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.

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.

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.

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.

BB's is one of our favorites. The food is always outstanding. The daily specials are incredible and we love the option of the "daily menu" for something smaller or less expensive. Management clearly puts an emphasis on customer experience which is reflected in the great service we continue to receive.

Everything was good upon arrival. Nice staff, seated promptly. We began to browse the menu - lots to choose from. Once our server arrived, we were never told about any specials or asked if we had been there before, or told anything about the restaurant. So flying blind, most of our party had steak: My brother and son went with the 16oz ribeye, my wife the beef tenderloin, and I went with the bbq cheeks. Both ribeyes were good, but my wife’s steak had a strange taste: almost like it was sour. We called the server over to ask and she said the sauce they put over it gives it that flavor. My wife expresses that she was t sure the sauce we good and that the steak flavor wasn’t up to par. The servers response was: so you’re all done then and took the plate away. It could have been handled differently but my wife just decided to let it go. We won’t be back.

Absolutely love BBs restaurant. Been a favorite for many years. Started visiting while living in Indiana. Now we only live 1.5 hrs away and always eat here when shopping in town or close by. Food is always delicious and dessert is number 1. Service is great. We always tell family and friends. A must place to dine.
