Had a wonderful date night dinner with my girlfriend. Ordered the bone in filet done medium at it was perfectly cooked. Large portion sizes for the sides. Food was excellent but the attention was even better. Attention was prompt but not overbearing. Will definitely be back when craving a good steak in an easy going relaxed environment that still maintains an upscale feel.

Top notch steakhouse! First class as was everything at the Margaritaville Resort! I had Surf and Turf and my wife had the Red King Crab Legs. My lobster tail was the best I have enjoyed...meaty and sweet...My wife said the crab was the best she had ever eaten. Restaurant is a little pricey, but worth every penny if you're staying at the resort or in the area!

I have to say this experience was unfortunately way different than our experience from 1 month ago. The ribeye steaks were not quality meat and not cooked to perfection like they were a month ago. It was my husbands birthday dinner on 9/19 and we were a party of 10. We had raced about JWB so much and cool don’t wait to have our dear friends experience what we experienced a month ago. Unfortunately we were quite embarrassed about the meals AND to have to pay top dollar for a subpar meal was frustrating to say the least! We had planned to go back again in October for my birthday but sadly we won’t be back. They incorrectly cooked my husband’s steak THREE times!! The manager was less than sympathetic and didn’t have time to hear my concerns. Very very disappointed and we won’t be back. Such a shame. We are mortified by how different/horrible of an experience we had this time compared to our delightful experience just 1 month prior. My filet was fine but something was very different with the ribeye this time. Our friends said it seemed like a cheap cut of meat - that just wasn’t the case 1 month prior. We were so pleased 1 month ago that we asked to meet the chef! We learned there was a different chef there this time as well and he tried to argue with us about how the Tomahawk was cooked!! Yes, we ordered the $120 steak!! Still am not over the embarrassment & disappointment of our birthday visit. My poor husband ended up eating mashed potatoes as his birthday dinner!!!

Had a very enjoyable Friday evening dinner at JWB. My wire had their price fixe meal and I had the bone-in ribeye (it was huge). Service was impeccable. Truly enjoyed the visit. Highly recommend this restaurant to all.

We were so looking forward to eating here. We made a reservation and table was ready when we arrived. Music was too loud so we had a difficult time hearing server. Food tasted very good but was served barely warm. Steak was cooked exactly how we liked it just not hot. Both the potatoes and creamed spinach tasted good but not hot. Disappointed since we paid over $130. Probably would’ve given 5 stars if they only gave us our food hot.

While the food and service were both good, the pricing was out of line. Also, we had to use public parking, and while we were able to take the elevator from the parking garage into the hotel where JWB is located, we were NOT able to take the elevator FROM the hotel back up to the parking garage upon leaving. We had to go outside, around the building and wait in line with a lot of people for the public garage elevators. We will not patronize this restaurant again.

The food was good. Staff very nice - nothing exceptional, but a nice night overall. Since Covid, there no valet, so finding parking is a bit difficult in the garage and when leaving the garage the cars are backed up. I'm sure that will change when things get back to normal.

The total experience was outstanding. We are locals so we didn’t know whether it would be just another resort restaurant or something special. It is special. We had to Self park in the parking garage because the valet was closed due to the pandemic. We arrived and was quickly brought to our table. Our Waiter, Patrick took our drink and appetizer choice and bread was delivered. The bread had a rosemary butter that was great. We ordered the fried oysters which were delicious. The Caesar salad was also great. Our main courses, the bone in rib eye and the red king crab claws were great. The steak was cooked to perfection and the crab claws were cut so it wasn’t a fight to get to the meat. It was a great dining experience. We were also able to take the hotel’s elevator to the our garage floor. We were also given instructions avoid the parking fee. It was all a great experience and we will return.

Another excellent meal at JWB. My only regret is that they had just run out of the special porterhouse as I was ordering it. This means I'll have to keep coming back to try it. The service was, as usual, perfect. Social distancing was enforced throughout the hotel and we were able to take a nice stroll on the beach after the meal. We heartily recommend this restaurant.

The chicken was over done. Rubbery. The waiter told me it was the best chicken dish in any restaurant. It wasn’t edible. Everyone else at our table liked their entrees. The Mac and Cheese was amazing. The french onion soup. Fantastic. The food took a while to get to us. Seemed like people arriving after us got their food before us. Waiter blamed on chicken but it started slow from appetizers on. Banana cream pie wasn’t fantastic. Weird consistency but the key lime was spot on.

Went to celebrate a 16th birthday. Very disappointed in the server Pat who seemed to rushed to check on us and was sarcastic when we asked questions regarding the menu. Limited non-alcoholic drink choices( don’t even have tea). Limited salad dressing choices(no ranch or honey mustard) Took over an hour to receive an entree of steak and lobster. Filet was dry and lobster was tough. Will say lobster bisque was good and crab cake app was good. 16th birthday was not acknowledged even though saw others being treated with cakes at their tables. Would recommend spending your money down the street at Billie’s Stonecrab.

Our waiter was in on point with our drinks, making sure we always had a full glass of water or needed another alcoholic beverage. The food came out hot and perfect by our standards. The steak my husband order, medium rare, came out perfectly cooked. I ordered the chicken and again, it was probably the best chicken I’ve ever had. As we were awaiting the bill they surprised us with a complimentary anniversary desert as we were celebrating our 5 year anniversary. We would dine again with JWB Steak & Seafood and thank you for making us feel special on such occasion!

Another fantastic meal at JWB. My wife had the grouper special and she loved it. I had the twin lobster tails, perfectly prepared. Socially distant tables with impeccable service. Glad its back open, can't wait to go back.

My husband and I went to dinner at JWB Prime Steak on Saturday, July 11, 2020. We arrived at about 8:30PM. We have never experienced a more unpleasant dining experience. A woman, who may have been one of the managers, came to our table to warn us and scold us because we had not ordered our entree yet at 9:05pm. We had already ordered our appetizers and cocktails and we were enjoying them while we decided on the entrees. This woman very rudely stated “whether or not you’re still eating at 10 o’clock we will have to tell you to leave, that is the law!” Her statement was not only rude, it was actually inaccurate because the night before we had dinner at GG’s Waterfront, which is down the street and they told us as long as were there before 10:00PM we could stay until we finished our dinner without any pressure. Restaurants in Broward County are required to close to new customers at 10:00pm, not to those still having dinner! After this woman’s rude and unprofessional treatment we decided that we would not want to spend one more cent at this restaurant and we asked to close out our check at that time. It was our first time visiting this restaurant and she made our experience awful. Not to mention, we were trying to celebrate my birthday, and she completely ruined it for us. I feel sorry for the waiter who lost a potentially large tip because of the treatment we received from this woman. We were made to feel so unwanted and so uncomfortable by her that we could not stand another moment there. This is the kind of staff you have working in your restaurant, especially now that you need customers?! This woman should not be working at a McDonald’s, let alone at an upscale restaurant such as this.

The food wasn’t bad just slightly bland. Definitely overpriced for what you were getting. The restaurant itself is very nice and the service was good. But if we compared it to Billy’s it was not better. Billy’s food and service were awesome and pricing was much better. Also beautiful intercoastal view. The convenience of JWB was that we didn’t have to leave the hotel only run downstairs which was nice since it was raining.
