I have been eating there since 1986. What Byron has done with the place since the fire is nothing short of awsome!!! I highly recommend BWB to everyone!

this is a new place in town. they are a bit pricy and they have a limited menu for non seafood eating customers. but i had a ribeye steak that was the best tasting steak i have ever had only problem. they dont know how to cook a steak with no pink.. i said no pink.. it was bright pink with a bit of running blood. you get the basic meal. no frills . no crackers or bread. the view is worth the trip just to sit and look at the river. i will go back again to try them one more time. but at this point they are a bit pricy for my taste.. they have 4 other restaurants that they need to take lessons from on the menu. the menu was very limited for me.. but for a seafood lover it is great

As we we passing though this part of Florida, we were pleased to find a place with great food, service and ambiance! I love dining with a view over water and here we are right on the St John's river! Service was excellent and the food was so much better than expected!

We ordered gator bites that were lightly breaded, fried and served with a tangy sauce. This was followed by the Grouper sliders with a fresh mango slaw and a green salad with grilled shrimp. The dressing choices were house made and the shrimp, perfectly cooked!

The white wine list could be expanded a bit but as we were celebrating the birth of a new grand son we were happy to toast with a California Chardonnay!

Dining here again would be a pleasure!

This new restaurant is a jewel. Opened in December, it is waiting to be discovered by the locals. Frankly, it is better seafood than the other local restaurants!!!

The shrimp was delicious... Lightly breaded and tender! Service was excellent as was the view.

This restaurant is not to be missed!

Great indoor and outdoor dining on the St. Johns RIver. The lightly fried shrimp and the chicken quesadillas are our favorites.
