We dine at JWB fairly frequently, so for us it seemed a good choice for a birthday dinner. We were surprised last night that the food was not what we have become accustomed to receiving. The cooks on steaks were not quite right and then rushed to correct, scallops were gritty pointing to a rushed cleaning job, and the brussel sprouts were bitter. The service was still great but for the appetizer to have been the star of the meal should not have been the case.

James is by far the best you could ever have. Ask for him if you want a true dining experience made for a foodie!

It was ok. I wanted to do something special and have the table decorated when we came in but they told me no because it would be so packed we would be waiting for our table; however, when we actually got there there were quite a few empty tables so my request could have been honored. Also, they were handing out roses to all the couples for Valentines but we didn’t get one and I don’t know if it’s because the reservation was in my name and not my husband’s. We do live in 2020 and women do plan valentines sometimes. Those were small qualms though. Overall I loved it and my server was super personable and made my first time dining there really great!

Very special Valentine's Day dinner. I had the veal chop and my wife had the Chilean sea bass. Both were cooked to perfection. The service was exquisite and the special raspberry chocolate dessert put the perfect ending on a perfect evening.

The dinning area was beautiful, clean, and very pleasant. The service was first rate. The waiters were very attentive. The food was excellent. The only problem I have is with the bar. When we arrived the bar was full so we took a seat at a table. The bar person cleared the table but did not knowledge us. We sat for 5 minutes. No one came over to take our drink order. If there is no table service, the hostess should tell you . If I wasn't having dinner, I would have left. We finally got a seat at the bar and were served. The drinks were great. We were not asked if we wanted a second drink. I put a hundred dollar bill on the bar to pay, and again we were ignored. I had to ask the bartender to cash me out. You need to hire some professional bartenders. This establishment is to nice to have second rate service.

From the minute we walk in the door the service was top notch. The server was knowledgeable, curdiest kind, funny and just awesome. The bread was hot and delicious. The steak was cooked to perfection and tasted amazing. The lobster potatoes were also amazing. Can’t say enough about this restaurant, it’s service and food. Will certainly be back!!

Food was not worth the price. Steaks were good but nothing special. Waiter was very nice but service was extremely slow. Took over 30 minutes for coconut cream pie to be brought out. I think there are much better options around for the price.

We didn't have a great time here. The food, service and overall experience was mediocre. Our stone crab appetizer was great, but the entrees were bland, over cooked, and tasted like frozen bar food. They gave us a really bad table in the back of the restaurant too. Thanks.

Food was fantastic and the servers were nice however the manager was rude. We were staying at the hotel and wanted to dine with our children and we definitely got the drift we didn’t like we had our children. Our kids didn’t make a peep during dinner and were well behaved. I was informed the hotel is family friendly so I thought all the restaurants were too.

We first tried JWB prime steak and seafood a few years ago and I was underwhelmed. We decided to give them a second try and we were pleasantly surprised. The food was spectacular, the service was first rate (Clay was our waiter) and we left thoroughly satisfied and knowing that we would be back. We each had a different cut of steak (my wife surprised me as she is typically a seafood fan), split a Caesar salad, a creamed spinach side and a key lime pie desert. A couple of cocktails and a couple of glasses of wine later, the bill was expensive but not outrageous and definitely worth the money. Complimentary valet parking (with validation) is definitely a plus in this neighborhood. Very nice experience overall.

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.
