You’re in good hands here, so please—relax and make yourself at home.
Serving up an innovative take on New American cuisine, we are passionate about creating memorable dining experiences with unparalleled service.
Since 2001, we’ve shared our passion, first as Mariscos, and now since 2016 as J. Wilson’s. Our name is a nod to Mr. John Wilson, who founded the famous Lawrence establishment, Johnny’s Tavern. We got our start there when Rick bought the Tavern from Wilson himself in 1978.
At J. Wilson’s we believe that the devil is in the details. Drawing from the bounty of the seasons, we feature sustainable, locally sourced offerings with a modern twist.
We know you will find a new favorite every visit.
Expect the unexpected in our stylish yet comfortable atmosphere.
Experience a new way to nurture your soul at J. Wilson’s-
We all truly appreciate you, our restaurant family.
