JBs is a must do each time we go to New Smyrna. It is quite popular and always crowded (then again we go mainly on weekends.) Last visit was a cooler Sunday around 3 pm so we were surprised it was so packed. We didn't wait long though. We had the steamed shrimp and my husband dreams of it for weeks afterwards. Our whole group loved it. We also had steamed oysters which were very good. Hush puppies were great (maybe the best I've had). A friend had the crab sandwich and was amazed at how much crab was on it. Some things can get pricey but we stick with a bunch of steamed appetizers and do ok. We then sat on the docks and had cocktails while watching live music. Beautiful sunset and tons of dolphins swimming was a great end to a great meal. One negative was getting a server that figures they can get away with volume over quality of service. Our server warned us about getting iodine poisoning if we ate too much shrimp (total turnoff!) and would not let us sit at the table and have more cocktails after we had finished eating. he said we would have to go to the bar to place our drink order. Then 2 of the employees were involved in a very serious fist fight in the parking lot next to our car. So they may need to work a bit on the professionalism of the staff (even if this is a fish camp!). Lastly the restrooms are bad. They really need a revamp and always smell awful and sometimes do not work very well.
