Our server was fabulous! She was fast, knowledgeable, and such a sweet heart. I didn’t like a drink and I never send a drink back because I feel terrible doing so but without hesitation she took it back and got my something else. Her recommendation was perfect. Food is always incredible!

Great food, great service, parking is a nightmare. If valet is open, then it's no problem. Problem is that valet is hit or miss. If it's closed you're stuck with street parking. drove around for 15 minutes and found nothing.

Great food, and met the executive chef/new front of house person and gave him feedback on the new menu for restaurant week - because it was awesome! But they asked, so we shared our gentle thoughts around improvement. And it was my birthday, too, and thy were so sweet about it. And COOL lights on the table. Just loved it.

It had been 2 years since we visited this restaurant and there was much change. I made a reservation for an outside table and yet when we arrived (and for the next 30 minutes) there was no outside table available. The food was mediocre, the choices very limited, and the noise level was so high that we couldn't carry on a conversation. I won't go back.

The food was fantastic, but the service was slow. We visited twice for dinner during the past week (both on weekdays), and there were big gaps of time between starters and mains.

When we arrived at the parking lot, we were told the Valet parking was closed. That would have been good to know in advance. We have dined at JRDN many times prior and had no trouble with the parking. Finding parking during Spring Break weekend was a mess! We were seated outdoors, although the tables were not 6 ft apart. I didn't feel safe during dining. My hamburger was loaded with salt. Our server was pleasant but she had way too many tables to serve. Not sure we'll be back any time soon.

What a great experience at JRDN! My guest and I sat on the patio all afternoon drinking wine and people watching. We had an amazing server (shout out to Arnold) who took great care of us and was super attentive. Our brunch was amazing and the ambiance can't be beat. If you have a guest in town, be sure to make a rez here and relax on the patio, you won't be disappointed.

GRÉÂT service. Our servers were cheerful, fun, very efficient ..
Everyone was fabulous. And , at the end,someone who appeared to be a manager cheerfully asked us how our brunch was!
We had a beautiful outside table tucked in the corner and it was perfect. Outstanding brunch food.
Can’t wait to go back!

Service was extraordinarily slow, requested water three times. Need a reservation week in advance, requested a table glass side ocean view was told that they were reserved for parties of four yet they sat three other parties of two. Super slow service ate dinner with no drinks / cocktails. .So disappointing would not recommend. Discriminatory.

I have been passing by this restaurant for over a decade, whenever I take a stroll on the boardwalk. A couple of my friends were in town for the weekend and wanted to meet me for drinks. I really wanted to show them PB. I also had to bring my kid, so the usual PB bars and taverns were out of the question. I also knew better about trying to find a good spot in PB on a Friday night. So I decided to get reservations for outdoor dining at the JRDN. I always wanted to check it out. I always found the ambience at night to be alluring. My friends, kid and I made it to our reservation. We were instantly seated. The service was excellent. The food was amazing. I loved the drinks. I had a Raspberry Dreaming and a Chili Mango Margarita. Both drinks were pretty and tasty. The ambience inside is even better than I imagined. Getting out with friends after a year of the pandemic reminded me of the magic of dining. When I got the check, I expected some serious damage. But the damage was not too bad. Even with a 20 percent tip. My friends loved PB and decided to go back the following day.

The location here is fantastic, write on the boardwalk near the beach. The blackened salmon sandwich is amazing; the salmon filet is huge, that seasoning if perfect and the toppings add exactly what is needed. I will definitely be back for this many times.

Since my wife and I dined here two times in two days, I guess we enjoyed ourselves. Food was fantastic and the portions were extremely generous, so much so we had to pass on dessert the first night we dined there. So we came back just for the multi-layer carrot cake, which was other-worldly. And the service was top-notch, not complaining about the impact of Covid on their business(like a lot of places do). Will be back upon our next trip to PB.
