Good food and service but priced at high end steakhouse. Just did not meet that mark, still very good.

Food was amazing the waiter asked my husband what he wanted on his salad thought it came with his surf and turf but no everything must be alacarte we were charged 10 extra for a salad we thought came with the meal and it was just a bland salad steak was amazing and lobster too

The majority of the food was great except for the evening’s special steak, the “Monaco” steak which was advertised as Wagyu beef. It was a 14 oz priced at $75. When it arrived the presentation matched expectation but when attempting to eat it, it failed to satisfy. I don’t believe it was Wagyu because it was tough and chewy even as ordered (medium rare).

Great food! Had Calamari as a starter with two delicious dips. Red Pepper and Lemon Aioli. The Calamari was fried just right. Then a great French Onion Soup. The main course of Surf and Turf was outstanding. The Steak was done perfectly and the Lobster was mouth watering. The only reason I did not give a five was for service and I’m being picky. They did not do a great job clearing dishes between courses. But that was minor compared to the other excellent service we received. Took two desserts to go. The Banana Cream Pie was disappointing. Had I not known we ordered Banana Cream Pie, I wouldn’t have guessed it was that. The Coconut Tres Leches was good. A great place to go when you want to celebrate or pamper yourself. It was pricy but worth every penny.

Clearly, JWB Prime Steak inside of Margaritaville Beach resort is a classic high end dining steakhouse. THE steakhouse in Hollywood Florida. The meats were all prepared to perfection. We enjoyed everything we ordered and the service is exteremly attentive. This is NOT a budget dining option, but if you want to celebrate an event, high end, this is the destination. Our dinner for 3 was $276 but the experience is memorable. Dress very smart casual, don't need suit and tie, but should reflect pride in fashion. The chef is to be commended for not overcomplicating the food, allowing it to reveal its natural flavor. Very memorable.

The food was very good. They had some trouble cooking a bone in filet, but they did a refire. I ordered medium rare and the first was 1/3 well done, 1/3 medium well/ medium, and 1/3 rare. The second steak was rare, but I ate it and it was delicious. I know that's a really tough steak to cook, but if it's on the menu, you should be able to cook it perfectly. I don't hate rare steak so the second steak was fine but it was not what I ordered. The entire wait staff is phenomenal. Our drinks stayed full the whole time. I would come back, but I would order the ribeye and not the bone in filet.

My wife and I have been going to JWB since they opened. I've always boasted that they have the best filet around. Not so this last visit - the steak was chewy. My wife ordered the chops that were great and the side dishes excellent as always. Hope this was just a fluke.

Our first time to JWB Prime Steak did not disappoint. We were seated promptly at arrival. Waiter was polite & courteous, made several recommendations which all were excellent. Our party had steaks & fish. Ribeye, fillet & salmon were cooked to perfection, Very Happy and would go again.

Another great meal at JWB. We brought friends who loved it. They shared the tomahawk steak and a salad and it was more than enough for both. I had the ribeye. Best steak around. My wife had a succi appetizer and it was almost a meal in itself. Clay was our waiter and he helped select the wine and was tremendous. A great time was had by all.

Another excellent meal at JWB. I had the lionfish special and it was outstanding. My wife and our guest both had the small filets and they were excellent as well. The service is top-notch and the Ambiance is very comfortable. How this restaurant is not at least a four Diamond establishment at AAA is a mystery to me.

My husband and I brought our grands 11 and 3yrs to their 1st upscale dining experience. They had a problem understanding the concept of indoor voices but Manny made us feel so comfortable. He explained the menu perfectly and made great suggestions. The boys go back home soon but I think they will remember the experience and the Crab Legs!!! Thanks

Side dish of roasted potatoes included exactly one and a half of a fingerling potato. Should of took a photo it was so laughable. Guess JWB cannot afford to be generous even with cheap potatoes.

We spent 4th Of July evening at JWB ... we have been there 3 times and has been always good. This time we didn’t feel comfortable about the hostess service. He wasn’t nice as normal, he asked us to wait because my husband and son were 5 seconds behind us ... walking down the hallway to meet us ... he also gave us a table right in front of the entrance which wasn’t nice at all.
