I took my wife here last week for her birthday dinner. I used Open Table and noted a quiet corner table, if available. We were greeted by the very nice hostess who had reserved our corner table and wished my wife a happy birthday. Nice touch. I'm glad we were in the corner because it is pretty loud. It's a... More

After a disappointing meal the night before at Blue Fish, we ended up at BB's. SO much better! The triggerfish was perfectly prepared and the bread pudding was amazing. The server was fantastic and helpful. Interesting modern decor. A little pricey, but better value with the price fixed menu for $30 for a three course meal. I've heard it is... More

Wow ... That was so loud my ears are literally ringing. Eclectic little place near the riverwalk where the tables are all brutally close together and the decibel levels are way up there. Multiple times got bumped into by a poor server trying to go between me and other tables. It was an art form watching the servers try to... More

This restaurant was close to our hotel so my wife and I decided to give it a try based on some of the reviews we had read. It was an excellent choice! The prix fixe menu was great value and the food was well presented and well prepared. The restaurant itself was very busy when we went ( which we... More

I've been here several times over the years, mostly for lunch. The food is always fresh and prepared to perfection. We had a birthday party for a friend this weekend and although there were 18 of us attending, the server took quite good care of us. The menu varies quite a bit and I like that. There's always something new... More

bb's doesn't look that exotic, but the menu has a number of surprises. I had vermillion snapper, which was excellent. The others had the Prix Fixe menu and were pleased throughout. The waitstaff was attentive, but not too busy to explain some of the more unusual offerings, and they got us out in time for the theater! I absolutely plan... More

Oh my! Pure bliss. From the Tuscan White Bean and Kale Soup, to the Almond Crusted Calamari to the Duck Wonton Napoleon...words can't begin to describe the wonderfulness of this restaurant. I wished I lived in Jacksonville, so I could eat there daily. There is nothing on the menu that is not exceptional. Friends that live in Jacksonville and met... More

My wife & I have just returned from 3 months in Jacksonville. As we enjoy good food we dined at all the best restaurants in Jacksonville (and Amelia Island). Overall BB's was our favorite for lunch and dinner. The food is very good. The shrimp bisque is delicious, the crab dishes are imaginative and the fish is freshly sourced each... More

We were visiting Jacksonville for the weekend and used TripAdvisor to find BB's, listed as third best place in town. We agree - It was very good! We went back two days later for lunch on our way out of town. Try it. You will not be sorry. Their prices are very good too.

Great happy hour spot. wonderful drinks and desserts! First impressions wasn't so good (no one greeted us, a bit too formal), but once seated, the service was good and there was lots of selection. Our group did appies, wine, cocktails, and the dessert case.
