The place to go

I found out after the fact that this place packs out before the show at the near by Florida Theatre. Fortunately we were able to get a reservation by phone, the late afternoon of the Jackson Browne show. Something about the pleasant voice on the phone led me to believe this place is run well.

Was an absolutely a great lunch. Best Crab Cake Sandwich you will ever have! Other order was the Salmon Salad. Both the dressing on the salad and the pesto on the salmon were wonderful. And we did take a dessert with us! Hope you enjoy as much as we did.

I ordered the crab cake and a side for lunch, followed by the rocky road cake. It was the great. Great food and great service. The restaurant is very upscale from the inside.

My husband and I were visiting Jacksonville and wanted to go for a light dinner near our hotel. I found bbs on Trip Advisor and saw that it was close by. So we went to the restaurant and decided on a few appetizers. The stuffed bruschetta was delicious. The mozzarella was melted between the slices of a small baguette. It... More

Stopped off here this evening with own colleagues after work for a quick bite to eat, having had this well recommended by many of the locals as being one of the best downtown restaurants - though in a downtown that is actually quite bereft of choice. I really liked the ambience of the place, which is modern and has good... More

We were meeting an associate at 3:00pm and decided to try bb's for a late lunch. The menu was limited; however, we were very satisfied with the choices.A unique choice was the fried green tomato BLT which was delicious. The Cobb Salad was large and well prepared. The waiter was very helpful and suggested we try their dessert. Taramisu Cake... More

We really enjoyed our stay at BB's Restaurant. The food and drinks were fantastic. It was late on Valentine's day so the server might have been a bit tired. He did know the menu well and answered every question we had. We will be back again!

Came in for dinner and was a little surprised at the price tag, but the food was very good. The staff was friendly and the atmosphere was very nice. I had one of the sandwiches which was the lower price option and enjoyed it very much. The side choices were a bit unique. Overall it was good.

We've been ten or 15 times for lunch, normally on Friday. We finally got smart, realized Friday lunch was busy and started making reservation. The food and service are always terrific.
