Wonderful! Food was good, service was superb and the drinks generous pours! We are locals and always feel comfortable when Tommy is our server. We took a couple of friends who have never been there and they just loved it… And Tommy!

We dined at JWB for our anniversary and looked forward to a great experience. The recommended special of Tuna was fair and the side with it were bland. The bone in filet was dry and did not have good flavor at all. We ordered the special lobster hashbrown and were disappointed that it was tasteless. They served us pumpkin cheesecake for our anniversary and once again we were not impressed. Overall, the service was great but the food was poor. We won’t eat there again.

Service was fantastic. Food was vey good but I was disappointed in the quality of my steak. It was seasoned good and cooked correctly. It just wasn’t a great cut of meat. I had the bone in rib-eye. Sides and desserts were excellent.

Fantastic food, service and experience. Located in the Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort which looks fun. I will be staying at the resort soon after seeing it.

When we left and were just about to leave the parking lot, a woman from the restaurant called me to let me know that my girlfriend left an item on the table. I quickly went back and retrieved it. That was a really nice gesture to call us.

Absolutely one of the very best dinning experiences ever. The service was impeccable. The food was incredible. The oysters were from Nantucket. Absolute the best Ive ever had. The Tomahawk steak was beyond comprehension. It was truly that delicious…. The sides were outstanding. Desert, banana cream pie was the very best ever.
Overall its not cheap but well worth every dollar. The service was terrific. The other restaurants located in the hotel should take lessons from this place on how to cook and serve. JWB should considered one of worlds best steak restaurants.

I am disappointed in my dining experience at JWB. At first, the experience started off fine with my waiter being attentive but then the food took extremely long for my meal, which was steak so nothing out of their ability. My waiter was neglectful and we had to get another waiters attention for dessert menu. Even after, our waiter took forever & we decided to pass on dessert to not continue this experience. We had to ask another waiter for our check and to ultimately pay for our meal. Our waiter was nowhere to be found (except at other tables) for over 20 minutes. That was just the experience. For the food, the steak was delicious but the lobster was absolutely dry and not worth the cost. The creme spinach had chunks of cheese in it and not fully blended out. Disappointed as this was a birthday dinner and was noted in the reservation, yet no birthday dessert was brought out and the food/service were mediocre at best.

This place looked like an after thought. I was a studio set not a real restaurant. The soup was room temp and didn't take very good. When I spoke to the server he had a planned response as this has happened before. It was my fault not the Chef. This hotel has a great location on the ocean but you would never know it from this restaurant. It was in the front of the hotel and there was 0 view. My steak was cooked perfectly but the lobster was very over cooked. I didn't eat very much at this place. I would say it is a good place to lose weight. $238 for two people and only one glass of wine. I left hungry.

It was our 40th Anniversary and my birthday so my brother and sister in law came and met us at the resort because we were guests there. This is our second visit to Margaritaville and JWB is our place fo go. Last time we had dinner 4 out of our 6 day visit and last night we took our in laws there. From the moment we walked in it was unbelievable. My sister in law had the Tomahawk steak and said it was so delicious. Everything and everyone there was wonderful. The food is outstanding. My brother and sister in law couldn’t believe how they never went there because they have been in the area many times. They were totally amazed from beginning to end. Myself and my husband will be there again on Saturday night before we head back to New York. I would this a rating but there is not one high enough for this outstanding restaurant. It was such a wonderful experience.

Overall very disappointing. The table was small and had a two person settee that was uncomfortable while trying to eat. We ordered the Tomahawk ribeye which barely fit on the table. It should have been brought out, shown to the table, and then cut off the bone and served. The ribeye was just ok. For the price, it should have been fantastic. It was not as good as other top steak houses. We also felt rushed the whole meal. Things were taken off the table without us being asked if we were done. We had to stop the servers from removing dessert before we were finished. It was also very noisy. We ate at Eddie V's several weeks ago in Ft. Lauderdale. No comparison.

Overall excellent. our server Manny was great. My filet with peppercorn was very good Just the right amount of of spiciness.. My wife's salmon was very good the 2nd time. had to send it back because it was overdone.. We loved the lobster hash Brown. Just enough lobster. Small pieces but we love hashbrown's. Would come back.
