Great little Restuarant
Always love going to BB's!! My fiance and I found this place by accident 2 years ago. Everytime we go it is AMAZING!!!! The food is excellent and the staff are very attentive and friendly. Dont forget to check out the extensive desert selections made fresh daily.

Asian Chop Chop Salad is a must
I love bb's. Their service is always prompt, pleasant and efficient. The daily specials are alsways great and offer seasonal variety.The desserts are to die for, and so large you should share. My favorite menu item, and the one that brings me back again and agian is the Asian Chop Chop salad with tuna. I'm addicted.

The 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.

b b's never fails
I live in San Marco and b b's is one of the best places by far in the San Marco area. The food is excellent, the atmosphere lovely, the staff friendly and efficient. All in all you just can't go wrong with b b's. The only fault is the limited parking, but its well worth parking a block or so away and walking to if you can't find parking. I go to b b's every time I get the chance to catch up with friends, have a nice romantic meal or just go for the ambiance/food. I highly recommend b b's to anyone looking for a great dining experience!

Of course everyone knows the food is amazing.... But we were
Celebrating an occasion that i had made reservations for AND confirmed
With flowers etc. we had THE WORST table in the room next to the
Kitchen or prep area with CONSTANT activity!!!! And NO ONE except
Levy mentioned our reason for celebrating at all :-(

bb's was terrific!
My husband and I had a wonderful dining experience at bb's. Mostly because we decided to sit at the bar for a cocktail and fell under the superb care of Cory, the bartender for the evening. He enjoyed sharing his knowledge of crafting a cocktail and describing the food offerings for the evening. After asking us a few questions about our taste in wine and offering us a few sips of different wines to gauge our reactions, he chose a perfect bottle of wine for us. His food recommendations were right on the money, as well. Food was excellent. We would go back to bb's in a heartbeat!
7/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
We enjoyed our dinner but our server seemed to have a bit of an attitude. When advising us of the specials he ran thru them so quickly that we really were unsure of what he had just said. We also asked him if we could move over one table (so we could talk) and he said "I knew you were going to do that." Was that really necessary? I think not. I would like to try BB's again but we'll definitly make sure we have a different server.
7/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Another great overall experience at BBs. Dined there Friday July 12th.
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
BB's is a great choice if you love excellent food and service. It has a bit of a New York feel to it. And you can choose to spend a little (excellent salads and sandwiches) or a lot (excellent dinner menu). And the desserts are outstanding!! You always have a good feeling about a restaurant with both a chef and pastry chef and BB's delivers!
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
We greatly enjoyed our Monday night dinner. The
We really enjoyed our Monday night dinner visit their specials are great value.

Can't Go Wrong
It had been a few years since I ate at bb's, and now I plan to be back again in a few days. Great atmosphere, nice and cool inside during the summer heat, terrific desserts that you simply must save room for or take home and something for everyone on the menu. It's easy to see why this has been such a successful restaurant for so long.
7/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfect for GNO. The wait staff did not rush us at all. The food and service was perfect. I do recommend BBs to many out of town visitors too!

