                                                            Food was ok, tasted like fast imitation food that was shipped to you frozen and you just threw on a grill cooked and put on plates all prettied up. VERY DISAPPOINTED FOR THE COST. The "Lobster" Hashbrown tasted like cardboard. I am sure a fast food place could have made better fish.

                                                            Horribly average experience for the price. I've had better meals and overall experiences at much lesser expensive restaurants. For the price, would've expected much better. Value severely lacking. Server looked like a deer in the headlights when I asked him about the bar's Scotch selection. Had to run to the bar to provide the answer. When asked about more details about the dinner specials he mentioned, he pulled out his cell phone to show me a picture. You'd expect a better level of preparation when spending $250 for a dinner for two. Calamari was overcooked and the breading was dense and heavy. Wife didn't particularly love her grouper special. Brussel sprouts were burnt. My porkchop special reminded me of something you'd get at a fast paced Miami Cuban restaurant, for a 1/4 of the price. At $80, just horribly "okay". I've dined at family casual places for a fraction of the cost and have had better food and a better server experience. I've dined at much fancier joints and been absolutely blown away by everything. This place was just meh and wouldn't be a place I'd consider returning, which is a shame because it seemed to be rated pretty highly on Opentable. Now that I read more reviews, it seems like many others share the same sentiment - overpriced for what you get.

                                                            I watched my food sit in the window wondering where my server is. He was walking in and out of the kitchen. The food came cold and took forever to get the check. I paid $40 something for a sliver of salmon on a salad.

                                                            Special for Mother’s Day. The restaurant was great, food and service. Only negative was the valet took over 30 min to get our car and then lied about why it took so long. They basically forgot, human error is understood but don’t lie and make up a story. Put a damper on the entire event.

Our server was kind, attentive, and made excellent recommendations (even though I’m sure everything on the menu was as delicious as the items we ordered). I especially loved how many assistant servers were available because our drinks were never empty, plates never sat on the table, and crumbs were cleaned promptly. Temperature on the steaks were perfect. They even brought us a complimentary dessert to celebrate our new baby.

                                                            Outrageous pricing. Continual effort to upsell. Pretty much ignored because we ordered the cheapest dinners on the menu with side $45. Bill with water, 4 mains and one side, $310.

                                                            Johnny was the head waiter. He was a seasoned professional and explained the restaurant special offering. We decided on one of his recommendations. Very for Australian beef, Delmonico cut. Cook to perfection.

                                                            Came for 5 year anniversary dinner. Seated at 6:55pm. Ordered drinks right away. Appetizers came at 7:25pm. Still no drinks or water. We had to tell the waiter to stop bringing food until we at-least got a drink. Ordered filet med rare. Was less than rare. I would have eaten it if it was close to rare. Picture doesn’t really do it justice. Obviously came back way over cooked as there is no way to cook it properly after being cut into. Wife said salmon at Margaritaville restaurant was 10x better than salmon at JWB. Really wanted to have a great dinner. Disappointed.

                                                            For the food quality and lack of service I would not consider this a prime steakhouse. They should just serve regular steaks so people aren’t so disappointed. Everything I was served was burnt or over cooked.

                                                            Quality ingredients, good atmosphere, excellent meal along with deliberately crafted cocktails (not just drinks). Filet cut was very good, salmon perfectly cooked, sides excellent. Service was stretched and absent at times, but to be expected during the post-COVID days. Be mindful that margaritaville music will play throughout the meal, so intimacy is limited.

                                                            Steaks were amazing, and way over priced. Can't image having your entire family here for dinner without taking out a home equity loan first.

                                                            Truly an excellent meal. The staff were fantastic and helpful without interrupting the flow of our meal. We were there for a 5:30pm reservation so more guests were filing in as we finished. But it was an excellent ambiance for our meal.
