I would expect so much more for this restaurant. We were disappointed from the start. We tried to have a drink at the bar prior to being seated and were ignored for 10 minutes. The maitre'd did not say one word to us when we checked in to being seated. He just nodded and pointed to our table. The server was nice but not very attentive. The food was (for the most part) very good; however the steak came overdone, but noone came to follow up for 15 minutes. At that point, we were over it. Very disappointing.

One of the best bone-in filets. One of the worst bone-in rib steaks. Sides are lackluster. Dress up or Maitre D will make sure you feel uncomfortable. Maitre D does not treat you appropriately with service dog. Servers excellent.

Very disappointed in the overall experience. Food was subpar for the price point and not even a comparison to the other steak houses in the same price range. Was looking forward to a great dining experience and it fell short!

Pricey but food was good.. I was a little disappointed as our server was recommending steaks as "that's what we are best known for". We went for seafood and there was only one fresh catch seafood option. And I wanted the beet salad which they were out of. I would probably go back but not for seafood.

Loved it! Great restaurant and comparable to a NYC steak house. Excellent service without being stuffy. We went twice during the week we were on vacation, and the waiter from the first night remembered us. Steaks were all cooked perfectly. Ambience was just right now for a beach resort. It was very nice, but you don’t feel out of place if you’re not dressed up.

Another magnificent meal at jwb. I had the prime rib special and it was perfect. My wife had the lamb chops and they were excellent as well. I cannot recommend this restaurant any more highly.

Our server Patrick made the overall experience superb. The pumpkin soup was the best we have ever tasted. The prime steaks were so tender a steak knife was unnecessary. We would definitely return and try more of the amazing dishes. Good wine list from moderate prices to the very high-end Caymus Special Selection. Highly recommend.

If you are looking for an elegant place to have a nice quiet dinner, then this is your venue. I was disappointed with my entree, the seafood paella. The fish was overcooked and the mussels that were used to garnish the plate were dried out and almost invisible in the shells. One of the mussel shells used was cracked and did not contain any mussel within it. Not what I expected for a $48 selection. The night we dined, the restaurant was quite empty but we were surprised when our entrees were brought out to the table before our appetizer was finished. When our server saw that I did not finish even half of my paella, she did offer to bring me something else, but I am not the kind of person that likes to make a fuss, I just expected to enjoy what I had ordered. Oh well!

I made reservations a month ago and made sure to let them know that we were celebrating my Nephew's birthday. Although I did originally make reservations for 4 people, however changed it to 5 on the day of. I called to make sure that was not going to be a problem and was promised that a table for 5 would be available. I also made double sure to let them know we wanted my nephew to have a slice of cake so that we could sing him Happy Birthday. When we arrived, the Host took us to a table right in front of the bar, where there was loud music and no where near the restaurant. When I complained he stated that there were no tables for 5 people in the restaurant? The restaurant seemed empty and he continued to rudely insist that this was the only table available. We had to scream at each other because we could not hear each other talk. I had to remind the waitress about my Nephew's birthday and she quickly brought a quick slice of cake, out of nowhere, and we quickly sang Happy Birthday. It happened so fast I couldnt even film it. The bill was almost $400.00 and the food was good, but we wish we could have sat in the actual restaurant and not next to the entrance/bar and loud music.

The Food was oustanding - we all had steaks. They came out perfectly cooked and tons of flavor. Our waiter was attentive and even recognized my birthday without prompting. I would definitely recommend JWB in the future.

The food was okay, meaning we did not order main course just appetizers. The selection was okay as well as we observed the food coming out of the kitchen it was not visual appealing as the menu made it out to be. The person cooking the steaks must of been having a bad day as he was battling to keep the flames down from destroying the meat. We asked the waiter for the checking and a few moments later we walked by and basically tossed us the check with out say a word. We left and went to the Margaritaville Restaurant where we enjoyed much better food awesome waiters and a great time. We saw three couples eating or trying to get service at JWP Prime while we were there and when I approached them setting in the Margaritaville Restaurant they asked us how are food was as we all shared the same experience. By no means is this a high-end steak house, just look at some of the pictures online. I should have trusted my instincts. The rest of the resort was awesome.

Food was excellent, perfectly prepared. Waiter however seemed to be in a hurry for us to leave. Constantly asking us to remove items from the table even though we had not finished. Then asked us about desert while we were still eating our main course. Really pushed the coconut creme pie which was so-so. The constant rush was noticed by my guests as well. I wouldn’t say it ruined the dinner but did make it a bit unenjoyable.
