As always the food was excellent we had the shrimp special over fettuccine with garlic sauce The best we’ve had in ages. Our server Gina goes above and beyond to meet any special requests food substitutions etc. a rarity amongst too many servers today. Can’t wait for my next trip to JAX just to go to Dwight’s

The food is always consistent at Dwight's. Our service was excellent, however we waited quite awhile to place our order. There isn't tons of ambience but you can count on the food being very good.

Our dinner experience at the chef's bar was our absolute favorite! Gary provided the most cordial, informative and professional service. Watching the dynamics of chef Dwight and his team was a privilege. This operation is a work of art.

The scallop appetizer was divine. Equally loved our entrees: seared sea bass and veal piccata. The hand crafted ravioli was simply delicious. We cannot WAIT to make our next reservation at Dwight's!

Never disappoints!! And always accommodating! Five stars all around! Katie the owners wife gives the best service! Even brought a piece of her homemade cake that they don’t serve in the restaurant for us a try. And gave us all a hug before leaving! Top notch!!

Dwight's is a long time pillar of dining in the Jax Beach area. Quaint and fun, Dwight serves a consistent crowd night after night. The dinners are good quality and the service is personable and great. The darling of the show is the pasta but the restaurant also serves land and sea fare. While an enjoyable experience, I find the food and drink to not quite live up to the prices.

Phenomenal !!!
My second time there and it was another huge hit. We had the sea bass which is amazing. However, i personally ordered the bone in pork chop. I haven’t had a pork chop in years and this one was the best I’ve ever had. It was perfectly cooked and even the carrots and asparagus was perfectly done. The service was spot on as well . I will definitely be going back again

Chilean Sea Bass was outstanding!!! Hubby got pork chop which was as big as a tomahawk steak and so he had leftovers. Don't really care for the corn cob but the carrots were outstanding. Servers recommendation on the bottle of wine was a hit as well.

The service was fantastic! Our server was friendly and knowledgeable. Recommended great dishes and good wine. The ambiance is beautiful. There is always something interesting to look at; from the wine cork design strategically placed to keep noise level to a minimal to the beautiful mosaic art on the wall. We will definitely be returning!

I love to sit at the chefs table (the bar) and watch Dwight (and Brandon) cook. Their food is always excellent and fresh (just a small ice cream freezer on premise). The sea bass was amazing. Simple preparation, fresh fish, perfect cook time. It’s all pretty much just like that. Great ambiance, too. A real gem.

If you beat me there, go for the Pork Chop, it was tender, juicy and flavorful.

This was our second experience with Dwight’s, which is an area favorite. I’m not able to click with this place, despite a small but highly attentive and capable waitstaff, the kitchen is the big variable; a pork chop Milano was excellent but the carbonara, ravioli and salads were unsatisfactory... the weakest carbonara I’ve ever had. Deserts were good, and wine list was just ok and overpriced. The waitstaff and pork chops made the evening.
