The food wasn’t bad just slightly bland. Definitely overpriced for what you were getting. The restaurant itself is very nice and the service was good. But if we compared it to Billy’s it was not better. Billy’s food and service were awesome and pricing was much better. Also beautiful intercoastal view. The convenience of JWB was that we didn’t have to leave the hotel only run downstairs which was nice since it was raining.

The service was good (except the hostess).. Food was all cold and mussels were gross. Disappointing for what they charge.

I had their lobster bisque - just OK. We had halibut and lamb chops. Both outstanding. Excellent service. We were seated promptly on a Saturday evening. It's a bit noisy and definitely pricey.

Not worth the price. This place has a long way to go to be considered fine dining, and the food was nothing out of the ordinary or even special.
We had the wedge salad, which was tiny, fancily plated, and bland. We had the crab cakes, which were tasty but could have done with a bit more sauce, as that was the only flavor other than the crab. My husband had the fish special, Golden Tile Fish. The serving of fish was so small you could barely discern it on the plate. I had the chicken dish, it was satisfactory but not worthy of the price.
The appetizer special was Stone Crab Claws; one for $50 or two for $95. Oh my...
Maybe if we’d had steak we would have been impressed?

JWB’s is a very good steakhouse, and we are from Chicago so we have a good basis for comparison. Steaks were good. Servers were polite. Ambience in the restaurant was elegant. I would recommend

Excellent food, appetizers, main dishes all excellent. VERY noisy, dining room too open with tables too close together. Much too noisy, nothing to buffer sounds. Would recommend for quality of food, with WARNING to expect a very noisy dining experience.

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.

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.
