JB's is an unassuming fish camp on the Indian River Lagoon. Brown paper is the table covering for everyone and paper towels are the extra napkins. But the food is good. I had rock shrimp cakes which were delicious, but were adorned with a too spicy sauce. Everyone else liked their dirty rice, which was too spicy for me. Cajun... More

Went with five other people and we all loved our meals. The hush puppies were wonderful. My husband loved the fish scampi. Great corn on the cob. You get a lot food and leave with a full stomach. After dinner we went out back and saw some manatees and a beautiful sunset. Great night!

Recommended by the front desk at Coastal Waters and what a find! We had the fish dip (smokey and good), Shrimp Basket (perfectly cooked) and Scallop Basket (sweet and tender). Also had a side of hush puppies which were "da bomb"! Our server, Michelle was excellent, as was the waterfront dining ambiance. We walked out on the boardwalk and watched... More

While the service was excellent, the food was anything but, somehow dry fried grouper? My wife's mahi sand which was good with fries and clam chowder that was more like a potato soup. The beer was in a plastic cup and tasted like it was 3 years old. (Yuengling) I've lived in central Florida 20 years and never tried this... More

Really fresh fish and clams. Loved the sweet hush puppies. Fun location right on the "river". We had grouper, oyster stew and steamed clams. All were delicious.

Best to go before sundown if you want to sit outside.. the bugs will drive you inside if you go then. Otherwise, good local fare and food.

Great food, fair prices, very pleasant outdoor dining and good service. The music is an added bonus, makes the experience all the better. This is a fun place to bring kids and... More

Dillon was our waiter and was very attentive. We sat outside and listened to the live band playing great music. We had ahi tuna appetizer and would go back just for that. The drink menu is extensive and the atmosphere is very friendly on the water. this is a must see place.

Rustic , on the water and just what you would expect - fabulous sunset view. Many local fish straight from their socks - but crab with fresh corn and new potatoes a personal favorite - kid friendly too! Many Months you can see manatees out back
