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.

Seafood paella is generally never consistent with the same flavor and taste, at JBs. I find it is always a surprise. However, we found it delectably good this night. All of the seafood in the dish was mild and fresh. The rice lacked a typical saffron enhancement as is typical for the dish, but rather had a buttery taste this night. Quite good and enjoyable. While the snapper from the special menu was satisfying, but not particularly something to write home about.

Deserts were of course decadent and very filling.
Key lime pie, was a bit light and too airy for my taste, but good nonetheless. The orange-vanilla grand marnier amarillo pie was just right—not too sweet. However, compared to the bottom crust in the Key Lime’s pie, the crust of this pie was hard as a brick. Nonetheless, it too was good.

Overall, all of the food was pleasingly satisfying.

Jake, our server was second to none. Courteous, attentive and helpful. He was a “5” on a scale of 0 to 5, where 5 is the BEST!!!

Sitting near bar and music. It was difficult to hear and converse. Also we were first given an inside table. Told since I made reservation on opentable and did not specify immediately they give inside tables to those reservations even though I did call directly to request inside table. However when we arrived and said we were not pleased with our table we were given a table outside. I would return but most probably during the week when it is not so busy. The ambiance during the week is outstanding

Everything was excellent except I would choose an inside table next time as the volume outside was extreme. I loved having the band there but coupled with the people at the bar and dining it was hard to have a conversation at the table. Also since we were sitting close to the bar, there were people smoking which I did not enjoy.

We have gone there two times now, giving the place a second chance. Food is good, but not great. I had mahi mahi and it was very dry. My husband had scallops and they were ok. We ate outside and it was very noisy, hard to hear others. I did like the live music. It was quiet and pleasing. This might be a great place for a cocktail. I don’t plan on returning for dinner, just too many other great places.

I would definitely recommend making a reservation here. The food is soooooo awesome!! Make sure to eat outside. The pigeons are cute walking by you and they won't jump on the table and steal your food. The Lobster and Shrimp salad was great!! Everything that I have eaten there has been great!! Valet parking is $6, but it's better than trying to find a parking spot. I don't know how much the public parking is, but I would rather pay the $6 than to walk further and probably pay few dollars less.

Booked table for 7.30, on arrival hostess was very rude and told us to go to hostess on lower deck. Ignored for more than 5 minutes by the hostess who then said we are 5 mins early and have us a monitor for a table. There were 3 tables free the whole time we were waiting. We were shown to a table basically in the corridor. People we met earlier had walked in without a reservation and were given a nice table by the beachside. It was so noisy we couldn’t hear the server. I asked for a seafood pasta dish but he said there wasn’t one. We asked to move tables but he said it wasn’t anything to do with him and the hostess organising tables. My salmon was perfectly cooked but my husband’s cod was dry, bland and tasteless.

We had a table outside and it was windy and cold. They need heaters or at least blinds that can be dropped to break the wind. You can’t see the ocean at night anyhow so at least break the wind.
