JB's is an Oceanside restaurant overlooking the Atlantic and the long fishing pier at Deerfield Beach, FLA. They feature a casual but not too beachy of a setting. Grilled fish and Mediteereanean foods were very good. The outdoor seating (covered) offer a great view of the volleyball courts on-the-beach.

We came based on hotel recommendation. Arrived around 5pm for a family dinner 'on the beach'. Over 1 hour to wait for outside so we were seated inside. Decor was good but atmosphere was a party. People drunk and music was load. Food was better than expected, but a limited menu and expensive. Ribs and mahi were good. Staff and... More

Stopped in off the beach because we heard some great live music coming from the bar. We wound up staying for a quick bite & we were happy we did. The atmosphere is typical beach bar - casual & fun. It can get super crowded so seating can be a problem. Especially when there is live music, the crowd seemed... More

There wasn't anything to dislike. Our food was phenomenal, from the calamari, to the Mahi, to the mussels, to the wine selection, and the live steel drums were a great addition, but it was our waiter, Luis, who really made the night for us. I will be back to this restaurant

Yes, I know the reviews are great but truth be told my rating of "average" may be too high. My last two visits to this venerable restaurant were average or below and certainly not worth the cost -- ocean view or no. The two dishes we had -- firecracker scallops and fish & chips were unceremoniously plated. The scallops were... More

We went here because of all the great reviews and perhaps our expectations were too high. The atmosphere and location are fantastic. The service was good although we felt like we were being rushed so they could turn the table. We had the calamari appetizer and it was overdone in my opinion and just kind of blah. I had the...

Visited Deerfield Beach during Christmas vacation and this place was rated highly on Trip Advisor so thought we'd give it a try. The only complaint was the expense. We had made reservations and we were seated immediately. Our server, Desiree, was very competent and friendly. I had delicious crispy coconut shrimp with fries and coleslaw and hubby had wonderful salmon... More

Went there on the recommendation of a friend who lives in the area. We ordered the shrimp and lobster wrap to share and each of our halves had fish in the cut part of the wrap. Once you took a bite or two all the fish was gone and the wrap was just filled with lettuce and a few chopped... More

The drinks, appetizers, entrees and service were all good enough. That is not a bad thing. In fact it is quite good. But nothing stood out enough to praise. And more importantly, nothing stood out as bad. For the large crowd, the kitchen is well disciplined, the bar works well, but the front of the house people are too distracted.
