    Decided to eat in Margaritaville on the last night of our stay… It was amazing Tommy our server was great..love The Bronx accent. It may be a little fancy for the kids but otherwise everything was perfect…! Highly recommend the lamb chops (they are bigger than you think), the fillet and the Australian ribeye special…!!!

    Overall a lovely atmosphere. Staff was kind and worked to make a great experience. Service was slow. We were having a wonderful time non the less with friends. Biggest disappointment was the $135.00 Tomahawk Steak, the 8 oz Filet ($60.00) and the Fresh Catch ($62.00) all arrived the table room temp. The Tomahawk Steak presentation on a "skillet" and large tray was almost comical- as the "skillet" was not hot. The Tomahawk was simply sitting on the iron skillet that was room temp. Even when we asked casually what was the purpose of the iron skillet- there was no reply. All in all we had a great night re- connecting with our friends. But Sadly we will not have JWB Prime Steak and Seafood on our list of locations to dine here in the Miami area.

    We went for the Prime Rib special on Sunday. The hostess was incredibly friendly and sat us at a nice round table in the corner. This was the last good thing to say about this place. It then became the Bait and Switch operation. We ordered cocktails. I ordered the house martini which is made with Belvedere vodka. 15 minutes after we placed our order my husband’s drink came and I was told that they had no more Belvedere vodka and couldn’t make my drink. Since my husband had his drink, I ordered a glass of wine (no long wait time) so we could enjoy our cocktails together. We then placed our order and minutes later learned that they had no more Prime Rib (at 6:15). Everything else was way overpriced for the quality of the restaurant so I had a shrimp cocktail and Caesar salad. The service was just okay - I can’t stand restaurants where the waitstaff has that false air of superiority and treats you like you don’t belong.The food was just barely tolerable. The shrimp cocktail was horrible. My husband’s steak was an awful cut of beef- definitely not prime or choice. Stay away is all I can say.

    Great restaurant with superior quality food. Very pricey but the quality can’t be beat. Center cut filet was extremely tender and the sauces were a nice addition. Beautiful atmosphere is conducive to any celebration.

    Wagyu was overseasoned-couldnt eat $150 steak! Asparagus tasted like cooking fuel from grill. Creamed spinach was watery and flat. Mac and cheese tasted like flour. Deviled eggs were ok but too much mustard. Lobster bisque had good chunks of lobster but bisque was underseasoned. Wagyu Meatballs and sauce were excellent! Waiter argued back when I explained why we didn't want him to pack the Wagyu or asparagus up.

    The service was excellent but the food was not really worth the price. Way too expensive for food that was not that good. 1 steak $60-80 , but comes with no sides, nothing. Had to purchase individually. Ridiculous!!

    Nestled within the vibrant ambiance of Margaritaville Hotel in Hollywood Beach, Florida, JWB Steakhouse promises a satisfying dining experience with its delectable offerings. During my recent visit, I savored the hearty dishes and commendable service, though not without a few minor setbacks. Upon entering JWB Steakhouse, we were greeted warmly by our waiter, who promptly attended to our needs and provided helpful recommendations. His knowledge of wine added an extra layer of enjoyment to our meal. The food itself was undeniably delicious, with each dish bursting with flavor. However, some items were a tad saltier than desired, slightly overshadowing an otherwise enjoyable dining experience. Despite this, the attentive service remained a standout aspect of our visit. Our waiter ensured our glasses were always filled and our requests promptly fulfilled, enhancing the overall dining experience. Unfortunately, our reservation was not honored on time, resulting in a thirty-minute delay. While this was disappointing, it did not significantly detract from the overall enjoyment of our meal. In summary, JWB Steakhouse offers a satisfying culinary experience within the lively atmosphere of Margaritaville Hotel. While there were minor issues such as saltiness in some dishes and a delay in seating, the delicious food and commendable service make it a worthwhile dining destination. I look forward to returning to JWB Steakhouse to indulge in its flavorful fare once again.

His assistant Terrence was especially attentive and present in the moment for us making sure all of the little things that matter were in place and not of concern for us. We truly enjoyed our entire experience. Thank you both

    Went with my significant other to JWB Prime Steak and Seafood for Valentine’s Day. The staff were attentive, knowledgeable, and friendly. They ensured our water was always filled, finished dishes taken away, and all of our needs taken care of. Our waiter was humorous and made great recommendations when helping us decide between different steak dishes. Would absolutely recommend to any family or couple looking for a comfortable, fine-dining experience or to celebrate a special occasion.

    For the price we would have thought all would be amazing. We have been to all sorts of steak houses and it was good but in comparison to others, not drastically better. Service was very good, ambience fine. The kitchen made an error with one of our meals and it was corrected but it meant we were without our meals for longer. The manager came over to apologize but nothing else was done for us while we waited. Again - fine. But in other restaurants we might have received a discount or a drink/dessert on the house. It was all very good and nice but we could go to many other places for same experience and better value.

    The food, the service and the overall ambiance of the evening was perfect. We had an 8:00 reservation and we were seated at 8:30 PM. We were very impressed that the chef came out to check on how our steaks and lobster were cooked, in addition to the great wait staff! Definitely will be returning.

    Overall great place.... But disappointing that advertising has sushi all over it but no sushi menu available. Steak was delicious but was spicy. I happen to like spicy but it wasn't listed on menu with peppercorn crust. Brussel sprouts were a bit oily. Service was wonderful. Compared to steak houses on same level a bit overpriced for the quality but would eat here again no question.
