The food was good. Nice atmosphere. The restaurant was full on a Tuesday evening. It was very noisy. If you're meeting someone don't expect to have a quiet conversation. Parking is available.

The service was awesome, they were around but not always interrupting your dinner. The food was out of this world and my steak perfectly cooked to temp. The dessert selection was the toughest, too many good choices to choose from. Overall we enjoyed ourselves and will be returning soon.

We were meeting family there for dinner before a concert. Unfortunately we were running very late from St. Augustine but they seated them. We pulled the menu up on line, text them and they ordered for us. Worked out great and the meal arrived about 10 minutes after we did. It was perfect and kept us all on time. Great waiter to boot. We have dined here numerous times and have always been pleased.

Absolutely amazing!! The best dessert's in Jacksonville, if not the entire Northeast Florida. The service is top notch, the steaks are delicious, and the beverages are delicious. It's a great spot even if just for a dessert night out with drinks or coffee.

The food and service here are always outstanding. The pork cheeks were tender as butter, and my wife’s halibut was delicious. The noise level is high, however, so if it’s an intimate evening your looking for this might not be the place.

Kate, our waitress, was simply outstanding. Knowledgeable, efficient, unobtrusive and helpful. Parmesan crusted halibut and prime ribeye were exceptional entrees. Have dined upon multiple occasions at BB’s but this was the best!

The food is good, it’s just so loud that we couldn’t even have a conversation. There were 6 of us at a round table in the center of the restaurant and we could only talk to the people seated next to us.

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.