1st Night of Eatupdowntown
The menu that was available for eatupdowntown was excellent. The bread pudding pure heaven.
8/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our first visit to BBs. We found the menu to be interesting and the food vey tasty with excellent presentation. We ordered from the fixed price menu and were pleased with the value of the meal. Our waiter was very attentive, and pleasant, although our friend's check needed 2 corrections before it was accurately completed. We all ordered from the fixed price menu, but the reduced prices were not reflected on the one check. The only criticism is that the restaurant is very noisy. It is not conducive to visiting while eating.
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Eat up Downtown
Our first trip to bb's. What a delightful surprise. Although we were early and there were other people waiting, they seated us right away. Our waiter was excellent, giving us time to get settled and making excellent suggestions. We all used the Price Fix menu, the pork tenderloin was our entree and the white chocolate cheese cake the dessert. Our compliments to the chef the meal was superb.
Will definitely go again.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food and service are top rate. It is hard to find another restaurant that can surpass the dessert choices.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
bb's knows how to execute Saturday night dining. Despite a good crowd, the seating, service, and timing of the meal were impeccable. The food was excellent, as were the wine and cocktails. We had a party of five and all of us enjoyed our meal.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Short of Perfect
Food and especially the service were outstanding. And the place has energy.
However our seating was a let down. We had reservations and were placed
In the far back corner. We were not asked if this was OK or whether we wanted to
Sit at the bar where there were seats. We're not being negative only constructive.
Still an outstanding value.
8/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
You can't go wrong here!
This restaurant has everything you'd want from beginning to end: the ambience is energetic, the service is friendly and efficient, and the food is outstanding from the appetizers to the fabulous desserts. This is a great restaurant whether for lunch or dinner and should not be missed while in Jacksonville. No matter what. you must save room for desserts! The desserts require a "tour" after your meal there's so many. You won't be sorry.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Night at BB's
Had a recommend to dine here and I would also endorse you try it. Energetic atmosphere with good service and great food. Thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience of a local restaurant serving a variety of good dishes.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great time at b.b.'s
Recently had a girl's night out at b.b.'s restaurant and bar. The atmosphere was great, the food was delicious, and the wait staff was very friendly and quick. Most of the people in our group had never been to b.b.'s, and everyone kept gushing about how everyone was being so nice to us. We will most definitely be back in the near future. Oh, and the white chocolate raspberry cheesecake is to die for!
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Another great choice..
I was looking some someplace different at the last minute, and found bb's ranked pretty high on Urbanspoon's Jacksonville listings. I was able to get a reservation at the Open Table link, and away we went. It is an "energetic " place, with tables fairly close together. There were families on both sides of us.
The shrimp Bisque was very good. We both ordered the beef tenderloin special, which was cooked exactly to temperature, melt in you mouth good, with a delicious topping and the sides were delicious too. Come to bb's just for dessert too. We had the best carrot cake, but lots of fresh options. The drinks were also well prepared.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and desserts
This was our second visit to BB's and the food has been great each time. Although the fish in my wife's sandwich came out undercooked, it was quickly taken care of. The service was a bit slow but it was a Friday night and the place was packed. We lost our waitress a couple of times, but we did enjoy ourselves because the food is so good. Not exactly a place for a romantic dinner due to the closeness of seating and noise level, but if you're looking for a good meal, you will find it. The menu was limited, but what they did make was excellent. We had the filet and a fish BLT, both were top shelf and even the sides were great.
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
bb's comes thru again
This is the second time we have been there since their new chef has introduced some new things/ very nice hopefull it will continue.... would like to see some wine or food events also
9/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Awesome food... the steak and lobster -- Yum! The Truffle Pizza -- to die for!
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
My family and I loved bb's. Our server was great in helping us pick out dishes and drinks best suiting what we were looking for. It is on the pricey side, the braveheart beef tenderloin is to die for. The menu changes everyday, so I look forward to going back and trying something new. Also, you have to try the bread pudding for desert
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent food and service
I had one of the daily specials, some fish I'd never eaten before, a poke. It was perfectly prepared, and delicious too. I did not want the rice that came with it, and it was not a problem at all to substitute green beans for the rice. The green beans were delicious also. No dessert this time, but we did take a moment to look at their beautiful array of sumptuous desserts... maybe we will save room for dessert next time!
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our server was great. We appreciate
Our server was great. We appreciated that he didn't just recommend the most popular items on the menu, but made a point to tell us HIS favorites as well, even if they were different. The Duck napoleon was delicious, duo of pork was great and well cooked, but the short ribs in the pasta (while tasty) needed to be cleaned much better of connective tissue. wish we would have had room for dessert because the cakes looked great, but sadly we did not.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was excellent and the menu ambitious. Definitely a place to try mew delights. The pace is slow so allow enough time to enjoy the whole experience.
10/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food is always good. Service is also usually good. Great desserts. My wife loves the warm goat cheese salad and brussetta. I like the steak sandwich. Great restaurant to visit before a show in the city.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Still a little noisy
Had dinner before the symphony this week. This has always been one of my favorites close to the downtown area. Food and service are great but the noise level is still too much.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
A Sweet Treat
The desert case is absolutely gorgeous and the delicacies inside are delectable. The German chocolate cake was so appealing the table next to us could not keep their eyes off of it and finally asked what I selected. My sweetheart ordered the Boston cream cake and he asked it to be slightly heated. Always willing to oblige it was done and delivered to perfection: still standing and beautiful but warm as he desired. The coffee is still not quite right. Gourmet coffee should be a richer roast; however, it was piping hot and was enjoyed with our desserts. We are always happy to return to b.b.'s!
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
imaginative take on comfort food
The basic selections with an imaginative twist, for example, pork shoulder and pork comfit in a pumpkin puree replaces pork chops and applesauce.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I came to celebrate his birthday and had an absolutely amazing time! The food was incredible, service was great, and the atmosphere was awesome!!
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food. Good service. Always a positive dining experience.
10/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and service
All was fine with food and service, but the space a bit squeezed and noisy once filled up with the lunch crowd. If not intending to have a great deal of conversation and the food is the main focus- go for it!
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great local restuarant to
Great local restuarant to have a glass of wine and a salad, (or a signature sandwich, or specialized individual pizza). It's a small place and can get quite noisy. But, the wait staff is attentive and will get you in and out quickly, especially if you are in a hurry.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place for a quaint date night. Reservations seated us immediately. Dinner menu changes daily and staple items and equally exciting.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent before theater
This is a regular stop for us if we are going to the Times Union or Florida Theater. It is a short drive to the theater but the food is far superior to anything in the theater area. Do not miss the Duck Napoleon. I look for it first everytime that I go and I would be really disappointed if it were gone. THe Salads are very good but the portions are huge. THe main courses are all good as far as I know, and the wine list has something for everyone. Beware of the dessert bar. It has a way of sucking you in. Also beware of the portions. Almost any dessert is sized for two normal people but the desserts are extraordinary. We have returned after the theater just for the dessert that we missed earlier.

