Great ambiance, incredible service and good food. Steaks prepared very nice but have had better filets. Priced about right for the food - but if looking for a fun good dinner evening would recommend.

One of the best “steak house meals”- beats Ruth’s Chris by far! Started with great cocktails, they smoked my husbands old fashioned, the pageantry was incredible. Shrimp cocktail was plump fresh and large. Hearty delicious portion of burrata and tomatoes. The Japanese wagyu steak was off the charts! Added a half order of Alaskan king crab….wow! Finished with the banana cream pie and almond joy martini, what a great dinner! The service was excellent, our waitress Sy was so attentive and friendly! Will definitely be back-thank you

Our service at JWB was immaculate. Sai is a true treasure. We tried both specials for the night, including the A5 Wagyu beef, which our server kindly recommended splitting as it is a very rich dish. This was the perfect recommendation. He also pointed out a wonderful wine I hadn't tried before, based on one we did like. Everything from the ambiance to the decor to the food to the service was perfection. We will definitely be back.

The waiter was not attentive to our table needs. The side items were not hot. He would disappear and their was a clear communication barrier when communicating. This was my second time going to this establishment and was excited to go back to celebrate my daughters birthday. This experience comparatively speaking was vastly different. Excellent the first time and a struggle this time to rate favorable.

Located in the Margaritaville Hotel, the JWB is you typical steakhouse. The French Onion soup is excellent and so are the steaks. Large dining room that can accommodate big groups.

Overall the food and service were very good. Had a nice New Years dinner. Dessert was disappointing boxed pre made desserts and not fresh hence not giving them 5 stars. Worth a visit but get dessert elsewhere.

A good overall dinner, not great. The quality of the meat was very good but it was bland -- needed better seasoning. The service was good. We did have to wait 20 minutes for a table even with a reservation.

We were in-town for Orange Bowl game. Saw the reviews for JWB Prime and gave it a try.
Outstanding service. Waiter was attentive and very personable.

Steaks and seafood were perfectly prepared. Family-style side dishes were large enough for a table of four.

Pricing was a little high but you get what you pay for.

We greatly enjoyed our visit and look forward to returning.

Pluses: Surf n Turf, friendly service
Minuses: wine runner switched a $25 glass of wine and a $11 glass at our table, sushi was average at best, ambiance and noise level were hotel-ish.

Great food casual atmosphere. Perfect place to have fine dining food without the stuffiness. We brought our 9 month old and can say we would do it again. Bone-in ribeye was great and cooked perfectly med-rare. Server was fantastic too.

On vacation staying at a nearby hotel, we were able to get a early reservation and everything was amazing. Our server was new but very knowledgeable and all of his recommendations were spot on. including the bone- in filet was out of this world.

The place is beautiful but extremely overpriced and steak was awful.lacked seasoning and flavor ! Left them hungry and we ordered additional side of potatoes . The service was wonderful though and staff very attentive. We were hoping for better experience for Christmas Eve. The quality of food didn’t match the price

This is a place we go to when we want to splurge. The blue point oysters & shrimp were delicious. The king crab legs were ok. The steak entrees was cooked perfectly very tender could cut the meat with a fork. Banana cream pie was perfect to end the evening.
