Great food and service!!! It was a bit annoying that they only have valet parking, given COVID-19 I don’t want to do valet. While the food was excellent, the menu was largely fried foods with not too many other options.

I was very disappointed as I had heard good things. Service was excellent but food mediocre—tiniest Blue Points I have every seen and muscle not properly cut for $36 per doz when our gorgeous Gulf Coast are in season and local; spaghetti sauce like tomato basil soup; and mushy Blue Crab Beignets.

I enjoyed a lovely brunch with my mom. The food was excellent, along with wonderful customer service. I was so surprised at how quickly everything moved. The atmosphere was awesome and we both enjoyed the live music! Will be back for brunch again very soon!

We really enjoy this place. Staff is consistently affable and attentive. ...but the $29 Lobster Roll seems to get smaller every trip. I'll have to find another "go to" entre.

The patio was nice with socially distanced tables, lights etc. The only downside was the 4 children running around, chasing each other and screaming when caught. Felt like I was in someone's back yard. Guess I remembered BB as a more adult venue? We were there between 6:00 and 7:30 pm so I might recommend a little later.

Outdoor seating area is fantastic. Lots of Covid precautions, but they have done it right! I had blackened salmon which was delicious and brussels sprouts which were just meh, but the ambience was great and so was the service!

I was disappointed that I had reservations for 3 for outdoor patio. When we arrived we were told there was no table available outside. The wait for a table out there would be 1 1/2 hours.
Very poor on their part.

We were pleasantly surprised at just how lovely this space is. I had eaten there on their first day and was unimpressed. I am so glad I gave it a second chance. The outdoor seating is fatuous - well spaced and comfortable chairs and tables.
The service is excellent. We were greeted upon arrival. We were taken quickly to a lovely table. Our server was prompt.
We got sandwiches and burgers - and it was just better than most places. The buns were fresh and flavorful and warm. The side dishes were piping hot. It's all those little things that add up to a great meal.
This will go into the frequent rotation - it is just so nice.

Amazing service, as always, Fernando really took care of us! My friend was visiting for the first time, and dinner and drinks were amazing. We were never without a drink or a timely check in from Fernando. I’m always proud to recommend BB Lemon to anyone looking for a great spot for solid food, drinks and service.

We went for brunch on a Sunday. The setting and atmosphere were pleasing, but the food, and service fell short. Crab beignets were overly doughy and the pigs in a blanket were greasy. The American breakfast was served on inappropriate dishes that made eating difficult and posed a risk of spilling food. On the positive side, the grilled cheese sandwich was exceptional and the egg in a roll was creditable. And the lemonade is excellent.

The place seemed understaffed, as it was difficult even to place an order, much less get a waiter's attention for requests, like getting the check.

There was a sign proclaiming live music, but instead there was a DJ playing music at the volume of a 747 taking off. The noise level greatly detracted from the ambience at brunch time.

It looked so promising when we arrived, but by the time we left, we were disappointed. Surprising that these proprietors are wasting a good concept.

It was wonderful! Our server was always available when we needed her. The tables were socially distanced and there was plenty of ventilation. There were beautiful Christmas trees up that added to the Christmas feeling.

I was in a group of 6 and we ordered a variety of things. Everything was delicious! My only negative comment would be that I ordered a lobster roll, but it was tiny! I think I finished it in 2 bites. It was yummy, but it was more like an appetizer than a main course. I had to eat off my friends’ plates to fill up. Not the best idea during Covid! Overall, great experience and place.
