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.

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.

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).

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!

The seating is a little cramped, but everyone is friendly. The food is always excellent. Wait staff is more than willing to accomodate special requests. The cheese plate is very good. Save room for dessert, as there is a large selections of cakes. The serving size is enough for two, and is quite delicious, regardless of which cake you order. Service is very good.

We arrived early and were promptly seated. We ordered appetizers and after they came placed our order. We were going to the symphony and our food was a little slow coming. But the food was wonderful and our waitress brought our bill very quickly so we made it to the concert in a timely fashion.
