Went here for a birthday brunch with a couple girlfriends. Service was top notch. They made me feel special and acknowledged my birthday. The calamari was good, not the best. The goat cheese salad was absolutely delicious. Who knew a salad could be so good!...The sourdough bread stuffed with goat cheese. The tasty candied walnuts. Mmm. The triple chocolate cake was good, not my fav. We also had the dulce de Leche cheesecake which was good. Loved the crust and the caramel spots but it did get to a point of just solid cheesecake that was a little bland but I still enjoyed.More

Loved this restaurant. Some of the most creative cooking we have had in years. While we did not like everything (crab cakes mostly breading), would love to go back to see what is new on the menu. Great wine list with solid options at all...price points. Happy hour one of best in town for both food and drinks. Make sure you get a reservation - with such a good happy hour, it fills up early.More

The staff was very friendly and our server Emily was very good. We started with the shrimp lollipops and the duck wonton napoleon. For dinner we had the seared diver scallops, braised beef short ribs and the seared yellowfin tuna. For dessert we ordered the...chocolate ganache cake and the white chocolate raspberry cake, the dessert cake slices were the biggest we ever had. Rolls and butter were also served. We would go back as we had a good experience. They do offer happy hour.More

My husband and I enjoyed a very nice meal at BB’s. The restaurant has an eclectic look mixing rustic with modern decor. Most people were dressed in nice shorts, slacks and sundresses. I tried the white and red sangria’s and they were both very good....We started with the fried green tomatoes with pimento and sweet bacon chutney and it was wonderful. My husband had the halibut and said it was very good and the Caesar salad that I had was great as well. BB’s has tons of desserts so it was hard to choose, but we shared the Boston cream cake and it did not disappoint. Thanks to Hailey who provided excellent service.More

BB’S was near our hotel so gave it a try.. WOW! It was very busy so decided to sit at bar. Darius, our bartender/server was excellent. Very pleased with our food choices- grilled shrimp scampi, daily soup, fried green tomato blt , the bacon was...the star! Dessert was cherry, peach cobbler with a huge dollop of vanilla ice cream.. If we didn’t live 35 miles away it would definitely be a go to place. Husband can’t stop raving about BB’S to anyone that will listen. Dining experience made us forget about next day surgery.. I’d suggest reservations.More

Me and my family were on Jax Beach vacationing. Having a cousin living in the area for 2 years and not seining him in 12 years we decided to have a party of 12 family Reunion. Little pricey but worthy, It was great food and...great service from Darios.More

My wife and I have been here for lunch, dinner, and now, finally brunch. First things first, always try to make a reservation as it ensures a seamless experience (especially for dinner). The brunch lives up to all the hype. I had the french toast...and my wife had the banana fosters pancakes. Both incredible. The Bellini's are refreshing and the corned beef hash is very good (could use more corned beef IMO). Service is always excellent and the desserts will more than satisfy any sugar craving you desire and are amazing as well.More

We were in Jax for one night and stumbled upon bb’s. Thank goodness we did because this place is fantastic! We had one of the best meals we’ve had in years. We had the scallops and the shrimp scampi, both of which were scrumptious. The...delicious rolls are to die for and don’t skip dessert! We’d highly recommend bb’s as a go to place in Jax!!More

My wife and I have lived in the greater JAX area for two years and have probably been to every place imaginable for dinner. Sometimes we want upscale for a special occasion, sometimes we want very laid back, and sometimes we look for an nice...place that we could go to regardless. Finding great food, great service, great menu selection, and great dessert options in one place has been challenging. LOOK NO MORE! This is our new favorite place to go regardless of the occasion. The ONLY thing it's missing is it's not waterfront but once you're inside it doesn't matter. It has a cozy and safe ambience with an open kitchen and dessert display case that you have to see to appreciate. We have not found a place with the quality of food and service (even at higher price points) in NE Florida. I highly recommend trying this place for lunch or dinner. They also offer brunch which I cannot wait to try.More
