BB's always has great food and dessert
The food was terrific and the service impeccable. The desserts are fabulous and they always have seasonal items. Worth the trip every time.
Great salad (warm goat cheese), great entree (port loin), mediocre dessert (coconut cake). Both salad and entree were exceptional, but for the poor excuse for coconut cake I would rate BB's higher.
We had never tried this place but decided to give it a shot as it was close to San Marco. Our server was an absolute pro, and the food was good, too. The polenta appetizer with blue cheese could almost have sufficed as our meal. My wife enjoyed her chicken chop-chop salad, and I liked my salmon salad. We skipped dessert, too stuffed! My only misgiving from this place was being able to smell the smoke from the kitchen. It wasn’t overwhelming but that’s a pet peeve of mine.
I was disappointed as we felt the food was substandard. I wish restaurants in Jacksonville would employ real chefs who know food quality. Someone needs to get in that kitchen & teach cooking. Unfortunately, the restaurants in Jax can get away with not providing superior food as most people here seem to accept that. I am from New Orleans where take pride in delivering great food.
Always the best, flavorful, relaxing.
Amazing! Come for the food and wine, stay for their desserts! Must try the desserts!!!
Food was delicious and nice presentation.
I enjoy the food and the atmosphere every time I go to BB's. The servers are patient and helpful, and get the food out to you quickly. My food is always hot and fresh when it comes to the table. I have recommended BB's to several people.
Favorite place in town!!
This was our second trip to BB's. We had lunch on a Saturday and it was wonderful. I had a salad with goat cheese, prosciutto and figs and my husband had a chicken sandwich of some kind. Both entrees were delicious. For dessert (we took it with us) we got one piece of the Orange Grand Marnier cake and one piece of a White Chocolate cake with raspberry filling (the bottom layer was cheesecake!). The desserts are second to none, truly amazing. We had a great server. We will continue to come back every time we're in Jacksonville!
Recommend the calamari with it's slight cury taste! Staff was accommodating when I turned the table sideways to sit next to my date rather than across from her.
My friend and I love bb's and try to go there several times a month. The food is consistently excellent with wonderful servers
One of my favorite places downtown. Yummy food and delicious deserts
BB's lived up to its Yelp ratings. Inventive menu with wide variety of choices : fish, pork chicken beef, lamb and vegetarian options. I liked that each of the mains had a recommendation for a wine pair by the glass. Reasonably priced and excellent food.
Excellent food - all 6 guests were very pleased. Restaurant is cramped and crowded. Extremely loud. Hard to talk at table of 6. Again, food was excellent and reasonably priced.
We love b.b.’s. Every single visit exceeds our expectations.
My good friend and I meet at bb's once a month for lunch (middle ground--I from the Westside and she from the Southside) and have for many, many years. Not an exaggeration to say "a decade." I never leave bb's disappointed. The food is always excellent. The atmosphere is pleasant and inviting. The restaurant is attractive and pristine. There is no place in Jacksonville I would rather eat.
Always pleasant dining experience for work our pleasure
Our favorite pre show restaurant. Just wish the never ending construction and bridge and road closings would be over. Makes it so difficult. Would go to Jax and BB's more if only
I thought the food was good, but not outstanding. I'm visiting from out of state and went based on the Open Table reviews. It was not nearly as good as other 4.7 rated places I have been. Service was very good.
Food was very good. I had not been here in a few years so it was nice to see it had not changed. One of Jax's better restaurants! Good wine list and the bar tender made one of the best Old Fashioned I'd had in a while!
Arrived early, seated immediately. Server suggested the lamb and the flounder which we ordered and they both were both delicious. Dessert of the white chocolate cheese cake which never disappoints.
Went here for lunch with a buddy. He had the caeser salad with blackened salmon. I had the tmb pizza. They serve real blackened fish here - perfect. For my pizza, it was crispy crust and filled with flavor. The service was professional and outstanding. For a treat, make sure you eat outside on a beautiful day. For us, it was 73 degrees, low humidity, Friday early afternoon. Highly recommended and will return.
i simply enjoy dining at bb's. food always good, and service is always excellent. as a result, i rarely see the prices
Unfortunately, it was not made clear that there was a special valentines menu! I couldn’t eat anything off of the menu either! So after being really excited for this booking made well in advance, my wife and I ended up having to leave to go somewhere else. I will be excited to try their normal menu some day...just a little embarrassed to go back.
Enjoyed our dinner at BB's this week, from the time we walked in the door till we left - full and satisfied. We were given a table for two in a quiet corner, and started with craft cocktails from the menu, followed by scallop ceviche and fried green tomato BLT - each was flavorful and a good sized appetizer. After a cup of the tomato bisque soup, for entrees, the coffee rubbed Duroc loin - with gnocchi and haricot verts with pork belly pieces was tender, juicy and a perfect mesh of flavors. The white truffle pizza with garlic was enough for two, and a great meal, well served. BB's takes extra steps with everything in the restaurant and on the menu, and we enjoy going back.
The stuffed burrata appetizer is a great way to kick off a memorable evening. Excellent wines by the glass at very reasonable prices (all under $13 pg).
So glad we made reservations; this was a busy spot on Saturday night. The waitress was friendly and helpful. Lots of food choices and the food was great. Will definitely be back.
Bland entrees and food temperature was lukewarm at best. Sticky rice was oily and inedible.... someone who never leaves food behind took one bite and left it. Great service and decent dessert.
The food was very good as were the drinks and dessert. We had an early reservation (530 pm). It would have been nice had we not been seated right between two other parties so tightly when the entire rest of the restaurant was empty. I understand the logistics of trying to keep the area close so the servers are not having to traverse the entire floor plan, however, the restaurant was beginning to fill and we felt as though it was difficult to have a nice conversation when the next table over was only 2 and a half feet away in any direction with patrons and the rest of the place was empty.
Food took a really long time bc they gave my pizza to the table next to us and, unfortunately, that table inspected and picked the ingredients off the pizza. So they had to start from scratch.
On the plus side, they did comp my meal, but it would have been nice to eat with the rest of my party.
Otherwise, great food and atmosphere!
Food was great. Duck Wonton is delicious. Service was great.
Always outstanding, just keep in mind that the place is noisy.
Otherwise Service and food great,
Excellent hostess, fantastic server, great food and awesome deserts. We were there for a special occasion and they made it very special. We will be back!
Food is always great, both the meals and desert are outstanding. I like that they have some lighter and lower cost meals available for dinner.
Wonderful food - those polenta styxx!!!!! Service was expedient and friendly.
Brianna was great, our table was a bit crazy and she was super.
Fabulous as always. We have reservations again on Friday with our friends.
Great first visit! We had an excellent server, Mark, who was very knowledgeable of the menu items. I had the Jimbalaya which was very good but very rich. My boyfriend had the Duck which he enjoyed very much! I would recommend for any special occassion