Great neighborhood spot
We live out of town but enjoyed BB's for its ambiance and decent food. Our waiter wasn't great but other servers seemed to be more on the ball.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
I never knew!
I have dined at BB's twice now, and both times, I have been impressed! Having lived in Jacksonville for three and a half years, I never knew that it was right up the street from my favorite Yoga studio, Radiance Bikram Yoga. I had the same server on both visits, and he was knowledgeable, friendly, and patient. The food is not only delicious, but semi-vegetarian friendly. I look forward to sitting at the bar next time to have a different experience. However, then I'll be temptingly close to the amazing-looking desserts!
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Hard to get past the specials menu
We have eaten at bb's 20+ times. I am not sure that I have ever read the main menu main courses. The duck napoleon is an amazing appitizer off the main menu, but the nightly specials are the key. I have never had even an OK meal using htis approach at bb's. The meals are always fabulous and they really know how to pace a meal if they know that you are headed to the theater. We consider this a mainstay when we visit Jacksonville.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Nice little restaurant, good food, a little bit noisy but with a great atmosphere!
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Decided to dine at BB's for my Birthday with my spouse. The champagne by the glass and food was perfect. Service was excellent and ambience just right. Let me not forget the CAKE!!
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
This is quite a little gem of a restaurant. Great daily specials, many very seasonal in nature. Food is fresh, creative and delicious. Very eccletic menu and the desserts are out of this world. They have a fantastic $25 special that provides, salad/appetizer, main course, dessert and a list of $5 glass wines, which are all good. This is my 3rd trip to this restaurant. I have taken groups there as large as 9 and also dinner for 2. Service is fantasic and food is worth it. I made reservations for all events there and was seated within 5-10 min every time. I highly recommend and every business associate I have dined there has raved about how great it is.
11/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
Menu offers a variety of choices
Menu offers a variety of choices from appetizers, soups, salads, to entrees. Excellent wait staff!

Group of Seven
We had an excellent server and our meal was very good. We had two bottles of affordable and delicious wine .
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food but you wait for it
I have eaten here many times and love the food. However. Every time the service is slow. I have been there on busy nights and casual afternoons and still the same. It took 45 minutes to get a diet coke! I have seen our order sit at the pass for 20 minutes before our server brings it to us. We could not tell him it was there b/c he was no where in sight and it is not a big place! I think they need to train the wait staff aittle better. We keep coming back for the food and location. We just plan to stay longer then expected.
12/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
ALWAYS THE BEST
WE HAVE DINED AT B B'S SEVERAL TIMES. ALWAYS GOOD FOOD, GOOD SERVICE, AND GOOD ATMOSPHERE. I TAKE THAT BACK OUTSTANDING ON ALL THREE ACCOUNTS. YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED IN ANYWAY. CAN'T WAIT TO GO BACK
