    We had not been in a long time and just had returned home after the holidays and wanted somewhere near my mom’s to eat. Service was ok, we had Tom a long time ago as a waiter and while very nice, we were left waiting and wondering where he was a few times. The food was good but has become even more expensive than when we had dined there last which was almost 6 years ago!! Very cold inside and the prices are very high with entrees in the $55 and up and add ons being the price of a $$$ restaurant ($30-50)!! Making JWB $$$$-$$$$$!! Even Council Oak at the Hard Rock is less expensive! A La cart veggies started at $22! Very expensive and the food was ok. Not spectacular. We won’t be back any time soon.

    Thanksgiving 2022 2 in our party chose the beef filet. They were perfect! 1 chose the paella, it had an odor that all I can describe as the smell of horse. I don’t recommend that. The staff was awesome!

    At our table we ordered lobster bisque, fried oysters, steak (filet), "table-size" sides of macaroni (shells) & cheese plus creamed spinach. Every bite was perfection. The steak was perfectly cooked. The oysters were exceptional with a touch of spice. My only suggestion would be that the portions are so large as to be intimidating and somewhat wasteful. Smaller portions (smaller prices) would really allow the diner to enjoy every course. For example, the ribeye steak is 22 ounces and the filet is 8 ounces. We did not order dessert because we were just too full.

    I had an incredibly underwhelming experience at JWB. Our round of cocktails did not arrive until after our appetizers were already finished. Adding to the oversight was that one cocktail was incorrect completely, by the time that arrived for the odd person out it was well after 20 minutes from original order time. The chocolate desert cake was stale and bland, so we sent it back. They allowed us to try a different desert, but to send out stale food at these prices is unacceptable. Neither the late incorrect drink or the stale cake was comped, which any high quality restaurant would have done without hesitation to make it right. The food was good, however for the prices I expect good service and quality on all levels. As a local, I will pick other options that are not subpar.

    We sent back the steak tartare because it tasted bland & over blended with mayonnaise. The bone in fillet was a disappointment as well. We had the roasted chicken which turned out to be a small piece of chicken breast at 38.00. The biggest disappointment was the service during dinner!

    The food was absolutely delicious. We had a center cut filet, wagyu short ribs, au gratin potatoes for dinner. One of their signature drinks, basically a pineapple mojito was worth every penny. Our server, Clement, was fabulous. He engaged but kept distance and definitely kept us laughing all night.

    We have been to JWB previously and had great experiences. Last night was not up to our standards. We put on our reservation that we were celebrating a birthday, which was never brought up. Our server seemed like he didn’t want to be there, much less wait on our table. While tables around us were getting all the details on all the special cuts, we did not. The bottle of wine we wanted was out of stock, and it took about 15-20 minutes for our server to relay that to us. Then we ordered a cocktail, which took about another 15-20 minutes to reach our table. An hour had passed before receiving our drinks since we sat down. Mind you, there were about 5 tables total in the restaurant- a very slow night. The food was excellent, once we finally received it. Service was very poor overall, but we did enjoy the food. Compliments to the chef, but not our waiter. We will definitely explore other options for dinner reservations on our next visit.

    Our server was attentive and entertaining. He gets an a+. The au gratins we ordered were cold. We complained. We were brought a new order of au gratins. Believe it or not-still cold. But we didn't say anything. Fire whoever is in charge of au gratins in the kitchen. Also, I ordered the Thai scallops. I received three. They were good but this is a complete rip off. The ambiance of the restaurant is very nice. Everything is clean. The seating is beautiful. The noise level of the music was perfect.

    Anniversary Disappointed I text the restaurant twice through my online reservation to ask about what our options were for celebrating a first anniversary. Restaurant never replied to my text. Our friends that accompanied us went to this restaurant on their honeymoon and hoped to revisit the experience. I personally stopped at the restaurant and spoke to the host and hostess the day of my reservation. They confirmed with me that they celebrate birthdays and anniversaries with a lava cake. I appreciated this very much. They assured me it is noted on our reservation. At the end of dinner the waiter brought the check. No mention of the anniversary. My husband had to remind him in front of our friends. The moment was lost at that point. No apology. The waiter told us to hold the check and our friends did get to enjoy the dessert. Just disappointed the way the communication was handled.

    Honestly, I eat at a lot of Steak Houses..In Ft Lauderdale I love Steak 954...In Pittsburgh, Ruths Chris, Eddie V's, Capitol Grille...In Daytona...Hyde Park...The steak at JWB Prime was actually on par with Outback...We met a couple from Jacksonville there before going to Stars and Strings...He was complaining about pricing earlier in the day...I told him it would be great....I was wrong...The Creamed Spinach and the Key Lime Pie was very very good. The Filet, honestly was on par with Outback...yep...Outback....Not for $62....Our server, Shy was her name was great and so friendly...I would not go back there for dinner for sure

    We were surprisingly disappointed. This restaurant was amazingly average - the quality of the food did not equate to the high prices. overpriced based on the quality of food. We made these reservations during our stay at the boat show based on the published ratings. Fortunately, we had excellent delicious meals at Billy’s Stone Crabs and the Capital Grille in Fort Lauderdale.

    This has become a regular place for us. Like Margaritaville and love this restaurant. Beet salad is amazing. Lobster bisque is delicious with out being heavy with cream. Onion soup and Mac and cheese delicious. Steak is probably the best I’ve had. And it is close to home. Loren is very attentive and we’ve enjoy several of the waitstaff. Cocktails top notch too…

    Overpriced tourist trap. Find something else in the area where you can get your money's worth. We're use to eating a nice restaurants but this was ridiculous in price & value. Not only is the food ridiculously priced everything's ala carte. Also, you're dining on the beach but no oceanviews in the entire restaurant

    First and last time at JWB. I was looking forward to the King Crab legs; didn't see it on the menu and thought the restaurant wasn't offering them. Waiter never provided specials. After we ordered; I hear another waiter telling another table all the specials and King Crab legs were available! When I asked my waiter; he said he didn't know they had them. Needless to say, I was very disappointed. The Paella was mediocre and not my intended choice.
