bb's restaurant and bar
Fantastic food and service. Will definitely return!
The best local place ... coolest atmosphere .. great service ..
Sept 9, 2019. First visit for the 6 of us. Great ambiance, menu and waitstaff.
As always. Really good food, very pleasant service and unbelievably good dessert!
Top notch dining in a fun atmosphere.
We had not been to Bb’s in a while. We enjoyed our meal and the service. Will be back again.
Innovative lunch menu, fresh ingredients, served promptly in a lively attractive dining room.
There was 4 of us who dined at bb's this last Saturday night prior to the Petatonix concert. We made reservations and were seated immediately upon arrival....the wait staff was EXCELLENT and made us feel like we were regular customers. She gave us ample time to review the menu....answered all of our questions with enthusiasm and didn't miss a beat with regards to our order.....she was super pleasant and made the dining experience that much better....and she never gave us that feeling that we needed to leave just to clear the table....we felt right at home......then there was the food. It was delicious.....2 of our party ordered the Filet, one the Halibut and I order the pork cheeks....we were all sharing our meal with the others because we were convinced ours was the best on the table....they all were great. And then, great fresh coffee and desert. Over the top. One of the great restaurants in downtown Jax. It's right up there with Ruth's Chris and The Chop House. But significantly less $$.
Overall, a great dining expereince and one that we plan to repeat soon and often.
Thank you for making our "date night" very special.
Excellent as always! Everything was great. This place is always so consistent. One of my favorites. Get dessert even if you are full! The best!
Never disappointed when dining here. The menu is always special and it never gets old.
Poor table location right at the front, disinterested staff as we asked for bread and did not want alcohol on a busy Friday night. fried pompano ok, rather strong flavor never had before glad I tried it but would not have again. 8oz filet mignon, good.... Tasty desserts. Unfortunately not as good as last experience.
Food and service was great. Would like to see a little more variety on the menu. Very noisy!! Hard to have a nice dinner conversation
The food was fantastic, the flavors are indescribably good. The atmosphere was really noisy, especially on a tuesday night. Couldn't imagine how load it is on a Saturday. Overall I highly recommend the restuarunt!
What can I say.. great food, great deserts, good wine selection and great service! A great place to celebrate or take a client for dinner.
Date night for the hubby and me.We thought we would try B.B.'s since we hadn't eaten there in years. We quickly remembered why.
We ordered a simple hummus plate as our appetizer. It came with hummus, which was okay, Char grilled carrots,NO flavor at all, pita chips that were so greasy and over done I couldn't eat them, and finally pita bread slathered with so much crushed garlic I will never fear vampires again.
I ordered, for my entree', the grilled chicken with wasabi mashed potatoes and green beans.I figured it would be hard to mess up. It wasn't awful, but boring.My husband ordered the scallops over angel hair and he couldn't get half way through it because it was so salty.
Unfortunately, we won't be returning. Simple is always best. Complexity doesn't mean throwing in all the latest food fads in every dish.
Good Food. A little loud, but given the architecture and lay out it is to be expected. Very nice dining however.
A friend and I went for dinner and saw so many things on the menu that we wanted to try that we ended up doing 2 appetizers and sharing a pizza. Our server was very helpful in telling us about the various menu items. We ordered the Fried Green Tomatoes and the calamari. Both were exceptional and prepared In a unique way, which is always a pleasant surprise. The Truffle pizza was so tasty. If we had not been so full after that, we would have ordered one of their delicious cakes. Next time! Will definitely be back.
I was excited to eat here but there were flaws all around. Not a great first visit. I’ll just run through a few things. 1) I asked if I could order just vegetables but was told by our waiter that I could not order these because the kitchen said “no substitutions tonight” and “they were closed for the next couple nights so it must be because they are low on sides”. Well I had checked their website right before my reservation and it stated that the restaurant was in fact closed but the kitchen would be “open for take out and catering”. Very disappointed about this. 2) a bug was in my desert and our waiter made us feel as if I was being needy by asking for a new slice of cake. 3) $20 for one Irish coffee. Extremely excessive. 4) The halibut entree was over cooked and the potato side was under cooked. I expected way more from this restaurant. I was unfortunately disappointed with the service and food. This is my honest review and opinion.
The food was absolutely AMAZING! Kate was our waitress and so knowledgeable about the food.
Great drinks & food.
Friendly waitress, delicious food and dessert. Happy hour drinks and appetizers were a nice bonus.
We had appetizers, drinks & desserts & everything was delicious. We were not rushed. Wait staff/all staff excellent. Will return.
Excellent food and very consistent. Very noisy inside and hard to talk, but great food and desserts.
Our waitress Kelly was amazing and the food was the best I have had in a really long time! Can’t wait to go back!
Excellent food and service.
Food was amazing, but pricey. Noise level was louder than we would have liked, but only because patrons were having a fun time.
I loved the lamp chops. However I don't like my vegetables made into a puddle. The pureed sweet potatoes were tasteless. I'll be glad when this fad of reducing healthy vegetables into a puddle of tasteless and nutritionless food is over.
Food was delicious and came out fairly quickly. Server was amazing, always had a refill for our drinks as it was getting low, was always polite, help me navigate the menu with questions I had and what she thought o would like based on my tastes. She was perfect as well was the food.
My husband and I went to bbs for a late dinner after a show. We ordered a bottle of Rose (wine prices are very reasonable at bbs!), the turkey cobb salad, and the Asian Chop Chop salad. Chris provided excellent service throughout. bbs is one of our "go to" restaurants in the Jacksonville area for great food, wine, service and reasonable prices; we have never been disappointed.
The corvina special was awesome, and the service was and is always great.
Three of us went in for a late drink and dessert. We were given a full "tour" of the dessert offerings and were blown away by how delicious our selections were. I would like to go back and do dinner now, as this was my first time in. Quiet, ambient surroundings--excellent service.
always delightful. the food is so good Recommend to all
Always excellent food and service!
Amazing experience and great food as always.
Pre concert diner. Efficient service & good food & drinks
Great service. Great food. Great cake!!!!
Easy in and out.
We celebrated a birthday and it was a great experience.
Tried several things we never had before!!! Duck and truffle Mac!!! Amazing!!!also they had this wonderful tea infused vodka drink!!! Think Arnold Palmer with alcohol!!! Another fabulous night at bbs!!!
The way around - my guests had never been and they thought it was too loud-
Great place to dine. Nice vibe to the place. Great food, great service, and the assortment of desserts is to die for. My only issue, a minor one, is the tables seem to be a little too close together for my liking, however this will not stop me from coming back. The noise level was moderate but nothing that would make conversation difficult. It was a Saturday night after all.
