The ambiance the food and the people were spectacular. Above all, please, yourself a favor and ask for Patrick to be your server. His patience and attentiveness with us and more so with my kids made our experience all the more enjoyable!

Great addition to Hollywood beach. Choices are always a good idea. We had a very nice dinner, good steak house and seafood choices are offered. Venue is excellent, service is personal and professional. We made reservation for dinner mentioned to waiter that it was a...birthday and when dessert arrived we had a birthday treat, so personal and very impromptu.More

My wife and I stopped by for a date night and had a great first time. The food was amazing and drinks were perfect. Shelida and Patrick outdid them selves, very personable and ecommended the bone in rib-eye and augratin potatoes along with the outstanding...key lime pie. The total experience was out of this world. We will definitely be back.More

Very disappointed. The food and service was so-so, and prices were very high. Especially when compared to other choices in the immediate area.

We wanted a really good steak and saw this place on the list of where to go. It’s in a great location and they validate parking if you park in the attached garage. Make a reservation! The customer service was amazing! Our server was very...knowledgeable about the menu and all around just awesome. There is an extensive wine list and a selection of steak cuts. We got the crab cake appetizer and it was soft and delicious. My husband got the bone in filet, it was a little undercooked towards the bone but he finished the entire thing! I had the filet chef specialty menu item which came with fries and green beans. I thought there were just going to be enough to compliment the steak but they were full on side portions. We also go the mashed potatoes and macaroni table sides, both really good! We tried a few fine dining places in the area and this one was our favorite.More

Very nice atmosphere and food is good. We got the shrimp cocktail and raw oysters for appetizers. Steak and fresh grouper for dinner. Drinks were great! The best part however was the service! Everyone is so nice and went above and beyond! Chocolate cake is...yummy for dessert!More

We were staying at the Margaritaville Resort Hotel for Easter Weekend. We went back and forth with which specialty dinner we should go to for the day. We both had a New York Strip. It was slightly over cooked but there just wasn’t any flavor...to it. In addition the end was so well done that I couldn’t even cut into it. The potatoes came out hot and delicious. We also got a piece of key lime pie. The taste was very good but we had to hold onto our wine glasses to cut into the crust since it was so hard it shook the table with our efforts. The convenience of walking down from our room into the restaurant was really the only plus. Steaks were not worth the $57.00 each. Everything else about the resort was great.More

Just had an amazing birthday dinner for our 19 year old while on vacation. Crab cakes (some of tastiest ever) followed by filet, roasted chicken, and ribeye with mashed potatoes and mac and cheese as sides. Surprise lava cupcake for birthday girl and keylime pie...for all. Our server Manny took the best care of us! Really appreciate the memorable experience.More

Just thought this was going to be an average, overpriced, hotel restaurant...WOW was I ever wrong! Outstanding food & service, warm ambiance, great drinks...they have it all. Decent wine menu as well. And save room for the desserts, you'll thank me! The steaks are really...outstanding, specifically, the 14oz bone-in filet...excellent. Before & after dinner and all through the week, we always enjoyed cocktails in the main bar area of JWB, which is in view of the lobby, but not "in" the lobby. Everything you can imagine and they know how to make it, just the way you like it. They do a nice jobl High recommendations ~More
