Always have a great burger no matter which I order...great fries accompany the burger too. Fresh produce for toppings are better than most burger joints and the Bar service is always top notch. Nice draft beer selection too.

I have been to JW's about 10 times now, mostly in the warmer months. They have a great selection of burger combinations (although my go-to is the spicy one with pepper jack and jalapenos) and usually at least 10 or so good variety beers on...More

Looks like Jimmy Buffet stopped by and decorated; cute, cozy, cheerful; something different for the area. Great burger menu, fried pickles to die for! Need MUCH better ventilation.......even waiting for takeout, smelled like a grill on the way home. Wasn't pleasant.

What a great selection of delicious hamburgers. Haven't had a chance to try other selections but the carmelized onions and gorgonzola burger was a home run! Can't wait to get back and sample the entire menu!
