have preferred to have time to eat my shrimp before the salad arrived. The steak came early... More

We love to have brunch here when in Lexington. Everyone is able to find something both hot and cold. And the coffee is perfect always.
