Ordered 2 steaks with a lobster tail, au gratin potatoes and asparagus. All cooked to perfection! We enjoyed our 26th anniversary dinner in style! One regret-We were not able to try every item on the menu. We will for sure be back.

Staying at the resort and looked forward to a nice dinner. However, I ordered the fish special and it was very dry. The waiter told the chef and apparently he didn’t care as the waiter never returned. Costly dinner when you can only eat half because the rest was too dry.

The food was amazing! The lump crab in the crab cakes and the Oscar steak topping were so big! Our steaks were cooked perfectly, the mashed potatoes were the creamiest I think I’ve ever had. And our server Clay was awesome!

The steaks were high quality. But handled badly by the cooks.
The staff were great. The ambiance is too dark. The brussel sprouts were too vinegary. Steaks too salty. The web site offers happy hour pricing but the restaurant doesn't honor the 1/2 price drinks. It's a shame the simple things that can overshadow the whole event!

i purchsed the 3 course CRAVE menu for restaurant month. this included the rhode island calamari, the steak au poivre, and the chocolate cake options. the menu online said the steak au poivre was using tenderloin medallions, but i was wowed by the large slab of prime filet they served me. it was very similar to what the pros do all day long at le relais de venise, calling it steak frites. a glass of italian arcanum wine paired excellently.
i most certainly am drooling over returning to eat here again. my only complaint was the valet was too slow. they do validate.

We brought a couple with us who had not been to JWB before (we are regulars). They loved it, stating that the Caesar salad was excellent, the steaks were perfectly prepared, and the quality of the meal was top notch. We simply have not had a bad meal there and highly recommend this restaurant to all of our friends.

The moment the food arrived a funny smell like something spoiled cut my attention. I smelled the steak, Shrimp and the order of scallops. Was not able to pin point the source. Meat do not smell that way but sea food may if not fresh. Drank some water and it hit me again so i cut open the scallops and that what it was, spoiled scallops. Later the chef confirmed they were not fresh. Even do i did not get charged for the scallops from an upscale and pricey restaurant you would have expected food to be perfect.

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.
