“Delicious”

Had lunch at JW Finz today. The food was excellent and portions very large. Seafood totally fresh and local. Atmosphere was very nice. Servers were very friendly. We will definitely dine here again and would recommend to others living in the area or visiting.

“Excellent!”
Reviewed 29 September 2013

My wife and I ate there on a Wednesday night, just as a last minute decision. We had heard that the owners also owned Fisherman's Corner in Perdido Key, which is great place to eat.
I had tried their Fried Gumbo salad and was delighted that J.W. Finz also had it on their menu. It was great, as I expected! We had the seafood nachos for an appetizer and I had to have my salad boxed to go. Portions were very generous.

Great atmosphere, views and food. I highly recommend. Oh, I forgot to mention that on that particular night, the special was buy one, get one free entree. So glad we decided to stop and try it! Hats off to the staff, as well.
