bb's restaurant and bar
Great BrunchThe food was different from the usual fare. My husband had fried green tomato benedict and I had the crab cake benedict. Both were extremely good. The desserts are wonderful. The young lady who waited on us was friendly and very good at her job.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMA Night Out in JacksonvilleGreat fun at the neighborhood hot spot!

Used to live in Auckland, NZ and b.b.'s is closest we've found to it's casual cafe's with great food and energy. Tuna tartare kicked taste buds up a notch. Pork tenderloin and duck breast were superb and choc brownie with ice cream and salted caramel sauce were fantastic. Waiter, Mark, was there but not in the way. Great dinner. Also love their salads for lunch.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day WeekendYou would have no idea it was Mother's Day. The staff was very attentive and the food arrived at our table very quickly and everything was delicious. Great staff and food!!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMbb'sExcellent and memorable dining experience. We went for a special occasion and were not disappointed. The food was timed very well- we enjoyed our wine and appetizers and conversation before the main course was pushed out, and had time to breathe before desert and the bill.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWas surprised to find howWas surprised to find how much I liked this spot after by-passing it for years. Great food, very nice service (no complaints but we didn't really challenge them). I will definitely return. Had out of town guest from San Diego just for lunch and they were impressed. Had the salmon and it may be the best I've had in Jacksonville - and I've eaten salmon almost everywhere because I love it.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently delicious!Fun place, nice wine selection. I enjoyed the grilled salmon salad with nut couscous. Very satisfying and fresh. My boyfriend enjoyed his "usual" open face crab cake sandwich and ceasar salad. The crab cake is tasty with a crisp exterior, well executed.
Crossiant bread pudding!!!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMbb's has become a standardbb's has become a standard for us. Anytime that we are going to a performance in Jacksonville, this is dinner. The food is always outstanding and the duck wonton is unbelievably good. The service is always prompt without being omnipresent. They understand how to pace a meal t get you to the venue for curtain time. bb's is only a five minute drive fromthe downtown Jacksonville venues.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a lovely date nightWe had a lovely date night ar bb's. The duck wonton napoleon is our fav, and the filet was awesome. With the jasmine wall in bloom, we loved sitting outside.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMReally good find!!! LovedReally good find!!! Loved my appetizer of shrimp salad and fried oyster and the steak sandwich on foccia was outstanding - served with either a salad or parmesan fries. There is also an excelent three-course fix priced menu for $25. Located on a quiet steet near the Hampton Inn and Wyndam hotels. Atmosphere is industrial chic - great bar with full service. Good wine list by the glass - had a wine I loved in Chile.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and a fresh vibeGreat food and a fresh vibe make this one of my favorite places to go for a special occasion or just a girls day out for lunch. The service is always fantastic and i have never been disappointed with anything at bb's.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat atmosphereGreat atmosphere and great food with a constantly changing dinner menu. Very hip, somewhat eclectic dining experience....one of the city's best.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Dining Experience(s)We appreciate restaurants that still accept reservations. We also appreciate that there is no silly rule that all people in your party must be present to be seated. The food and service is unmatched.

I will visit again4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food here is amazing,The food here is amazing, some of the best I've ever had. We had the duck wontons as an appetizer and it was unbelievable. I had the seared duck breast for my entree and I was blown away. It came with brussel sprout hash which was delicious and I typically don't like brussel sprouts.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWanted to Bribe the Chef toWanted to Bribe the Chef to move to Hilton Head, SC. Outstanding!! Jacksonville should be proud to have such an amazing Chef in their City.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have eaten at bb's manyWe have eaten at bb's many times and it's our go-to restaurant when we are in the downtown area. We always order the tuna tartare appetizer. It's simply the best around, and we have tried it at most Jacksonville restaurants. On this particular night, we both ordered the fish special which was flounder. It was definitely fresh and prepared with just a light saute. My husband is VERY picky about fish and he said a couple of times how good it was. Our service was excellent, as usual, and we were able to get in and out in an hour, as we were going to a concert from there.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderfully different menuWonderfully different menu with many options that I would love to try. What we selected was very tasty and well presented. Can't wait to go back and try something else. Service was very good. Seating felt a little crowded.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe hype is realWe read the hype and bb's delivered with outstanding food that made us lick the plates. Don't be scared of getting the higher priced items at $25 they are worth every penny. Also save room for dessert they have about 20 options in a glass case that all looked delicious.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGood timeOverall good experience. The atmosphere was lively so if you are looking for a quiet dinner probably try elsewhere. It promoted active talking and the pace at which dinner was served was perfect for conversations. Waiter was awesome. I got the wrong beverage...though it tasted awesome anyhow, and after he realized it he brought me an extra on his own...I never would have noticed.
Food was good and fairly healthy too. Overall the atmosphere and service were the key highlights.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely loved it. BBsAbsolutely loved it. BBs had been highly recommended, and I can now add mywelf to the list of people who see it as one of the best restaurant options in Jacksonville. The food was amazing and the menu had lots of options that all sounded great--I'll definitely have to go back to try some of the others!3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMLove the asian salad -- butLove the asian salad -- but as a vegetarian, I think it's a little ridiculous that they don't reduce the price if you get it without the chicken. Also, the service was not very good. What should have been a 45 minute lunch took much longer than that.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is an excellent restaurant!This is an excellent restaurant! I would recommend the food, the ambiance, the location, everything. This is a new favorite!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a light dinner early(5:45pm)We had a light dinner early(5:45pm)so the restaurant was not full and the noise level was low. Later, as the place filled noise level was moderate. We enjoyed an incredible appetizer of selected(by us)cheeses,dried fruit,honey with a warm fresh loaf of bread.We then each had a gourmet pizza each with its own distinct flavors. The portions were just right. The crust was baked to crispy perfect and the toppings were fresh; the topping combinations were creative and delicious. Helpful was the suggested wine pairings on the menu. Finally we ended our meal with coconut cake and bread pudding. The desserts were fresh sweet and satisying, perfect with our dark roast coffee!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMb.b.'s is the place to be!Asparagus steamed crisp with tender fried clams served with mousse & green garnish. Half green salad with assorted fresh vegetables tossed with tasty vinaigrette dressing. Medium rare breast of duck perfectly coupled with sautéed greens. Filet seared to medium temp paired with layered scalloped potatoes and tender asparagus. A lovely dining experience with Chris topped off with a bakery delight, key lime pie.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat as always, and the PrixGreat as always, and the Prix Fixe menu on Mon.-Thur. is a fantastic deal.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMTrendy dining off the beaten pathI stumbled onto this excellent restaurant in Jacksonville almost by accident. I did a search around where I was and this was a block away. One seat left at the bar, and I took it. Great by the glass wine list, the best shrimp bisque I have ever had, and a delicious grilled shrimp salad. The shrimp were spicy and perfectly cooked. Only disappointment was too few "other" things going on in a bowl of designer greens. Would have been nice to have more of the featured items. Huge dessert case looked mouth watering, and I am sure most items were. I sadly picked the Red Velvet cake, which was moist and had a fabulous cheesecake layer at the bottom, but not much taste to the cake. Apparently though it is being retired. So, next time something else.3/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
