We are locals. Whenever out of town guests want to go to dinner at the beach, we take them to JB's.
I will have to reconsider our choice the next time. Service was terrible. The greeter at the hostess stand met us with a scowl. That's the only way to describe it. Her attitude was downright rude.

Our waiter took very little interest in us. Our reservation was for 7:00 PM and we were not seated until 7:15. We did not get our meal until 8:15. Overall, a very poor experience.

Made reservations on Opentable because always had long wait if we just walked in. Very impressed that we were seated immediately. Our server was Sam, who was professional yet personable. Great employee. Each of our meals were delicious, and not overpriced. Will definitely return, thank you!

Great location. Had a table just steps from the sand. You can see the ocean right from the table. I gave everything five stars, except for a slight demerit of four stars for the food. the food for our party was all very tasty. Unfortunately, my dish was served on the cold side. Our waiter graciously offered to have it re-made. When I declined, the manager, Dee, quickly stopped by to apologize, and offered some complimentary drinks, and a dessert. Excellent service from the valet, to the host staff, to the wait staff, food runners, and management. Can't wait to go back!

We always enjoy our trips here. This time was no exception. The food is great, the service is top-notch, and the view cannot be beaten! I recommend the Lobster Benedict (though I prefer the previous recipe). The eggs were poached to perfection, the bacon was crispy, and they absolutely do not skimp on the lobster meat. Throw in a free mimosa/champagne and you have a winner!

The food as excellent, as always, and the service very good. My consistent complaint about JB's is the noise level - it's just too loud. One cannot even speak with the person sitting in the next chair. Management should really figure out some way to improve the acoustics by installing sound sails, drapes, or something similar. There must be a way to improve the acoustics without spending a fortune.

This was our second visit to JB's and it was even more enjoyable than our first. The food was excellent (again). What made this visit even more enjoyable was our server, Toni. She was absolutely tremendous, giving us exactly the correct amount of attention on a night when the restaurant was very busy.

Went there for Valentine’s Day, I ordered the N.Y. Steak cut and found it dry and flavorless even though it was cooked medium rare. The sides were a bland mashed potatoes and 3 different colored carrots, probably steamed. I didn’t eat it.
The steak looked great, just disappointed in the texture and flavor of the meat. Very underwhelming. The bar drinks were good. My girlfriend ordered the lobster scampi and that was very good. The wait staff was very friendly and helpful. Our waiter gave us a key lime pie for the trouble of the steak, which was very good, although the graham cracker crust was bit over cooked. So it had a bit of burnt taste to it.

I’d go there again, I would just stay away from the red meat options. Some places are just better at seafood.
This is one of those.

We had gone to JBs a few years ago and loved it. We had a server, Luis, who was outstanding. But then we went back with our children and did not have Luis and hit a snag and we never went back.
We decided after not being there for 2 years, to give it another chance .We were a party of 6 for Valentines Day. We ate outside and had a fabulous server, Madison. ( I was able to greet Luis). Our dinners were fabulous. Four of us had the shrimp and lobster salad which was extraordinary and enough to feed an army. Happily we will be back.

My companion had the Scallops which were seared and delicious.
I had 1/2 Maine lobster stuffed with crab. Very small lobster but very good. The summer squash was over cooked . The offered to replace it but by then I was full.
The ambiance was exceptional with a view of the ocean. Would definitely return and reccomend.

While JBs is located in a fantastic location right on the beach in Deerfield the magic ends there. The front reception is crowded and the staff is perpetually distracted (my 3rd bad experience this week) If you choose to sit outside you then have to see an outside hostess and you get to hang out in front of the servers set up area while you wait endlessly for your table you reserved. It's sloppy and a very poor experience. When you finally sit down the menu is adequate and the food is relatively good for "pub" food but the menu is disappointing with regards to things like lacking a lobster dinner among other stock elements that would be anticipated. For quality and price you can do far better in the area. It is now on my must avoid list.

I would have given this an excellent review, but we made a reservation with the idea of sitting outside. When we got there they would only give us a table next to their very noisy bar, and since I had my 92 year old mother with us, that was not a viable option, so we ended up sitting inside which was a big disappointment for all of us.
